Class B AIS Transponder on the Horizon from Digital Yacht
2 April 2011
Digital Deep Sea, the UK based manufacturer of marine navigation and communication products has launched a new Class B AIS transponder designed specifically for the work boat and small commercial market. It joins their wheelmarked and type approved Class A product and is ideal for users who are not mandated to carry a Class A product, but yet want AIS functionality aboard their vessel.
This CLB1000 is designed to inter-connect with existing chart plotters or radars to present an AIS overlay of targets. It comes complete with a combination VHF/GPS antenna which means that just a single coax feed is required from the antenna to the transponder, greatly simplifying installation especially in retrofit situations where access to cable runs may be difficult.
The CLB1000 not only receives AIS data from other vessels equipped with AIS, but also transmits the vessels position to other AIS users in 30 second time slots as defined by the Class B standard. It features a regular NMEA port for connection to chart plotters as well as a USB connection for a PC or MAC, for PC based navigation systems as well as programming.
The CLB1000 is priced at £600 + VAT including the antenna. For further details visit us at stand Q19 at Seawork from June 14 – 16 or go to www.digitaldeepsea.com or call +44 (0)117 955 4474.
