New AIS Receiver QK-A027 with SeaTalk* Converter

Release date 31st October

QK-A027 AIS Receiver

with GPS, WiFi, NMEA out and SeaTalk in

 

Planned for release on October 31st, a new addition to the Marine Electronics Family.

A multi-functional little AIS engine it’s frankly, a game changer. It sits at the heart and hub of the whole navigation system as a single-unit powerhouse.

Building on the success of the previous models our new AIS Receiver adds SeaTalk capability to the already impressive suite of input options on the QK-A026 and is powered from the SeaTalk interface to provide a cleaner signal which will improve range and sensitivity.

Another innovation is simultaneous WiFi, NMEA and USB output. Considerably improving on versatility and flexibility.

The integral WiFi can connect up to seven devices and in response to customer feedback the GPS is now optional.

All this functionality comes in our trademark compact aluminium enclosure with the usual 1 year guarantee and is available exclusively to our Distributors at the same ridiculously low price as the QK-A026 until Jan 2018.

Full specification and instruction documents are on the website now and for further information please email me, kit@quark-elec.com.

Available until 1st Jan 2018 exclusively to Distributors

* SeaTalkTM is the proprietary protocol used by Raymarine Marine Electronics

Another super review for QK-A026

A great review from Erkki on Tindie

Very, very good all in one GPS + AIS receiver!

This little box contains all you can wish for, real dual channel AIS receiver,
a really good GPS receiver, all sorts of connectivity, from old school RS232
to USB and WIFI !
So you can connect it to everything very easily.
Power is easy just connect it to a USB port and all the fun wakes up very fast.
And all this for a very good price !
I will prolly order one extra as backup :-)If you are even remotely interested in AIS and /or GPS, get one !
it doesn’t get easier or cheaper than this.

Thanks Erkki! We’re very glad you like it!

Which Application should I use with my Quark-Elec AIS Receiver?

A question we get asked a lot!  There are an ever increasing number of Apps out there now, some good, some….less so.  We could go out and test every single one, but then we wouldn’t have time to do the R&D which drives our products forward.  We love the R&D part of our job, so we’ve put together a shortlist of applications which we know work and that cover most of the OS requirements out there. As you probably know by now, we like to encourage feedback and we love that our customers like to help each other out once in a while, so if you are using an app that isn’t listed here and you think it’s good, please give it a quick write up in the comments section.  Or drop me an email and point me in the right direction!

Erratum: OpenCPN does NOT have an iOS version.
