Description

Details

WatchMate XB-8000 is a Class B AIS transponder with a two channel parallel receiver and transmitter. It transmits your vessel position and details and receives the same kind of information from other vessels with AIS transponders.

It connects to your other instruments, tablets or smart phones via WiFi, USB, or NMEA0183 or NMEA2000. If you are using the Navionics app with a phone or tablet, it will overlay AIS targets on  the chart.

The AIS data is sent every few seconds and includes information such as course, speed, latitude, longitude, and heading. Static information about the vessel is sent every few minutes and includes the name, type of vessel, length, beam, draft, etc.
smartAIS features

Unlike normal AIS which send and receive AIS data, WatchMate XB-8000 has smartAIS which is an active safety system with smart alarm logic that alerts you rapidly to potential dangers.

smartAIS includes these three powerful features:

  • Safety Underway. This alerts you when smartAIS detects a potential collision.
  • Safety at Anchor. If your anchor drags, smartAIS will let you know immediately.
  • Safety for your Crew. If someone has gone overboard, smartAIS not only alerts you, it also provides their location so you can pick them up quickly.

It means you can focus on sailing your vessel, knowing smartAIS is always keeping watch in the background and is ready to alert you the moment it detects a hazard or unwanted event.

We cannot predict the cost to ship hazardous materials outside of UK. If your purchase includes a gas inflating lifejacket we can send it overseas only by first removing the gas bottle.

We cannot send other hazardous goods including liferafts, paint and antifouling overseas without first getting a special delivery quotation. After all these hurdles we put up, please do not be alarmed - if you need a liferaft delivered to the Baltic, the Mediterranean, the Caribbean, simply contact us for a quote. You can be confident our delivered price will still be better than local sourcing.
