Digital Yacht’s self contained uAIS and ANT200 AIS receivers are now end of line but we’ve replacement solutions that offer improved performance and allow for a more flexible installation.
uAIS was a self contained AIS sensor with a USB wired connection but this was limited to 5m. In practice this often caused installation issues so we now offer a much neater solution utilising our AIS100USB with the QMax portable antenna (the same type used with our Nomad Class B portable AIS – details HERE).
The AIS100USB is self powered from the PC or MAC USB connection so there’s no need for a separate DC supply. The QMax antenna features a neat sucker cup type mount allowing easy temporary placement.
This also has the advantage that the system can be used with other VHF antennas if required allowing for maximum flexibility. A new part number for the bundle is available ZDIGAIS100QMA and this bundle is available immediately. The QMax antenna is also available as a stand alone product, part number ZDIGQMA
Potential users of the older ANT200 can now opt for a regular AIS100 (NMEA version) complete with the QMax antenna as a replacement system – order as a ZDIGAIS100 plus ZDIGQMA
