Always Alerting

XB-8000 consumes very low power which makes it most effective when power is limited in resource or needs to be conserved.

While cruising, the XB-8000 sounds the alarm in case of a potential collision or a man overboard situation, even when all other equipment like MFDs or mobile devices are switched off. While at anchor, you can sleep soundly knowing fully well that the smartAIS transponder watches out for anchor drag or man overboard situations and sounds the alarm without needing any other equipment.

Universal Compatibility

Vesper Marine is compatible with all the leading brands of marine equipment and MFDs including Raymarine, Garmin, Furuno, Simrad and many more.

Mobile applications

Vesper Marine's transponders are also compatible with a wide variety of mobile, and tablet applications.

External Alarm and Switch

WatchMate XB-8000 is often mounted in a low profile location behind an instrument panel, but its powerful external alarm and switch can be mounted anywhere on board at a convenient location where you can access it. If the XB-8000 detects a risk situation due to a potential collision, anchor drag or an MOB activation, it sounds the external alarm which operates even if your plotter, MFD or mobile device is turned off. more
