Lowrance Launches NEW NAIS500 Class-B AIS

Lowrance®, a world-leader in fishing electronics since 1957, announced today, a fully integrated, Class-B Automatic Identification System (AIS) transponder – the Lowrance NAIS 500. Essential for navigating busy waterways and congested ports, the NAIS 500 — which includes a dedicated GPS-500 receiver — is compact in size, lightweight and fully waterproof. It offers low power draw and features multiple connections for networking with any HDS Carbon and HDS Gen3 series multifunction display.

Meeting the strict regulations set for Class-B AIS transponders, the NAIS 500 ensures that a vessel is seen on a display – reducing the risk of collisions. The transponder sends a signal to other vessels in the area allowing boaters to plan any necessary avoidance maneuvers well in advance. Compatible with NMEA 2000®, NMEA 0183®, NMEA 0183 multiplexing and USB, the NAIS 500 is simple to install in any configuration. Capable of withstanding the harshest conditions, the transponder meets IPX7 standards. Weighing less than 250 grams and featuring a low average power consumption of 180 mA at 12 VDC, the NAIS 500 is ideal for any size powerboat.

“Identifying boats that are heading towards you is almost as important as knowing where you are and is vital to safe passage,” said Leif Ottosson, CEO, Navico. “With current regulations, most commercial ships are required to have AIS onboard. The NAIS 500 works with all Lowrance multifunction displays to provide anglers with the peace of mind that, regardless of the conditions, they will be visible to any traffic in the area.”

Pairing the NSPL-500 VHF Splitter Box with the NAIS-500 enables the capability to use a single VHF antenna for the NAIS-500 and a VHF fixed-mount radio.

About Scott Mitchell

I have been fishing since I was 8 years old – some say obsessed. Originally from the Illawarra, just south of Sydney NSW Australia. I grew up fishing for anything with fins (and sometimes without). I have many fond memories of fishing in Lake Illawarra ,Warilla Beach , Barrack point, Bass point and from the front of Windang Island as a kid. I spent my teenage years land based game fishing from just about every ledge along the NSW coast from Coffs Harbour in the North to Green Cape in the South. Some of the most memorable fishing I have done to date was on the stones doing battle with large tuna and marlin.I picked up my first fly rod in 1989 - a #9wht outfit which I used to catch tailor , salmon, frigates, luderick, bream etc while waiting for a run on the big gear. I now enjoy fly fishing when ever the oppertunity arrises with over 150 species on the long wand to date. http://www.scotto.com.au/
