With this slim Simrad VHF marine radio system with detachable hand microphone, DSC Class D functionality and integrated GPS, you'll always be safe on the water. Thanks to the integrated Class B AIS, you can see AIS-equipped vessels in the vicinity or, if you select the transceiver, be seen by them. You can also add up to two optional wireless handsets to stay connected from anywhere on board.
Optimum visibility thanks to integrated AIS
The Simrad RS40-B includes a Class B AIS transceiver that not only receives AIS targets, but also transmits the position of your boat to AIS-equipped vessels in the vicinity. This allows others to see your boat in all conditions, day or night. An integrated AIS receiver monitors the position of other AIS vessels to proactively prevent collisions in crowded ports and on busy waterways. AIS information can be displayed on the radio's built-in screen or via a compatible multifunction display on the map or radar screen.
Removable handheld microphone
The detachable hand microphone of the Simrad RS40-B can be connected to the front or rear of the radio. The optional extension cable allows the radio and microphone to be mounted separately. This provides a simple and cost-effective solution for any installation location and without tangled cables. For example, the Simrad RS40-B can be mounted above the head without hanging cables, while the microphone is connected to a power strip at the bottom of the control panel.
Expandable with wireless handsets
Add an optional Simrad HS40 wireless handset to take your radio anywhere on board. Each handset duplicates the display and controls of your radio, allowing remote access to all key functions. Up to two handsets can be connected to a single Simrad RS40-B. If several handsets are connected, the radio will also act as an on-board intercom.
