The Ray260 handset and speaker are the perfect match to Raymarine’s latest generation multifunction displays and instrument systems.
Optional Transceiver Module
Step up to the Ray260 AIS and you’ll also get a built-in dual channel Automatic Identification System (AIS) receiver. The Ray260 transceiver module mounts out-of-sight freeing up precious helm space.
Engineered to be your onboard communications hub, the Ray260 has a powerful 25-watt/1-watt, commercial grade transceiver with Class D Digital Selective Calling. It also has built-in NOAA weather channels and weather alert, plus convenient dual-watch, tri-watch, and channel scanning features.
Choose the Ray260AIS model and you’ll also get a built-in dual-channel Automatic Identification System (AIS) receiver. When connected to your compatible multifunction display, radar, chart plotter or instruments, the AIS system allows you to see the names and positions of other AIS users within radio-range of your vessel, right on your chart, radar or instrument display.
Ray260 VHF Additional Features
Digital voicemail and message recording
Ray260’s new Digital Voicemail feature allows you to pre-record a voice message up to 15-seconds and automatically send it to another DSC-equipped vessel. You can also use it to record incoming voice messages or alerts up to 90-seconds long.
Ray260’s convenient position tracking feature allows you to simultaneously receive position reports from up to 5 nearby DSC equipped vessels. Their positions are automatically fed over SeaTalkng for display right on your MFD’s chart display. This feature is perfect for keeping tabs of other boats in your cruising party, monitoring vessels of interest, or for local fleet management.
For European inland waterways, the Ray260 also includes standard ATIS capability.
Ray260’s built-in loudhailer will make you heard on deck and across the harbour. The hailer packs a punch with 30-watt output and 2-way talkback too so you can easily communicate with your on-deck crew in noisy conditions. The hailer also includes an automatic foghorn with built-in signals for both power and sailing vessels.
