MOB+ is an electronically controlled, wireless cut-off switch which can be used on all boats. The MOB+ system consists of an easy to install xHUB mounted in your boat and one (1) wearable xFOB. The two (2) communicate wirelessly with each other.
As you step aboard your boat, press the xFOB to connect to the xHUB. A green light and an audio signal will confirm the connection and the engine can be started. Should a fall over board occur, the engine will be shut down. Engine shut down is initiated by the xFOB being under water or more than 50 feet from the xHUB. Six (6) seconds after shut down, passengers can restart the engine to save the person in the water. When leaving the boat press the xFOB once to disconnect.
The xHUB connects to power (12V-24V) and to your engine stopping system.
xFOB's offer a range of wearable options for you to be most comfortable using the system. The xFOB has more than 300 hours of battery life, and is powered by an easy to change standard coin cell (CR2032) battery.
Up to four (4) xFOB’s can be connected to the xHUB at the same time, with one (1) unit acting as the captain’s stop unit, and the additional three (3) as alarm units for passengers. Up to 20 xFOB's can be stored per xHUB.
