The SLR200G is a Dual Channel synthesized AIS receiver fitted with an integral GPS Receiver. Connection of an external GPS and VHF antenna enables the SLR200G to output position, course and speed along with AIS data received on one single port. It enables boats sailing in busy shipping lanes, to receive AIS (Automatic Identification System) information being transmitted from either vessels over 300 tons that, due to recent world-wide legislation, are required to fit Class “A” AIS transponders. or small craft Class "B" transmissions.
Connected to a compatible on board PC running a Navigation Program, or Chart Plotter, the information can be displayed on screen giving the skipper or harbour authority a visual interpretation of the name, position, course and speed of vessels within VHF range. This information is updated every 3 seconds to 6 minutes depending on speed and rate of turn, enabling the track of the vessels in range to be plotted.
The information that can be received by the SLR200G is as follows:
Name of vessel Call Sign Type of Vessel Destination
Speed (SOG) Course (COG) Heading Rate of Turn
Position Navigational Status Vessel dimensions MMSI Number
