    • Compatible with a wide range of Navico multi-function displays and heading sensors What is Broadband radar? The Navico Broadband Radar uses FMCW (Frequency Modulated Continuous Wave) radar technology.

  • Page 7: Additional Benefi Ts Of Fmcw Radar Are

    FMCW = Frequency Modulated Continuous Wave The scanner transmits a ‘rising tone’ (Tx wave) with linearly increasing frequency. The wave propagates out from the transmitter retaining the frequency it had when it was transmitted. If it refl ects off an object, it will return to the receiver, still at the frequency it had when originally transmitted.

  • Page 8: Radar System Overview

    Radar system overview The Broadband Radar is a state of the art navigation aid. It provides outstanding radar performance without the limitations of conventional pulse radars such as: dangerous high power microwaves, standby warm up time, 30 m blind spot (mainbang), high power consumption and large open arrays - which is what would be required to obtain the same image quality at shorter ranges.

    Installation  Note: Follow these instructions carefully. Don’t take any shortcuts! • The Broadband Radar is factory sealed. It is not necessary to remove the cover. • Removing the cover will void the factory warranty. Tools Required Drill Torque wrench Drill bit 9.5 mm (3/8”) Screw driver Choose the scanner location...

  • Page 20: Connect Power

    Connect power The Broadband Radar can operate on 12 or 24 V DC systems. The Broadband Radar requires +V DC to be applied on the yellow power on wire in order to operate. This can be achieved in one of three ways: 1.

  • Page 21: Setup And Confi Guration

    Setup and Confi guration Setup and confi guration of the Broadband radar has been simplifi ed compared to traditional pulse radars. There is no zero range adjustment (time delay), no warm up time, and no burn in required. The following sections cover the available adjustments. Note that the menu examples used are from the Simrad NSE.

  • Page 22: Adjust Bearing Alignment

    Adjust bearing alignment... Adjust the heading marker. This is to align with the heading marker on the screen with the center line of the vessel, this will compensate for any slight misalignment of the scanner during installation. Any inaccuracy will be evident when using MARPA or chart overlay. Point the boat to the end of a head land or peninsula.

  • Page 23: To Start The Radar

    To start the radar: From the radar screen select the Transmit button. RI10 heading source selection: The RI10 receives heading via SimNet or NMEA2000 network and transmits this data to the radar, where MARPA processing is performed. For Simrad installations with more than one SimNet heading source the RI10 will use the Simrad group source.

  • Page 24: Dual Range Setup

    Dual Range setup (Broadband 4G Radar only): With a Simrad NSE display connected to a Broadband 4G™ radar, it’s possible to run the radar in dual range mode. This allows two radar panels to be veiwed simultaneously, operating at diff erent ranges but with all image data supplied by one 4G scanner. Each displayed radar panel can track up to 10 MARPA targets - ability to acquire targets is range dependant.

  • Page 25: Maintenance

    Maintenance Clean the radome using soapy water and a soft cloth. Avoid using abrasive cleaning products. Do not use solvents such as gasoline, acetone, M.E.K etc. as this will damage the dome surface. After years of use the drive belt may have to be replaced. The transmitter in the Broadband Radar is solid state and will not require regular replacement as with an ordinary magnetron radar.
