AST 200

 
Class B AIS VHF Antenna splitter
The AST 100 Class B AIS VHF Antenna splitter is designed to simplify installation of the CSB 200 Class B Automatic Identification Transponder when its not possible or convenient to fit an additional antenna.


The splitter unit removes the need for a separate VHF antenna, allowing a single antenna to be shared with a VHF radio. The VHF antenna splitter has been specifically designed for use with two transmitting devices (VHF radio and AIS transponder) and has the added capability of an additional FM radio connection.

  • Simple and quick to install, using a single VHF antenna for both AIS and VHF operation saves installation cost and time.
  • Failsafe operation ensures priority to VHF voice & DSC radio operation, even if the splitter power supply fails.
  • Additional output available for FM radio antenna connection.
  • Simple LED indicators show when VHF voice radio or AIS is transmitting or receiving.
  • Includes RF leads for connection with AIS transponder, VHF radio, and a power lead.
  • Operation from 12/24 VDC
