▶ Automatic Clutter Elimination (ACE) function provides clear echoes

Users can quickly adjust the radar image with a single action. When Automatic Clutter Elimination (ACE) function is activated, the system automatically adjusts the clutter reduction filter and gain control according to the sea and weather conditions selected (Calm/Rough Sea/Hard Rain).

Our advanced echo averaging architecture is also incorporated into Automatic Clutter Elimination (ACE) function. Users can avoid complicated adjustment processes, resulting in clear echo images.





▶ Improved Target Tracking (TT) function
  • ● Target acquisition takes only a few seconds
  • ● Acquired target does not jump to adjacent target
  • ● Reliable and stable tracking of high-speed and rapidly maneuvering vessels


▶ Advanced Interference Reduction (IR) function

Target Echo does not become smaller even with IR on

▶ 26” Wide LCD monitor compatibility
▶ Complies with the following regulations:
  • ● IEC62388 Ed. 2.0
  • ● IEC61174 Ed. 3.0
  • ● IEC62288
  • ● IEC61162-1 Ed. 4.0
  • ● IEC61162-2



Multifunction display (MFD) capability*

FURUNO offers workstations that combine flexibility and redundancy. Users may easily select ECDIS, Chart Radar, Conning display or Alert Management System at any multi-function display. Navigators will enjoy reduced workload and significant freedom to move about the bridge. All necessary information is available on a variety of displays and at locations that may be altered as required.

*MFD capability is to be implemented as software update

Sensor Adapter

▶ Common sensor adaptor makes installation and maintenance easy

The Sensor Adapter acts as a central medium to gather all of the sensor data and collectively feed it to all FAR-3000 Chart Radar and FMD-3200/3300 ECDIS in the network. Since the sensor adapter can be extended to interface with all the sensors within the network, individual cable connections in the sensor-to-Chart Radar/ECDIS interface can be greatly reduced.


Navigation sensors can be directly interfaced with the processor’s 8 serial I/0 ports.
Sensor adapters are required under the following conditions


  • ● The sensor data is to be shared amongst multiple networked Chart Radar and ECDIS systems,
  • ● The number of sensors interfaced is more than the number of the ports the processor has (8 serial I/O ports, 1 digital IN and 6 digital OUT), and/or
  • ● The networked sensors include analog sensors.


In order to integrate onboard sensors into the navigation network, the sensor adapter may be interfaced with the switching hub HUB-100 from which distribution of the sensor data throughout the network is possible. Alternatively, multiple sensor adapters may be interfaced via Ethernet to integrate onboard sensors for use in the shipboard network.



User Interface

FURUNO’s new user interface delivers straightforward operation

Unique & smart operation tool – “Status bar” and “InstantAccess bar™”

The user interface of the Radar utilizes carefully organized operational tools: The Status bar and The InstantAccess bar™.
These operational tools deliver straightforward, task-based operation by which the operator can quickly perform tasks without having to navigate an intricate menu tree.




Stress-free operation with the well-designed control unit




Intuitive operation

All operations can be controlled with the trackball.

Contextual menu

The context menu contains all the available actions related to the selected icon or area, it provides quick access to tasks.
