The MTU AIS-C transponder is a compact AIS AtoN device, providing automatic information on the GPS position of the marine aid to navigation (AtoN); thus making easy the location and identification of buoys, beacons and lighthouses on a vessel or an AIS Base Station chart.
A triple environmental protection housing compactly holds this device and the GPS antenna inside. The transponder is able to send status signals and alarms signals coming from any kind of beacon, either rotating or flashing one, without need to install any additional sensors.
Additionally, the MTU AIS-C can transmit meteorological and oceanographic data, such as current, wave height, tides, and wind direction and intensity; all this with a minimum energy consumption.
The MTU AIS-C complies with IMO, IEC, ITU and IALA Standards.
