Furuno Class B AIS TransponderFurunoFA50 This Class B AIS (Automatic Identification System) is capable of exchanging navigation and ship data between your ship and other ships or with coastal stations. The FA50 Includes: • Transponder unit with GPS antenna* • The transponder contains: • VHF transmitter •Two TDMA receivers on two parallel VHF channels •Interface •Communication processor •Internal GPS receiver: The internal GPS is a 12-channel all-in-view receiver with differential capability. It also gives position, COG and SOG.
*VHF antenna is also required and can be purchased separately Standard Features: •Fully satisfies the technical standards for Class-B AIS, IEC 62287-1 •Receives both Class-A and Class-B AIS information •Enhances safe navigation by exchanging critical navigation information from AIS-equipped vessels nearby •Greatly improves the level of the situational awareness even in fog, darkness or congested waterways •Outputs data to NavNet 3D, NavNet vx2 and PC through Ethernet •Flexible integration with various AIS compatible radar and chart plotters •Sturdy design mounts easily on a bulkhead •This unit complies with IMO MSC. 140(76) Annex 3, A.694, ITU-R M.1371-2 and DSC ITU-R M.825-3 •It also complies with IEC 60945 (EMC and environmental conditions).

What is AIS: The Automatic Identification System ( AIS ) improves the safety level of boating by exchanging information about the status of your ship with other AIS-equipped craft nearby. The system utilizes VHF broadcasts to handle information about the surrounding area, such as other craft and buoys and other aids-to-navigation. The AIS data includes target position, course and speed over ground, allowing you to foresee the course changes of particular targets. AIS targets are constantly visible even when they are shrouded in fog, in darkness, behind headlands, river bends or other obstructions. • Class A AIS is designed for Commercial and SOLAS Vessels •Class "A" transponders used on commercial ships and SOLAS vessels have many advanced features not needed by recreational users making them expensive
• Class B AIS is designed for use on non-SOLAS craft •The class "B" standard offers all the visibility and benefits of the class "A" without the complications.

Furuno FA30 Automatic Identification System (AIS) ReceiverFurunoFA30The Furuno FA30 Automatic Identification System (AIS) Receiver delivers real-time information about AIS-equipped vessels into your NavNet vx2 or AIS-ready chart plotter and/or radar. The information that the FA30 receives includes ship's position, course/speed over ground, heading and rate of turn as well as a variety of other useful information. Since AIS targets can constantly be tracked, even if they are not within line of sight, the FA30 enhances situational awareness in congested waterways. AIS targets on chart plotter/radar screens indicate the speed and course of the targets. The FA30 outputs AIS data to a PC via Ethernet network that can be read and displayed with the included software application. The FA30 can also be interfaced with various FURUNO radar and chart plotters with AIS information display capability. No additional interface units are required for interfacing with the NavNet vx2 series. The FA-30 accepts signals that any existing VHF antenna receives. It is easy to mount on the bulkhead thanks to the newly designed cabinet. Features: •Enhances safe navigation by receiving critical navigation information from local AIS-equipped vessels •Vastly improves situational awareness in any weather conditions including dense fog, darkness, and congested waterways •Dual parallel channel, “Full Duplex” receiver design receives AIS contact messages up to 100% more frequently than “Multiplexing” receivers •High sensitivity, synthesized receiver automatically switches between international and local AIS channels •Optional amplified VHF splitter allows the use of a single antenna for VHF radio and AIS Receiver •Network output to NavNet 3D/vx2 and PCs for added redundancy and installation flexibility •Serial Output for integration with various radar and chart plotter systems •AIS Viewer Software included for on-board PC or land based installations •Bulkhead mounting and low power, flexible DC input voltage design for simplified installations •Receives dual frequencies from 156.025MHz to 162.025MHz
