The CAMINO-108W is AMEC´s second generation Class B AIS wireless transponder allowing you to broadcast your data to other AIS-equipped vessels and receive their data by viewing on a dedicated chart plotter or PC – the essential way to improve collision avoidance on the water. This model also supports output to devices such as iPads via Wi-Fi.

This new release adds a number of features for customers wanting to use the Wi-Fi functionality. You can now connect and stream data to as many as ten wireless devices from the CAMINO-108W. The CAMINO-108W can be configured to be in Access Point mode or Client mode. In Access Point mode, devices connect to the SSID network broadcast by the CAMINO-108W. In Client mode, the CAMINO-108W can join an existing Wi-Fi network on your boat. When in Access Point mode, the unit can be configured with your own IP address, port number, SSID and network password.

CAMINO-108W is designed to deliver a high-performance AIS transponder solution. The optimized receive and transmit capability is now brought into a compact and robust housing which is less than half the size of its previous generation.

The dual-channel receivers enable AIS vessel monitoring of all AIS signals including Class A, Class B, AtoN, SART. Its NMEA2000, NMEA0183 and waterproof USB* port ensure simple integration with chart plotters and PCs. The built-in SD card slot makes data logging of AIS data easier than ever.

Note, we now ship the CAMINO-108W with a portable GPS antenna. If you need an external GPS antenna or a combo AIS/GPS antenna, see our selection at the bottom of the page.
