See and be seen

For your own safety and the safety of all skippers around you, installing AIS is definitely recommended. With an AIS system on board, other AIS vessels are visible on your chart and you are also visible to other ships. With the predicted trajectory you can immediately see if a ship is on collision course.

By clicking on an AIS ship you can see, among other things, the dimensions, speed, course and the callsign. This allows you to quickly contact the ship via the VHF radio if necessary.

The new EasyTRX3 AIS transponder
The new EasyTRX3 is now available in our online shop. This robust class B AIS transponder has a waterproof and compact design and is always equipped with an internal GPS antenna, a NMEA2000 interface and an integrated splitter. With this internal splitter you can easily connect the transponder to your VHF antenna.

This new EasyTRX3 uses the SOTDMA technology. Thanks to this innovation, the AIS transponder broadcasts more often because a time slot will already been reserved. As a result, other ships with an AIS receiver will see you sooner and more often, which means you will sail more safely.

The EasyTRX3 is also available in a WiFi version. This allows you to connect the transponder wirelessly to your laptop, tablet or smartphone.

We can deliver most versions within a few days. We deliver the device fully programmed with your data.
