Link2AIS and a laptop allow you to monitor AIS-equipped marine traffic in list format and as chart overlay. The Nauticast B2 works with various popular charting applications like OpenCPN or SeaPro that support serial or WiFi AIS connections.
Thorough Quality Assurance
Every Nauticast B2 has to pass an acceptance test covering 37 individual test to guarantee that everything works perfectly. VHF settings are optimized individually for every device to account for smallest production deviations. While the AIS standard for class A and class B demands reception of 80% of the messages at a signal level of -107dBm, the Nauticast B2 standard is 90% at -110dBm, which is only half the signal level. This leads to convincing and astonishing results in practice with the B2 capable of receiving targets at a range of more than 70 NM or 130 km.
