Has anyone tried to get the AIS to go to silent mode?
I discovered no such switch (and according to the B&G manual you can only do it by installing a hardware switch). So i followed the cable tree from the AIS transponder to the DC switch panel, discovered the 2 wires (orange and light-green) and installed a simple switch to put the AIS in silent mode.
It works.....although i do not understand why you cant do this from a settings screen of the Zeus chartplotter....

Interesting. So you can still receive AIS, but don't transmit?

That is exactly how it works and why it is called “silent mode”

A few years ago I installed the em-trak B100 ( AIS class B  Transceiver) on Jutter. I connected a simple on/off switch to the two wires as described in the installation manual.


5.3 Switch function

When connected to the AIS transceiver following the instructions in section 3.2 an external switch

provides the ability to set the AIS transceiver into ‘silent mode’. In silent mode the transmission

of your own vessel data ceases, whilst the reception of other vessel’s AIS data continues. You

should use silent mode if you do not wish your vessel data to be received by other AIS devices.

When silent mode is active the blue indicator will be illuminated.


I admit I seldom use that silent mode.

I fitted the equivalent switch to my AIS transponder several years ago and labelled it "Stealth Mode".

i know the B&G manual clearly indicates how to do this....its just very difficult to find those 2 wires since the AIS unit has just the connector with the cable running from it. It took me some time to find these 2 wires showing up behind the DC electra panel. An easy place to connect a switch....
