The MA-500TR is a class B AIS transponder that offers modern navigation safety while matching the clean look of Icom's award-winning VHF and SSB radios. Give your helm a handsome, harmonious look for fraction of the price. The MA-500TR automatically shares your vessel information with other AIS transponders. If you want to contact another vessel, you no longer need to locate and punch in its 9-digit MMSI number - the MA-500TR does it automatically. AIS information is displayed on the MA-500TR's own modest (yet clear and bold) screen or, for those who want a larger screen, in an NMEA-standard data stream for use by third-party chartplotters or other onboard nav gear. When you want the best, get the best. Get Icom. Simply the best.
The MA-500TR is a Class B AIS transponder for Non-SOLAS vessels such as pleasure craft, work-boat and small vessels. Your vessels information will automatically be transmitted at fixed intervals or under base station control. The MA-500TR receives dual AIS channels (Ch. 87B and Ch. 88B) simultaneously and receives both Class A and Class B AIS information. Transmitted information by MA-500TR is:

AIS Life Guard
The AIS Life Guard is the world's first AIS Man Overboard Alarm designed to work with the new generation of AIS SARTs that have recently been approved for global use by the IMO.
Many existing AIS compatible chart plotters do not fully support AIS SARTs but with the AIS Life Guard connected to an AIS transponder or AIS receiver, you can have a complete working AIS SART man overboard system. Operation is automatic, simply connect the two wire NMEA input on the AIS Life Guard to the NMEA output of your AIS and it will listen to all AIS traffic.
As soon as an AIS SART transmission is detected the AIS Life Guard will sound its internal 95dB alarm and display a red warning light. For larger installations, it can also be connected to an external alarm (not supplied) so that the whole boat is immediately alerted.
The AIS Life Guard detects both message 1 and message 14, the two AIS messages reserved for AIS SARTs and will also give a short three beep alarm if it detects an AIS SART test message, great for checking correct operation of your AIS SARTs prior to a voyage.
All Digital Yacht AIS receivers and transponders are compatible with the AIS Life Guard and it is designed to operate on 12v or 24v DC systems.
This value priced, entry level AIS receiver is Digital Yacht's most cost effective solution for adding AIS to your boat. Featuring the same dual channel receiver as the AIS200 range, but without the multiplexer, there is no compromise on performance and the AIS100 will outperform all other, inferior, single channel receivers.
For use with existing AIS compatible chart plotters, such as the latest Garmin, Raymarine, Navico, Standard Horizon and Furuno units. Connected to an existing VHF antenna (via a splitter) or to a dedicated AIS antenna, you can receive all AIS targets within 20 miles of your boat.
AIS100 Receiver (USB)
This value priced, entry level AIS receiver is Digital Yacht's most cost effective solution for adding AIS to your PC. Featuring the same dual channel receiver as the AIS200 Pro, but without the NMEA 0183 output and multiplexer, there is no compromise on performance and the AIS100 will out perform all other, inferior, single channel receivers.
For use with any AIS compatible PC navigation software, such as the latest SmarterTrack, MaxSea, Nobeltec, SeaPro and RosePoint applications. Connected to an existing VHF antenna (via a splitter) or to a dedicated AIS antenna, you can receive all AIS targets within 20 miles of your boat.
