The revolutionary FAR-21x7S series of
S-band radars are the result of FURUNO's 50 years of experience in the marine
electronics and advanced computer technology. This series of equipment is
designed to meet the exacting standards of the International Maritime
Organization (IMO) for ships of 1000 GT and more but less than 10000 GT.
(NOTE:300 GT ships can carry this series of radars)
The display unit employs a 20.1" Color DVI-D LCD, providing an effective
picture diameter of larger than 250 mm. The SXGA monitor provides crisp radar
echoes, which are presented in a selected color with a day or night background
color for easy observation all lighting conditions. Different colors are
assigned for marks, symbols and texts for user-friendly operations.
Target detection is enhanced by sophisticated signal processing techniques
such as multi-level quantization (MLQ), echo stretch, echo average, and radar
interference rejecter. Two guard zones can be set at required ranges in any
sector. Other ship's movements are assessed by advanced target tracking software
and alerted by CPA/TCPA data readouts. The FAR-21x7S series provide ARPA and AIS
(transponder unit is required) function as a standard.
The FAR2137S/12 utilizes a 12' antenna radiator. The S-band radar assures
target detection in adverse weather where X-band radar are heavily affected by
sea or rain clutter.
