ENOS-Beacon — Fabulous
is a result of consequent engineering research.
During development work our eyes were focused on divers’ needs. We demanded particularly high standards so that the Beacon stand the rough water sports business.
Handy and Compact
ENOS-Beacon is 20 cm / 7.87 inches long, has a diameter of 3,5 cm / 1.38 inches and weighs 165 grams / 0.36 lbs only including batteries!
It has no impact on the diver's buoyancy.
Thanks to its pouch there are several ways to attach the ENOS-Beacon to the diving equipment.
Robust Housing, Reliable Manufacturing
The ENOS-Beacon is very light — all the more it is very robust: No leaking problems!
All antennas are inside the housing, maximum protected against damage — this worldwide unique!
It's pressure proofed up to 330 feet / 100 meters, on request up to 660 feet / 200 meters.
Permanent Updates, Far Visible LED
All 20 seconds ENOS-Beacon relays its signal. The crew gets permanent an update from the drifting diver.
These short intervals guarantee a reliable transmission of the alert even at high waves:
If the diver is located in a wave hollow while ENOS-Beacon is relaying, it’s rather unlikely that the alert reach the ENOS-Receiver because the water wave absorbs ("swallows") the radio wave. But 30 or 60 seconds later the diver is positioned on the top of the wave from where the ENOS-Signal can be easily received.
At its top a far visible LED is placed which regularly blinks which increase safety enormously.
Additionally the LED shows the status of battery capacity as well as the mode of function
Easy to Handle
The switch of ENOS-Beacon is very easy to handle: Just turn the red foot by 180° — that’s it.
No confusing buttons which are difficult to handle with gloves (if at all …). Therefore ENOS-Beacon is easy to activate even with cold, icy fingers and even with thick dry-suit gloves.
After switching on the asymmetric position shows clearly "ON" (Figure right) — important and calming in such stressful situation!
Now, ENOS-Beacon just has to be hold above the surface (Photos above).
This is important for an error-free transmission of the alert because the water wave "swallows"/absorbs the radio wave.
The ENOS-Beacon relays its 1st Alert immediately to the ENOS-Receiver after activating.
After the GPS position
is evaluated, EOS-Beacon transmits the data automatically to the ENOS-Receiver ⇒ ENOS-PRINCIPLE
Now, the crew knows precisely where the divers drifting treibt — just a few minutes after they surfaced ⇒ ENOS-SCREEN
Receiving Range up to 5.6 Nautical Miles / 10 Kilometers
Depending on the height of the radio receiving antenna the receiving range of ENOS-System is up to 5.6 NM / 10 km.
Why Batteries instead of Rechargeable Batteries?
The ENOS-Beacon is powered by two AAA Lithium batteries, which are available all over the world. The change of batteries can be handled easily by the customer. No return to manufacturer, due to battery change!
The use of Lithium batteries has unbeatable advantages compared to rechargeable batteries::
- Rechargeable batteries lose capacity by times even when they were not used
- Rechargeable batteries must be recharged regularly and permanently
- An unnoticed power blackout during night has negative influence to the capacity of the rechargeable batteries
For Your Safety
Imagine, a diver drifts in the open sea and the rechargeable batteries of his beacon don’t bring 100 % performance — although it was recharged all night long — horrible ...!
This is the reason why we will never implement rechargeable batteries in our Seareq Rescue Beacons — because of your safety!
ENOS-Beacons are powered by Lithium batteries with a guaranteed capacity of 18 years! The batteries provide full performance even after many years. No loss of power, no regular check of the batteries capacities.
Our World Record: Outstanding Power Management
The current time of ENOS-Beacon takes 170 hours = 1 week!
This is world record of all emergency beacons, set by our developing engineers.
Thus the Beacon has always enough power, even after several rescue operations because an ENOS-Rescue takes just a few minutes in average. When the batteries have to be changed is clearly to see at the flash-lights of the LED and detailed described in the manual of ENOS-System.
