Unprecedented Echo clarity with Automatic Clutter Elimination (ACE)

The FURUNO FAR-22x8BB series is a brand-new radar series characterized by its state-of-the-art antenna design and innovative signal processing techniques. FURUNO latest and finest technologies and intuitive design will increase situational awareness and enable safer than ever navigation. Quickly adjusts the Radar image with a single button press. When the ACE function is activated, the system automatically adjusts clutter reduction filters and gain control according to the sea and weather conditions.

Prevent Collision at an early stage with the fast Target TrackingTM Function

With Fast Target Tracking™, the FAR-22x8BB series provides accurate tracking information; speed and course vectors are displayed in mere seconds allowing operators to take action and avoid incidents at a very early stage.

Experience a User Interface Designed for the Ultimate Intuitive Operation

InstantAccess barTM give you immediate access to the function you need. The InstantAccess barTMcontains shortcut menus of tasks (functions/actions) that operators frequently use, so they can quickly access necessary tasks.

Well-designed Controllers for Stress-Free Operation

Comfortable usability is very important on long voyages. With that in mind, these control units are designed based on ergonomics to fit the operator’s hand. All operations can be controlled with the trackball. An optional Trackball Control Unit is also available.

Refined Antennas with high Signal Accuracy and Excellent Reliability

The FAR-2218BB and FAR-2228BB Radars are designed to provide clearer and more accurate radar images of the surroundings while increasing reliability and decreasing overall cost of ownership with easy maintenance. High image quality is achieved by the signal processor inside the X-Band antenna unit directly converting analog to digital signals before sending them to the main processor unit. Signals are safely transported though the Ethernet network between the antenna and below deck processing unit.
The gearbox itself has been redesigned to reduce aerodynamic drag that lightens the environmental burden on the gearbox. This, along with an all-new brushless DC motor, results in a very durable gearbox that can be used for prolonged periods.

Installation and maintenance are now easier than ever. All components of the gear box are integrated into one block that can easily be removed from the gear box when maintenance is required. The cable to the gear box can be connected from the side of the gear box.
