Technology helps safe release, free floating of life rafts, epirbs

LAD: List Angle Detection technology is introduced to automatically release life rafts and epirbs at a specified degree of list when a vessel capsizes. Released safety units reach the surface before the ship flips around. This significantly reduces the risk of being trapped or entangled in constructions on deck, explains LAD’s developer.

The List Angle Detection comprises control box with two activating outputs for the maker’s H20 ERUs. It has an integrated inclination sensor to automatically release the ERUs in case a vessel capsizes. The preset activation angle an be adjusted to suit different ships and vessels. There is also a pushbutton used to control manual activation. Output number two is activated automatically 2 sec after output one has been activated.
