AIS TESTER

 

AIS Tester is a test device operating on AIS1 (ch87B), AIS2(ch88B) and DSC(ch70) frequencies. The tester is designed under corresponding standards and recommendations as a tool of operation and installation tests of AIS unit (Automatic Identification System). The tests’ volume comply with “Guidelines on annual testing of the AIS unit MSC.1/Circ.1252”.

 

Tester allows to make measurements both through the cable and broadcast by means of issued antenna.

The measurement results can be viewed on LCD display or can be saved in tester’s nonvolatile memory. Tester allows to save tow independent sessions of test/measurements to be saved lately on PC by means of software.

 

Tester does not use a GPS for synchronization. A proprietary TDMA slot-synchronizing algorithm is used which does not require a GPS 1 pps. It uses RATDMA for generating VDL and interrogation messages. A Pilot Plug evaluation function and NMEA/RS422 terminal display of external sensor inputs is provided.

The input signal displaying on LCD from external sensors through the RS-422 port provides the control of “Pilot plug”.
