Furuno Introduces CH-37 Sonar
Thursday, February 03, 2000
New from Furuno is CH-37, the world's only phased array sector scan sonar. Measuring 15-in., this high-performance daylight viewing unit allows the operator to choose from forward, vertical or searchlight scan modes. Incorporating Furuno's phased array technology, CH-37 scans a full 360-degrees in just 8.6 seconds on the 1,500 ft. range. The product features echoes in eight or 16 colors on a high-resolution CRT, offering unsurpassed visibility. Displaying clear underwater images in full-circle, searchlight, vertical fan or 3D bottom profile graphics, an external monitor can also be connected to CH-37 with an optional video output interface board.
Available in 60, 113 or 162 kHz frequencies, CH-37 offers 12 range scales from 100 to 6,000 ft. (20 to 1,000 fathoms) when operating in full circle mode.
