The revolutionary FAR28x7 series of X- and S-band Radars are the result of FURUNO's 50 years experience in marine electronics and advanced computer technology. This equipment is designed to meet the standards of the IMO for ships of 10,000 GT and above.
Beautiful Color Displays
The display unit employs a 23.1" LCD. It provides an effective picture diameter of larger than 340 mm. The SXGA monitor provides crisp radar echoes, which are presented in a selected color with a day or night background color for easy observation in all lighting conditions. Different colors are assigned for marks, symbols, and texts for user-friendly operations.
Unparallelled target detection
Target detection is enhanced by sophisticated signal processing techniques such as multi-level quantization (MLQ), echo stretch, echo average, and Radar interference rejecter. Two guard zones can be set at required ranges in any sector. Other ship's movements are assessed by advanced target tracking software and alerted by CPA/TCPA data readouts. The FAR28x7 series provide ARPA and AIS (transponder unit is required) function as a standard. A variety of antenna is selectable, from 4', 6.5' or 8' radiator. The rotation speed is selectable from 24 rpm for standard Radars or 42 rpm for HSC. The S-band Radar FAR2837S assures target detection in adverse weather where X-band radar is heavily affected by sea or rain clutter.
