    261721 SI-TEX SI-TEX Metadata Class B/SO AIS Transceiver with External GPS Antenna Package MDA-5

    This powerful Class B/SO* AIS transceiver will make your boat "visible" to other vessels with AIS over long disances and in challenging conditions with its 5-watt transmission power. The SI-TEX Metadata MDA-5 module transmits at more than twice the power of traditional Class B AIS transceivers to put you on more screens for increased safety.

    Features:

    • World's most sophisticated, fully certified 5-Watt SOTDMA Class B AIS Module on the market
    • Transmits position and other dynamic data such as Speed Over Ground, Course Over Ground and Heading on a more frequent, "Class A-Type" priority basis
      • Provides surrounding vessels with more accurate position information
      • Especially important for boats traveling at high speeds and/or in congested areas
    • Higher output power means your vessel will be seen at longer ranges by other vessels and via AIS websites
    • *SOTDMA Class A Priority means your vessel will always transmit and be seen in congested harbors where traditional Class B units don't have network priority
    • Transmitter can be silenced (see definition below)
    • Automatic VDR Function (Voyage Data Recorder)
    • Integrated zero loss VHF antenna splitter - no second antenna needed
    • Built-In 802.11 b/g/n Long Range WIFI allows unit to send AIS and Position data to any WIFI connected devices
    • NMEA-0183 data port, NMEA-2000 & USB intelligent connectivity to all bridge systems
    • Built-In GPS & GLONASS satellite navigation receiver
    • Waterproof certified to IPX7
    • Dual receivers decode all DSC & AIS messages, including MOB & SART
    • Ultra-power efficient
    • IEC-62287-2, FCC and USCG certified
    • 2-Year warranty package

    *SOTDMA stands for Self-Organized Time-Division Multiple Access and means as AIS info comes into the receiver, it organizes the data into time slots that are time-shared with a TDMA receiver. It transmits at 5W at high power, twice the power of traditional Class B AIS Transceivers — so your boat can be "seen" over long distances and in the most challenging conditions.
