The Simrad V3100 Class-B AIS is designed to meet the needs of any vessel operating in high-traffic areas. SOTDMA technology and increased output provide improved transmission reliability and range. This is a cost-effective package for vessels that require greater performance than standard Class B AIS systems, but do not require a full Class A solution.
The Simrad V3100 Class-B AIS incorporates the same SOTDMA technology found in Class A systems, and this self-organizing technology allows the V3100 to negotiate a regular transmission time slot with other AIS units in range. This allows greater facilitating more frequent and reliable position updates in areas of high AIS activity such as crowded harbors and waterways.
With a maximum transmission power of five Watts—more than double the output power of standard Class B systems—the V3100 allows a vessel to be detected at greater range and provides more reliable transmission to satellite-based AIS receivers.
This ‘black box’ AIS solution is designed to work with Simrad multi-function displays and other NMEA 2000® or NMEA 0183® connected marine electronics.
The V3100 features a maximum transmission power of 5 Watts, 2.5 times the transmission power of standard Class B AIS solutions. This allows vessels equipped with the V3100 to be detected over AIS at a greater range, and provides more reliable transmission to satellite-based AIS receivers.
