FR-8065 / FR-8125 / FR-8255

6 kW / 12 kW / 25 kW Marine Radar, with advanced 'signal processing' and UHD™ digital radar technology.

 

  • High-res 12.1" SVGA colour TFT LCD display 
  • Advanced Signal Processing for Gain, Tuning and AC rain/sea
  • 48 RPM. antenna rotation 
  • True motion echo trails function 
  • Easy connection to AIS
  • Slave display
  • Up to 10 target plots with ARP-11 (optional)
  • Up to 100 AIS targets (optional)

 

The 12.1” color radar of the FR-8005 series features state of the art signal processing, which makes it easier to identify targets in heavy rain and poor visibility. The FR-8005 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”.

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 (FR-8002 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.

Target tracking (TT) and AIS

The Target Tracking (TT) feature continously tracks and provides positional information for up to ten targets.  The optional ARP-11, heading data and speed data are required to use TT. An AIS device-equipped FR-8005 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 night time 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. AIS receiver and heading data are required.

AIS/TT target-tracking with zoom display function


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.

AIS transponder and ARP-11 are required to use the zoom display function
