MA-510TR Class B AIS Transponder
AIS Transponder on your boat automatically receives information broadcast by other AIS-equipped vessel’s and base stations, all while your own vessel’s static and dynamic information is being transmitted. Using with an AIS transponder, you can find AIS mounted small boats and buoys that are difficult to be detected with a marine radar. The MA-510TR can receive both Class A and B AIS signals and increases your safety at sea
NMEA 2000™ & NMEA 0183 Connectivity
With the plug-and-play functionality of NMEA 2000™, the MA-510TR can connect to a NMEA 2000™ network (an external plotter, marine radar and VHF radio). Using NMEA 0183/-HS connectivity, the transponder can connect to a transceiver, plotter device, marine radar or GPS receiver.
Individual DSC Call
You can transmit an individual DSC Call by simply selecting an AIS target and the voice channel on the MA-510TR Class B AIS Transponder *. * A compatible Icom VHF radio is required. The MA-510TR and a radio can be connected with the accessory cable. See the instruction manual of each for radio’s connecting instructions.
Silent Mode for Security and Privacy
Silent mode switches off the AIS transmitter and allows you to temporarily stop transmitting your vessel’s position information. This function is useful when you do not want to reveal your fishing spots to other vessels. You can receive other vessel’s AIS reports also while the silent mode is ON.
Supplied GPS Antenna
The GPS receiver with SBAS function is integrated in the MA-510TR. Position information can be simply received with a connection to the supplied GPS antenna with 10 m, 32.8 ft cable.
AIS data can be output from an USB cable connector on the rear panel*. * A third party application and a connection cable are required.
