Furuno Introduces New FR/FAR-2800

Big Ship Radar/ARPA Line

Furuno, makers of some of the world's finest marine radars, recent- ly announced a new heavy duty, commercial line of rasterscan ra- dars/ARPAs designed to fully meet

IMO regulations for installation aboard all classes of vessels. Ten dif- ferent models are available with a large variety of performance fea- tures and options that make them ideal for any commercial vessels and the largest yachts.

All units have a 28-inch-high re- solution green phosphor CRT with 15-level quantization, six pulse- lengths and repetition rates, Furu- no's MCI low noise receiver, plus echo stretch, echo averaging and radar interference rejector to pro- vide an unsurpassed radar picture in any weather conditions. Other standard features include dual

EBLs and VRMs, alarmed guard zone, echo trail, electronic parallel index lines, off-centering, electronic plotting of up to 10 targets with 10 different symbols, choice of 25- or 50-kw X-band, or 30- or 60-kw S- band outputs, T/R up or down, and choice of a variety of antenna lengths.

The FAR-2800 ARPAs acquire up to 20 targets automatically, plus up to 20 additional targets manually, or all 40 targets manually. Movement of tracked targets can be shown by true or relative vectors and plots.

On-screen digital readouts show range, bearing, course, speed, CPA and TCPA, BCR (bow crossing range) and BCT of up to three tar- get ships, as well as own ship course and speed. Additionally, the system displays user selectable traffic lane, buoys, danger points and other im- portant references. A trial maneuver feature simulates the effect of own ship maneuver on all tracked targets without interrupting target infor- mation.

Furuno's FR/FAR 2800 Series has built-in interfacing for gyro, speed log and interswitch (optional) for dual radar/ARPA installation.
