Power & Motor Yacht - - TESTED NEW ELECTRONICS -

Fu­runo has added the DRS6A-NXT solid-state Dop­pler radar sys­tem to its full-range line of radar sys­tems. De­signed to work with Fu­runo’s TZ­touch and TZ­touch2 mul­ti­func­tion dis­plays, the open-ar­ray unit uses Dop­pler tech­nol­ogy to track tar­gets and pro­vides each mov­ing tar­get’s speed and course vec­tor. Af­ter an­a­lyz­ing the vec­tor, the DRS6A-NXT will then turn haz­ardous tar­gets red in color, to en­sure the user can quickly iden­tify col­li­sion threats at a glance. The radar can be used to track up to 100 ARPA tar­gets in a sin­gle sweep, ac­cord­ing to the man­u­fac­turer, and uses a pro­pri­etary fea­ture called True Trail to de­pict the move­ment of each tar­get in­de­pen­dently. The DRS6A-NXT is avail­able with 3.5-, 4-, and 6-foot open-ar­ray an­ten­nas, which pro­vide hor­i­zon­tal beamwidths of 2.3, 1.9, and 1.4 de­grees, re­spec­tively. The re­sult is an ef­fec­tive range from 30 feet to 72 nau­ti­cal miles, ac­cord­ing to Fu­runo. Built-in bird and rain modes al­low an­glers and cruis­ers to spot tar­gets they’re in­ter­ested in find­ing, or work more ef­fec­tively in less-than-ideal con­di­tions, as the DRS6ANXT au­to­mat­i­cally ad­justs to the con­di­tions. The unit uses a lighter gear­box, mak­ing it eas­ier to in­stall, whether the boat is get­ting a whole new sys­tem or a sin­gle pe­riph­eral up­grade. fu­runousa.com
