EM230 Midi The smallest of the Echomax Polyethylene models. Compact and highly efficient. QinetiQ (DERA) tests proved the Echomax EM230 Midi to give a peak response of 20 sq.m at + or- 3 degrees with four 90 Degree azimuth sectors, responding at 10 m2. Response of 75 % at 2.5 m2 and 100% response at 1.25 m2. An ideal reflector for sailing yachts, RIBs, motor cruisers and angling boats.
Meets RORC/ORC requirement of 10m2 peak, but fails ISO 8729 by 2 degrees per sector.
EchoMax Base Mount Model EM230MidiBM The EM230 Midi base mount was designed to fit on to any "A" frame or flat surface and does not need any mounting bracket. Features a single four bolt mounting point on the bottom the unit. The midi basemount has been chosen by the UK Inshore Rescue Services (RNLI) as best reflector for their fleet of 400 inshore RIBS. Sea trials in sea state fair recorded 100% paints at 3.8 miles and 80% paints at 5 miles plus although the unit was only mounted 2 meters above sea level (RORC/ORC recommend fitting 4m above sea level). The unit was also subjected to harsh sea conditions and a capsize test.
