B200 Class B5W/SO

The em-trak B200 is a high transmit power (5W) priority AIS Class B transceiver specifically designed for serious ocean sailors, offering enhanced safety through maximum range and transmission priority.

The high powered, advanced AIS engine provides reliability you can depend on and the very best AIS performance in its class. Completely water and weatherproof (IPx6 & IPx7 certified), and ruggedized to withstand shock and vibration, the B200 has been extensively tested in the most extreme marine environments and will provide years of maintenance free operation. The dual NMEA2000 & 0183, coupled with serial ports, USB, WiFi, and Bluetooth also make connecting to all your tablets, PC’s, display and navigation devices easy and simple.

Peace of mind is further enhanced with an internal battery that ensures continuous operation for up 120 hours in the event of total power loss. The B200 also supports silent mode, where transmissions are switched off, but receiving continues, and can be enabled through the integrated switch.
