NOTE: Two VHF antennas are needed for RS40-B, one for VHF and one for AIS. Alternatively an NSPL-500 can be used.
A dual-channel AIS receiver monitors the position of nearby AIS-equipped vessels, helping you to avoid collisions in crowded harbours and waterways.
For the first time a VHF Radio can automatically transmit AIS information. When moving, the RS40-B will send out a transmission every 30 seconds containing important information so that vessels around you know where you are, where you’re going and how fast you’re going. Information includes:
- Speed over Ground
- Course over ground
- Vessel Name
- Vessel Callsign
- Vessel dimensions
RS40-B also has a “silent mode” so if you are going fishing and don’t want everyone to know where you are you can turn off transmissions temporarily. You can then disable silent mode when you are coming back into an area with a lot of traffic.
GPS Built In
To meet both DSC and AIS regulations RS40-B gives the user the option of an internal GPS antenna, located in the face of the radio, or an external GPS antenna (GPS-500) which connects directly to the rear of the radio. It is not possible to get GPS information from a networked antenna (NMEA0183/2000). This is due to AIS regulations Note: RS40-B can be used as a GPS source for other products with both NMEA0183 and 2000
Add up to two optional wireless handsets to take your radio anywhere on board. The HS40 handset was designed as an intuitive portable companion to the RS40-B. Each handset duplicates your radio’s display and controls, enabling remote access to all key functions. Having multiple stations also allows the RS40-B to double as a handy on-board intercom.
