Shark Shield electronic shark repellent device released
A new personal product known as Shark Shield has been developed by SeaChange Technology. In March 2002 SeaChange Technology launched it´s first two Shark Shield products worldwide.
Shark Shield DIVE01 Specialised Dive Unit Suitable for scuba divers
Shark Shield GPSS01 General Purpose Unit Suitable for snorkelers, swimmers, surfers and scuba divers .
The Shark Shield has been developed by SeaChange Technology with the major assistance of Gerard Industries Pty Ltd, a South Australian based company with branches throughout the world. Gerard Industries produces the Clipsal brand of electrical products. Clipsal is the fourth largest household and commercial electronic equipment brand in the world.
The GPSS01 is an ideal unit for surfers snorkelers and swimmers. The unit is fitted to the lower leg with the supplied neoprene pouch. Attached to the pouch is an antenna which trails unobtrusively behind the user.
The GPSS01 is an excellent alternative to the specialized DIVE01 unit for scuba divers, who also surf or free dive. Barely noticeable in the water, the GPSS01 unit can be worn with or without a wetsuit, and is simple and easy to use and maintain.
If purchasing the unit for surfing, a leg rope must also be purchased. This leg rope attaches to the antenna and surfboard. The antenna actually becomes part of the leg rope.
The GPSS01 will suit surfers who want peace of mind for those times and places where sharks are known to be a potential threat.
The Shark Shield incorporates two electrodes, which project the field from the unit and thus create an invisible protective shield that surrounds the user. Both electrodes must be immersed in the water in order to give protection to the wearer.
