Transmit and Receive
The Seapilot Class B AIS units both transmit and receive AIS information. They can receive all AIS information available e.g. AIS Class A, AIS Class B, AIS AtoN, AIS SART, AIS weather information, etc.
The SEAPILOT AIS units can, with a simple push of a button, be made “silent”. This means that the unit will stop sending AIS data, but will still be able to receive AIS data from other AIS transponders.
Easy to Install
The AIS SEAPILOT units are very easy to install, just connect;
• 12-24 VDC
• VHF antenna
• Active 5VDC GPS antenna.
In order to be able to see other AIS sending vessels, connect your AIS units to:
• A plotter, radar and/or PC navigation software via NMEA0183, NMEA2000 and/or USB.
