Kannad SafeLink SOLO
The ultra-small SafeLink SOLO is tough and durable, lightweight and compact, designed to be carried with you at all times. The size of the SafeLink SOLO and it’s non-slip rubber armour; designed to protect it in the harshest environments, means the compact life saver can be tucked into a pocket, pouch or personal kit bag and forgotten about until needed. SafeLink SOLO is waterproof to 10 metres and activation is simple. It is supplied complete with a lanyard, a buoyancy pouch and a universal carry pouch; which can be attached to a belt or strap, keeping the SOLO close to hand, in case a life threatening situation necessitates alerting search and rescue organisations.
The SafeLink SOLO PLB is fantastic value for money; it should be a standard piece of equipment for safety conscious individuals who want peace of mind whilst performing to their full potential. As more and more people turn away from pyrotechnic flares for distress alerting, due to safety and disposal concerns, the SafeLink SOLO has emerged as a top class alternative for water sports and extreme sports enthusiasts.
The SafeLink SOLO PLB has integral 50-channel GPS which is constantly updated, ensuring that you can be accurately located, thus speeding up the time of rescue. The SafeLink SOLO PLB also transmits on the 121.5MHz homing frequency so that when the emergency services get close they can ‘home in’ on the signal. Once activated, the SafeLink SOLO PLB will transmit constantly for a minimum of 24 hours, and will operate at temperatures down to -20°C. It also has an SOS LED flashing light that the user can switch on to aid rescue in the dark.
