Marine Operation Warnings
• You are responsible for the safe and prudent operation of your vessel. This device is a tool to enable you to enhance your safety while operating your vessel. It does not relieve you from the responsibility of safely operating your vessel. Avoid navigational hazards and never leave the helm unattended.
• Always drive the boat carefully and in accordance with local laws.
• Use this device only as a safety aid. This device does not replace the cord based kill switch, and should be used at your own discretion and responsibility, knowing that in the event that you fall in your vessel the system may not automatically shut down your engine.
• This device will shut down your engine and give an alarm signal when you are out of wireless range or falls into the water within 2 seconds. Within the wireless range this device will not shut down the engine automatically e.g. if you fall in your boat within the wireless range the engine will not stop automatically. In this event, you can shut down the engine by pressing the button on your MOB+ xFOB or on the MOB+ xHUB. Always check your wireless range before use. The wireless range may vary from 5 – 20 meters depending on the wireless environment surrounding your vessel.
• Make sure that the system is working properly before leaving the dock. Refer to the section Using MOB+ in the User Manual for instructions on how to use the system and information about normal system operations.
• Always make sure to check the battery level sign on the xHUB before operating your vessel. Confer with section Battery Indication in the User Manual to check how many hours there are left of battery life on the xFOB.
• Never attempt fast speed or dangerous maneuvers of the boat, especially if battery level is low on the xFOB. Battery depletion of xFOB can cause sudden engine stop and result in loss of control or maneuverability of the boat.
• Do not leave your xFOB in the boat unobserved, this to prevent easy theft of the boat if the ignition key is also situated in the vessel. Please refer to the engine manufacturer for information regarding ignition and starting procedure of the engine.

CE SAR Compliance
This device meets the EU requirements (1999/519/EC) on the limitation of exposure of the general public to electromagnetic fields by way of health protection. The limits are part of extensive recommendations for the protection of the general public. These recommendations have been developed and checked by independent scientific organizations through regular and thorough evaluations of scientific studies. The unit of measurement for the European Council’s recommended limit for mobile devices is the “Specific Absorption Rate” (SAR), and the SAR limit is 2.0 W/ kg averaged over 10 gram of tissue. It meets the requirements of the International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP).
This device complies with Part 15 of the FCC Rules. Operation is subject to the following two conditions: (1) this device may not cause harmful interference, and (2) this device must accept any interference received, including interference that may cause undesired operation. Note: This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class B digital device, pursuant to part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference in a residential installation. This equipment generates, uses and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the instructions, may cause harmful interference to radio communications. However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation. If this equipment does cause harmful interference to radio or television reception, which can be determined by turning the equipment off and on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the interference by one or more of the following measures: Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna, Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver, Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to which the receiver is connected, Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help. WiMEA Boat Unit: This device complies with FCC RF radiation exposure limits set forth for an uncontrolled environment. The antenna used for this transmitter must be installed to provide a separation distance of at least 20 cm from all persons and must not be co-located or operating in conjunction with any other antenna or transmitter. WiMEA MOB Unit: This device is exempted from FCC SAR testing since the RF Output Power is below the exemption limit.
Wireless Safety and Compliance
Turn your wireless connection off in areas where wireless use is forbidden or when it may cause interference or danger. Some specific situations are described below. In general, you should not use your FELL devices with your wireless connection turned on any place you are not allowed to use a cellular device. To prevent possible interference with aircraft systems, aviation agencies require you to have permission from a crewmember to use your device’s wireless service. We do not recommend to use FELL devices when flying.
In some areas, the disposal of certain electronic devices is regulated. Make sure you dispose of or recycle all FELL devices in accordance with your local laws and regulations.
Other Electronic Devices
FELL devices generates, uses, and radiate radio frequency (RF) energy and, if not used in accordance with its instructions, may cause interference to radio communications and electronic equipment, i.e. if hardware or software is being tampered with or the device has become broken. FELL devices are designed and manufactured to only communicate with FELL devices. External RF signals may affect improperly installed or inadequately shielded electronic operating systems, entertainment systems, and personal medical devices. While most modern electronic equipment is shielded from external RF signals, if in doubt, check with the manufacturer or contact FELL for support. For personal medical devices (such as pacemakers and hearing aids), consult with your physician or the manufacturer to determine if they are adequately shielded from external RF signals, showing this user guide to the respective physician or manufacturer. In the unlikely event that you experience interference with other electronic devices, please contact customer support on: www.fellmarine.com/support or contact the manufacturer of the respective electronic device. There are some places where RF signals could constitute a hazard, such as health care facilities, and construction sites. If you are not sure, look around for signs indicating that two- way radios or cell phones should be turned off.
The FELL devices and/or methods used in association with the FELL devices may be covered by one or more patents or pending patent applications.
