R5027 25U/6X CAT 1 Radar

SKU: 000-14620-001

This X-Band radar system meets type approval standards for use aboard CAT 1 SOLAS vessels. Accurately detect, differentiate, and track targets with a 6-foot open array and 25 kilowatt up-mast transceiver. A modern interface and intuitive controls offer ease of use, while a modular design enables simple and flexible installation.

Product details

Type-Approved X-Band Radar
X-Band radar delivers high-resolution coverage with optimal target separation. This complete system meets type approval standards for use aboard CAT 1 SOLAS vessels, including high speed craft, and includes a 6-foot open array antenna with 25 kilowatt up-mast transceiver. The up-mast design supports easy and cost-effective installation, with just two thin cables between the antenna and the rest of the system. Cable runs of up to 65 metres are supported, and a digital connection between the transceiver and control station ensures a crystal clear picture.

Easy to Learn and Operate
Our R5000 systems are designed for ease of use, and feature a modern interface with intuitive keypad and trackball controls. The R5027 includes a 27-inch widescreen display to give operators constant access to key information, alerts, and settings without distracting from the central PPI. The same interface is used across our complete series of X-Band and S-Band solutions, offering a consistent experience for operators of multi-radar systems.

Simple and Flexible Installation
This modular system is based on the R5000 radar processor: a high performance ‘black-box’ system that connects directly to the transceiver via a thin and easy-to-route Ethernet cable. The R5000’s compact design enables easy installation, even aboard smaller vessels. Multiple R5000 processors can be networked together to create multi-radar systems, including up to four radar transceivers, four individual control stations, and additional ‘clone’ stations. In a fully networked system any station can control any connected radar system, offering both flexibility and redundancy.

Minimum product requirements

Additional hardware such as position and heading sensors may be required. Multi-radar or multi-station systems may require a network switch.
