B&G VHF Radio V100
B&G, a world leader in onboard navigation and instrumentation, announced the launch of its premium ‘black box’ multi-station marine radio systems – the VHF V100 series.
These systems are expandable and customizable, suitable for any type of boat and for all communication needs on the water.
Featuring a bright, clear display with adjustable backlight, night mode and alphanumeric keypad, the V100 series has been designed to complement B & G’s product range, providing a fully integrated look and feel to the boat system.
The VHF V100 series is a premium multi-station black box VHF DSC radio, designed for larger vessels, equipped with integrated systems. Thanks to a hidden processor unit and options with wireless receivers equipped with charging stations, the system provides a clean setup, giving users the freedom of a portable VHF available anywhere on board.
Full customization and integration
The modular system design includes an integrated GPS receiver, configuration options for up to 4 wired and 4 wireless receivers.
Additional options include megaphone and siren, for up to 4 configurable external speakers, and silent AIS switching, usable as intercom and VHF.
Thanks to complete system integration, NMEA 2000® communications create the highest level of flexibility. The receiver backlight can be grouped into the system, while NMEA 0183 options allow integration with other third-party systems.
Full visibility with AIS integrated with the V100-B
The VHF V100-B is also equipped with a Class B AIS receiver and transmitter, to allow users to see and be seen by other vessels equipped with AIS equipment. The integrated AIS receiver is a valuable aid to avoid collisions on busy channels and ports. Monitor the position of all nearby AIS vessels, providing real-time information in all weather conditions, day and night. AIS information can be viewed directly on the radio screen or via a compatible multifunction device, such as an overlay on a map or radar screen.
Designed to ensure clear communications
The Class D approved DSC radio can generate and receive DSC distress signals, including your current position, and supports direct calls to other DSC-capable radios. The Dual Watch feature allows you to monitor current and emergency channels. The record and playback function ensures that you never miss important calls.
The system includes an external speaker with additional outputs for up to four speakers and an optional horn / fog speaker. On board, the system can also be used as an intercom system, ensuring easy communication with the crew – ideal for large ships or in bad weather conditions.
“Our new VHF systems offer boaters better and flexible communications designed specifically for them,” said Simon Conder, B & G’s global brand director. “The V100 and V100-B systems are expandable and customizable and offer unique features, such as a 60-second audio rewind that allows the user to repeat an urgent or confusing transmission and Track Buddy, with which it is possible to monitor the position of up to 5 extra glasses for your VHF’s MMSI number, while the high-end V100-B model comes with a built-in Class B AIS transceiver, so you can see and be seen on the go. ”
