CSB200 is a low cost, high performance class B AIS transponder (Transmit and receive) unit, that enables the reception of AIS information as well as transmitting own vessel position and other information to other AIS equipped vessels.
The CSB200 installation is quick and simple, requiring only the connection to a 12v DC supply, VHF* and GPS* antenna.. Once connected to a computer running seaPro or other compatible viewer program you can display other AIS (class A or B) equipped vessel within VHF range. Information transmitted from vessels fitted with class 'A' AIS Transponders include name, call sign, position, heading, speed, destination, type and size of vessel.
Note: The CSB200 is compatible with any chart/ECDIS system capable of accepting standard NMEA 183 AIS sentences, such as seaPro standard or above.
