RADAR STANDS ALONE

SAIL - - New Boats -

Fu­runo’s new 1815 radar pack­age looks ideal for boats that don’t have in­te­grated elec­tron­ics sys­tems or for sailors who just want an un­com­pli­cated in­stal­la­tion. The stand­alone unit com­prises a 19in, 4kw radome and a com­pact dis­play with an 8.4in color LCD screen. With a 24nm range, it shares much of the tech­nol­ogy found in Fu­runo’s big­ger radars. Up to 10 tar­gets can be tracked man­u­ally or au­to­mat­i­cally via Fast Tar­get Track­ing, and mov­ing tar­gets leave a col­or­ful trail so you can tell at a glance which way they are headed. If the 1815 is con­nected to a Fu­runo AIS, up to 100 tar­gets can be tracked and dis­played. Im­por­tantly for sail­boats, power con­sump­tion is fru­gal at just 38W. $2,495. Fu­runo, fu­runo.com
