Raymarine-Radar-Guide-Radar

Raymarine pulsed magnetron radars combine low average energy with high peak powers allowing the radar to detect targets at greater ranges, and to punch through adverse weather conditions ensuring targets are identified.

We would recommend  Radar is fitted and commissioned by a Certified Raymarine Dealer.

HD Colour Radars

256 colour resolution
Raymarine’s HD Colour radar utilize powerful signal processing technologies that help distinguish between target types, detects weak and distant contacts automatically, while virtually eliminating clutter and noise. The truly adaptive transmitter and receiver automatically adjusts to changing environmental and sea conditions. HD Colour radar delivers a dramatically clearer radar picture with crisp, well-defined contact echoes and a life-like target presentation.

Super HD Colour Radars

256 colour resolution
Super HD Colour radar is a giant leap in leisure marine radar. Using highly advanced digital signal processing, Super HD Colour radar has much greater dynamic range than conventional radar enabling the digital receiver to acquire and process vast amounts of echo information that is normally lost by conventional analogue radar systems. Super HD Colour technology intelligently isolates and identifies true radar targets, while simultaneously eliminating unwanted clutter. The extra-narrow beam width pinpoints targets with stunning clarity. The result is a dramatically clearer radar display.

Raymarine-Radar-Guide-SHD

HD Colour and Super HD Colour models available.

4kW 48 inch SHD Colour Open Array
12kW 48 inch SHD Colour Open Array 
4kW 72 inch SHD Colour Open Array 
12kW 72 inch SHD Colour Open Array

 

Networking

All Raymarine radars are compatible with Raymarine’s current range of MFDs, a Series , c Series, e Series, gS Series. Raymarine-Radar-Guide-Connect

Raymarine radars connect directly in to an MFD using Raynet cables (Ethernet) or via a network switch. The Raynet will share radar with other MFDs connected to Raynet

See our Raymarine MFD Guide for more details and a full product range

 

Chart Overlay, Target Tracking, MARPA

Using MARPA (mini-automatic radar plotting aid) allows you to identify vessel, speed, bearing, closest point of approach (CPA) and time to closest point of approach (TCPA), dangerous/proximity alarms, overlay AIS info for further target clarification.

Raymarine-Radar-Guide-MARPA

For the best overlay and MARPA a fast heading input is required this can be obtained by fitting an EV-1 or EV-2 Sensor Core or linking to an SPX autopilot.

See our Raymarine Autopilot Guide for more details on EV-1 and EV-2 Sensor Core

 

Cut out Clutter

Detect targets at very close proximity to your vessel, or at very long ranges to see distant vessels, land features and even weather fronts. Distinguish targets through even the heaviest rain clutter.
Raymarine’s HD Colour scanners provide superior all weather performance allowing you to still see targets through rain and thunderstorms. Use radar to track weather too.
