How can I share the data of my existing AIS receiver station?

There are several ways to do so depending on the output port of your receiver.

Serial:

  • You link your AIS receiver with a serial cable to the serial port of your PC (or you are using a serial-to-USB-converter). On your PC you have to install a special software that forwards the AIS data to FleetMon, e.g. NMEA Router, Ship Plotter or AIS Dispatcher. It requires that your PC is running non-stop.

    OR

  • You link your AIS receiver with a serial cable to a serial-to-IP-converter and connect the converter to your internet connection with the network cable. The converter must be configured for sending the AIS data to FleetMon.com. In this case, you don't need a PC and software.

USB (e.g. dAISy AIS receiver):

  • You can directly connect it to the USB port of your PC. On your PC you have to install a special software that forwards the AIS data to FleetMon, e.g. NMEA Router, Ship Plotter or AIS Dispatcher. It requires that your PC is running non-stop.

Ethernet:

  • There are several devices with different configuration options. It is not possible to give a general manual for this case. Please contact our support team by naming the device and you will get individual help.
