The ClassB unit easyTRX2S-IGPS-N2K-WiFi receives AIS ClassA and ClassB signals and transmits own data according to ClassB standard. The received data telegrams are processed into a NMEA protocol which can be interpreted by chart plotters or PC software.
All devices of the easyTRX2S series are performing with a lot of usefull features:
By means of USB port connection to PC or Laptop is possible. With contained software it can be choosen between 38400 or 4800 Baud data rate. Function activity is shown by 8 LEDs. The easyTRX2S is able to interpret incomming AIS data for CPA alert or AIS S.A.R.T. ermergency messages. Additional the easyTRX2S devices can be used as power surce for external alerting devices. All received and transmitted AIS data can be stored with internal SD Card recorder. With the build-in multiplexer input 3 devices with different baud rate can be pluged to the easyTRX2S units. At least the external cable harness gives the possibility for outsourcing functionaly like "change into silent mode " or "PAN PAN emergency call" by switch.
The integrated GPS antenna is the new part of this AIS transceiver unit. This reduces the need of an external GPS antenna mounted on deck if the easyTRX2-iGPS-N2K-WiFi is going to be used in Polyester boats.
For stainless steel vessels this unit is not useful. Here you have to connect a separate GPS antenna to the unit.
The integrated NMEA2000 Adapter enables to connect this AIS transceiver into the latest NMEA2000 network standard aboard.
