ACR introduces new AISLINK CB1


Ft. Lauderdale-based ACR Electronics has broadened its range of maritime safety devices with the introduction of its new Class A and Class B Automatic Identification Systems (AIS) transceivers.

The AISLink CA1 Class A transceiver is a commercial standard system with the highest transmission power and the most frequent transmission of AIS information. It interacts seamlessly with navigation systems through its NMEA 0183 interface, with a large, highly visible, monochrome LCD display.

The ACR AISLink CB1 Class B transceiver is ideal for recreational boaters. Small, rugged and waterproof with low power consumption, the AISLink CB1 has an internal GPS antenna to save space. It features NMEA0183 and NMEA2000 data output, which allows for seamless interaction with navigation systems and can be placed in silent mode for privacy and security.

The AISLink CB1 retails in the U.S. for about $900; the AISLink CA1 about $2,800. For more information, visit
