Wireless Safety System for Superyacht Tenders

Safety products manufacturer Autotether will feature its Wireless Lanyard System at METS (Marine Equipment Trade Show) 2010, November 16-18 at the Amsterdam RAI (Sea Tech & Fun Europe Stand 4.528).
Unlike traditional lanyards that come standard with superyacht tenders and require the skipper to be tethered to the boat, the patented Autotether is an easy-to-install, unobtrusive wireless unit. No wiring or tools are required – the system clips to the boat ignition switch and is self-powered with AAA batteries. Operating via transmitter that sends radio waves to a receiver connected to a boat’s engine, Autotether shuts off the engine in the event that the tenders operator falls into the water. It also sets off an alarm in the event that others in the tender including passengers wearing the Autotether sensors fall into the water.
The passenger sensors can also shut off the boat’s engine when the red alert button is pushed in the event that you have a runaway boat.
