    259097 SI-TEX SI-TEX Metadata VHF / AIS Antenna Splitter MDA-3

    The SI-TEX Antenna Splitter is an Intelligent device that allows both a VHF Radio and any AIS device connected to receive signals simultaneously.

    Features:

    • Provides signal gain, improving AIS reception and range
    • Allows the use of the primary ships VHF antenna for both VHF radio and the AIS transceiver - eliminates the need for 2nd antenna
    • When either the AIS transceiver or VHF radio transmits, the AIS antenna splitter automatically senses the transmission and routes the signal to the antenna
    • Fail-safe mode that allows the VHF radio to operate normally in case of a power failure
    • Low power consumption
    • Works with both 12/24 volts
    • Quality construction made specifically for marine use
    • Includes LED indicators to provide information regarding the status of the AIS antenna splitter
        • Power - Indicator is illuminated while the unit is powered
        • TX AIS - Indicator flashes to indicate AIS transmissions
        • TX VHF - Indicator flashes to indicate VHF radio transmissions
