The MX-5000 GPS receiver is a 12 channel parallel GPS receiver with SBAS function. Its dual channel AIS* receiver (Ch. 87B and Ch. 88B) simultaneously receives both Class A and Class B AIS information.

The plotter display looks like a marine radar display. North-up, course-up and range zoom from 0.125 nm to 24 nm are supported.
• The target list display shows all detected AIS equipped vessels and targets.
• The danger list display shows a list of vessels that are within 6 nm CPA (Closest Point of Approach) and 60 minutes TCPA (Time to CPA) from your vessel.
You can be sort the danger list by CPA or TCPA order.

When a vessel comes into range, the vessel icon blinks on the plotter display and emits a beep sound. When connected to external audio equipment installed on the deck tower, the collision alarm function will alert you even when you are away from the AIS transponder.

• Transponder both receives and sends AIS data
• 2 W output power
• Full dot-matrix display visually shows real-time vessel traffic information
• PC and other marine network equipment is not required, but can be connected
• 3 lines of NMEA0183 Input/Output
• External alarm connection to emit a collision alarm from external audio equipment on the deck or tower
• Integration with Icom VHF radios IC-M604 or IC-M504

* AIS (Automatic Identification System) devices transmit and receive (or just receive or transmit) coded VHF frequency signals between AIS instrument equipped vessels, aiding them in avoiding collisions. The AI system has also been adapted for use in aiding man overboard rescues.

Unlike radar, AIS signals suffer little or no interference from atmospheric conditions or moderate topography (such as bends in a channels or moderate hills). Furthermore, AIS transmissions are content rich. In addition to basic position, course and speed information, AIS Class A transmissions also carry data regarding vessel identification, call sign, destination, cargo, draft, rate of turn, and more.

Please note: FCC requires AIS transponders to be programmed before they are sold. Fisheries will need MMSI number, FCC Callsign, and the location of the GPS antenna (Length from bow, stern, port, and starboard) in order to program the device.
