Digital Yacht's AIT1500 is an entry level AIS Transponder that features the same technology as the Digital Yacht AIT2000 and Digital Yacht AIT3000 transponders, but contains an internal GPS antenna that makes installation aboard smaller fibreglass (GRP) boats much quicker and easier.
The ultra-compact Class B Transponder has two outputs; NMEA 0183 and USB connection, allowing it to work with the majority of existing and legacy AIS compatible chartplotters or computer software packages on the market today. With a remote silence button option, two NMEA 0183 Inputs and Outputs, integral USB cable, four status LEDs and a new rugged ABS plastic enclosure, the AIT1500 is the perfect AIS transponder for small boats.
Thanks to the included proAIS2 software, configuration of your vessel's fixed data, such as MMSI, call sign, boat name and dimensions is easy. Once configured, AIT2000 will provide AIS data to a PC or Mac running suitable navigation software or a dedicated chartplotter, such as the latest Garmin, Navico, Standard Horizon or Furuno units. For a permanent USB connection to a PC or MAC, Digital Yacht recommend adding a NMEA to USB Adaptor cables, which will provide an extra level of electrical isolation/protection against ground differences and static discharge.
Furthermore, for optimum AIS performance on sailing yachts, Digital Yacht also recommend the SPL2000 Splitter. This splitter features Zero Loss technology, which allows you to use your boat's existing VHF antenna at the top of the mast for maximum range.
Built-in high performance 50 channel GPS receiver (ideal also as a backup GPS).
Easy to install black box solution.
High speed NMEA output (38,400 baud) – compatible with industry standard chartplotters.
Low Speed NMEA output (4,800 baud) - for providing GPS data to DSC VHF radio.
Low Speed NMEA Input (4,800 baud) - for multiplexing additional NMEA0183 data.
Internal GPS antenna for easy installation on fibreglass (GRP) hulled boats.
Remote Silence Switch option.
Requires VHF antenna or dedicated AIS antenna (available as optional accessory) or splitter (SPL2000).
Shares the same latest generation AIS technology as our AIT2000 and AIT3000 units.
Supplied with programming software for user programming.
USB Interface for simple plug and play connection to a PC or Mac.
AIS target range, like VHF range is dependent upon a number of installation factors such as; antenna gain, antenna height and size of ground plane. Ranges in excess of 20 miles should be possible if all of these factors are perfect.
