New Class A AIS transponder from Comar Systems
Comar Systems has unveiled its latest high performance AIS product, the Class A CSA-300 Transponder. With a compact single unit design, installation and configuration of the CSA-300 is straightforward. The system provides quick access to data and menus and will receive information from all vessels transmitting Class A or B AIS, base stations, aids to navigation, AIS SARTs, plus text and safety related messages.
The unit outputs AIS data in standard NMEA format so that information can be overlaid or shared with other devices on the bridge such as AIS compatible radar, PC navigation programs or chartplotters.
The CSA-300 is the first Class A transponder from Comar Systems.
âThis is a very exciting development for Comar,â said Comar Systems MD, Peter Cotton. âSince the introduction of Class B AIS systems, we have seen the light commercial market split between adopting Class A or Class B technology and now we have an affordably priced solution to offer for both sectors of the market and the top end of the leisure market.â
The system is Wheelmark and International Maritime Organisation (IMO) approved, meeting the requirements of large commercial vessels but is equally suitable for smaller commercial, fishing, super yacht and leisure craft.
The CSA-300 is available at a very competitive price, just ÂŁ1,875.00
