LOWRANCE has announced a fully integrated, Class-B Automatic Identification System (AIS) transponder – the NAIS 500.
Important for navigating busy waterways and congested ports, the NAIS 500, which includes a dedicated GPS-500 receiver, is compact in size, lightweight and fully waterproof.
It offers low power draw and features multiple connections for networking with any HDS Carbon and HDS Gen3 series multifunction display.
Meeting the strict regulations set for Class-B AIS transponders, the NAIS 500 ensures that a vessel is seen on a display – reducing the risk of collisions. The transponder sends a signal to other vessels in the area allowing boaters to plan any necessary avoidance maneuvers well in advance.
Compatible with NMEA 2000, NMEA 0183, NMEA 0183 multiplexing and USB, the NAIS 500 is simple to install in any configuration and meets IPX7 standards.
