Furuno Introduces New High Power NAVNET Pair

Thursday, April 25, 2002
Furuno added to its extremely popular NavNet series of Radar/Chart Plotters, the 1953C & 1953C/NT. Designed for all types of vessels, the 1953C series bundles high-power X-band radar performance with the latest NavNet technology. Built to commercial-grade standards for rugged reliability, the 1953C is a 12kW Radar with a 1/8 to 72 n.m. range. It is available with either a 4 or 6 ft. open array antenna.

This unit presents true color radar images on a high-resolution 10.4-in. color LCD, housed in a rugged and waterproof case. All of the NavNet color displays are able to show true color radar targets, which allows the user to determine the strength of the echoes by the different colors. The 1953C offers many standard radar features, including an Electronic Bearing Line (EBL), an Electronic Variable Range Marker (EVRM), Echo Trails, Guard Zone Alarm, Off-Center, Target Zoom, and Watch Modes. When connected to proper heading and speed sensors, all units can display images in Head-up, Course-up, North-up or True Motion.

Continuous and automatic control of receiver tuning, sensitivity and anti-clutter ensures optimum performance and target detection, while keeping the overall operation of the radar features simple. Add the optional Radar Autoplotter (ARP11) with an appropriate Heading Sensor and the user can automatically up to 10 targets continuously.

The 1953C includes an integral, full-featured chart plotter that can be displayed full screen, split screen with the Radar or even Radar overlay to make navigating even easier. Choose from two units that accept either Furuno CDC and Navionics or C-MapNT mini-chart cards. The charts can be presented in True Motion North-up, True Motion Course-up, Relative Motion North-up and Relative Motion Course-up. When the True Motion mode is selected, coastlines remain stationary on the screen while your own ship moves according to its actual course. The Relative Modes keep your ship at the center of the screen, while the coastlines move in relation to the vessel's position. In addition to the standard Course Plot mode on the Chart Plotter, a choice of Alphanumeric Nav Data, Steering Display and Highway modes are offered. The Chart Plotter allows for storage of up to 8,000 points for ship's track and marks, 1,000 waypoints and 200 planned routes with a maximum of 35 waypoints per route. It also has special alarm functions that alert the user whenever the vessel enters or leaves a pre-defined area (Arrival/Anchor Watch), exceeds a preset limit (XTE) or approaches a dangerous area (Proximity Alert). With proper inputs, it can also alarm when water depth or temperature exceeds predefined limits, or when fish are present.
