Connects to the pilot plug interface so iPad, iPhones and other tablets can share the AIS data via a wifi link.
PilotLINK is a wireless interface for Class A AIS systems. All Class A transponders share a common “Pilot Plug” connector that Pilot-LINK connects directly to via a 1m cable. PilotLINK then creates a wifi navigation network on board the vessel which allows AIS and GPS data from the Class A to be sent directly to any connected mobile devices such as phones or tablets. It’s compatible with iOS and Android systems (depending upon app utilised) as well as PC & MAC based systems.
PilotLINK is stand alone and can operate from its internal, user replaceable, dry battery (PP3) for up to 15 hours. Alternatively, it can connect via a standard mini USB connector to any USB style power pack or AC/DC USB power adaptor that are readily available from many 3rd parties.
