Complete Class B AIS Transponder
WatchMate Vision is a Class B AIS transponder with a two channel parallel receiver and transmitter. It transmits your vessel position and details and receives the same kind of information from other vessels with AIS transponders.
The AIS data is sent every few seconds and includes information such as course, speed, latitude, longitude, and heading. Static information about the vessel is sent every few minutes and includes the name, type of vessel, length, beam, draft, and similar.
Unlike normal AIS which send and receive AIS data, WatchMate Vision has smartAIS which is an active system with smart alarm logic that alerts you rapidly to potential dangers.
smartAIS includes these three powerful features:
- Safety Underway. This alerts you when smartAIS detects a potential collision.
- Safety at Anchor. If your anchor drags, smartAIS will let you know immediately.
- Safety for your Crew. If someone is washed overboard, smartAIS not only alerts you, it also provides their location so you can pick them up quickly.
It means you can focus on sailing your vessel, knowing smartAIS is always keeping watch in the background and is ready to alert you the moment it detects a hazard or unwanted event.
