    9-inch Portrait Radar Control Unit

    With a compact 9-inch display in portrait orientation, the R2009 maximises screen size where limited mounting space is available. The vertical presentation allows for a radar PPI almost the full width of the screen; alarms, indicators, and target tracking information are shown in widescreen panels above and below the main radar display. The R2009 is ideal for outside use, with an ultra-bright backlight for sunlight visibility.

    Rugged Design with Flexible Mounting Options

    The R2009 may be flush mounted, ideal for installation aboard new vessels. Alternatively, the included gimbal bracket is well suited to outside installations or pilothouse refits. With watertight rear connectors, the R2009 is IPX7 water-resistant from all sides, in either flush or bracket-mount installation.

    Keypad Operation with Direct-Access Menu Keys

    The R2009 is operated by an integrated keypad and rotary dial. Direct-access menu keys beside the display operate adjacent on-screen menu options, for quick and intuitive access to key settings and features. With reliable, long-life operation and clear tactile feedback, the R2009’s large buttons are suitable for use in rough seas, while travelling at speed, and with wet or gloved hands.

    Networking & Expansion

    The R2009 Radar Control Unit connects to compatible Simrad radar systems via Ethernet, offering simple installation and easy networking of multiple control units and radar systems. The R2009 also includes dual NMEA 0183® ports and NMEA 2000® connectivity for compatible devices such as heading and speed sensors, AIS, and GPS.
