Important Information WARNINGS: LIFETAG SYSTEM 1. The Raymarine LifeTag System is an auxiliary safety system, intended ONLY to provide additional protection to the vessel's crew. DO NOT rely solely on this system for crew safety; DO ensure that all safety instructions and procedures are obeyed in accordance with local requirements. 2. Failure to operate the LifeTag System in accordance with its operating instructions may result in unreliable or reduced system performance. 3. The operation of some medical electronic devices, such as hearing aids and pacemakers, may be affected if a LifeTag or LifeTag Base Station is used next to them. Observe the manufacturers' recommendations for such devices.

CAUTION: LITHIUM BATTERIES The LifeTag System Tags use non-rechargeable lithium batteries. Do not attempt to recharge these batteries. Do not incinerate these batteries. Ensure that these batteries are replaced with batteries of the same type and check local regulations when disposing of spent batteries. Incorrectly fitting batteries or using the wrong battery types may result in unreliable or reduced system performance.

RF Energy The LifeTag and LifeTag Base Station are low-power radio transceivers. When on, they intermittently transmit RF energy (radio waves). The LifeTag and LifeTag Base Station are designed to comply with the limits for RF energy exposure for the general population set by national authorities and international health agencies, for example BS EN 50371:2002.

Intended Use The LifeTag and LifeTag Base Station are intended as an aid to safety on leisure vessels and small workboats.

Waste Electrical and Electronic (WEEE) Directive The WEEE Directive requires the recycling of waste electrical and electronic equipment. Whilst the WEEE Directive does not apply to some of Raymarine's products, we support its policy and ask you to be aware of how to dispose of this product. The crossed out wheelie bin symbol, illustrated above, and found on our products signifies that this product should not be disposed of in general waste or landfill.

EMC Installation Guidelines Raymarine equipment and accessories are designed to the best industry standards for use in the recreational marine environment. Their design and manufacture conforms to the appropriate Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) regulations, but correct installation is required to ensure that performance is not compromised. The guidelines given here describe the conditions for optimum EMC performance, but it is recognized that it may not be possible to meet all of these conditions in all situations. To ensure the best possible conditions for EMC performance within the constraints imposed by any location, always ensure the maximum separation possible between different items of electrical equipment. For optimum EMC performance, it is recommended that wherever possible: • Raymarine equipment and the cables connected to it are: • At least 3 ft (1 m) from any equipment transmitting or cables carrying radio signals e.g. VHF radios, cables and antennas. In the case of SSB radios, the distance should be increased to 7 ft (2 m). • More than 7 ft (2 m) from the path of a radar beam. A radar beam can normally be assumed to spread 20 degrees above and below the radiating element. • The product is supplied from a separate battery from that used for engine start. Power supply voltages below the minimum specified for a product, and starter motor transients, can cause the product to reset. This will not damage the product, but may cause the loss of some information and may change the operating mode. • Raymarine specified cables are used. Cutting and rejoining these cables can compromise EMC performance and must be avoided unless doing so is detailed in the installation manual.

Suppression Ferrites If a supplied cable is fitted with a suppression ferrite, the ferrite must not be removed, unless it is necessary to facilitate installation. Any ferrite thus removed must be replaced in the original position immediately installation is complete. If additional suppression ferrites are required, use only ferrites supplied by Raymarine. Connections to Other Equipment If Raymarine equipment is to be connected to other equipment using a cable not supplied by Raymarine, a Raymarine suppression ferrite MUST always be attached to the cable near the Raymarine unit.

Connecting Base Station The LifeTag system Base Station has to be connected to a 12 V dc power source and to the Alarm Buzzer: • Temporary connections are required to enable an initial site survey to be carried out. • Permanent connections are required when the system is fully installed. An ancillary switched output is also available from the Base Station. This provides a 12 V output when an alarm occurs. The connection procedures are described here once for you to refer to as necessary, whether you are making temporary connections for the site survey or making the permanent connections for full installation.

2

To connect your Base Station, ensure the power supply for the Base Station is switched off, then remove the Base Station cover. 1

Important

After you have made any connections to the Base Station, gently pull the wires, to ensure that the connections are secure.

Connect SeaTalk cable The SeaTalk cable provides power in and data connections for the Base Station. If SeaTalk is available use this to connect the Base Station to SeaTalk, as in Figure 6 . If SeaTalk is not available, use the SeaTalk cable to connect the Base Station to a 12 V dc power source, as in Figure 7 .

Ensure satisfactory LifeTag coverage The nominal LifeTag Base Station-to-Tag range is 30 feet (9 meters), so on boats where this separation is unlikely to be exceeded, the LifeTag system should operate satisfactorily with just one Base Station, provided it is positioned for optimum performance, as detailed in Figure 3 . However, system performance can be affected by obstructions (superstructure, decking, bulkheads etc) so it is strongly recommended you carry out a site survey to ensure satisfactory system operation, before permanently installing the LifeTag Base Station.

Site survey To carry out a site survey: 1. Referring to Figure 3 and Figure 4 , place the Base Station at the location you intend installing it and temporarily connect it either to SeaTalk as described in Figure 6 or to a separate 12 V dc supply via a 5 A fuse, as described in Figure 7 . 2. Temporarily connect the alarm buzzer to the Base Station, as described in Figure 8 . 3. Switch on the 12 V supply to the Base Station. 4. Take one of the Tags registered with the Base Station and ensure that the LED briefly flashes GREEN once every 10 seconds to indicate the Tag is active. If the Tag is not active, press and release the Tag push button to activate the Tag.

5. Take the Tag to every part of the vessel to which crew members have access, (i.e. every cabin, compartment and all extremes of the deck), to check if an alarm is initiated. If any alarms occur, the system is NOT operating satisfactorily. 6. Take the appropriate action as detailed below, for either System operating satisfactorily or System not operating satisfactorily, below.

System operating satisfactorily If no alarms are initiated during the site survey, the LifeTag system is operating satisfactorily with the Base Station at its current location. Switch off the power, then permanently install the Base Station at that location, as detailed under Fitting procedures, below.

System not operating satisfactorily If an alarm is initiated: 1. Hold down the Tag button for 5 seconds, to silence the alarm. 2. Release the Tag button, wait for 15 seconds then press it again for a further 5 seconds, to cancel the alarm. If alarms occurred during the site survey, reposition the Base Station, then carry out another site survey. If alarms continue to occur, you need to install a system with Master and Repeater Base Stations (see

Setting up a Master/Repeater Base Unit system). For such a system, you need to set up a second Base Station as a Repeater. The original Base Station is the Master.

Setting up a Master/Repeater Base Unit system Setting a Base Station as a Repeater To set a Base Station to operate as a Repeater: 1. Obtain a second LifeTag system. Temporarily place the Tags supplied with the second system, to one side 2. Place the Base Station from the second system and the original Base Station, so they are near to one another, with access to a common 12 V dc supply. 3. Remove the cover from the second Base Station as shown on page 3 , then locate the internal reset button and the LED indicator (see Figure 11 ).

Using a suitable implement, hold down the reset button on the second Base Unit, then switch on the power to the Base Units. 6. After approximately 5 seconds release the reset button at the second Base Unit and after a further 15 seconds, check that the LED indicator on this Base Station is flashing. If it is flashing, you have successfully set the second Base Station as a Repeater, with the original Base Station as the Master. 7. Immediately switch off power to the Repeater Base Station. Notes:

(1) If the indicator in the Repeater Base Station is not flashing, the procedure has not been suc-

cessful, so you need to repeat steps 4 to 6. (2) The indicator on the Master Base Station should be lit constantly, all the time power is applied.

significantly reduced in real MOB situations, where the Tag is submerged.

Note: You can cancel an alarm from any active Tag within range of the Base Station.

Tag registration & de-registration Registering a Tag Tags supplied with a Base Station as part of a LifeTag system are factory-registered with that Base Station, so you do not have to carry out a registration procedure with these. However, if you have obtained any Tags separately (e.g. if you have bought extra Tags), THEY WILL NOT WORK WITH YOUR BASE STATION until you have registered them with the Base Station.

Important You must complete the Tag registration procedure within one minute of switching on power to the Base Station. After the Base Station has been switched on for 1 minute, the alarm ‘chirps’ to indicate the end of the Tag registration period.

4. Wait for the alarm to ‘chirp’ 3 times, to indicate registration is complete. When the Tag is registered, the Tag indicator briefly flashes GREEN once every 10 seconds, to show the Tag is active (i.e. in normal operating mode). In this condition, the Tag will initiate an alarm condition in the appropriate circumstances.

De-registering a Tag If you want to de-register a Tag (for example, to use it with a different Base Station): 1. De-activate the Tag by switching off the associated Base Station then waiting for at least one minute. When the Tag is inactive, the indicator should not show any indication. 2. Hold down the Tag button, and check that: i. The GREEN indicator lights. ii. After 5 seconds, the RED indicator lights. iii. After a further 5 seconds, the RED indicator flashes. The Tag is now de-registered. 3. Release the Tag button. After a further few seconds, the Tag will automatically power down and the indicator will be unlit.
