Digital Yacht has produced a top of the range AIS receiver that matches and exceeds the performances of the more expensive brands for a fraction of the price.
The AIS200N2NET boasts tri-output connectivity, the very latest AIS technology and offers unrivalled levels of reception and data connectivity. The N2NET suffix is Digital Yacht’s certified implementation of the NMEA 2000 data standard. It means easy plug ‘n play compatibility across electronic networks from a variety of manufacturers including Raymarine, Simrad, Lowrance, Garmin and Furuno – and indeed the AIS200N2NET is compatible with AIS ready plotters from all these brands. In addition to NMEA 2000, it has dual NMEA 0183 as well as a USB PC output connection.
With the multi output capability, the AIS200N2NET can provide AIS feeds to multiple equipment at the same time which is ideal for larger and more complex installations. Once connected to a VHF antenna (via a splitter) or dedicated AIS antenna AIS targets within a range of up to 30-50nm will be displayed. Interfacing and installation is simple and to top it all the AIS200N2NET supports all of the latest AIS message types including AIS SARTS, AtoNs and base stations. It is also compatible with PC, MAC OS X and LINUX kernels since V2.4.20.
