JRC JSS-2150 MF/HF Radio with DSC
The JSS-2150/2250/2500 MF/HF Class A DSC radio equipment features an
intuitive user interface and a highly reliable circuit that enables all-mode
continuous full power operation.
Class A 6CH DSC watch-keeping built-in
The MF/HF has Digital Selective Calling (DSC*) as standard with
a built in Class A 6CH DSC watch-keeping receiver. You can transmit and receive
digital selective calls for quick and efficient establishment of distress,
urgency, safety and routine communication with other ships and coast stations.
In distress situations, the MF/HF sends an alert once you press
the distress button. The integrated DSC watch-keeping receiver monitors distress
alarms through continuous scanning of distress frequencies.
* Fully meets new ITU-R M.493-13
MF/HF controller settings
The MF/HF controller uses a 3.8-inch high visibility LCD display, which you
can adjust at your own convenience. The display has 10 dim settings and you can
set the contrast up to 11 different levels. An integrated screensaver and the
ability to assign a commonly used menu to a user key for direct access, are just
a few of the possibilities.
The MF/HF controller includes a prominent distress button, with features to
prevent accidental activation. When in distress, you can send a DSC message
instantly, transmitting your MMSI, position, time of position and nature of
distress, enabling an immediate response for search and rescue efforts.
The MF/HF controller integrates an advanced digital audio
amplifier, which increases the amount of power, making the receiving message
loud and clear.
Connect a remote control
Getting a second operation controller onboard is easy. Connect a second MF/HF
controller to the transceiver and position the controller at a secondary
location on the ship. The second MF/HF station is fully operable and you can
transfer saved channel data to optimize your operation.
The MF/HF controller design allows you to carry out all
operations simply by using the same unified keyboard layout as found in JRC's
VHF radiotelephone. The keypad is solid and responsive, which allows for precise
operation. The keys are also backlit, making it easy to operate in low-light
settings on the bridge.
NBDP (telex) option
Complement your MF/HF with the NBDP* kit for telex communication
with shore radio stations and with other ships. It includes a10.4-inch data
terminal equipment featuring a color display with a variety of color
backgrounds. The LCD gives you a bright picture with excellent color
consistency, even when you are viewing the display from the side.
The USB 2.0 port located on the front panel allows you to connect a mass
storage device to save and load messages.
What is in the NBDP kit?
- Data terminal (NDZ-227)
- Keyboard (NDF-369)
- Printer (NKG-800)
- U-type bracket for display (MPBP31721)
- Signal & power cables for data terminal and printer
- Necessary NBDP software and manual
* Narrow Band Direct Printing (NBDP)
All MF/HF models are minimum configured as standard, consisting
of a MF/HF controller+handset, transceiver and antenna tuner. The 150W model can
be applied for non-solas vessels, but also configured with necessary options up
to GMDSS A4 area. In contrast to the other two models, the 150W version has a
smaller transceiver and antenna tuner which allows for a more flexible
installation approach in confined spaces.
High power models
When more power output is required, simply select the 250W or
500W version. Additionally, the new 250W and 500W version come with a redesigned
antenna tuner, transceiver and power supply designed to fit into an optional 19
inch rack :NCU-515A.
The MF/HF models can be installed together with a set of
Inmarsat-C: JUE-87 in the optional GMDSS console: NCU-531A. Optionally the
controller and handset of VHF radiotelephone: JHS-770S/780D can be installed in
the same console.
In the box
- MF/HF controller+Handset
- Antenna tuner
- MF/HF controller to transceiver cable (5 m)
- Power supply (250W/500W only)
With JRC's MF/HF radio equipment you can perform self-diagnosis checks on the
controller and transceiver, allowing for easy maintenance and more reliability.
The results are directly shown on the screen and can be saved as a log (up to 10
possible) or printed (with optional printer).
Remote Maintenance System (RMS)
JRC's unique RMS allows remote monitoring of bridge equipment
from ashore. Using JRC VDR and INMARSAT FB satellite communication equipment,
JRC can establish a highly secured connection to the vessel and cost-effectively
and accurately determine the operating status of the JRC equipment while at sea.
