It’s design also incorporates the latest interfacing capability including NMEA 0183, NMEA 2000, USB and a WiFi server to allow tablets and iPads to connect. The NMEA interface allows connection to any AIS compatible chart plotter and USB is available for MAC or PC users as well as allowing programming of the unit with your boat details.
The AIT5000’s wireless interface transmits AIS, GPS and NMEA 0183 data to all the popular navigation apps and software. The wireless interface can connect up to 7 devices and supports both UDP and TCP/IP protocol. Moreover, if you want the wireless interface to also transmit your NMEA 2000 data from your NMEA 2000 backbone, please choose the option with iKonvert which is an NMEA 2000 to NMEA 0183 converter. iKonvert allows for new NMEA2000 equipment to talk to legacy NMEA0183 equipment. Conversions are bi-directional.
The AIS Life Guard is the world’s first Man Overboard AIS alarm designed to work with the AIS SARTs & MOBs. Operation is automatic. Simply connect the two wire NMEA input on the AIS Life Guard to the NMEA output of the AIT5000 and it will listen to all AIS traffic. Upon detecting an AIS SART or MOB transmission (message 1 and message 14), the AIS Life Guard will sound its internal 95dB alarm and display a red warning light.
