Introducing the A015-RX Active AIS-VHF Antenna Splitter

We are proud to introduce our newest addition to our AIS range,

The A015-RX, Active AIS-VHF antenna:

  • Allows one VHF antenna to be shared between VHF and AIS devices:
    • VHF radio (reception and transmission)
    • AIS receiver and (reception)
    • AM/FM radio (reception)

The A015-RX is an active splitter. This means that unlike many splitters that cause reception and transmission signal loss, active splitters actually provide a signal gain. The A015-RX’s built-in pre-amplifier amplifies the AIS, VHF, AM/FM signals, thereby increasing the VHF radio range and AIS receiver reception and sensitivity.

The A015-RX key features include:

  • VHF/AIS Gain (typically 12dB) maximizes VHF radio and AIS receivers’ range
  • Straight forward connection (no configuration required)
  • Low power consumption.
  • VHF failsafe function – in the unlikely case of Splitter power loss or failure, the VHF radio remains functional, as VHF radio has full priority.

 

The A015-RX has five connections:

  • Power cable: connect to 12V-24V DC power
  • VHF Antenna: SO239 connector for VHF antenna
  • VHF radio: SO239 connector for VHF radio
  • AIS: BNC connector for the output of the AIS signal
  • FM/AM: BNC connector for the output of the FM/AM radio signal
