Digital Yacht AIT2000 Class B Transponder With WLN10SM Bundle
Digital Yacht AIT2000 Class B Transponder
The AIT2000 uses the latest AIS Transponder technology to squeeze more performance and interfacing options in to a housing that is half the size of our previous generation transponder.
This ultra-compact Class B Transponder has three outputs; NMEA 0183, NMEA 2000 and USB connection, allowing it to work with every AIS compatible chart plotter or software package on the market today. Featuring a remote silence button option, two NMEA 0183 Inputs and Outputs, four status LEDs and rugged vibration-proof mounting brackets, the AIT2000 is the third generation of Digital Yacht AIS transponder and replaces the very popular AIT1000.
Configuration of your vessel’s fixed data, such as MMSI, call sign, boat name, dimensions etc. is made easy with the included Windows and Mac compatible proAIS2 software. Once configured, the unit will provide AIS data to a PC or Mac running suitable navigation software or a dedicated chart plotter, such as the latest Garmin, Raymarine, Navico, Standard Horizon and Furuno units.
As well as transmitting your own vessel’s position so that other AIS equipped vessels know where you are, the AIT2000, when connected to an existing VHF antenna (via a splitter) or dedicated AIS antenna, will receive all AIS targets within range of your boat – typically up to 30NM
With two industry standard NMEA 0183 outputs, our own N2Net connector for plugging in to an NMEA 2000 network and a simple plug and play USB connection to a PC, the AIT2000 is the perfect AIS transponder solution for all light marine vessels up to 300 tons.

NOTE - AIS target range, like VHF range is dependent upon a number of installation factors such as; antenna gain, antenna height and size of ground plane. Ranges in excess of 20 miles should be possible if all of these factors are perfect.
Digital Yacht WLN10 Smart NMEA to WiFi Gateway
Digital Yacht’s new WLN10 Smart NMEA to WiFi gateway takes iPad and tablet integration afloat even further with the ability to connect to existing on board GPS, AIS and instrument systems and transfer data wirelessly to an iPad or tablet – allowing compatible apps to display and compute with real time information. The WLN10 creates a secure, password protected Wi-Fi network on board to footprint the boat with data.
When connected to, for example, an AIS system, real time AIS target positions and identity data will be displayed on detailed electronic charting through compatible apps including NavLink, TimeZero, iAIS, iSailor, Seapilot and hundreds more. The tablet becomes a full function navigation display.
This new version of the WLN10 can now be programmed through its simple browser interface for NMEA 0183 data at 4800 or 38400 baud as well as allowing multiple devices to connect so you can be using a PC at the chart table with an iPad on deck. It’s also bidirectional so apps can control an autopilot if this function is enabled. Next gen nav from Digital Yacht.
FAQ'sDo I need an internet connection to use the WLN10 Smart?
No internet connection is required. Many consumers get confused and automatically associate Wi-Fi with internet. The WLN10 Smart creates a Wi-Fi network and the local iPad or tablet users searches for this in the same way they search for a Wi-Fi hotspot. Once connected, NMEA data is sent over the local link created on board the boat.
How many devices can connect?
Up to 7 devices can connect using UDP. TCP/IP is a one to one connection format. PCs, MACs, Android and iOS are all compatible.
Where can I find compatible apps?
We keep up to date reviews on our news blog at www.digitalyacht.net – search on iOS or Android. Popular apps include iRegatta, iNavX, NMEA Remote, iAIS, NavLink, iSailor, SeaPilot, Weather 4D, MaxSea TimeZero, AIS View and literally 100s more
What is the difference between the WLN10 Smart and the old WLN10?
It’s a complete new chipset with improved performance, fully opto-isolated input and outputs, web interface for programming SSID, passwords and baud rate to make stocking and installing easier. It is also competitively priced.
Are there other models in the series?
The new WLN30 will be available shortly with 3 inputs for more complex systems. Our SeaTalk to NMEA interface can also be used to offer SeaTalk connectivity and we will shortly release a NMEA 2000 adaptor
I already have a Wi-Fi router on board – can I connect the WLN10 Smart to an existing network?
Yes! You can program this through the web interface so you just have one Wi-Fi network on board with the WLN10 Smart linked directly to that as a client. This works well with Furuno WiFi radar installations
