All AIS Class A Transponders have a special “Pilot Plug” that is intended to allow a Commercial Pilot to quickly and reliably connect their laptop PC to the Class A Transponder when they arrive onboard.
Often on larger vessels the normal 1-2m length of the Pilot Plug can make connecting to the vessels Class A transponder difficult. Therefore, as most Pilot Plug cables use a USB interface, that has a limit of 5m, extending the cable can be problematic.
The Digital Yacht Pilot Plug extension cable, extends the NMEA0183 wiring and not the USB wiring. As a result, this makes it possible to extend up to 10m (or more). Plus the length of the existing Pilot Plug cable.
A simple and low-cost NMEA 2000 starter kit which allows for up to 3 devices to interconnect.
“The JB1 is a power and NMEA 0183 junction box to simply interconnect NMEA 0183 products and ideal for DIY installation.”
“iKommunicate + iKConnect router bundle sends NMEA0183 & 2000 over Wi-Fi. In addition to NMEA over wifi interfacing, iKommunicate supports the new and rapidly emerging Signal K.”
