    Locator based on AIS technologies.


Locator based on AIS technologies

This device enable boaters and fishermen to relocate gear/ buoys/ equipment. Especially in bad weather it can be difficult to find any equipment left at sea.

Creating waypoints on chart plotters is not sufficient because it’s only a “one time” information. A more precisely information is necessary.

How it works

  • The “easy POS’N’Hook AIS locator will show the exact position even when waves and currents changed the position of the marked equipment.
  • The system works on a 72 channel receiver, reporting the updated position all 3 minutes (other intervals are possible by changes in the software).
  • Reporting the position, POS’N’Hook is realized via VHF –similar to AIS… but on special customized frequencies.
  • Individual information like the number of a buoy or name can be programmed.
  • When the vessel is in transmitting range of the transmitting POS’N’Hook device, the real time position will be showed at the AIS receiver on the bridge.
  • All datas, and settings of the device can be checked by the TEST button before starting.
  • Using that system only the located gear/ buoys belonging to that vessel will show up.
  • To run that System:
    • For each gear / buoy a POS’N’Hook devise
    • The charging station with intelligent charging management to guaranty longest lifespan of batteries
    • An AIS receiver from Weatherdock easyRX25 for customized VHF frequencies
