WatchMate XB-8000 is the world's only black box transponder with built-in smartAIS alarms. Get alerted with the external audible alarm included with the XB-8000 that sounds if it detects a risk in case of potential collisions, dragging anchor or man overboard situations. The alarm sounds even if your MFD or mobile device is switched off.
Complete Class B AIS Transponder
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.
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.
Unlike normal AIS which send and receive AIS data, WatchMate XB-8000 has smartAIS which is an active 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 falls overboard, smartAIS not only alerts you, it also provides their location so you can pick them up quickly.
It means you can focus on enjoying your time on the water, knowing smartAIS is always keeping watch in the background and is ready to alert you the moment it detects an unwanted event.
