Product beschrijving

So you know what lies ahead!
2D sonar images of the ground beneath your boat

Simrad ForwardScan Technology
Forward Scan provides you with a 2D sonar image of the sea bed in front of your boat. In shallow, unknown or poorly charted waters ForwardScan will help you navigate safely and avoid grounding. It is also a useful aid when searching a safe anchorage that still offers enough space for free-swinging even with wind direction changes.

The forward scan sensor works with 180 kHz, thus reducing perfectly the common interference of traditional 200 kHz sonars. The maximum preview distance is roughly the 8-fold distance of your current depth. For example: If you are currently cruising in waters of 5m depth, you can preview the deep waters that lie up to 40m ahead. At a speed of 3 knots this distance will be passed in around 30 seconds. Accordingly, the Simrad ForwardScan sonar is no module made for high speeds, but a navigational aid for maneuvers at low speed.

Integration in MFD-Systems with Simrad NSS evo2/NSO evo2
Forward Scan can be connected quickly and easily via the StructureScan Port evo2 to any Simrad NSS multifunction display - you do not need any additional hardware. For NSO evo2-module systems or NSS evo2 systems that are already using the Structure Scan, ForwardScan can be connected via the optional Simrad / Lowrance SonarHub sounder module.

Bottom tracing in a coloured display
The bottom tracing in a coloured display provides a graphical 2D representation of the ground ahead of your boat that is easily understandable without further explanations. So you can make your navigation decisions quickly and effectively.

Course line display
The course line display combines ForwardScan depth data with the course line displayed on the navigation page of your Simrad MFD. The line is displayed in colored segments, depending on whether it is deep, medium or shallow water, whereby you can adjust your boat's depth levels accordingly.

Easy installation
Thanks to the 50.8 mm (2") through-hull fittings from stainless steel the ForwardScan transducer can be installed on almost every boat. The implementation also works for 25.4 mm (1") thick side walls with keel angle 12° or 19 mm (3/4") thick side panels suitable with 20° keel angle.
