Technical Features for Furuno FA70 Class B+ AIS Transponder

Product # FA-70

The Furuno AIS Transponder offers accurate information exchange that can be utilized for collision avoidance. This class-B AIS transponder receives navigation data from AIS-equipped vessels nearby that can be utilized to aid in safe navigation. Also, the FA-70 transmits its own ship’s information to the vessels around, which also aids in collision avoidance.

The FA-70 AIS transponder greatly improves the level of situational awareness even in fog, darkness, or congested waterways. The transponder flexibly integrates with various AIS compatible radar and chart plotters. Its high power (5W) and fast transmitting rate contribute to greater safety. The internal VHF splitter eliminates the need for a separate antenna.
