Innovative safety devices launched in Australia

Maritime Systems Australia, the sole Australian distributor for Blue Guard Innovations from the USA has introduced, two unique and revolutionary products BG-Link and BG-One

The BG-Link is a unique wireless boat monitoring and alert system with no subscription fee for its Wi-Fi only configuration. The BG-Link comes in three different types of configurations: BG-Link-W (Wi-Fi), and -G (Global Cellular)

BG-Link gateway and sensors monitors battery banks, high water alarms, rate of bilge pump activations, oil and fuel detection, fire alarm, temperature, AC shore power connection and security sensors. Alerts & alarms are received by text or email using the BG-Link app, available for iOS and Android devices via the App Store or Google Play or the BG-Link web browser interface.

The standard BG-Link system includes a BG-GWM gateway and one BG-WS-01 wireless sensor. Additional BG-WS wireless sensors are available, but unlike other boat monitoring systems, each BG-Link wireless sensor can monitor up to three critical boat functions, so fewer sensors are required to fully monitor and protect a boat. WiFi RRP $1170 inc GST. Global Cellular RRP $1570 inc GST

The BG-One (Smart Bilge Pump Switch with Oil and Fuel Detector) integrates with the bilge pump system to selectively pump out water and not oil or fuel, preventing the vessel from accumulating water and aiding in the prevention of costly oil or fuel spills.

The BG-One was developed in collaboration with the marine industry needing a reliable, long lasting bilge pump switch. Having no moving parts or float switches that can easily be damaged, the BG-One will automatically turn off the bilge pump when oil or fuel is detected before a costly spill occurs.

The BG-One will connect to any 12 or 24 Vdc bilge pump and alarm panel on the market today. The BG-One is CE and ISO 8846 Marine Ignition Protection Certified, tested to ABYC-1500 standards and utilises patented technology. RRP $380 Incl GST
