The MOB+™ Wireless Man OverBoard system is an innovative, ABYC compliant, life-saving safety device for your boat. It provides greater freedom of movement than a traditional kill switch lanyard, and stops the engine should you fall overboard. Up to four xFOBs can be connected to the xHUB™ at the same time, with one unit acting as the captain’s stop unit, and the additional three as alarm units for passengers.
The system consists of an easy to install xHUB (mounted on or near the boat console) and a wearable xFOB™. The two communicate wirelessly with each other and stop the engine when the xFOB is submerged in water or is beyond range of the xHUB. The xFOB can be worn on your wrist, around your neck, or clipped to your PFD using either the xBAND™ or xTAG™ accessories. The waterproof xFOB™ has more than 300 hours of battery life, and is powered by an easy to change standard coin cell battery. The xHUB™ connects to your boat power (12V-24V) and to your engine stopping system. Intuitive and easy to use through a one-click user interface. Compatible with all major Outboard and most Sterndrive engine brands.
The MOB+ Wireless Man OverBoard System is announced in conjunction with the 2017 IBEX Show (19-20th of September) in Tampa, Florida, and will be showcased at the FELL Marine booth #3804. Additionally, the MOB+ is participating in the IBEX Innovation Award for safety products.
