FURUNO introduces its NEW 800 W X-Band Solid State Radar (IMO) and is the first to offer a complete magnet-free solution for radar / chart radars in both the X-band and S-band along with the addition of X-band models to the FAR series -2xx8 / 3xx0 NXT (from next summer 2020).
The absence of a magnetron means less power consumption and the absence of consumables while maintaining the same level of performance thanks to new developments in solid-state technologies. In other words, NXT solid-state radars are both powerful and environmentally friendly.Summary:
“As a leader in the field of marine electronics, FURUNO is committed to providing increasingly effective tools to ensure maritime safety while meeting global environmental goals. (SDGs)”
Solid-State is a technology that uses electronic components instead of a magnetron to generate microwaves. This technology consumes much less energy, does not wear out and does not require special maintenance, which significantly reduces operating costs. And also, no time is required for preheating, which makes starting much faster than with a magnetron.
As a result, solid-state radar is a more environmentally friendly radar, which requires less maintenance and provides the same characteristics as its magnetron counterpart.
Launching is planned for the summer of 2020.
