Reduce your risk of collision with the fully integrated NAIS-400 Class B AIS transceiver—essential for navigating today’s busy shipping lanes and congested ports. Compact in size, lightweight, fully waterproof and featuring multiple connections, the NAIS-400 is ideal for networking with any NS-Series, Lowrance HDS and HDS Gen2 display and Simrad’s RS VHF radios. External switch input for silent mode control. Can share existing VHF antenna with your radio using the NSPL-400 Antenna Splitter, Model 14078059, eliminating the hassle of installing a separate AIS antenna. Both the NAIS-400 and NSPL-400 operate at extremely low power levels. NSPL-400 also provides connections for your FM radio receiver.
