  • Page 117: Radome Scanner Unit, Display Unit, Cleaning The Display Unit Screen

    Radome Scanner Unit q Radome A radome surface contaminated by smoke, dust, or paint would cause attenuation or reflections of radio waves, resulting in reduced radar performance. Periodically check the radome scanner unit. If it proves dirty, wipe the radome surface with a soft lint-free cloth moistened with alcohol or damped cloth.

  • Page 118: Radar Basics, Strength Of Reflection From The Targets, Sea Clutters

    Principle SECTION 5 Radar Basics The role of radar operator is to analyze the echos on the screen to assist in proper navigation and safety of the vessel. To do the best job it is imperative to understand the operation including advantages and weaknesses of radar. The best way to learn is in good visibility conditions so proper comparisons can be made between visual sightings and the representations presented on the radar display.

  • Page 119: False Echoes

    False Echoes Shadows Owing to the location of a scanner, surrounding masts and structures may block the propagation of radar waves in those directions. This can be noticed by thin or weak shadow sectors in the nearby sea clutter returns. Since these shadows are fixed due to the physical surroundings on the vessel, it is necessary for the operator to be aware of them and realize that targets in those sectors may be weaker or blanked out.

  • Page 121: Gps/dgps Basics

    GPS/DGPS Basics The Navstar/GPS system is a satellite-based radio navigation system designed to provide global, continuous 24 hour-per-day, all weather, accurate position data for navigators. The GPS(Global Positioning System) is based on a GPS sensor’s ability to accurately measure the propagation time of signals transmitted from orbiting satellites in your sensor.

  • Page 122: Differential Gps (dgps)

    Differential GPS (DGPS) The differential GPS comprises a reference station with its position(latitude and longitude) accurately known, a beacon station for radio broadcasting of DGPS correction data, and user-owned GPS sensor equipped with a differential correcting function. The GPS sensor is used to fix the position of the reference station whose position is accurately known and to compare this with the actual reference station position to get range errors.

    GPS112W may be not available for use during the test transmission period due to system upgrades carried out to improve performance. JRC is not liable for any loss while using the WAAS satellites during test transmissions, or any malfunction of the GPS112W by the upgrades of WAAS system.

    Installation Setting Jumpers Table 1 is a summary of the operation of the display unit when the jumpers in the switchbox have been set. The mode for setting 1 or 2 can be selected depending on the jumper settings in the Interswitch box. The factory default setting is 2 (settings 3 and 4 are prohibited).

  • Page 127: Unit Connecting Cable

    Unit Connecting Cable Be sure that the positive and negative polarity for the power connected to both display units is the same. It is necessary to connect the 12 V connector and GND connector to the same terminal. The voltage is 12 V. Also, the switchbox is not sealed against leaks, be sure to install it indoors where it will not be splashed with seawater or liquids.

  • Page 128

    CAUTION Be sure to do connections to the same battery terminal even if it is a 12 volt boat. Particularly, when doing an in-line connection to a 12 volt battery on a 24 volt boat, be sure to connect both display units to only one battery. Connecting both display unit 1 and 2 to separate batteries by cause a serious accident.

    Operation The following is for the jumpers in the junction box. (Setting 1) TB1 = 1 - 2, TB2 1 - 2 Display unit 1 and display unit 2 can alternately use the antenna each time they are turned ON, whichever display unit is already ON is turned OFF. Example: Turning ON display unit 2 while display unit 1 is ON turns OFF the power to display unit 1.

  • Page 130

    CAUTION While one display unit is transmitting, and another display unit is turned ON, depending on the settings the power may be turned OFF. In cases like this, be sure that transmission status has changed to standby status, then turn ON the power to the other display unit.
