- Minimal power consumption compared to other AIS displays.
- Designed especially to filter out low priority AIS targets when required.
- Winner of two international innovation awards.
See how easy the Anchor Watch feature is to use
Using the Universal Shipborne Automatic Identification System (AIS) the AISWatchMate displays data from all AIS equipped vessels in your vicinity. Audible warning alarms are sounded if a potentially dangerous situation exists.
The alarm sounds whenever a ship is detected that will come dangerously close even though the ship may still be many miles away. You are alerted immediately with the closest point of approach (CPA) and the time until CPA.
Unique and customisable alarm and intelligent filter settings help to eliminate false alarms. Ships and alarms are displayed in a prioritised order assisting you to safely navigate in crowded shipping areas.
The AISWatchMate is designed to be used with both receivers and transponders. For low cost and very little power consumption, use the AISWatchMate with a receiver. For the ultimate AIS collision avoidance system, connect the AISWatchMate to a transponder.
The AISWatchMate 670 requires an external AIS receiver or AIS transponder.
Anchor Watch (Watch this feature in action on YouTube here)
This feature enables you to mark where you dropped anchor and sounds an alarm if your vessel moves outside a preset circle. Unlike any other anchor watch, when used with a heading sensor this one corrects for location of your GPS antenna eliminating position errors of your boat.
Direct Selective Calling (DSC)
Using the DSC function from your WatchMate allows you to initiate an “individual station call” to vessels that are displayed on your WatchMate screen. This feature makes it easy to message nearby boats, requesting them to switch to a specific channel for a VHF call.
Class A, Class B and AIS SART & MOB
The perfect companion for AIS Search and Rescue and Man Over Board devices, including the latest models. Sounds the alarm whenever an AIS-SART or AIS-MOB is triggered. Clearly identifies them on the display and provides continuous position updates as well as bearing and range to the SART or MOB. See how this looks on the AISWatchMate here
Provides a radar-like display of all vessels within the selected range. The display is oriented heading-up so it's very easy and natural to interpret. Dangerous and lost targets are readily identified.
Graphical Plot Shows Crossing Situations
Shows the relative position of a target vs. your vessel at the closest point of approach. This provides a graphical view of the crossing situation and clearly indicates whether a target will pass ahead or behind.
CPA and TCPA
Computes the closest point of approach and time until CPA. Alarms may be based on these and other factors.
Bearing and Range
Computes the bearing and range to each vessel. Bearing can be displayed in magnetic to facilitate easy visual identification using your compass and binoculars (requires magnetic variation data supplied by GPS). Bearings can alternatively be displayed in true or relative to your vessel's heading.
Vessels and alarms are presented in priority order.
To minimize clutter and false alarms, vessels can be filtered from either display or alarms.
Triggers alarm if a vessel will come too close. Full control of alarm parameters.
Sounds alarm if any vessel comes within the specified range. Both CPA alarms and guard alarms may be used together.
External alarm trigger
In addition to the internal alarm, an external buzzer, alarm, or signal light can be interfaced without requiring any additional relays (max 2A).
Consise and easy to read displays
Uncluttered easy to read display shows all available AIS data.
Displays received AIS Broadcast Safety Messages. These messages may contain important safety, navigation, weather, or shipping information.
Aids to navigation
Full support for AIS aids to navigation including off-position and virtual aid indicators.
GPS failure alert
Alerts you if your GPS stops working.
When coupled with a transponder it will alert you if the transponder has an operational problem, such as transmission failure.
Large backlit LCD
Adjustable daylight viewable backlit 125mm (5") LCD.
Easy to use
Four buttons control all features. Each button is clearly labeled on-screen. Buttons are backlit for night time use and illumination brightness is controllable. Each setting has on-screen help.
Ultra-Low power consumption
Designed for minimal power consumption the is extremely well suited for energy conscious vessels.
Easy interfacing to optional computers, chart plotters or other devices.
Your safety is increased when offshore or in busy traffic areas.
Second AIS Display Anywhere on Your Boat
Perfect if you need a second AIS display for your AISWatchMate 850 Transponder or AISWatchMate 750 Receiver. It can also be used with your existing black box AIS giving you the power of the WatchMate filters and alarms.
Safety at night
When night falls or the weather is bad it is often difficult to see other vessel's lights or determine their direction. The AISWatchMate 670 shows immediately which way the vessel is moving and will even plot the crossing situation.
You'll have each vessel's name and call sign. If you wish to call another vessel you will be able to ensure you are talking to the correct vessel. This is very important when operating in busy areas or in bad weather when visibility is reduced.
Operates on very low power
Energy concious users know how important low power operation can be particularly on a long voyage when charging from solar or wind. The AISWatchMate 670 consumes far less than a radar, chart plotter or computer.
Stand-alone unit doesn't require chart plotter, computer or radar
The AISWatchMate 670 is easy to interface to these devices but none are necessary for its operation. The AISWatchMate 670 is a fully stand-alone AIS collision warning solution.
