My easyTRX2/S shows the red “Error”-LED. What does that mean?

This can caused by a lot and you cannot say it easy. To solve the problem please connect by USB to your PC and open the Programming-Tool.

Under the page “Diagnostic” you can see the error.

 

VSWR exceeds limit:
The easyTRX2 / S measures after every transmission how much power was sent to your antenna(Forward power) system and how much of it comes back(Reverse power). The easyTRX2 / S use these values and calculated if your antenna is good or bad. An error is reported when the “Forward TX power” no longer is worth at least 3 times higher than the “TX reverse power”. You can find these values in our Programming-Tool.

If this happens, please check your antenna system and whether all adapters and connectors are properly connected.
A defect of the easyTRX2/S you can find out with the following steps:
1. Make a note of “TX power forward” and “reverse TX Power” if your unit is sent with attached antenna.
2. Now disconnect the antenna and wait for 6 minutes. If the values differ only low (about 30), so please contact our technical support.

My easyTRX will not send out its position. I get position from everybody else, so it is reciving fine, but not transmitting. For the test I have connected a Raymarine C70 with one easyTRX and a C120 with another easyTRX.

The first thing to check is if you set the dimensions A, B, C, D in the easyTRX software. Some plotters need that to show the ship on screen.There could be some more reason:
The Raymarine C70 and C120 have an old software that is not able to decode Class B AIS (pleasure boats) messages. They only show Class A AIS (commercial vessels).Please do an update to version 4.29. This is the software which is able to display Class B AIS!
When you turn on the easyTRX and the green light is on (yellow, red and blue LED must be off!), then you have to wait up to 3-4 min until the easyTRX transmits!

The “Channel A/B” LED is flashing but there are no AIS-targets on my screen.

FAQ: easyAIS-IS >>>

Überprüfen Sie, ob Sie das USB-Kabel bzw. Power/Daten-Kabel richtig am PC/Plotter angebracht haben. Dies können Sie mit dem Standard Windowsprogramm “Hyperterminal” testen. Dieses finden Sie unter Start/Programme/Zubehör/Kommunikation/Hyperterminal Wählen Sie dort den richtigen Port aus an dem Sie den easyAIS-IS angeschlossen haben. Außerdem müssen folgende Einstellungen vornehmen: Bits pro Sekunde: 38400; Datenbits: 8; Parität: keine; Stoppbits: 1; Flusssteuerung: Hardware; bestätigen Sie mit okay. Sie sollten im Fenster nun NMEA-Daten sehen wie folgt: !AIVDM,1,1,,A,13u?etPv2;0n:dDPwUM1U1Cb069D,0*24 Sie haben alles richtig gemacht.
