New Revolutionary River Radar

System Launched By Kelvin Hughes —Free Literature Available—

Nothing Performs Better

Kelvin Hughes Ltd. of England has launched a new revolutionary

River Radar system, the RSR 1000, that has been designed to meet the rigorous standards of the new Rhine

River Radar specification.

The RSR 1000 consists of only two compact units, a display and an aerial/transceiver, connected by a single cable. It can easily be fitted to a wide variety of vessels required to navigate in rivers and congested wa- terways.

The 20-inch display unit uses a technique that is unique to river radar applications to provide the close-range echo discrimination, called for in the new Rhine River specification, on a continuous bright 150% view ahead picture. The aer- ial/transceiver consists of a 2.4-me- ter antenna, 5-kw transmitter and wide-band width receiver combined in a lightweight unit which can be mounted up to 30 meters from the display.

General Electric Grants 'Quality-Award' To MWH

General Electric recently pre- sented supplier Markisches Werk

Halver (MWH) its 'Quality-Award' for not having had a single failure within 10 years. This award signifies that General Electric will rely sole- lyon MWH's quality control in the future and will not undertake its own "goods-in" quality inspection.

The award is important for MWH because out of 1,500 suppliers only 100 have been awarded with this distinction, and of these only three were European companies.

For many years quality and reli- ability have been the main charac- teristics of MWH's products. This means long service life, little main- tenance, and consequently in- creased economy for the customers.

MWH can offer a wide range of products which covers valve spin- dles, valve cages, valve rotators, complete valve assemblies and ac- cessories.
