“Connects to any NMEA AIS compatible chart plotter and adds an AIS overlay. Simple to install, highly sensitive dual channel design that’s easy to install with Garmin, Raymarine, Standard, Lowrance, Simrad, Furuno etc plotters.”
This value priced, entry level AIS receiver with NMEA 0183 is Digital Yacht’s most cost effective solution for adding AIS to your boat. It is designed to interconnect with just about any AIS compatible plotter via a simple two wire NMEA 0183 interface. It features the same dual channel receiver as the AIS100Pro, but without the USB interface and multiplexer. As a result, there is no compromise on performance and the AIS100 will out-perform all other, inferior, single channel receivers.
For use with existing AIS compatible chart plotters, such as the latest Garmin, Raymarine, Navico, Standard Horizon and Furuno units.
With the AIS100 installed your plotter will come to life with a display of local targets and drill down data on their identity, position and anti collision information. If you want to learn more about AIS, then read our white paper HERE
Typical AIS reception range is 20 – 30 nm for a mast top antenna.
