StratumFive Ltd launch their second SSAS model – SeaGuard Lite V4 Ship Security Alert System complete with IsatDataPro (IDP) transceiver.

SeaGuard Lite V4 is our standard dedicated SOLAS X1.2.6 type approved standalone system that operates on the new INMARSAT IsatDataPro (IDP) satellite network. Designed to meet regulations with on board test functions, up to two separate alert zones and GPS jamming notification.

New installations come inclusive of all cabling and alert button requirements. Owners  upgrading from legacy D+ SSAS systems can take advantage of utilising existing SSAS cable runs, reducing upgrade or consolidation deployment and negating any technician charges.
