Making new history- the new RADAR FAR-2xx8
“We wanted to create a long-lasting radar which could be fully utilised for at least 10 years”, said development project leader of the FAR-2xx8 series Suminori Ekuni. He continued “The FAR-2xx8 series is a successor model of the FAR-2xx7 series. With incomparable performance, easy-to-use interface design, maintainability and robustness, in many senses the FAR-2xx8 series can be considered as a whole new class of radar.
“While upgrading functional aspects, we attached importance to the comfort of use and that is why the FAR-2xx8 series inherits some parts of the user interface of FAR-2xx7 series, which many of our users are familiar with. We also added InstantAccess bar so that users can use short-cut functions such as ACE and fast target tracking easily with just a single press of button.
“Safety matters as much as performance. Our latest digital signal processing technology and highly receptive antenna enables the FAR-2xx8 series to detect targets and show echoes with a crisp image on your monitor, when the ships are moving fast around your vessel or even located miles away. By ensuring the performance and safety in all circumstances, we are confident that our radar will deliver the best to our customers in terms of reliability, quality, and a new experience in navigation”.
