Furuno Class B Transponder FA-70
Description:Black Box Class B AIS Transponder
Features:The new FA70 AIS Transceiver provides multiple ports for simple connection to your NavNet, AIS-capable
Radar or Chart Plotter, or your favorite navigation software.
AIS is a critical enhancement in congested waterways, or
during periods of limited visibility or heavy seas. Information such as vessel name and call sign, position, course, and
speed are graphically presented, allowing you to monitor vessel traffic easily. Because it does not require line of sight to
function, you can see AIS-equipped vessels on your electronics before you can see them on the water.
The FA70 is a complete Class B+ (SOTDMA) AIS that transmits your vessel information at faster rates and
more powerfully than existing Class B units for added awareness. SOTDMA guarantees an AIS time slot
allocation, making you visible in congested waters. The FA70 even has its own internal Hi-Accuracy GPS
Receiver with WAAS differential (DGPS) capability, ensuring that you’re transmitting the highest precision
information. The standard built-in VHF Antenna Splitter allows it to share your VHF Radio’s antenna, making
installation simple. Note that the FA70 is a transmitting device and requires an AIS VHF Compatible Antenna
just like any Class B+, Class B, or Class A AIS system
The FA-70 offers accurate information exchange that can be utilized for collision avoidance
FURUNO’s FA-70 class-B AIS transponder receives navigation data from AIS-equipped vessels nearby that can be utilized to aid in safe navigation. Also, the FA-70 transmits own ship’s information to the vessels around, which also aids in collision avoidance.
