AIS Tester M1 is a professional equipment for surveyors providing mandatory annual testing of the Class A and Class B AIS mobile and base stations, AtoN and AIS-SARTs in accordance with the requirements of IMO and SOLAS. The device complies with the IMO circular letter “Guidelines on annual testing of the AIS unit MSC.1/Circ.1252”.

AIS Tester M1
Product Overview

TEST AIS CLASS A and B, AIS-SARTs and AtoNs

The AIS Tester M1 is a globally-known test tool staying on service for radio surveys for more than 10 years and has proven its reliability.

It is designed to perform annual surveys and shore-based maintenance in accordance with IMO requirements concerning AIS testing (IMO circular letter “Guidelines on annual testing of the AIS unit MSC.1/Circ.1252”). AIS Tester allows to check any AIS station, proving its functional parameters meet appropriate IMO standards.

The tester is a world’s standard of industry and is constantly improving. Our engineers regularly release firmware and software upgrades for the equipment that undoubtedly supports the tool on the edge of technologies.

Product Features

AIS Tester is a user-friendly and easy to use test device.

AIS Tester Allows To:

  • Measure AIS frequencies (on channels 1, 2);
  • Measure or estimate the AIS transmitted power (on channels 1, 2);
  • Receive and decode the AIS messages;
  • Send the data to AIS stations;
  • Pass the DSC polling information (channel 70);
  • Check AIS answer to so called “virtual vessel”;
  • Simulate NMEA data transmissions;
  • Simulate AIS data transmissions, such as ship’s name, position, length, course, speed, power and beam;
  • Transmit and receive the DSC messages of different types for VHF stations;
  • Check the AIS-SART operation facilities;
  • Receive the data from pilot plug or external sensors.

Features:

  • Any AIS Class A and Class B station are supported
  • Carrier frequency measurement in range of 156-162MHz within the accuracy ± 99Hz
  • Pilot plug and external sensors support
  • Internal database of received data with possibility to save up to 10 test results
  • Easy connection to PC, laptop, notebook to process the stored data
  • Windows and Mac OS user friendly desktop application for database storage and review, process and test reports printout
  • Long life batteries, easy to replace
  • Easy recalibration without returning back to factory
  • 2 years warranty

All the test procedures are provided in accordance with international standards, such as:

  • The circular letter MSC.1/Circ.1252 (for AIS stations);

All data can be viewed on the tester’s LCD, saved or transmitted to PC for report creation.

The tester power supply is performed by 4 AA batteries 1.5V, as well as by external DC source with voltage 4.5…7V and load current no less than 500mA.

Technical Specification:

  • AIS operational frequencies are: channel 1    –  161,975 MHz ; channel 2   –  162,025 MHz;
  • DSC operational frequency channel 70 – 156,525 MHz;
  • Setting accuracy of output frequency – no less than ±1ppm;
  • Output power of AIS channel 1 and 2 and channel 70 DSC not less than (-7) dBm or 100 mW;
  • AIS modulation – FM-GMSK;
  • AIS channel band rate – 9600 Baud;
  • DSC channel band rate – 1200 Baud;
  • Tester provides carrier frequency measurement in range of 156-162MHz within the accuracy  ± 99 Hz;
  • Input\Output resistance – (50 ± 1.5) Ohm.

Approximate continuous operation time using the battery – about 5 hours.

The tester power supply is performed by 4 AA batteries 1,5V, as well as by external DC source with voltage 4,5…7V and load current no less than 500 mA.

TESTER displays internal battery voltage with accuracy ± 5%.

The tester is designed to operate at the temperature range from +5С to +45С  and relative air humidity should be no more than 95%, which is determined by used LCD.
