wafe Analyzer WV-100

The power of digitized information to support visual observation


▶ Economical and safe navigation*

Leveraging the performance of the FAR-2xx8 and FAR-3xx0 Radars, the Wave Analyzer WV-100 allows real-time Finally, data sharing between ship and shore and between vessels is available for quick adjustment, economical route planning, and efficient traffic management around ports, where monitoring of sea conditions is required to guarantee the safety of all ships.

*As the Wave Analyzer is a computer-based program, it does not affect the performance of the Radar system.

▶ World’s First Wave Analyzer/S-band antenna compatibility

Possible to switch X-Band, S-Band and Solid State antennas according to weather conditions.

X-Band antenna
S-Band antenna
▶ Display wave data on the Radar monitor

The information can be displayed on both the PC screen and the Radar screen.


▶ Automatic adjustment function

It is the first time that a Wave Analyzer incorporates an automatic adjustment function that frees the user from calibrating the Wave Analyzer following the installation.

In addition, the influence of a sudden sea condition change is minimal and does not affect the quality and accuracy of the wave information obtained.

▶ Real-time wave data output

Via serial transmission, data can be output to any external compatible system (Automated weather report system and Dynamic position system .etc).

Clear and intuitive readings

Displays wave data, echo, and system information on a PC monitor.


▶ Wave spectrum display

The Color of the wave spectrum indicates the relative intensity of the wave spectrum display.

▶ Radar echo display

The absolute intensity of the radar reflection from the wave increases in order of dark blue, light blue, light green, dark green, orange, yellow, red.

▶ Significant wave height

The significant wave height is a statistical value obtained by averaging the height of the one-third highest waves when observing the specified area.

▶ [1st Wave] [2nd Wave]

Among the observed waves, the two most outstanding waves are selected and assigned as [1st Wave] and [2nd Wave] for reference. There is no distinction made between wind waves and swells for this selection.
