GMDSS MF/HF Marine Transceiver with Class A DSC
The new GM800 MF/HF Transceiver is designed for Class A DSC operation and provides a complete GMDSS MF/HF communication system for Commercial SOLAS regulated vessels. The GM800 meets MED, “wheel mark” requirements for European merchant ships.
Meets MED “Wheel Mark” Requirements
The GM800 meets the Marine Equipment Directive on European marine equipment requirements and has passed rigorous environmental testing and quality assurance processes. The GM800 is designed to provide reliable operation and long-lasting durability under harsh maritime environments. The front panel of the GM800 has IPX7 protection (1 m depth of water for 30 minutes), and the rear panel has corrosion resistant coating.
Meets ITU-R M.493-13 DSC
The built-in DSC provides automated distress and safety communication. The dedicated DSC watch-keeping receiver continuously scans the six distress channels in rotation. A total of 100 MMSI members for DSC calls can be stored with a 10-character ID name. The DSC Multitask function shows up to seven DSC procedures. The GM800 is also capable of sending a distress relay call.
4.3 inch Wide Viewing Angle Colour TFT LCD
The 4.3-inch colour TFT LCD provides almost 180-degree wide viewing angle and displays high-resolution characters and function icons. Even when the radio is installed to the instrument panel, the operator can clearly recognise the display information from various viewing angles. The night mode display ensures good readability in low light conditions.
Intuitive User Interface
A combination of the directional keypad and soft keys provides simple operation. Most used functions are assigned to soft keys (at the bottom of the display) for quick one push function access. Clearly labelled keypad provides straightforward entry.
Space Saving, Remote Head
The GM800 MF/HF Transceiver has been designed to be fitted comfortably on any commercial bridge and blend in with other instrumentation. The GM800 features a waterproof remote head that can be neatly installed on a bridge while the ‘black box’ controller discretely mounts out of the way and out of sight.
Provides Loud, Clear Audio
By adopting a new waterproof paper speaker cone, the speaker provides superior sound quality and a flat frequency response with a wide frequency range.
