Icom MXA-5000 Dual Channel AIS Receiver with Antenna Splitter - MXA5000

 

The MXA-5000 dual channel AIS receiver allows boat owners to receive AIS information (both Class A and Class B AIS signals) on two channels simultaneously and outputs this real-time information on a computer, radar or a chart plotter, thus aiding navigation and collision avoidance.

Ideal for a wide range of users - These include leisure and commercial boatowners, professional maritime users such as port management, harbour masters, marina management and anyone with an interest in maritime/shipping activity.

Dual channel receive capability - The MXA-5000 receives both Ch. 87B (161.975MHz) and Ch. 88B (162.025MHz) simultaneously which improves the accuracy of data received. This dual channel receive capability makes the MXA-5000 more flexible for obtaining AIS information from transmitters that operate on only one of the AIS channels.

Third party navigation equipment connection - The MXA-5000 has an IEC 61162-1 standard (38,400 bps) interface that uses a RS-422 balanced connection for third party navigation equipment. This allows navigation equipment such as a radar or GPS chartplotter, which accept the VDM sentence format, to show the AIS data on the display.

PC connection - The MXA-5000 has an RS-232C unbalanced connection for PC connection. When used with AIS plotter software, the MXA-5000 allows you to monitor vessels traffic from a PC whether on Land or Sea.

GPS input - When installing the MXA-5000 to a vessel, the MXA-5000 can be connected between GPS receiver and navigation equipment for data input and output. The GPS position information such as RMC, GGA, GNS and GLL formats can be multiplexed with AIS data (VDM format).

Built in Antenna Splitter - If you already have a radio antenna installed, there?s no need for adding additional antennas, or to buy expensive after market splitters. The MXA-5000 splits the input signal for RX and protects itself when the radio transmits.

Compact size and light weight body - The MXA-5000 has only 132(W)ž34(H)ž155(D) mm dimensions and weighs only 400g for easy and flexible installation.

Please Note : To use the MXA-5000 with a Raymarine product you will need to purchase a multiplexer.

Features:

  • AIS data output using the NMEA 0183 format for easy connectivity to most radar's, chart plotters, and navigation systems.
  • Dual receive - both Class A and Class B signals simultaneously.
  • A full duplex receiver allowing for easy and efficient handling of the information without missing critical data.
  • A built in antenna splitter. If you already have a radio antenna installed, theres no need for adding additional antennas, or to buy expensive after market splitters.
  • The MXA5000 splits the input signal for RX and protects itself when the radio transmits.
  • The overlay of AIS information on multifunction displays, chart plotters, or radars.
  • A GPS data input port for multiplexing GPS and AIS Data.
  • AIS tracking to increase your navigational awareness.
