The AIT1500 is our entry level AIS Transponder featuring the same technology as our AIT2000 and AIT3000 transponders but with an internal GPS antenna that makes installation aboard smaller fibreglass (GRP) boats much quicker and easier.
This ultra-compact Class B Transponder has two outputs; NMEA 0183 and USB connection, allowing it to work with the majority of existing and legacy AIS compatible chart plotters or computer software packages on the market today. Featuring a remote silence button option, two NMEA 0183 Inputs and Outputs, integral USB cable, four status LEDs and a new rugged ABS plastic enclosure, the AIT1500 is the perfect small boat AIS transponder.
Configuration of your vessel's fixed data, such as MMSI, call sign, boat name, dimensions etc. is made easy with the included Windows and Mac compatible proAIS2 software*. Once configured, the unit will provide AIS data to a PC or Mac running suitable navigation software or a dedicated chart plotter, such as the latest Garmin, Raymarine, Navico, Standard Horizon and Furuno units.
As well as transmitting your own vessel's position so that other AIS equipped vessels know where you are, the AIT1500, when connected to an existing VHF antenna (via a splitter) or dedicated AIS antenna, will receive all AIS targets within range of your boat – typically up to 30NM
For optimum AIS performance on sailing yachts, we recommend our SPL2000 Splitter featuring "Zero Loss" technology which allows you to use your boat's existing VHF antenna at the top of the mast for maximum range.
