ICOM MXA-5000 Black Box AIS Receiver
Increase Your Situational Awareness in Congested Areas
The MXA-5000 receives both Ch. 87B (161.975MHz) and Ch. 88B (162.025MHz) simultaneously. This dual channel receiver makes the MXA-5000 more flexible for obtaining AIS information from AIS transponders that operate on only one channel. In addition, the MXA-5000 also receives both Class A and Class B AIS data.
The MXA-5000 has two data outputs. One is RS-422 for connection with equipment such as a marine radar or GPS chart plotter. Equipments that accepts the VDM sentence format will show the AIS data on the display. The second is RS-232C for a PC connection. When using with AIS plotter software (not supplied by Icom), the MXA-5000 allows you to monitor other vessel traffic on your PC.
The MXA-5000 can be installed between a VHF antenna and a VHF radio. While receiving a VHF radio signal, the MXA-5000 receives AIS data. When you transmit from the connected VHF radio, the Tx signal bypasses the MXA-5000 to protect the internal circuit.
