    2 Installation 2.1 General The NAIS-00 is designed to be mounted on a flat surface somewhere out of sight, but easily accessible. However, to determine the best possible location, you need to consider how and where, you are going to run the cabling from the sides of the unit.

  • Page 8: Cabling

    2.3 Cabling Once you have secured your NAIS-00 to a flat surface, you will need to connect the power, SimNet/NMEA000 and RS cables supplied with the unit. The RS485 cable and switch are not supplied, but would be fitted in the same manner.

    Choose the nipples directly above the parts of the connector you want to wire into and cut off the top section to the required diameter. Pass the power and RS cables through the cradle and then through the hole in the respective nipple. Bare the ends of the cables and wire into the correct section of the connector.

    NMEA2000 (300-L model only) With the supplied cable connected to the NAIS-00, connect the other end into the supplied T-connector, then connect this into the vessels NMEA000 network. 2.5 NMEA0183-HS ( RS232 supplied This data cable is used to connect the NAIS-00 to a PC or laptop in order to configure it, and for AIS enabled PC chartplotter applications.

      The cable can be routed in the molding to drop down directly underneath, or by breaking out the thin traps, the cable can be routed out of the side of the antenna. Alternatively, the antenna may be fixed on a standard 1” threaded mounting pole (Not supplied).

    The most important factor in the performance of any AIS transceiver will be the quality and positioning of the antenna. As the range of VHF signals are governed by line of sight, the antenna should be placed as high as possible, while remaining clear of any metallic objects.

  • Page 13

    The antenna cable should terminate in a standard marine PL59 plug fitting. Connect the antenna plug to the socket on the side of the unit and screw the retaining collar down. Figure ..   To avoid possible water damage to the transceiver, it is recommended that all cables are looped to provide a drip path.

    3 Configuration 3.1 General Before the NAIS-00 can become fully functional, it will be necessary to load the following information about your vessel into the unit: • Vessels Name • Call Sign • MMSI Number • Vessels Dimensions • Vessel Type In order to enter this information, you will need to connect your NAIS-00 to your PC or laptop through the supplied RS cable.

  • Page 16

    For security reasons the MMSI of the vessel cannot be changed once programmed. Do not programme the MMSI unless you are certain you have the correct information. Please check the number entered carefully. If the MMSI programmed is incorrect the AIS transponder will need to be returned to the supplier for factory reset.

    6 flashes - noise threshold exceeded 7 flashes - voltage supply fault The “BIIT” message will remain there until the fault is cleared by the NAIS-00 circuitry, or the unit has been repaired. After the initial five seconds the LED will then go out. It will light for one second every time the unit transmits its AIS data.
