- The buoy needs float and tube (not included)
- The buoys information is received on board through Marine Instruments MIR-2200 or MIR 5000 system which is connected to the receiver or phone system of the vessel.
- The MSB-Longline software automatically manages the reception, showing the buoy positions on C-MAP charts.
- LED Flash for location.
- Reprogramming through the antenna.

Completing the range of products for the longline fishery, Marine Instruments has created the Intelligent Multiple Charger for M3P and M3P-T buoys.
As soon as the buoy is placed in the support, the charger detects its presence, verifies the battery level of the buoy and initiates the process of charge automatically.
- Simultaneous and independent charge of 4 M2P buoys batteries.
- Independent indicators of the battery status of each buoy.
- Anti-vibration system
- Maintenance of the battery level once the buoy is charged.
- Battery maintenance current to avoid battery discharge.
- Stainless steel support.
- LED to indicate operation.
