Raymarine announces the launch of its new AIS950 Automatic Identification System (AIS) transceiver. This powerful new AIS device brings a new level of professional-grade features and performance to Raymarine’s line of AIS products.
The AIS950 is a Class A Transceiver certified for installation on both SOLAS and sub SOLAS class vessels. A commercial grade product, the AIS950 is equally at home on workboats, law-enforcement craft, and on private yachts desiring an AIS device with professional grade features.
The AIS950 has a convenient ‘one-box’ design containing the complete AIS transceiver system and LCD display. Simple menu and soft key controls allow full access to all AIS features and functions. The high-contrast LCD display provides clear presentation of AIS target data and is LED backlit for night time operation. AIS950 also features an integrated alarm buzzer to keep you alerted to vital information.
The AIS950 is equipped with a state-of-the-art radio transceiver system for unrivaled performance and reliability. A single AIS transmitter and three AIS receivers ensures maximum target reception even in congested waterways. The AIS950 is also equipped with a GPS receiver for time synchronization as required by Class A regulations. All of this is built into a compact, rugged enclosure, built to withstand the extreme environment of commercial maritime service.
The AIS950 features 7 serial data ports (4 bidirectional) for connecting to Raymarine and 3rd party navigation systems as well as other shipboard peripherals, like DGPS receivers, gyrocompasses, and ECDIS systems. For commercial-ship applications, the AIS950 features a front-mounted pilot-plug connection. A dedicated PC serial data connection point is provided for programming, diagnostics or external display connection.
With the release of the AIS950, Raymarine now has a complete and comprehensive line of AIS products with solutions for vessels of every size and type. The AIS950 joins the recently released AIS650 Class B transceiver and AIS350 receive- only AIS in bringing this important navigation safety technology to recreational and professional mariners alike.
