SevenStar S288: AIS Class A transponder

AIS Classe A S288 SevenStar

AIS transponder Class A SevenStar S288, display with target position, certified IEC, Wheelmark, USCG and FCC standards, DLG n.18 of 16/02/2011.


SevenStar with its attitude towards the professional market, could not but include in its range an AIS transponder class "A".
This is the idea behind the S.288 model, sober in style, but powerful inside and, in keeping with tradition, SevenStar is an apparatus designed to make it as reliable as possible and to last over time.

The display provides a basic view of the position of the AIS targets around the ship and does not replace the use of navigation systems (ECDIS plotters) that can better highlight these details.

The transmitter supports both AIS Class A maritime mode (high seas / SOLAS) and Inland AIS terrestrial mode. Through the menu you can choose one of the two modes and this operation must be performed at the time of installation.

It is certified according to IEC standards for offshore navigation, and is Wheelmark, USCG and FCC approved.
