The PLT® Rescue 230 Basic contains all the necessary parts in order to meet the IMO SOLAS 74/96 regulation. There is no expiry-date which means it will stay on board for the life-time of your vessel. The R230 Projectile has installed 270 meters of line. The line has a breaking strength of 2000N (204kg).
If the air cylinder is filled up to 300 bars (4350 psi), it will supply the base unit with enough air to perform 6 max pressure launches. Charged to 200 bars (2900 psi), you will have 4 max pressure launches.
For filling to 300 bars (4350 psi), simply connect the air cylinder to a standard scuba diving (breathing air) compressor with standard 5/8″ threads according to DIN 477.
For filling from a 200-bar compressor, Art. No. 1308 Yoke (DIN477) and claw adapter Art.no 1315 is needed to connect the Air cylinder and compressor.
With a dry and clean line, the minimum launching distance is minimum 230 meters for the R 230 Projectile
