Instead of ENOS Beacon it is possible to place a flashlight in the pouch (up to 160 grams / 5.64 oz / 0.35 lbs) on the top! Thanks to the height the flash is much better to see. Of course, the flash also can be used during the decompression stop.
To avoid loss of Enos Beacon (or the flash) a spiral wire is attached to SIBO.1 to fix the signal devices.
SIBO.1 is 1.85 meters long (6.07 ft) which is the reason why it is also very good visible at high waves. In spite of its measurements it has a steady bearing even in waves because of its robust material and solid manufacturing.
Additionally a big SOLAS reflector is placed on each side of the top to reflect sun light and searching spots.
Bi-coloured – for your safety
Due to safety reasons SIBO.1 is bi-colored, one is YELLOW, the other is ORANGE.
This ensures an optimal signal effect in all lights and visibility conditions:
+ YELLOW is very good to see at cloudy sky, dawn and poor light,
+ ORANGE is better to see at dazzling, glaring sun, flashy light and strong sun reflections on the surface.
⇒ "YELLOW and ORANGE"
SIBO.1 is delivered in a pocket with carabiner for a convenience attachment to the diving equipment. Here, the ENOS Beacon (or the flash) also fit in it. Thus the Beacon or the flash can be attached to SIBO.1 prior the dive.
The pocket is separate and can be removed from the SMB.
