FR8255 12.1" 25kW, 96nm UHD Radar System - Less Antenna
State of the art signal processing and UHD digital radar technology!
The 12.1" color radar FR8005 series features state of the art signal processing, which makes it easier to identify targets in heavy rain and poor visibility. The FR8005 radar can discern between rain and surface reflections, providing the ability to find and track the movement of rain clouds as well as removing unnecessary echoes. For tracking the movement of other vessels at sea, "True Motion Trails" can be displayed as well as AIS/TT target-tracking with a zoom display function. When the vessel is in motion, the radar echoes move smoothly on the main display thanks to the "True View Mode."
Target-Tracking Zoom Display Function
Even during rainfalls or severe weather conditions, radar echoes are clearly displayed, and unnecessary echoes can be removed instantly with ease. Compared with current radars (FR8002 series) the technology for removing sea, rain and snow clutter has been greatly enhanced utilizing FURUNO's state of the art knowledge in digital signal processing. When using the Target mode, vessels close by and vessels on intersecting courses are automatically displayed zoomed in. These targets will remain displayed for as long as they pose any concern. Target Trails are also displayed, making it easy for the user to determine the movements of individual vessels.
True Trail Mode
When using the True Trail Mode, moving objects will show up on the main screen with a colorful trail. These trails make it possible to see the movement of nearby vessels in the blink of an eye.
True View Mode
The radar echoes move smoothly on the main display thanks to the "True View Mode". The True View Mode is based on the head-up mode. During the radar sweep, the echoes move according to the heading of your ship. Since the echoes move in real-time, the discrepancy between an observed target and what is displayed on the radar screen is greatly reduced.
Full-Screen Mode and Off-Center Mode
Make use of the whole display surface with the Full-Screen mode, giving you more information when making important decisions. When combining Full-Screen mode with Off-Center mode any target or point of interest can be observed in detail. The overlay information can be turned off, to observe targets obstructed by the text as well as providing an unobstructed radar view.
Target Tracking and AIS Display
The Target Tracking (TT) feature continously tracks and provides positional information for up to ten targets. An AIS device-equipped FR8005 series radar can track target heading, name, speed and direction of movement. With AIS it is possible to identify and track the movement of other vessels in heavy fog, during nighttime and otherwise difficult conditions. Another benefit is that with AIS you can identify obscured targets that the radar signals cannot reach, giving you more time to act. AIS can display up to 100 targets simultaneously, TT can display up to 10 different targets simultaneously.
