Operating in the VHF maritime band, the AIS system enables the wireless
exchange of navigation status between vessels and shore-side traffic monitoring
centers. Commercial ships, ocean-going vessels and recreational boats equipped
with AIS transceivers broadcast AIS messages that include the vessel’s name,
course, speed and current navigation status.
Raymarine’s AIS350 is a receive-only AIS device that allows you to receive
and display the AIS data transmissions from nearby vessels right on your
Raymarine multifunction display’s radar or chartplotter screen.
Raymarine’s new AIS350 Automatic Identification (AIS) receiver brings boaters
best-in-class features and performance in a package that’s 50% smaller than
previous generation AIS receivers. The new AIS350 is engineered for seamless
integration with Raymarine multifunction displays and offers multiple connection
options including SeaTalkng, NMEA2000,
NMEA0183 and USB. This unprecedented flexibility makes the AIS350 easy to
integrate with all of your onboard electronics including MFD’s, instruments, PC
based navigation systems and more.
The AIS350 features a dual-channel receiver system for fast acquisition and
tracking of both Class A and Class B AIS targets. The targets can be displayed
on any AIS compatible chartplotter or radar display including all Raymarine
A-Series, C-Series Widescreen, E-Series Widescreen and G-Series systems.
When used with Raymarine multifunction displays, the AIS350 supports
Raymarine’s exclusive Buddy Tracking feature, which allows you to save AIS
targets of interest with a special icon and “friendly” name. Buddy tracking
makes it easy to spot the boats of friends and family out on the water, or to
identify other vessels-of-interest with ease.
AIS350 is also an excellent choice for coastal ship-spotting enthusiasts,
harbormasters, and other users needing an easy-to-install, and highly reliable
AIS receiver for use with a PC-based navigation or vessel tracking system.
AIS350’s standard USB 2.0 (Universal Serial Bus) connection makes for 1-step
plug and play integration with laptop and desktop computers. AIS350’s dual
channel receiver architecture rapidly acquires both Class A and Class B targets
and continues to update them more rapidly than previous generation receive-only
units. This is particularly important when tracking fast-moving Class B vessels
like speedboats, small commercial powerboats, and small fast ferries.
The AIS350 AIS Receiver is the natural choice for owners of Raymarine
multifunction display products looking to increase their safety and situational
awareness with AIS technology. The AIS350 is engineered for simple installation
and seamless integration with Raymarine multifunction display systems. As an
integral part of any vessels multifunction navigation display system, the AIS350
is backed by the same superior service and support network as the multifunction
displays themselves. Owners can also have peace of mind with the AIS350’s
standard 2-year warranty.
The AIS350 comes with:
- Power/NMEA0183 Cable
- 1m SeaTalkng Spur Cable
- SeaTalkng Blanking Plug
- Document Pack
The AIS350 is an ultra-compact AIS receiver that is engineered for high
performance and seamless integration with your Raymarine navigation system.
- Dual channel receivers – AIS vessel monitoring of class A and B
- SeaTalkng networking for simple integration with Raymarine C-Series
Widescreen, E-Series Widescreen and G-Series systems.
- USB 2.0 port for plug-and-play connection to PC based navigation systems.
- Built-in NMEA multiplexer simplifies integration with legacy MFD display,
VHF radios and 3rd party devices.
- Front-facing multicolor LED indicator for system status and diagnostics.
- Rugged, water resistant enclosure designed for easy below deck
Both the AIS350 and AIS650 supports
Raymarine's exclusive Buddy Tracking feature when used with Raymarine
multifunction displays. This allows you to save AIS targets of interest with
a special icon and "friendly" name. Buddy tracking makes it easy to spot the
boats of friends and family out on the water, or to identify other
vessels-of-interest with ease.
The AIS650 also features both hardware and software enabled Silent Mode,
which enables the captain to switch off the AIS transmitter for reasons of
security or privacy. When connected to Raymarine Multifunction Displays,
silent mode can be enabled or disabled at-will from any display on the
network. This feature is most often employed by tournament captains who do
not want to reveal the position of their hot fishing spot, but is also vital
to cruising power and sailing vessels who may want to temporarily disable
broadcasting their position out of concern for vessel security.
