Designed specifically to bring the benefits of Class B AIS to smaller vessels, it 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 itsown GPS positioning receiver which normally involves fitting an external antenna. TheAIT1500 incorporates a high sensitivity GPS antenna within its compact case whichsaves on antenna clutter and makes for a speedy installation. It's ideal for fitting onsmaller vessels and tenders. It uses a NMEA0183 interface for simple connectionto the vast majority of AIS compatible chart plotters and also has a separate 4800baud GPS data output for the DSC VHF if required. It consumes less that 2W powerand can operate on 12/24V systems. It also features a silence capability so the AIStransmissions 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 navigationsystem.

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 theWLN10.
