WHAT RANGE WILL I GET FROM NOMAD?
AIS uses VHF transmissions so range is limited to line of sight. With the
compact antenna you should be able to transmit up to 5NM and receive
data from other vessels at 10-12NM. Shore stations would typically pick
you up at 25NM. Connected to a mast top antenna will give standard
Class B ranges of up to 20NM as the power output (2W) is the same as all
other Class B AIS
CAN I CONNECT A DIFFERENT VHF ANTENNA?
Yes you can. You may need a SO239 to BNC adaptor as Nomad uses a
BNC antenna connector. For best performance use an AIS tuned antenna
but a normal VHF antenna will function
WHAT HAPPENS IF I DON’T HAVE A MMSI NUMBER
OR HAVEN’T PROGRAMMED THE UNIT?
If the unit is unprogrammed, it will act as a receiver only outputting GPS and
AIS data via WiFi and USB
HOW DO I VIEW AIS DATA?
Nomad has a USB interface (for power and data) that can connect to a
PC or MAC. Any AIS compatible navigation software can be used and the
PC will create a virtual com port. Digital Yacht offer free SmarterTrack Lite
viewing software as well as premium SmarterTrack software for use with
Navionics charts for detailed charting and navigation. It’s also compatible
with popular programs like MaxSea, Nobeltec, Expedition, SeaPro and
Open CPN. Most modern programs accept a TCP/IP or UDP feed via the
wireless link, but do double check before purchasing.
Apps on iPads, tablets and smartphones will use the wireless link to
connect to Nomad. Check www.digitalyacht.net for iOS and Android apps
as there are a huge number of popular charting and navigation programs
HOW DO I MOUNT NOMAD?
Most users will use a 3rd party mount like a mobile phone holder, RokLok,
RailBlaza or RAM mount. The fixing holes also allow for a cable tie to be

SPL2000 VHF-AIS ANTENNA SPLITTER
Typical system
“Patented zero loss technology lets you share your main
VHF antenna with both the VHF and AIS. Compatible with
transponders and receivers”
KEY FEATURES
An AIS receiver or transponder requires a VHF antenna, but Digital Yacht’s
new SPL2000 AIS-VHF antenna splitter allows an existing antenna to be
used for both the AIS and VHF (DSC) and even with an AM/FM radio.
Unlike most simple splitters, it can also be used with a class B transponder system and it incorporates special circuitry to ensure safe operation of
the two transmitting devices.
The unit has four simple connections - one input for the main VHF antenna and then outputs for the AIS receiver/transponder, DSC VHF as well
as an optional car radio output. It utilises Digital Yacht’s new, patented,
ZeroLossTM technology, to ensure the very best possible reception and
transmission from all devices. Most importantly it is also fail safe, so
should the unit ever stop working or lose power, it will not affect the main
VHF operation.
Until now, Digital Yacht, have recommended a dedicated antenna for a
receiver or transponder. However, with the new this new ZeroLoss ™
technology, we can now offer a solution that greatly simplifies installation
whilst maintaining performance.
The unit is waterproof and matches the aesthetics of the current range of
transponders and receivers, so can easily be integrated into any vessel. It
is suitable for operation on 12V or 24V systems and features three status
LEDs that show the unit is powered correctly and when the AIS or VHF
transmits.
SPECIFICATIONS
• Enables an existing VHF antenna to be used for both the standard VHF
and AIS system
• Patented ZeroLoss™ technology for exceptional performance
• Works with all Class B transponders and receivers
• Supplied with power cable, PL259-PL259 cable assembly and BNCBNC cable assembly for easy installation (all cables 0.75m long)
• AM-FM radio antenna connection for standard car stereo radio (integrated in power cable)
• 12v or 24v 0peration and low power consumption
• Fail safe operation
• Same size and design as the new AIT2000
• Makes installation of an AIS receiver or transponder very quick and
simple
• Saves on additional antenna clutter

Many existing AIS compatible chart plotters do not fully support AIS SARTs
but with the AIS Life Guard connected to an AIS transponder or AIS receiver, you can have a complete working AIS SART man overboard system.
Operation is automatic, simply connect the two wire NMEA input on the AIS
Life Guard to the NMEA output of your AIS and it will listen to all AIS traffic.
As soon as an AIS SART transmission is detected the AIS Life Guard will
sound its internal 95dB alarm and display a red warning light. For larger
installations, it can also be connected to an external alarm (not supplied) so
that the whole boat is immediately alerted.
The AIS Life Guard detects both message 1 and message 14, the two AIS
messages reserved for AIS SARTs and will also give a short three beep
alarm if it detects an AIS SART test message, great for checking correct
operation of your AIS SARTs prior to a voyage.

GPS150 DUALNAV™ GPS/GLONASS SENSOR
Typical system
“DualNav technology offers unprecedented positioning accuracy with
GPS and GLONASS compatibility and 10Hz super-fast NMEA position
updates”
KEY FEATURES
The GPS150 DualNav™ positioning sensor combines a super accurate 50
channel GPS with GLONASS, the Russian funded satellite positioning system
that is now on line and providing an excellent back up or alternative to GPS.
This “smart” sensor will automatically switch between the systems or the user
can manually select the most appropriate for their activity. In DualNav mode,
a sophisticated algorithm combines GPS and GLONASS data to offer sub
1m accuracy. The GPS150 will also be able to utilise the European funded
Galileo positioning system when it comes on line (IOC – Initial Operation
Capability in 2018).
The implementation of GLONASS as an additional satellite positioning
system is probably the biggest step change in maritime navigation since
GPS was fully augmented back in the mid 90’s. Digital Yacht’s GPS150
utilises the industry standard NMEA data format allowing older chart plotters as well as current generation products to take advantage of this new
technology.
The GPS150 also allows the user to select a variety of different NMEA
baud rates (4800, 38400 and 115200) to allow interfacing with legacy
and current systems. It also supports a new TurboNav™ mode which
will appeal to racing yachtsmen and performance users where GPS/
GLONASS data is output at 10Hz (10 x faster update than normal)
and with an interface speed of 115200 baud which is 24 x the speed
of normal NMEA data. This massively improves slow speed navigation
data as well as providing the best course and speed data in a dynamic
situation.
The GPS150 houses all the electronics in its compact 75mm antenna and
has a single multi core cable for power and data. Power consumption is
just 30mA at 12V. It can be used as a simple positioning sensor for plotter
20
or VHF DSC systems as well as a precision, high speed sensor for performance sailing/super yachts. Setup is easy with a block of simple internal
switches setting the characteristics of the unit. This allows the device to
be programmed in the field without specialist software or programming
tools.
The GPS150 can also connect to the WLN10 wireless interface to allow
data to be sent to mobile devices such as iPhones, iPads and Tablets.
There is also a USB interface for PC and MAC users (ZDIGUSBNMEA).
SPECIFICATIONS
• 50 channel precision GPS/GLONASS positioning sensor
• Just 75mm in diameter and designed to fit industry standard 1” mounts
• Ultra tough, waterproof construction
• NMEA output configurable for 4800, 38400 and 115200 baud
• Selectable update rates from 1 to 10Hz
• Configurable in the field using simple DIP switches inside the antenna
• TurboNav mode offers super fast updates to optimise positioning information in slow and high speed applications
• WAAS/EGNOS/SBAS enabled for sub 1m accuracy
• User selectable GPS/GLONASS mode or auto selection
• Ultra low 30mA power consumption (at 12V DC)
• 5-30V DC power input
The installer can set the characteristics of the GPS150
such as mode, NMEA data output and update rate using
a series of simple internal DIP switches - no complicated
software to upload.

GPS AND NOW GLONASS
DUALNAV™ – NEW TECHNOLOGY
Much political discussion has taken place over our reliance on GPS
The new performance is particularly noticeable if the receiver
technology, to the point where both Europe (Galileo) and China (Compass)
are developing their own satellite based navigation systems, which are
scheduled to be fully operational by 2020. However, whilst GPS was being
developed in the 1980s, there was another competitive system developed
in Russia called GLONASS. This system was very much over shadowed by
the American GPS system and due to the secrecy surrounding the technology and the difficulties for non-Russian companies to license this technology, it never achieved wide spread commercial use outside of Russia and
surrounding countries.
is mounted below deck/inside the wheelhouse where the high
sensitivity receiver still gives a good position fix or when there are
obstructions blocking the view of the sky, such as a wet sail shadowing the antenna or when sailing in rivers or close to cliffs, plus
DualNav™ technology with more satellites to choose from, gives a
much more accurate fix.
Knowing your position whilst at sea is key to safe navigation. What we now
take for granted, was extremely difficult, time consuming and inaccurate.
Then, in the latter half of the 20th century, came the electronic positioning
systems – Decca, Loran, Transit and in the 1990s, the global positioning
system, GPS. Over 20 years have passed since the first GPS receivers
were commercially available and in this time the whole world has come to
rely on this US funded technology. Now every boat, plane, car and train
that we travel on has GPS navigation and even your smart phone can give
a GPS position accurate to within 10m, anywhere in the world, at the touch
of a button.
During Russia’s difficult financial period between 1989-1999, government
spending on their space program was cut by 80% and launching of new
GLONASS satellites stopped. With relatively short life spans the GLONASS
satellites soon started to fail and by 2001 there were only 6 satellites still
operational and the GLONASS service effectively ceased.
Most observers at the time thought this would be the death of GLONASS
but in 2000, with the Russian economy recovering, President Vladimir Putin
took a special interest in GLONASS and made the restoration of this service
a high priority. Between 2002-2011, a large investment was made and at
the end of 2011 GLONASS was fully restored and now offers worldwide
coverage (with 24 operational satellites) and accuracy almost as good as
GPS. In areas of high Latitudes (North and South) GLONASS is more accurate than GPS due to the orbital position of the satellites.
Now with the GPS150 DualNav™ technology, boat owners can
have a single sensor that will automatically read satellite data
from both GPS and GLONASS constellations, choosing the best
signals from over 50 satellites. Wherever you are in the world
you now have twice the satellites to choose from resulting in the
GPS150 receiver having much better coverage, time to first fix and
positional accuracy. Add to this the new high sensitivity receiver
design, selectable baud rate and 10Hz position update rate and
you have a GPS receiver that is significantly better than every
previous marine GPS receiver on the market.
On larger boats, it is now possible to have two completely separate position sources, not just two GPS units but two different
positioning systems so that you can compare and validate your
actual position. Set one GPS150 to GPS mode and another
GPS150 to GLONASS mode and you have dual redundancy and
two independent positioning systems.
The GPS150 also supports SBAS (Satellite-Based Augmentation
System) which is the generic name given to the differential signal
transmitted by various local geo-stationary satellites. SBAS allows
the GPS150 receiver to remove errors in the position due to environmental conditions and improves accuracy down to <1m. Using
WAAS in the US and EGNOS in Europe the GPS150 will automatically switch to differential SBAS mode when available.

HSC100 COMPASS SENSOR
The HSC100 will provide a 10Hz fast
heading output for AIS, MARPA, radar
course up/north up and chart plotter
applications
Typical system
“Fluxgate compass with auto calibration and fast heading output for
MARPA or course up radar stabilisation”
KEY FEATURES
Accurate compass heading data remains a fundamental parameter for
marine navigation and the HSC100 uses fluxgate technology to deliver
heading data for on board systems. Typical applications include enabling
course up and true motion type displays on chart plotters, radar overlay
onto electronic charts and stabilisation of radars when used for MARPA/
ARPA target tracking. Integrated instrument systems can also benefit
from having compass information to calculate real time tidal set and drift
when interfaced with a log and GPS.
Most low cost heading sensors only output data at 1Hz (once per
second) but the HSC100 outputs at 10Hz which is required for MARPA
target tracking and accurate radar overlays (Part # ZDIGHSC100).
We have also released a new “Rate of Turn” version of the HSC100 that
outputs the HDT and ROT messages required by a Class A transponder.
For non-mandatory vessels, this provides a simple low cost solution
for adding heading and rate of turn to Class A transponders (Part #
ZDIGHSC100T)
steel hulled vessels. It also features an automatic calibration routine to
compensate for the effects of nearby magnetic influences. This involves
turning the boat through 1.5 circles at a constant angular velocity whilst
in calibration mode. Once completed, typical accuracies are within 0.5
degrees.
SPECIFICATIONS
• High Speed (10HZ) NMEA electronic fluxgate compass sensor
• Ideal for use with radar overlay and MARPA target tracking systems

NMEA TO NETWORK SERVER
NTN10 NMEA 0183 TO NETWORK GATEWAY
Typical system
“Overlay NMEA navigation data onto an existing network”
KEY FEATURES
Many large yachts now have an ethernet network installed at the build
stage to allow easy installation of modern IT & communications products.
The NTN10 allows NMEA 0183 navigation data to also be connected to the
network, sharing the same cabling and allowing devices connected to the
network to utilise this data.
SPECIFICATIONS
• NMEA to network server
• Configurable for 4800 or 38400 format NMEA data and also compatible
with MUX100 multiplexer
• UDP or TCP/IP server formats programmable by installer
• Simple RJ45 network connection
• Bi directional interface
• 12/24V installation
On larger vessels, there will often be multiple wireless access points
connected to the network and these can then also wirelessly transfer the
data to connected devices like iPads and tablets.
The main reason for installing is to get navigation data from the vessels
instruments, AIS or GPS onto the main network. It means connected
devices like iPads or tablets then only have one network to select which
can aggregate internet and navigation network data. Skippers can then
use their iPad for navigation tasks using the main boat’s data. It also introduces the capability of an internet connected app for functionality such as
live chart updates or weather overlays.
The NTN10 supports both TCP/IP and UDP data formats for maximum
compatibility and can accept 4800 or 38400 baud NMEA data.

NMEA TO SIGNAL K GATEWAY
iKOMMUNICATE
NMEA0183/2000 TO SIGNAL K GATEWAY
Typical system
“The Kickstarter funded success story that is enabling the Internet of
Things Afloat”
KEY FEATURES
iKommunicate is an intelligent gateway device that allows traditional
boat navigation systems to be part of the “Internet of Things”. Converting “closed” industry standard NMEA data to Signal K, the new “open”
HTML5 based internet ready data format, a whole new world of social and
connected boating will now be possible.
Traditional NMEA0183 and newer NMEA2000 networks are reliable, well
proven and fit for purpose, but the costs for developers to join the NMEA,
buy standards and certify their software, severely restricted the number
of marine applications that use NMEA data. With Signal K, a new open
data format for boats, all of this is about to change and soon it will be easy
for developers to read and use NMEA data. iKommunicate is driving this
change, as the first NMEA to Signal K gateway product that will connect
to the NMEA networks and convert all of the data in to the new Signal K
format
With 3x opto-isolated NMEA0183 Inputs, 2x differential NMEA0183
Outputs and an NMEA2000 Network interface, iKommunicate can handle
any NMEA data thrown at it. Its 120MHz Atmel processor, efficiently
converts the NMEA data in to Signal K JSON data, the standard for the
latest generation of HTML5 websites and apps, which is then output via
HTTP or multiple high speed Web Sockets.
iKommunicate’s Ethernet interface, allows it to be connected to the boats
wired/wireless network so any mobile device connected to the network can
display Signal K data in its browser or app. Two web apps are pre-installed
in iKommunicate (including the popular Instrument Panel) so that you can
immediately start displaying NMEA data from your network and its 8GB
micro SD card can host any new Signal K web apps as they become
available.

KEY FEATURES
Two LEDs on the face of the unit give indication of the data status, with a
With modern AIS receivers and transponders outputting high speed
NMEA0183 data at 38400 baud, it is often difficult to connect AIS data
and low speed GPS or instrument data at 4800 baud to some chart plotters and/or PCs that have just one NMEA 0183 input. With the MUX100,
all data received on the two input ports is multiplexed and transmitted on
output 1 at 38400 baud. It Is pre-configured so that Input 1 accepts AIS
data at 38400 baud and input 2 accepts GPS/instrument data at 4800
baud.
solid LED showing which port is currently providing GPS position and a
flashing light on the other port to show that data is being received. If either
LED is not lit of flashing it indicates no NMEA data present.
SPECIFICATIONS
Often low speed GPS data is required to give position information to a
DSC VHF, but when an AIS transponder is fitted the GPS data is often only
available at 38400 baud which will be ignored by the VHF. The MUX100
intelligently takes the GPS data from the AIS present on input 1 and
re-transmits this on output 2 at 4800 baud – which can then be connected to the VHF. As a safety feature, should GPS data on input 1 be invalid
or lost, the MUX100 will automatically switch to the GPS data on input
2 and transmit this on output 1 and output 2. To avoid duplicated data
confusing other equipment, the MUX100 automatically blocks duplicated
data on port 2.
Using intelligent priority switching, the MUX100 gives priority to input 1
• Dual input/output NMEA0183 multiplexer – simplifies NMEA integration and
installation
• Accepts 38400 baud data on input 1 and 4800 baud data on input 2
• Combines all received data and transmits this data on output 1 at 38400
baud
• Extracts the GPS data from the high speed input 1 and re-transmits at low
speed on output 2
• Important safety feature - gives priority to GPS on input 1 but switches to
input 2 if position lost on input 1. Will switch back to input 1 when valid position fix data is received again
• Easy to install IP54 black box solution
• Opto isolated inputs and true NMEA differential output capable of driving
several devices

“Use your iPhone or iPad to explore, plan and navigate your boating
trips in real time and in high resolution using the latest NOAA digital
vector marine charts covering the whole of the US. Vector charts
allow drill down on nav-aid data as well as seamless, fast panning
and zooming across charts. Full integration with Digital Yacht WLN10,
NavLink and iNavHub products for on board integration. Supports AIS
overlays, tidal data, weather buoys and more.”
KEY FEATURES
NavLink US is a low cost app designed for use with an iPhone or iPad.
It transforms your iPad into a full function chart plotter with detailed electronic charts and an overlay of your boat’s position, track and heading.
It’s purchased through the Apple app store and includes detailed NOAA
charts covering the whole of the US.
Charts can be presented north up or course up and routes and waypoints
are created and edited using a simple touch screen interface. Real time
navigation shows your current position, track, course, speed, ETA, VMG,
bearing and distance to next waypoint. There’s a simple A-B chart ruler
too and you can tap on an object such as a buoy or nav-aid and get a
pop up data window of its characteristics. Current weather data and local
conditions can be downloaded from weather buoys (internet connection
required) which is great for last minute local weather before setting off on a
voyage. The latest NOAA charts are vector based so data can be layered
and enabled / disabled by the user allowing charts to be de-cluttered as
appropriate.
It’s also designed to work seamlessly with Digital Yacht’s NMEA to WiFi
devices so will integrate with your boat’s GPS and AIS systems. If AIS
data is available, you’ll see AIS targets overlaid with all their identity infor-
reduces battery drain when using an external source. It also means your
iPad/Phone can be used below deck and generally, the boat’s GPS is superior for marine based navigation.
NavLink also helps with your watch keeping and lookouts. In HorizonView
mode, you can use the camera on the iPad to scan the horizon. You’ll get
an overlay on the camera screen of nav-aids, AIS targets and waypoints
which serves as a great visualisation aid.

NavLink US MAC
KEY FEATURES
NavLink MAC is an Apple MAC based electronic charting and navigation
package which turns a MacBook into a full function chart plotter. The
application comes complete with highly detailed NOAA vector charts for
the whole of the US and allows real time positioning, tracking and routing.
Simply create a route with a click of the mouse to quickly and easily get
bearing, distance and ETA information to your destination. AIS targets can
also be overlaid onto the electronic charting. Charts can be zoomed and
panned using intuitive finger gestures on the MAC track pad.
The MAC will require a GPS connection for location and optional connection to AIS if an AIS overlay of targets is required. Digital Yacht’s range
of GPS sensors or their low cost USB-NMEA adaptor can be utilised
to connect the MAC to the boat’s GPS/AIS system. Alternatively, for a
wire free solution, NavLink supports a connection via wifi to any of Digital
Yacht’s NMEA to wireless devices such as iAIS and the WLN10.
The NOAA charts feature incredible detail as they are the official digitised
versions of the US Government charts and show buoys, navaids, depth
contours, wrecks, spot depths, restrictions etc. It also supports “drill
down” data so an object such as a buoy can be queried for its characteristics. Weather buoys are also supported for local weather conditions (an

AISView is designed to receive and display wireless NMEA data from any of
Digital Yacht’s NMEA to Wifi devices like the WLN10, NavLink, iNavHub or iAIS.
Although a “wire free” connection is the easiest way to get data in to the tablet,
if you do not have one of our wireless NMEA products, you can also connect
using Digital Yacht’s USB-NMEA adaptor. Connect this cable to the NMEA0183
output of your AIS and plug the USB connector in to a suitable USB OTG cable
for your tablet and you have a simple and cost effective method of getting AIS
data in to the tablet
Even if you have a full featured AIS display on your main plotter, having an extra
display on a tablet is useful as a repeater or 2nd display. Utilising the internal
GPS of the Android tablet, you will also have a completely separate backup
system, which should your main plotter fail, will display your position, all of the
AIS targets around you and also provide anti-collision alarms with CPA and
TCPA calculations.
Once installed, you’ll see an overlay of AIS target information onto a background Google map. Tap on a target and you’ll get a drop down list with
identity, heading and closest point of approach (CPA) information. A heading
vector makes it easy to see potential collision course targets. Google maps

CLA1000 CLASS A TRANSPONDER
VHF
ANTENNA
BREAKOUT BOX
Typical system
“Fully IMO approved, Class A AIS transponder for certified installation
on vessels over 300 GRT”
KEY FEATURES
The CLA1000 from Digital Deep Sea is a fully approved, Class A transponder that meets all IMO requirements. Built to the most demanding of
standards, the CLA1000 is MED Wheel Marked and comes with a global
2 year warranty.
Normally fitted to larger vessels that are mandated to fit a Class A
Transponder due to their size or number of passengers, many smaller
non-mandated vessels can also benefit from fitting a Class A transponder.
With 12W transmit power, compared to 2W for Class B, many off shore
sail boats will benefit from being visible at greater ranges, whilst the
a realistic consideration for non-mandated vessels that would benefit from
fitting a Class A transponder but could not justify the previously high price
of this type of device.
SPECIFICATIONS
• Fully approved and MED Wheel Marked Class A Transponder
• Ultra Compact Design
• Easy soft key and rotary encoder operation
• Built-in GPS with easy to fit 1” x 14tpi mount GPS antenna
• Pilot Plug for easy PC connection
• Remote break out box for on-board interfacing
• Supplied with configuration software and SmarterTrack Lite
AIS software
faster (up to every 2 seconds) update rate of the Class A transmissions,
compared to every 30 seconds with Class B, will definitely benefit larger
power boats that can go a long distance in 30 seconds.
Two other important benefits of Class A Transponders are that they take
priority over Class B transponders in areas of high AIS traffic (transmission slot allocation is guaranteed for Class A transponders) and they are
always displayed on other Class A transponders and ECDIS systems on
board large commercial vessels. Hitting a new price point for Class A Transponders, the CLA1000 is now

S1000 AIS SMART SART
VHF
ANTENNA
LIFE GUARD
Typical system
“IMO Compliant AIS SART with the latest technology, performance and
great value”
KEY FEATURES
A SART (Search and rescue transponder) is a mandatory fit for live saving
apparatus on all vessels over 300GRT. Traditional technology used a
radar type device, but new legislation allows an AIS SART to be used with
associated performance and cost benefits. AIS SARTs positively identify
the casualty and give a regular position update which can be graphically
displayed on a Class A MKD, ECDIS or plotter.
The S1000 is a fully IMO compliant and approved AIS SART (Wheel Marked)
which once activated, will display a target on any Class A or B transponder
system or on an AIS receiver. As such it greatly aids recovery of the casualty
or liferaft. SART alarms like our AIS Lifeguard are also activated by the signal
from these devices.
(SART ACTIVE) is sent every 4 minutes.
The S1000 SART also offers considerable safety benefits for leisure users
and should be part of any safety pack for coastal or ocean sailing.
SPECIFICATIONS
• Full IMO Compliant, Wheel Marked AIS SART
• 50 channel GPS receiver built in
• Specialist VHF antenna technology for superior performance
• LED indications for test and activation
• When activated transmits position 8 times per minute
• 96 hour battery life
• Sends SART ACTIVE safety message every 4 minutes
• Easy to change, low cost battery replacement
The S1000 utilises specialist VHF antenna technology to offer exceptional
range (typically up to 10NM) and has a battery life of 96 hours under
operation. It comes with a storage bag and bracket mount and has a 1m
telescopic pole integrated so it can be used in a liferaft. The integrated 50
channel GPS offers a very fast time to first fix (typically under 40 seconds)
and thereafter position information is transmitted 8 times per minute. The
SART shows as a SART target on any AIS system and a safety message

KEY FEATURES
All AIS Class A Transponders have a special “Pilot Plug” that is intended to
allow a Commercial Pilot to quickly and reliably connect their laptop PC to
the Class A Transponder when they arrive onboard.
The Digital Deep Sea Pilot Plug Cable, allows anyone to connect their
PC to a Class A Transponder and receive NMEA0183 AIS and GPS data
via a USB port. With some models of Class A transponders, this cable
can also be used to configure the Class A with static AIS data and/or the
mandatory voyage data that should always be programmed in to a Class
A transponder before starting a passage.
The NMEA to USB Adaptor works on PCs, Macs and Linux computers,
and converts NMEA 0183 data, used by many marine systems, into a
USB format that can be plugged into most modern computers.
you’ll get a bonus as SmarterTrack Lite AIS viewing software is included
on the CD - effectively turning your PC into an AIS target display.

CLASS A PC PILOT PLUG EXTENSION CABLE
KEY FEATURES
All AIS Class A Transponders have a special “Pilot Plug” that is intended to
allow a Commercial Pilot to quickly and reliably connect their laptop PC to
the Class A Transponder when they arrive onboard.
Often on larger vessels the normal 1-2m length of the Pilot Plug can make
connecting to the vessels Class A transponder difficult. As most Pilot Plug
cables use a USB interface, which is limited to 5m, extending the cable
can be problematic.
SPECIFICATIONS
• 10m Cable
• Conforms to the IMO SN/Circ.227
• Can be used to extend any Pilot Plug
• Allows you to extend the cable without increasing the USB cable length
which is limited to 5m
The Digital Yacht extension cable, extends the NMEA0183 wiring and not
the USB wiring making it possible to extend up to 10m (or more) plus the
length of the existing Pilot Plug cable.

Typical system
KEY FEATURES
• Virtual and synthetic capability (up to 5)
• Adjustable transmit power (1 to 12.5W)
DigAtoN AIS AtoNs fit to marine structures, hazards, buoys or can
be configured to represent a virtual or synthetic point if mounted
remotely from a physical location. AIS equipped vessels and shore
stations can then not only identify the position of these marks but
also read data (such as weather and instruments) collected by the
AtoN. The DigAtoN is available as a Class 1 device (transmit only)
or a Class 3 device (transmit and receive). Class 1 devices require a
local AIS base station to be operating in the same area as the AtoN
whereas Class 3 devices can internally allocate slots for transmission allowing them to be placed anywhere. Class 3 devices can
also be configured and queried remotely and wirelessly “chained”
together for extended range configuration. DigAtoN products are
also available with an additional sensor interface installed to allow
extended monitoring and digital switching capability.
• Highly configurable for all AtoN applications with full range of
interface solutions from Digital DeepSea
• Additional S models feature extended I/O capability –
• Current sense
• Three non-isolated analogue inputs and two isolated
analogue inputs
• 5 isolated digital I/Os and 5 non-isolated digital I/Os
• Two RS232 ports and a fully isolated RS422/NMEA port
• Two relay drive outputs
• SDI-12 serial bus
• Input voltage monitor (no external connection required)
APPLICATIONS
• Marking offshore structures, wind farms, wrecks, points of interest or danger areas
• Transfer of local meteorological conditions such as wind, pressure, wave height. Custom data transmission to base stations
such as electrical status, tide, current, salinity etc measurements
and localised tide and current information
• Use virtual or synthetic AtoN capability to mark 5 virtual points
(ideal for yacht club racing or movable marks)
