AISnet+ is a new enhanced version of our popular AISnet AIS base station receiver. Both models will continue to be available but AISnet+ features some new, unique interfacing capabilities.
Both devices are fitted with a network/RJ45 interface. They are designed for installation on shore side facilities such as ports, marinas or platforms for connection to the internet via a suitable router. Local AIS traffic decoded by the AISnet receiver can then be sent to AIS internet providers such as Marine Traffic and AISLive.
The new AISnet+ device brings new connectivity options with a sophisticated internal router allowing for Open VPN connections and wireless connectivity as well as via a LAN cable. Like the AISnet receiver, it has also has a USB interface for a local PC or MAC. Open VPN allows for secure AISnet to server communications for high reliability and security – its ideal for military applications.
AISnet+uses the very latest generation, high sensitivity dual channel AIS receiver for the best possible receiver performance. Both Class A and Class B transmissions are fully decoded including ATONs, SARTs and other specialist AIS signals. Indicator lights are now built in showing receiver and network status.
AISnet+ ships with a 110/220V AC adaptor (with universal plug adaptors for global markets) and a simple to use configuration application/CD for both PC and MAC. It can also be powered from 12V DC. It is available now priced at £1000 plus VAT where applicable ($1600/EUR1400)
