Raymarine Ray90 & 91 Modular VHF Radios
August 24, 2018
Raymarine’s new Ray90 and Ray91 modular VHF radios give boaters the freedom to roam and communicate from anywhere onboard using optional wireless handset stations.
The modular radios offer the convenience of having two wired handsets and three optional wireless handset stations.Both models feature a powerful, commercial-grade marine VHF radio transceiver with the latest Class-D Digital Selective Calling. They are also equipped with a built-in loudhailer and fog-signal generator that can be easily activated by adding an optional hailing horn accessory. In addition to ship-to-shore and ship-to-ship calling, the Ray90/91 offer onboard intercom communications.
The Ray 91 model also has a built-in Class B AIS receiver. Connect the Ray91 to a multifunction display and instrument network to see the position and identity of nearby AIS-equipped vessels.
The basic Ray90 or Ray91 system comes with a black-box transceiver module and a wired handset/speaker kit. The transceiver module offers connections for an optional second wired station, as well as a wireless hub. The wireless hub allows the Ray90/91 to host up to three wireless handset stations.
The wireless handsets are powered by built-in lithium ion rechargeable batteries. To recharge, place the handset back in its supplied dock; there are no charging ports, contacts, or cables. Each wireless handset even has a locator alarm.
Compliant with the latest regulations for DSC-equipped radios, both Ray90 and Ray91 have an onboard GPS receiver and a connection for an external GPS antenna. The radios can communicate with other onboard multifunction displays and instruments using industry-standard NMEA2000 or NMEA0183 networking.
