“An easy to install Class B AIS transponder with universal NMEA 0183 interface. Built in GPS antenna and ideal for use on smaller yachts and boats like RIBs and center consoles.”The AIT1500 is a Class B AIS transponder with built in GPS antenna to make installation as easy as possible. The super sensitive design allows below deck mounting on GRP boats such as small yachts, RIBs and center consoles and cuts down on antenna clutter. Simply connect a VHF antenna (or use one of our AIS-VHF antenna splitters) and you’re equipped with Class B AIS.It uses a NMEA0183 interface for simple connection to 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 that 2W 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.Once installed, your AIS compatible plotter will show an overlay of targets and you’ll transmit your position every 30 seconds when underway to other AIS users. There’s also a USB interface for PC/MAC connectivity which can be used for programming the transponder with your boat details.The AIT1500 features a waterproof and tough enclosure with 4 LED indicators to show the status of the transponder.

  • Dual NMEA 0183 outputs at 4800/38400 baud
  • NMEA input multiplex function
  • Compatible with all AIS ready chart plotters
  • Internal GPS antenna for easy installation on fibreglass (GRP) hulled boats

  • Supplied with programming software for PC/Mac and SmarterTrack Lite for Windows

NOTE – AIS target range, like VHF range is dependent upon a number of installation factors such as; antenna gain, antenna height and size of ground plane. Ranges in excess of 20 miles should be possible if all of these factors are perfect.
