The ACR AISLink CB1 AIS is approved worldwide and is an extremely reliable transceiver which incorporates a number of convenient user features. With an internal GPS antenna, which makes an external antenna optional, users are able to save time on installation while also saving on space. Additional design features which offer further convenience include a small, rugged, and waterproof (IPx7 certified) design with low power consumption.

The AISLink CB1 also features NMEA0183 and NMEA2000 data output which allows for seamless interaction with navigation systems. The ability to place the transceiver in silent mode also provides both privacy and security as this enables users to turn off the transmission of identifying information while still seeing transmissions from other vessels with AIS.
