R500Ni Intelligent Network AIS Receiver with Wi-Fi

SKU: COM-0010


The R500Ni with WiFi is an AIS receiver interfaced with an ARMv8 microcomputer. The R500Ni is designed for coastal monitoring applications and can filter and process AIS data and forward it across a network. In this way, several R500Ni units can be used to form a complete networked monitoring solution for monitoring a port and its approaches.

The unit has WiFi and Ethernet connectivity, 4 USB ports, and an HDMI connector for a monitor display. What makes the R500Ni different from other receivers because it can be deployed in any AIS network using proprietary software specific to that network and is shipped ‘bare bones’.

The R500Ni is designed for use by the commercial market and uses Comar’s well-proven and internationally specified high-sensitivity dual channel parallel receiver, and it is quite possibly the most flexible and powerful AIS receiver available on the market.

Note: This product may also be known as the SLR350Ni
