R550Ni Compact Intelligent Network AIS Receiver with Ethernet

SKU: COM-0012


The Comar R550Ni with Wi-Fi is an AIS receiver interfaced with an ARMv8 microcomputer. The R550Ni is designed for coastal monitoring applications and can filter and process AIS data and forward it across a network. In this way, several R550Ni units can be used to form a complete networked monitoring solution for monitoring a port and its approaches.

The unit has Wi-Fi, Ethernet & Bluetooth connectivity, as well as 2 USB-A ports and an HDMI connector for a monitor display. What makes the R550Ni different from other receivers is that it can be deployed in any AIS network using proprietary software specific to that network.

The R550Ni is designed for use by the commercial market and uses Comar’s well-proven and internationally specified high-sensitivity dual-channel parallel receiver.

The R550Ni from Comar Systems: Quite possibly the most flexible, compact and powerful AIS receiver available today.
