Icom AIS Receiver w/Real-Time Vessel Traffic Information
Advanced Collision Avoidance with Real-Time Vessel Traffic InformationDual channel receive capabilityThe MXA-5000 receives both Ch. 87B (161.975MHz) and Ch. 88B (162.025MHz) simultaneously. This dual channel receive makes the MXA-5000 more flexible for obtaining AIS information from AIS transponders that operate on only one channel. In addition, the MXA-5000 also receives both Class A and Class B AIS data.Dual mode data outputThe MXA-5000 has two data output. One is RS-422 for connection with equipment such as marine radar or GPS chart plotter. Those equipments which accept the VDM sentence format will show the AIS data on the display. The second is RS-232C for PC connection. When using with AIS plotter software*, the MXA-5000 allows you to monitor other vessel traffic on your PC.*Not supplied from Icom.Built-in antenna splitter to share one antennaThe MXA-5000 can be installed between a VHF antenna and a VHF radio. While receiving a VHF radio signal*, the MXA-5000 receives AIS data. When you transmit from the connected VHF radio, the Tx signal bypasses the MXA-5000 to protect the internal circuit.*Insertion loss : 3.5dB (approx.)GPS data multiplexWhen connected a GPS receiver to the MXA-5000, GPS position information such as RMC, GGA, GNS and GLL formats can be multiplexed with AIS data (VDM format) and simplifies wiring.Compact size and light weight bodyThe MXA-5000 is only 132(W)X34(H)X155(D)* mm and weighs only 400g* for easy and flexible installation.*Mounting bracket is not included.
