4' Universal AIS Antenna - 3dB with FME Termination
The Automatic Identification System (AIS) is a monitoring system of naval traffic, useful for navigation safety with difficult meteorological conditions (fog or nocturnal navigation). The AIS system operates on 2 expressly dedicated VHF channels (161.975 and 162.025 MHz) and allows the user to receive real time information about the traffic in the surrounding area.Glomex wants to make life easier for boat owners by offering a universal, rugged, high performance and adaptable to every need AIS antenna RA300AIS. The antenna, made with the best raw materials, is composed of a fibreglass tube, resistant to stress and treated with anti-yellowing material, which protects the internal brass elements. Long 1.2 m (4’), with a gain of 6dB, the antenna is both for masthead installation in order to have the best transmission performance, and for the installation on motor boats thanks to various optional supports.
On the bottom, the antenna has a 5/8”x24 threaded ferrule that can be matched with optional brackets and mounts. Moreover, the antenna can be provided with the Glomex high quality and low loss coaxial cable RG8X offered in various lengths and already pre-installed at both terminations with a special professional and miniaturized FME connector. If, however, it is necessary to have a longer antenna, you can use the 1,2m (4’) rugged extension RA301, made with the same construction materials of the AIS antenna to get outstanding aesthetics. This extension is easily mountable on the bottom of the antenna and is equipped with an internal, integrated 1”x14 ferrule to easily install it on any Glomex mounts. All these features allow boat owners to have a great freedom in the implementation of the AIS system and to have an extremely easy and fast installation, thanks to the FME-UHF adapter and various optional supports.
