This AIT2000 Transponder and GV30 AIS Antenna bundle from Digital Yacht is ideal for smaller boats and tenders. The single combination VHF + GPS Antenna solution makes installation easy and simple.
Digital Yacht's AIT2000 is an ultra-compact, Class B AIS Transponder that uses the latest AIS transponder technology. AIT2000 has thee outputs: NMEA 0183, NMEA 2000 and USB connection, enabling it to work with every AIS compatible chartplotter or software package available.
The Class B Transponder also features a remote silence button, two NMEA 0183 inputs and outputs, four status LEDs and rugged, vibration proof mounting brackets, making it the perfect AIS transponder for all light marine vessels up to 300 tons. As well as transmitting your own vessel's position, so other AIS equipped vessels know where you are, the AIT2000 will receive all AIS targets within range of your boat (typically up to 30 nautical miles) when connected to an existing VHF Antenna (via a splitter) or dedicated AIS antenna.
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.
Digital Yacht's GV30 is a combination antenna with both GPS and VHF twin coax feeds. The antenna is fitted with a standard 1" threaded base, so will mount on a variety of deck, pole and rail attachments. The 10-metre coax cables are terminated with a FME mini connector, which makes running the cable easy as the connector is barely bigger than the 5mm cable.
Despite its compact size (height - 190mm, diameter - 75mm), the antenna offers excellent performance as it's specifically tuned to 162MHz (AIS frequency).
