ELGR 162/ETH AIS RECEIVER
SETUP GUIDE
This MarineTraffic-provided AIS Receiving unit is a two-channel AIS Receiver
(162.025/161.975 MHz) equipped with both Ethernet and Serial Outputs.
The network interface of the receiver (Ethernet) is a WIZnet Serial-to-Ethernet module
(WIZ107SR). A configuration tool for the WIZnet module can be found here:

INSTALLATION
The AIS receiver must be connected to:
1.
An external aerial antenna suitable for receiving frequencies within the
marine VHF band (156Mhz to 162.025Mhz).
For better reception use a high-gain antenna especially designed for AIS
frequencies. The cable of the aerial must be kept at the minimum
possible length and connected to the receiver with a BNC connector.
2.
Your local area network.
Any available Ethernet port (RJ-45) on your router or switch or hub is
suitable for use. Use a Cat-5 or Cat-6 Ethernet cable with RJ-45
connectors at both ends (not provided).
3.
A power supply.
Depending on the model of the receiver, it can be connected either
directly to the main AC power or to an external DC power supply of 12
to 25V, 0.3A. Any stabilized 12V power adaptor is suitable for use. The
adaptor is not included in the package. Pay attention to the correct
polarity of the cable (+ red, - black).
Refer to the following connection diagram. Please note that the PC is only needed for
configuring the receiver and it is not necessary for normal operation of the receiver.

DEFAULT SETTINGS
In case your network supports the DHCP protocol (Automatic IP address assignment)
which is the usual case, the receiver will be plug-and-play. The receiver is initially
configured to be automatically assigned with an IP address and to send the collected
data directly to the MarineTraffic servers.
CHANGING CONFIGURATION
In case it is necessary to change the network configuration of the receiver, please
take the following steps:
1.
Connect the AIS receiver and a PC in the same Local Area Network. In
some cases, it will be necessary to directly connect the receiver and
the PC using a single Crossover Ethernet cable between them.
Download the Configuration Tool:
http://www.marinetraffic.com/files/WIZ107_108SR_ConfigTool_v1_4_1.zip
and run the Setup.msi file to install it. Open the program
(Start » All Programs » WIZnet » WIZ107_108SR » Config Tool).
2.
Click on the Search button. The device will be discovered and its
MAC address will appear at the Serial to Ethernet list as shown
on the screenshot below:

1.
Device network settings:
Select Using the follow IP Address to assign a static IP address or DHCP to
use the automatic IP assignment if your network supports it. In case Using
the follow IP Address option is selected, make sure that you have correctly
filled the Device IP address, Subnet mask and Gateway values. All values
are required and they must match the settings of your local network.
2.
Operation Mode for the device:
Normally, this is TCP Client. This means that the receiver Pushes the
collected data using the TCP/IP protocol. You may check the UDP in
case you are experiencing problems or interruptions.
3.
Remote IP/Host name:
This is the IP address and port number of the MarineTraffic’s server,
ready to accept incoming data. Use the IP address 5.9.207.224 . Port
number is preconfigured or it is given to you when you are registering
your station as mentioned above. You may use the default port 5321
for testing purposes.
SERIAL TAB
The values are preconfigured as shown below and, normally, you will not have
