Designed specifically to bring the benefits of Class B AIS to smaller vessels!
The AIT1500 uses a high sensitivity internal GPS antenna to save on space and cut down on installation time.
Simply connect to power and a plotter, plug in a VHF antenna and you're in business.
The regulations for AIS demand that the Class B transponder has to incorporate its own GPS positioning receiver which normally involves fitting an external antenna. The AIT1500 incorporates a high sensitivity GPS antenna within its compact case which saves on antenna clutter and makes for a speedy installation.
It's ideal for fitting on smaller vessels and tenders.
It uses a NMEA 0183 interface for simple connectiont o the vast majority of AIS compatible chart plotters and also has a separate 4800 baud GPS data output for the DSC VHF if required. It consumes less thant 2W of power and can operate on 12/24V systems.
It also features a silence capability so the AIS transmissions can be muted while continuing to receive AIS traffic.
There is a USB interface for programming as well as for PC/MAC based navigation.It's compatible with Digital Yacht's NavLink MAC app and SmarterTrack PC navigation system.
GPS signals will pass through plastic, glass and GRP so it will be able to be mountedbelow decks on many boats. A dedicated VHF antenna is required for the AIS or asuitable VHF-AIS antenna splitter such as the SPL2000. It can also connect to the WLN10.
