Automatic Identification Systems (AIS)
AIS is probably one of the most important pieces of Electronic equipment that can be fitted to any vessel that takes to the water.
If an AIS Transponder is fitted then paired up to a suitable Chart Plotter you can literally see other vessels in relation to you (providing they are transmitting AIS information) and if they have receiving equipment they can see you too.
Transponders are the best way to go as they both send and receive information. Pleasure vessels only require class B units. a full demonstration can be carried out on our Sailing yacht.
visit the AIS page to watch a great video explaining more about AIS.
Navigation is key in most things, but then there is marine navigation and the new equipment that is networked can really make the journey a pleasure. After all that's why we are out on the water. With the up to date modern equipment available it has become so easy especially in the touch screen generation.
Having all the information right in front of you can also mean less time below at a chart table and more time actually seeing what is around you. Of course it is still important to know how to use paper charts. with a chart plotter at the helm you will have a wealth of information right in front of you in real time. and coupled with RADAR, AIS and the traditional wind, speed and depth you will always know where your are as well as the direction you need to head to.
Add an Auto Helm to the mix and welcome to touch screen helming with amazing accuracy.
They always say Communication is important. Well we tend to agree and on a boat having good communication is even more so. We don't just look at the VHF side either, there is the communication of devices along a network then Loud Hailers, Horns, Personal Comms, even the AIS comes into it too.
Whatever your communication requirements are, we can come up with a solution. having the right VHF is important on a boat and new ones work along with all the other devices onboard. With DSC on the VHF network if a distress call comes through, the DSC information is relayed straight to a Chart Plotter. This allows you to see if you can assist in anyway. This is just one small example of how a networked communication system can be a real benefit.
This is just a small example
The AIS, Navigation and Communications is just a small part of what we can do. There is of course the general Electrics including lighting, Power, Charging equipment like Wind Generators and Solar equipment. Batteries, Winches and Windlasses too. Lets also not forget that we are out to enjoy the water and for that there is some amazing Entertainment equipment we can fit on board.
