The FA30 Automatic Identification System
(AIS) Receiver delivers real-time information about AIS-equipped vessels into
your NavNet vx2 or AIS-ready chart plotter and/or radar. The information that
the FA30 receives includes ship's position, course/speed over ground, heading
and rate of turn as well as a variety of other useful information. Since AIS
targets can constantly be tracked, even if they are not within line of sight,
the FA30 enhances situational awareness in congested waterways.
AIS targets on chart plotter/radar screens indicate the speed and course of
the targets. The FA30 outputs AIS data to a PC via Ethernet network that can be
read and displayed with the included software application. The FA30 can also be
interfaced with various FURUNO radar and chart plotters with AIS information
display capability. No additional interface units are required for interfacing
with the NavNet vx2 series.
The FA-30 accepts signals that any existing VHF antenna receives. It is easy
to mount on the bulkhead thanks to the newly designed cabinet.
