Affordable 5W Class B AIS Transceiver
The Si-Tex MDA-5H is the perfect addition to your boat to keep you aware of your surroundings while out on the open water. A fully certified 5W AIS transceiver allows communications to reach further while the included SOTDMA Class A Priorities ensures your vessel will always transmit and be seen in congested areas where normal Class B transceivers wouldn’t normally have priority.
Built as one of the most sophisticated AIS devices on the market, this easy to install system includes a NMEA 0183 data port and is also NMEA 2000 network compatible so connectivity to your boats current NMEA network is a breeze. A 72-channel GPS and GLONASS receiver is built into every MDA5 and Si-Tex also packages these with an external antenna for commercial vessels to ensure your position is accurate. The Automatic VDR (Voyage Data Recorder) is a standard function in every MDA 5H and will automatically save your past 30 days of voyage data.
An IPX7 waterproof rating, ultra-power efficient, IEC-62287-2, FCC, USCG certified and Industry Canada approved, the MDA-5H AIS system is a must have for the best situational awareness while on the water.
