Seattle-based Emerald Marine Products has released the Alert418 Man-Overboard Transmitter. Based on the company’s Alert2 Transmitter, Alert418 is smaller and lighter and can be worn attached to a PFD.

When immersed in water, the it automatically sends a signal to the receiver. There’s no delay, as with AIS, so crew are instantly notified and can initiate an immediate man-overboard rescue. The system can also set a waypoint or other digital action, and can be wired to kill the engine.

It retails for $289. For more information, visit www.emeraldmarineproducts.com.
