Furuno has launched a new standalone colour LCD radar Model 1815 to the marine market which builds upon the best features of its previous commercial and network models.

The Furuno 1815 is a durable standalone
Radar package with an 8.4” color LCD screen and stylish, low-profile 4kW radome
antenna.

It’s designed for a wide variety of
vessels, including pleasure craft, workboats and small fishing boats that
require an easy-to-use, true colour radar at an affordable price.

This compact radar incorporates many of
Furuno’s latest radar features, including Furuno’s Fast Target Tracking (TT)
function, which allows the user to manually or automatically track up to ten
targets.

Tracked target speed and vector display is
available in seconds, making quick work of assessing hazards from approaching
or moving targets.

In addition to TT, the 1815 can also
display up to 100 AIS targets when interfaced with an AIS Receiver and
applicable sensors.

Another useful feature is Furuno’s
proprietary True Trail mode. With True Trails, moving objects will show a
gradation trail of the target in their wake, making it possible to gauge the
directional movement of targets at a glance.

The automatic gain reduction on the 1815
makes use of algorithms that have been refined over many decades of Furuno
experience and innovation. This makes the unit second to none in clutter
rejection eliminating unnecessary echoes and highlighting other vessels, buoys
and objects on the sea surface, in both good weather and bad.
