Wireless AIS Configuration App for Android

AISConfig Icon for blog

Our proAIS2 software for configuring and checking our latest generation of AIS transponders is a useful tool, but only being Windows and Mac compatible, it does have its limitations.

With this in mind, we have developed an Android App that allows you to do pretty much everything that proAIS2 does, but wirelessly from your Android Smart Phone or Tablet. AISConfig is a free app, available on the Google Play Store, that works with our AIT1500 (NMEA0183 version), AIT2000 and AIT3000.

Being wireless, you will need a WLN10HS or AIS WiFi Server if using our AIT1500 or AIT2000, but this is a popular combination, so there should be many customers out there that will benefit from this new App and of course our “top of the range” AIT3000 has WiFi built-in so AISConfig is the perfect app for it.

Using AISConfig you can do all of the initial configuration, including programming of the MMSI number and then once setup, you can use AISConfig to monitor the status of the transponder, repeat the LED status (useful if the transponder is behind a panel) and to turn OFF/ON the Silent Mode, avoiding the need for a physical switch.

If AISConfig proves popular, then we will certainly consider producing an Apple iOS version, but for now AISConfig is only available for Android.

New “How to” Video for proAIS2

proais2_video

Earlier this week, a customer asked us if we had a video that showed how to use our proAIS2 Configuration and Diagnostics Software that we supply with our latest Class B AIS Transponders. Rather embarrassingly we had to say that we did not, but we promised to create one and here it is.

Digital Yacht are not the only company that supply proAIS2 with transponders, but to our knowledge, we are the only company to produce a video showing how to configure and diagnose Class B transponders with it. So we hope that not only Digital Yacht users but owners of other brands will benefit from this video.

The video is hosted and can be found on YouTube, but you might prefer to watch this video and others,  on our Digital Yacht TV site…

Full User Manual now available for new transponders

Transponders 2015

With the recent release of our new AIT1500 and AIT3000 Class B Transponders, we now have three Class B Transponder models in our 2015 product range.

Traditionally, we supply our Class B transponders with a printed Quick Start Guide that provides basic information on installation and operation and for many people this is all the information they need. However, for dealers and customers that want to have more details of using, configuring, installing and fault finding our transponders we have now released a combined Full User Manual for the three units.
