FURUNO WLAN Radar Sensor DRS4W - Discover now

Wireless radar on iPhone or an iPad

Instead of a complex plotter you will only need the FURUNO wireless radar in combination with an iPhone or an iPad in order to display the classical radar images. The conventional radar antenna with 4 kW transmission power has a special module that transforms the radar signals into WiFi records. These can then be displayed on a total of two Apple devices. For this purpose the FURUNO radar app needs to be downloaded in advance. It combines the familiar basic configuration options of a conventional radar with the intuitive use of iPhone and iPad. Thus, the use of radar and its abstract images quickly becomes popular and even inexperienced crew members can be encouraged to meaningfully play around with the images and therefore learn how a radar works. The advantage will be that these experiences with radar, radar images, the settings and evaluation will bring about a decisive advantage when the conditions are harsh with poor visibility due to rain, fog, spray and mist while inexperienced crew members might already be overwhelmed by the plurality of switches, buttons and soft keys on the plotter.

Always on the cutting edge of technology - Innovations within in the field of radar technology In 2014, FURUNO released the world's first WLAN radar system - the DRS4W Radar Sensor. Thanks to a special module, it is possible to transfer wireless images directly to up to two Apple devices (iPhone or iPad) via WiFi. 'Radar to go' can be operated from different locations at any time, in a radius of 10m. A further advantage of this technology is that an extra display isn't required, which makes this system particularily attractive for its purchase price. If you opt to go for FURUNO technology on board of your vessel, you will have a wide selection of innovations and new products to choose from. FURUNO demonstrates this by the numerous awards they have received from the National Marine Electronics Association (NMEA). Have any further questions? - Give the SVB electronics experts a call.
