Vesper Marine XB-6000A Transponder (No external GPS Antenna Included)

PLEASE NOTE: NO EXTERNAL GPS ANTENNA INCLUDED IN THIS VERSION.  FOR EXTERNAL ANTENNA VERSION SEE ZVESXB6000

The new XB-6000 AIS Transponder has NMEA 2000® & 0183, USB and GPS antenna all built right in.

The world's first Class B AIS with built-in NMEA 2000 gateway converting navigation instrument data so it can be viewed on your PC or Mac. It is the most full-featured Class B AIS "black box" transponder and Vesper Marine makes the only AIS transponders that can be used as a GPS source for all NMEA 2000 networks.

This AIS transponder is a unique Class B AIS transponder allowing NMEA navigation information to be used on almost any wired device. Mounting the XB-6000 is made easy with innovative cable connection points that create neat low profile installations.

The XB-6000, XB-8000 and our WatchMate Vision are the only AIS transponders with a fast 5Hz GPS update rate providing greater detail and higher resolution plotting resulting in smooth tracking on chart plotters, MFD's and navigation software.

It's fully waterproof and has a built-in GPS antenna which eliminates the need to install an external GPS antenna in many installations.

This unique and easy to install AIS transponder combines:

  • NMEA 2000 & 0183, and USB
  • Translates and routes NMEA 2000 instrument data over USB and NMEA 0183
  • Makes all your NMEA 0183 data available over USB. Use your computer to view instrument data whether it is coming from NMEA 2000 or NMEA 0183
  • Internal high-performance parallel two channel AIS transponder
  • You can switch this transponder into Silent Mode (receive-only) from your PC, Mac or with a hard-wired switch
  • Includes 50 channel high speed 5Hz GPS receiver with built-in GPS antenna which eliminates the need to install the external GPS antenna in many installations.
  • View AIS and navigate from any AIS-capable chart plotter, multi-function display, and PC or Mac running a wide variety of 3rd party navigation software

Built-in GPS antenna

Built-in 50 channel GPS receiver (with WAAS/EGNOS) with its own internal GPS antenna eliminates the need to install an external GPS antenna in many situations.

The XB-6000 is the only AIS transponder that can be used as a source of GPS data on a NMEA 2000 network and is also the only AIS transponder with a fast 5Hz GPS navigation and update rate. This results in higher resolution and smoother tracks on your plotter or MFD, even during high speed maneuvers.

High speed 5Hz GPS navigation rate

The only AIS transponder with high speed GPS navigation resulting in smoother and more accurate tracking on attached plotters, MFD's and computer software.

Translates and routes your NMEA instrument data over USB

Translates NMEA 2000 instrument data (heading, wind, depth, speed, log, temperature) and routes to USB or NMEA 0183 for supporting plotters without NMEA 2000. All this data is combined with GPS and AIS data and sent simultaneously to computers via USB or plotters using NMEA 0183. Display and use this data in your Windows or Mac navigation software.

Fully certified NMEA 2000

Ensures easy integration with any other NMEA 2000 equipment. You can confidently use the XB-6000 with any chart plotter or multi-function display by all the major manufacturers.

High performance AIS Transponder

The XB-6000 is an AIS transponder with two channel parallel receiver and transmitter. This highly sensitive transponder means greater range and increased safety. Connects to 12 or 24 volt power supply.

Very Low Power Consumption

Designed for minimal power consumption the XB-6000 is extremely well suited for energy conscious vessels.

Fully Water Proof

Unlike most other AIS transponders, the XB-6000 is water proof so you don't have to worry about it. It's a measure of how robust and reliable it is. It is even rated IPx7 which means it is totally submersible to 1m for up to 30 mins!

USB Connection (waterproof and locking with optional cable)

The USB connection can be used to connect the XB-6000 to on-board computers. The XB-6000 provides a GPS and AIS data feed directly to computer-based navigation software. It translates selected NMEA 2000 instrument data and sends that to your computer too. An optional 5m (16') waterproof cable features a locking ring so it can't vibrate out of the back of the XB-6000.

Silent Mode Control via PC, Mac or an external switch

Allows XB-6000 to be put in Silent Mode. When in this mode, the AIS receivers and GPS continue to operate normally. The only change is transmissions are inhibited. Perfect for those times when you want privacy. Silent mode can be controlled by an external switch (not included) or via your PC or Mac.

Self Diagnosis Status Lights

Multi-color LED keeps you informed of operational status providing self diagnosis that shows warnings if AIS, GPS, or antenna are not functioning.
