Raytheon Marine Unveils N e w Doppler Speed Log

—Literature Available Raytheon Marine Company of Manchester, N.H., has just introduced the DSL-150 doppler speed log for ships, workboats, and fishing vessels. This highly accurate speed log exceeds all International Maritime Organization (IMO) standards for speed-measuring devices that are now required on new ships of 500 grt and over and ships fitted with automatic radar plotting aids (ARPA). The DSL-150 interfaces with radar, ARPA, satellite navigators, and other equipment, and offers a wide range of optional remote speed and distance-run displays.

This new model is a three-part unit with transducer, digital display, and main electronics cabinet.

The display is a three-digit red LED readout showing speed measurements from zero to 30 knots in l/wknot increments. Fore and aft indicators are shown in red and green.

Distance run is displayed using a six-digit counter with manual reset control on the front panel.
