AIS Interface Box

The IF1500AIS is an interface box that enables connection of any AIS Transponder or receiver to the FR8XX2 Series radar. Note that when connecting an FA150 to any FR8XX2 series display, the IF1500AIS is NOT required! Once 38.4 KBPS AIS data is connected, and both heading and position information are available at the display, the FR8XX2 will display AIS information.

Along with the IF1500AIS, the following optional cables are required to get heading, position and the IF1500AIS interfaced to the FR8XX2 series display:

  • 2 each 000-154-028 7 Pin cables _ One for position input to the FR8XX2 Radar display, and another one to connect the IF1500 AIS to the FR8XX2 Radar display.
  • 1 each 000-154-054 _ 6 pin cable for connecting heading data into the FR8XX2 Radar display.

Lake Superior Weather Buoy Provides Valuable New Data

A new weather buoy in a remote part of Lake Superior is providing much-needed weather data to local mariners, the National Weather Service and researchers. Scientists from the Superior Watershed Partnership (SWP), Lentic Environmental Services (LES) and the University of Colorado-Boulder recently deployed the buoy on the lake one mile north of Stannard Rock Lighthouse. SWP gained ownership of the lighthouse in 2015. Because the light was built on a large reef in a remote part of the lake, it is one of the most popular trout fishing and charter boat destinations on the Great Lakes. It has also been the location of a NOAA weather station since 1984 and a Great Lakes Evaporation Network monitoring site since 2008.

Nonprofit kick-starts water data gathering in Nepal Valley

For the first time, citizens of the Kathmandu Valley in Nepal have free access to local water data. The data is the result of a water quality monitoring pilot project started by the California-based nonprofit SmartPhones4Water (S4W). SmartPhones4Water, an idea developed by Ph.D. student Jeff Davids and the late Dr. Peter-Jules van Overloop from Delft University of Technology (Netherlands), was started in California in 2014. The goal of the organization is to leverage smartphone technology to gather water data in countries where such data is scarce. The method is simple: a network of local citizens use their smartphones to capture and upload the data to an online server and database.
