SX.588 Combo AIS/activeGPS antenna
Perfect for AIS applications, the
SX.588 'Combo' antenna saves installation time and cost
by providing both the VHF and GPS antennas in one very
neat package with a single 'figure8' style cable.
Designed specifically for use with our SeaTraceR Class B
Transponder, and with our SeaVieweR UPGRADEABLE Dual
Channel AIS/GPS Receiver.
SX.272 Antenna Splitter
And if you want to use an existing
VHF antenna, 'shared' between your VHF radio and an
AIS Transponder, you must use an active antenna splitter
that is fast enough to respond to the AIS transmissions
without corrupting the data. The SX.272 from SevenStar
has been tested and approved for such use.
that other antenna splitters available may be fine for
use with AIS RECEIVERS, but should not be used with AIS
Transponders/Transceivers without extensive testing.
S.701B Replacement Lower Assembly/Battery Pack
The battery pack on the S.701
SevenStar SART should be changed every 5 years, or if
the unit has been accidentally damaged or activated (a
brief period is allowed periodically for annual
testing.) The S.701 was the first SART that can be
shipped as non-hazardous goods, and the replacement pack
is naturally also non-hazardous. This greatly reduces
the cost and paperwork for shipping these items.
The S.701B replacement battery pack
kit is available from our distributors, and is capable
of being fitted by a competent service engineer with
only a 2.5mm hex driver. The kit includes a new gasket,
screw and O-ring, as shown in the photo.
The S.701 from SevenStar is also
unique in that the SART electronics remain totally
sealed during battery pack removal and refitting - it is
impossible to damage or de-tune the electronics, or
allow the accidental ingress of moisture.
