CALL US REGARDING AVAILABILITY OF THIS PRODUCT
This black box AIS transceiver allows mariners to receive AIS target data as well as transmit their own vessel information to other AIS receivers in their area. The AIS 600 aids in collision avoidance by helping users track and contact anyone in the area who has a VHF radio and MMSI number. Mariners can now rest easy knowing that they have visibility of boat traffic around them and that they can be seen by other vessels while at sea. The AIS 600 also employs ClearTrack™ technology – which ensures that there's no interruption of AIS traffic position while the VHF radio is in use. In addition, the AIS 600 integrates with a Garmin chartplotter and VHF radio via NMEA 2000 – giving you the ability to initiate a call to any MMSI target directly from the chartplotter by selecting the 'call with radio' function.
The AIS 600 is NMEA 2000 certified and is easily added to your existing marine network. Once installed, the AIS 600 is controlled via chartplotter display. You'll have all the information you need right at your fingertips to make decisions with confidence. In addition, the AIS 600 comes with a built-in Active splitter that allows one VHF antenna to serve both the AIS 600 and any VHF radio with minimal signal loss.
