Product details

The new easyAIS3 AIS receiver by Weatherdock impresses with its small size and reliable reception. The device has a 2-channel receiver with which all AIS frequencies of commercial shipping (Class A) and recreational boating (Class B) can be permanently monitored and received.
To receive AIS data, a VHF antenna is required, mounted at the highest possible position. The easyAIS3 converts the received signals into an NMEA protocol and transmits them to a connected chart plotter. Received ship positions can be displayed in real time. The same can be achieved via USB connection to a PC or laptop with AIS capable software.
An antenna splitter, ideally the easySPLIT3, is required to use a VHF antenna for AIS and VHF radio communication simultaneously.

NOTE: The easyAIS3 can only be operated with a 5 V power supply. A USB cable can be used to supply 5 volts from a power bank or laptop. In addition, it is also possible to connect the power supply unit to the vehicle's electrical system.
