Furuno Introduces New 14-Inch Weatherfax

Furuno's new 14-inch Weatherfax.

Furuno's new FAX-214 is not only one of the most advanced weatherfax receivers now on the market, but it is also capable of being a fully functional NAVTEX system with the addition of an op- tional built-in receiver/processor.

As a fax receiver, the FAX-214 produces high-quality and very high resolution weather charts and satel- lite images with eight gray-scale lev- els on high contrast 14-inch white thermal recording paper. There is no unpleasant carbon dust, nor do you have to deal with crinkled wet paper readouts. The FAX-214 has a built-in synthesized receiver that covers all known 80-160 kHz and 2- 25 MHz fax frequencies in 100-Hz steps, and offers microprocessor controlled scanning for any station or combination you may desire to program into the unit. Other stan- dard features include keep-alive batteries to protect data in memory and a timer so that the unit may be activated at preprogrammed times.

In the NAVTEX mode, the FAX- 214 will automatically store normal incoming messages for printout af- ter the fax traffic is complete. For urgent messages, however, the unit automatically overrides the fax mode and prints the messages im- mediately,

An optional active antenna cou- pler is available that covers stan- dard fax as well as the 518-kHz

NAVTEX transmissions.

Operation is from a 10-40 VDC universal power supply, drawing just 15 W on standby and 27 W operating.

Free StartMaster Literature

Describes User Benefits

Of Air Starting Systems

StartMaster of Marion, Ohio, is offering free literature describing their air starting systems which, ac- cording to the manufacturer, pro- vide dependable starting for heavy trucks, buses, mining machinery, oil and gas drilling equipment, marine

April, 1989 engines, compressor packages, gen- erator sets, and off-highway vehi- cles.

The literature discusses the major advantages air starters offer over electric starters, viz: twice the cranking power; superior perform- ance in cold weather; better "hot start" capability; spark-free opera- tion; fewer batteries, less mainte- nance; and longer starter life.

Also pointed out is that all Start-

Master models are available as "Su- perStarters," a new, friction-resis- tant configuration that adds even more durability and service life and eliminates the need for lubrication to the air motor, thus eliminating all maintenance costs associated with in-line and automatic lubricators.

SuperStarters are readily available from production. To order merely add the letter "L" after the stan- dard part number.

Photographs, cutaway and di- mensional drawings complement the text, and a model selection list, complete with part numbers, is in- cluded.
