Simrad Yachting has released a pair of premium multi-station black box marine radio systems.
The RS100 and RS100-B are modular VHF systems that are expandable up to eight handsets (four wired and four wireless) and four external speakers – ideal for an on-board intercom on larger boats. The wireless handsets duplicate the radio display and controls on easy-to-read screens viewable under all lighting conditions, even bright sunlight.
All primary functions are accessible from the handset with channel scan and favourites, alphanumeric keypad, clear audio, handset station naming and 60-second audio rewind. With inductive charging (cordless charging), users are only a push of a button away from staying in touch, no matter where they are on the boat.
Innovative features such as Track Buddy, so you can track the positions of up to five other radios, and Backlight Groups, to easily control multiple handset settings, help deliver a premium experience. With seamless integration across Simrad systems, plus a built-in Class-B AIS transceiver in the top-of-the-range RS100-B, the new VHF radios help make boating safer than ever before.
The Class-D DSC approved radio can make and receive DSC distress signals, including current position, and supports direct calling to other DSC-equipped radios. A record and replay feature ensures important calls are never missed. The system includes one external speaker with additional outputs for up to four speakers and one optional loudhailer/foghorn.
