Sample system configuration

Sample system configuration

  • Sensor adapter facilitates installation and maintenance

    The sensor adapters act as central medium to gather all the sensor data and collectively feed it to ECDIS and Chart Radar in the system. Since the sensor adapters can be extended to cover all the sensors within the system, individual cablings in the sensor-to-ECDIS/Radar interface can be greatly reduced.

    Navigation sensors can be directly interfaced with the ECDIS processor’s 8 serial I/O ports.
    Sensor adapters are required under the following conditions

    Image of Sensor Adapter
    Sensor adapter(MC-3000S/3010A/3020D/3030D)
    • The sensor data is to be shared amongst multiple networked ECDIS and Radar systems.
    • The number of sensors interfaced is more than the number of the ports the processor has (8 serial I/O ports, 1 digital IN and 6 digital OUT), and/or
    • The networked sensors include analog sensors.

    In order to integrate onboard sensors into the navigation network, the sensor adapter may be interfaced with the inteligent hub HUB-3000 from which distribution of the sensor data throughout the network is possible.
    Alternatively, multiple sensor adapters may be interfaced via Ethernet to integrate onboard sensors for use in the shipboard network.


Instantaneous chart redraw delivered by FURUNO’s advanced chart drawing engine, making redraw latency a thing of the past


Based on nautical chart information and superimposed navigational information on the screen, it is possible to determine planned routes accurately and quickly

Detailed changes can be made easily, and navigation monitoring by displaying data from various sensors is supported.


Interface with FAR-2xx8 series Radar and FAR-2xx7 series Radar for Radar overlay, target track info, route and waypoint exchange via Ethernet

*Software update on FAR-21x7/FAR-28x7 series might be necessary depending on the program number.

27" wide LCD monitor (Model: MU-270W) selectable

  • Easy switching of the screen between DVI1 and DVI2 with a locally supplied switching box
  • Automatic switching the signal source from DVI1 to DVI2, when the DVI1 signal fails


Compatible Cartography

  • IHO/S-57 Edition 3 vector chart (IHO S-63 data protection scheme)
    • Admiralty Vector Chart Service (UKHO)
    • C-MAP CAES
    • Jeppesen Primar ECDIS Service


  • ARCS raster chart
  • C-MAP Professional+*
    *C-MAP Professional+ is a private chart, hence not construed as replacement for paper chart.

  • Compatibility with Admiralty Information Overlay (AIO)

Additional AIO layer includes all Admiralty Temporary and Preliminary Notices to Mariners as well as additional ENC Preliminary Notices to Mariners, i.e., reported navigational hazards that have been incorporated into paper chart but have yet to be included in ENCs. The service is free of charge as part of Admiralty Vector Chart Service (AVCS) by UKHO.

User Interface

Use of a new user interface system enables PC manipulation

ECDIS Control Units

The operator control of the FMD-3005 can be done with the ECDIS Control Unit RCU-024 or the Trackball Control Unit RCU-026. All functions of the ECDIS can be accessed by using the trackball, scrollwheel and left/right clicking.

  1. Press “EBL 1” and “EBL 2” to activate/deactivate respective EBL; and rotate the encoder to adjust active EBL.
  2. Rotate to adjust brilliance level of the FURUNO monitor; and press to select display palette.
  3. Rotate to adjust radar gain on the radar overlay.
  4. Press “VRM 1” and “VRM 2” to activate/deactivate respective VRM; and rotate the rotary encoder to adjust active VRM.
  5. For acknowledgement of alerts generated.
  6. Rotate to select items within the InstantAccess bar™; and press to confirm the selection of the item.
  7. Full QWERTY keyboard for easy entery of route, event and waypoint names.
  8. Following functions are assigned for each key:

    UNDOto undo the last operation
    RANGEto select chart scale

  9. Following functions are assigned for each key:

    VIEW/HIDEto show/hide the I.A. bar and route information window
    ACQ/ACTto activate selected active AIS target
    TARGET DATAto display the detailed target data for selected TT/AIS
    TARGET CANCELto sleep the selected active AIS target

  10. USB port for charts update, import/export, WP/routes, user setting.
  11. Trackball Module

    Trackball module consists of four parts, each of which has the following functions:

    trackballto move the cursor and select an object
    left-clickto perform/confirm the action related the selected object
    right-clickto display contextual menu while a cursor is on the display area, and to cancel action done on the selected object
    scrollwheelto select menu items


Contextual Menu
Right-clicking on the screen will open the contextual menu containing all the available actions related to the position of the cursor, i.e., chart object, data box, etc., hence providing quick access to tasks required.

Task-based user interface realized by combination of Status bar and InstantAccess bar™ providing quick access to the needed tasks/functions

The user interface of the FMD-3005 centers on carefully organized operational tools: Status bar and InstantAccess bar™.
The Status bar at the top of the screen contains information about the operating status, i.e., MFD operating mode, the ECDIS operation modes, etc. InstantAccess bar™ at the left-hand side of the screen contains all the tasks (functions/actions) corresponding to the ECDIS operation mode currently selected. These operational tools deliver straightforward, task-based operation by which the operator can quickly perform navigational task without having to go deeper into an intricate menu tree.
