Furuno Introduces Digitized Small Radar

—Literature Available The new Furuno Model 1700 is a technically advanced small radar combining a fully digitized non fading display with Furuno's microwave IC circuitry that significantly improves operating reliability and receiver sensitivity.

Furuno reports unequaled performance in this class of compact radar. The multilevel quantization circuits recognize four distinct signal return levels—not just one— that eliminate "broken up" picture problems. The 9-inch diagonal CRT and bright green phosphor provide crisp daylight viewing of radar targets throughout the Vi to 16-mile range, as well as on-screen readout of all system operational data.

The Model 1700 is also compact and lightweight, making it the ideal radar for small commercial vessels.

The display, at just 10 inches high by 12.2 inches wide by 10.4 inches deep including mounting bracket, will fit any installation requirement.

The majority of controls are sealed membrane keypads for extra long life. The sleek, low windage radome is only 24 inches in diameter by 13.6 inches high and weighs only 24 '/a pounds so that it is almost unnoticeable up the mast.

Built-in electronic bearing line (EBL), electronic variable range marker (EVRM), interference rejection circuitry, sea and rain clutter controls, and automatic selection of pulse length/pulse repetition rate to optimize picture quality on any range are all standard features. Operation is from either 12 or 24 VDC systems, and power drain is 45 W.
