V-10 Informer

Ideal for use inside self contained lanterns
300 x 300

V-Track™ V10 Informer™ is an AIS information provider and remote monitoring system for use on marine aids to navigation (AtoN) and other structures. The V10 Informer is available in two options: “Type 1” is a transmit only device, and “Type 3” is a transmit and receive device that can also be used as an AIS repeater. For most applications a transmit only device provides the ideal AIS AtoN solution.

  • Features

    The V10 Informer is a compact unit housed in a rugged environmental enclosure for use on any AtoN. With a power consumption of less than 0.5 Ah/day, the V10 Informer is suitable for all solar installations, including buoys anywhere in the world.

    Tideland Signal has adopted the emerging IEC standards defining the functions and message structure contained within the AIS AtoN message. The V10 Informer is designed to comply with IEC and ITU requirements and also IALA recommendations. It isBSH approved.

    In addition, both the V10 Informer "Type 1" and "Type 3" have optional remote monitoring capabilities. It is capable of remote monitoring almost any manufacturer’s AtoN. When monitoring a Tideland Signal lantern the standard system provides: lantern status, battery voltage (loaded and unloaded) and an extra available input.

    The V10 Informer broadcasts AtoN message 21 and also allows broadcasting of weather and sea data on message 6 or 8 as a Binary Message or as a Text Message on message 12 or 14. Remote monitoring information is broadcast on message 6.

    • Programming Software -The V10 Informer is supplied with a comprehensive software application that enables you to program the unit via an RS232 interface.
    • Repeater Option - The V10 Informer "Type 3" has the capability of repeating the standard supported AIS AtoN messages for predetermined MMSI numbers. In its "Type 3" option, the V10 informer can also be controlled over the VHF data link (VDL). This is all possible through the configuration software.
    • Virtual and Synthetic AtoN - There are situations that require the authorities in charge to create either virtual or synthetic aids to navigation using their existing AIS infrastructure. For these cases, the V10 Informer is ideal as it supports both virtual and synthetic AtoN.
