How can I reset my MMSI number?

Following instruction is only valid for our easyTRX2 and easyTRX2S units and its derivate!

To reset your unit on your own is not allowed by law.
Only the manufacturer or distributor is allowed to do that.
Therefore we need following to do:

  1. Download the Teamviewer from here
    a. with this tool we will afterwards logon your PC to reset the easyTRX2.
    b. You don´t need to install the software. You also can start it only when downloaded it.
    c. It is important that you see following window with „your ID” and the “password”:
      
    You need this ID and password later.
    d. Download the latest easyTRX2 Programming tool (Windows only= from here:
         Link
    e. If you have a older easyTRX 1. Generation #A023, please use following Programming-Tool.
         Link
    f. Unzip the ZIP-File and start installation.
  2. Connect your TRX2/TRX2S to power supply of 12/24V and USB to a free slot of your Windows PC.
    a. If your PC knows your USB driver you can go ahead with 4)
    b. If windows makes troubles recognize your USB driver you can download it from here (use Windows version again).
         Link
    c. Connecting older version of easyTRX 1. Generation #A023:
    i. Use a USB to RS234 adaptor and connect the black SUB D 9 socket to it on the PC.
  3. Start the Programming tool from 2)
    a. Select COM port, normally it is the highest number (e.g. COM8)
    b. If you have a older easyTRX 1. Generation #A023, just hit the “Connect” button, it will search automatically for your unit.
    c. Press “Connect”, if you are connected successfully you can see a green bar with “connected”.
  4. Start Teamviewer Tool
    a. Send us ID and password by mail or give us a call (+49 911 376638-30) which would be faster.
  5. We will logon your PC then (please close all other programs) and make a factory reset of the unit.
  6.  Afterwards you can program your unit by yourself again
    a. Also here it means: programming the MMSI number is only possible once.
    If you enter it wrong we need to make the factory reset again.

The Police told me that my AIS signal is not complete. They saw my MMSI number, but they received an “error R45”. However the easyTRX worked fine. Other sailors saw my data correctly. What happened here?

The error originates from the coast guard’s software.The standard of AIS Class B for pleasure boats has been realized in 2006. We know that some older AIS Class A ships have problems with the Class B transmissions. It is only a matter of time until the older Class A update their software. If the coast guards ask you again about that problem, you can show them the certifications number which you can find in the manual. It is the number BSH / 46162 / 4320638 / 07 and says that the unit is legal.

Do I need a new MMSI for my easyTRX?

If you want to operate a dsc-radio station or an AIS-transponder easyTRX on a boat, you need a registration for this radio-station. You get the registration from the federal network agency. The federal network agency will allocate your radio-station a MMSI-number, which you program into the easyTRX. If you already have a MMSI and additional you want to operate an easyTRX, you must send a notification of change to the federal network agency. You program your existing MMSI into the easyTRX.-Under this link you get more information: Bundesnetzagentur Aussenstelle Hamburg Sachsenstr. 12 und 14 20097 Hamburg Tel.: 040 23655-0 Fax: 040 23655-182 E-Mail: seefunk@bnetza.de http://www.bundesnetzagentur.de

I want to operate the TRX with a Raymarine C60 multi-function-display. For that I want to use the NMEA interface at which the GPS datas are supplied at the moment. (easyTRX in use with an chartplotter, which has only one NMEA input (most of the Raymarine devices).

The easyTRX is a class B CS AIS transceiver. The easyTRX is conform to the current class B norms and certified by the BSH. All by the BSH certified transceivers are mostly similar.The reason for this is, because they have to fulfil the norms, which are very detailed and strict. The norms are defining nearly everything beginning form the type of the case over EMV – values, power supply, synchronisation of the AIS radio network, channel access, channel state, displays, procedure types, and actions for the suppression of neighbour-channels, broadcasting power until the shoe-size oft he user.

This is why the devices are only different in the design, the graphical user-interface for programming the MMSI and the basic applications for displaying AIS. Different are mostly the flexible factors like the detail grade of the manual, the completeness of the connection cables, and necessary accessory and also the availability of useful accessory devices splitters with class B capability and combined VHF/GPS antennas. Also the service of the manufacturer which ours is the best one! All class B transceiver have in common, that they need an own GPS. This is necessary because the normally existing GPS antennas deliver NMEA GPS data. This NMEA data are generally not exactly enough in reference to their time-base. A typical class B AIS telegram takes 25ms. Within 1 ms the class B transceiver hast o deliver his „beam“. In order that sent telegrams are not overlapping, every sender has to keep an exact for sending. The date for sending has to be more accurate as the telegram. The date of sending is determined at ca. 100µs by the class B sender. This is only possible, when the sender gets the raw data from the GPS antenna and not NMEA data, which are only accurate to 1/10 s. This is the reason.

You cannot put both, the easyTRX with a data rate of 38400 Baud and the GPS NMEA data with 4800 Baud, to one interface of the C70. In your case of usage you will need a multiplexer, which increases the 4800 Baud of the NMEA GPS data to 38400 Baud.

How can I register my radio unit?

If you want to operate a DSC radio unit or the AIS transponder easyTRX on a ship, you need a license for this radio unit.You can obtain it from the Bundesnetzagentur (Federal Network Agency). The Federal Network Agency of your radio station will send you a MMSI number, which should then be programmed into the easyTRX. If you already have a MMSI and would like to operate an additional easyTRX, you need to send a notification of change to the Federal Network Agency.

Then, please program your existing MMSI into the easyTRX. The following link provides detailed information:
