Furuno Introduces New Line
Of Medium-Size Radars And New
Video Sounder With Etched CRT
Furuno U.S.A., Inc., San Francis- co, Calif., has introduced a new line of medium radars, and a new mono- chrome video sounder with etched
Furuno's FR-8000D series radar.
Furuno's new FR-8000D Series radars are designed to provide top performance at a reasonable price for most workboats, fishing vessels and larger yachts. These radars, available in 5-, 10-, and 25-kw mod- els, feature extremely high resolu- tion (481 x 640 pixels) 12-inch monochrome CRT displays with no- compromise eight-level quantiza- tion. The result is a bright, non-fad- ing radar picture that is sharp and crisp.
Range scales from 1/4 to as high as 96 n.m. (depending on output power), picture off-centering any- where on the CRT, 2X target zoom, dual EVRMs, dual EBLs (one of which may be offset or of floating origin) fully adjustable visual and audible alarm, and choice of three antenna lengths are standard. Also included are echo trails for rapid target plotting, echo averaging for improved sea clutter performance, echo stretch for target enhance- ment, and Furuno's exclusive low noise MIC receiver. With nav and heading sensors, a full range of navi- gation data can be displayed on the
In addition, the optional RP-3 video plotter allows overlaying course plot and chart data on the radar picture; the optional ARP-3 provides automatic tracking of 10 targets, with target course and speed shown digitally and by vec- tor.
Furuno's FMV-603 is a new com- pact video sounder with a bright, high-resolution 6-inch CRT which has been specially etched to reduce

Both 50 and 200 kHz transmitters give the FMV-603 optimum deep and shallow water performance, and
Product Range Through
KaMeWa recently expanded its product range through a licensing agreement with Seapacer Marketing
AB, Gothenburg, Sweden.
The new product, to be marketed under the name of KaMeWa-Sea- pacer, is an integrated system for maintaining optimum economical performance at sea.
Together with KaMeWa's other products, i.e.—controllable-pitch propellers, tunnel thrusters, etc., the company has taken another step towards its goal of providing the shipping industry with the most op- timal way of operating a vessel. four presentation modes permit viewing various combinations of high, low, or mixed frequencies, bot- tom lock, any of eight zoom ranges, stored data, speed and surface water temperature. Standard features in- clude noise limiter, automatic phas- ing and an audible alarm that works as either a fish or bottom alarm.
The FMV-603 offers eight basic range scales to 1,000 feet, phasable in 1-foot steps to 2,000 feet, and out- put power is a full 150 watts. On- screen data (with appropriate op- tional sensors) includes depth read- out, ship speed, water temperature and temperature plot, and ship po- sition in Lat/Lon.

The new KaMeWa-Seapacer con- tinuously measures the values for actual speed, fuel consumption and sailed distance and can either be set to maintain a preset fuel consump- tion, a preset speed or a preset arri- val time, all utilizing the advantages offered by the controllable-pitch propeller.
A number of units have been installed and are in operation and these units have successfully attri- buted to substantial fuel savings and improved route keeping. The company expects a significant market for the KaMeWa-Seapacer.
