Easy to use


Each Raymarine LifeTag pendant broadcasts a unique identification code back to the Raymarine LifeTag base station, telling it that its wearer is "safe."


The lightweight Raymarine LifeTag pendant can be easily attached to your life jacket, PFD, safety harness or belt. Its featherweight (1.5 ounces) and compact size make it unobtrusive and easy to wear. Raymarine LifeTag's state-of-the-art electronics ensure a long battery life in excess of 2000 hours.

In an emergency


In the event of an actual man overboard situation, the victim's LifeTag signal is rapidly degraded by immersion in water, or as the distance between the victim and boat increase (typically 30 feet.)


The LifeTag base station responds automatically by sounding an audible alarm onboard to roust other crew members.


Each Raymarine LifeTag is also fitted with a manual activation button. Pressing and holding the button for three seconds will manually trigger the system. This enables crew members to call for assistance in case of fire, flooding, medical emergency or other situations where an immediate response is needed.





Standalone or Integrated


Standalone Configuration


If a crew member falls overboard, or strays out of range - typically 9m (30') - contact with the base-station is lost and a loud alarm sounds.


SeaTalk Network


If you have a Raymarine SeaTalk network equipped with Raymarine multifunction displays or Raymarine ST60+ Graphic, ST70 or ST70+ instruments, an emergency Man Overboard alarm will be activated on the multifunction displays and instruments. In addition, the multifunction display will show an emergency waypoint (MOB) which is created automatically when the alarm is activated; it will also show the coordinates of and bearing to that emergency waypoint.


If the SeaTalk network contains a Raymarine ST60+ Graphic, then this too will automatically display the coordinates and bearing. This information can then be used to navigate back to the position where the MOB alarm was activated.
