The revolutionary FAR-28x7 series of X and
S-band radars are the result of FURUNO's 50 years experience in 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 10,000 GT and above.
The display unit employs a 23.1" LCD. It provides an effective picture
diameter of larger than 340 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 in 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-28x7 series provide ARPA and AIS
(transponder unit is required) function as a standard.
A variety of radar antenna is selectable, from 4', 6.5' or 8' radiator. The
rotation speed is selectable from 24 rpm for standard radars or 42 rpm for HSC.
The S-band radar FAR-2837S is also available. The S-band radar assures target
detection in adverse weather where X-band radar are heavily affected by sea or
