The Ray 260 is Raymarine’s new premier VHF radio, designed to complement and enhance the latest generation of Raymarine multifunction displays (MFDs) and instruments. The new addition to Raymarine’s range features a modular design with a remotely mounted Class D Digital Selective Calling (DSC) black-box transceiver, remote speaker receiver and a full function handset.

The rugged and ergonomic Ray260 handset is designed with an extra-large LCD and dedicated soft keys for easy control of features and functions. The powerful, remote-mounted speaker ensures VHF traffic is heard loud and clear. The remote speaker’s design matches Raymarine instruments and multifunction displays for a clean and integrated helm appearance and there is also the option of an active speaker with a dedicated volume control.

Flexible and expandable, the Ray260 VHF is able to support three remote stations and has an integral 30-Watt loudhailer and fog horn. New features include position tracking which allows up to five position reports to be received at any one time from DSC equipped vessels nearby. Vessel positions can then be overlaid on a Raymarine MFD chart display, enabling simple monitoring of vessels of interest or cruising groups; commercial users can keep track of their loc al fleet. Another new feature is Digital Voicemail which allows a 15 second voice message to be pre-recorded and sent automatically to another DSC-equipped vessel. It can also be used to record incoming voice messages or alerts of up to 90-seconds in length.

The Ray260AIS version has all the features of Ray260 plus an internal dual channel Automatic Identification System (AIS) receiver. The Ray260AIS is easily networked to an MFD giving improved situational awareness in both chart and radar applications with AIS target overlays. Both the Ray260 and Ray260 AIS have NMEA200 networking capability via Raymarine’s SeaTalkng cabling system.

Ray260 VHF pricing starts from €775.00/£595.00 ex tax

Available from April 2013.
