Furuno introduces the first IMO-compliant X-band/S-band magnetron-free solution for commercial vessels with the new Solid-State X-band Radar, NXT series
FURUNO ELECTRIC CO., LTD. (headquartered in Nishinomiya, Japan) presents, for the first time, a complete Magnetron-free Radar/Chart Radar Solution in both X-band and S-band configuration, with the introduction of new Solid-State X-band models: FAR- 2xx8-NXT Radar and FAR-3xx0-NXT Chart Radar.
Furuno NXT Solid-State Radars use electronic components to generate microwave pulse and therefore, require much less power than magnetron Radars. This technology does not wear out and does not require any particular maintenance, significantly reducing operating costs. Finally, there is no pre-heating making the startup time much faster than with a magnetron.
