AIS stands for Automatic Identification System. AIS information includes the vessel name, call sign, vessel size, along with navigation data such as SOG and COG that can be displayed on your boat’s chartplotter. More and more boaters are now integrating AIS, using a black box, to their existing chartplotters.
Em-trak offers several options. The standard power B920 (2W CSTDMA) or high transmit power B950 (5W SOTDMA) AIS Class B transceivers, with integrated GPS receiver and antenna. Each transceiver is ruggedized, water and weatherproof (IPx6 and IPx7) and includes a bracket system for quick and secure installation. Integrated VHF antenna splitter and WiFi/Bluetooth options are also available.
