Class B AIS Transponder with
Wide Viewing-Angle Color TFT LCD
Receiving both Class A and B AIS Signals
Benefits of AIS (Automatic Identification System)
An 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.
The wide viewing, high resolution 4.3-inch color TFT display clearly shows your and other vessels’ positions. Potentially dangerous vessels are shown in red and ships registered as your friends are shown in yellow. The day-mode display is readable in direct sunlight, and the night-mode display ensures good readability in the dark for further convenience.
The ‘Target’ list screen shows all detected AIS equipped vessels and targets. The ‘Danger’ list screen shows a list of vessels that are within six nautical miles of Closest Point of Approach (CPA) and sixty minutes of Time to Closest Point of Approach (TCPA) from your vessel. The ‘Friend’ list screen displays the detected AIS targets that you set as friends. When you want to see target details, select the target by the cursor keys and push [ENT] key.
Individual DSC Call
You can transmit an individual DSC Call by simply selecting an AIS target and the voice channel on the MA-510TR*.
