ACR Intros Class B AIS Transcievers

Fort Lauderdale, FL., May 26, 2015 – ACR Electronics, Inc. announces the availability of their new Class B Automatic Identification Systems (AIS) for recreational and commercial boaters.


A longtime manufacturer of marine safety electronics, ACR adds AIS marine navigation transceivers to its product line. AIS utilizes VHF digital transmissions to facilitate the passing of navigational data between any boaters who have an AIS transceiver installed on board, ultimately increasing navigational safety.

The AISLink CB1 is a Class B transceiver that has been certified around the world to the latest AIS regulations. This compact unit will send and receive wireless navigational data to and from nearby boats and vessels with data that includes the vessel’s name, position, course or speed over ground, heading, and rate of turn. The easy to operate AISLink facilitates faster communication and navigational planning especially when boats or vessels are hidden or obstructed from radar’s reach. The new AISLink CB1 is competitively priced, easy to install, and interacts seamlessly with navigation systems through its NMEA 0183 and 2000 interfaces.

A safe day on the water is always the priority. Adding ACR’s AISLink CB1 transceiver can provide boaters globally with the necessary data designed to simplify navigation.
