Advanced technologies for navigation safety

The Furuno FAR-22x8/23x8 series is a brand-new Radar series characterized by its state-of-the-art antenna design and innovative signal processing technologies. Furuno's latest, advanced technologies and intuitive design will increase situational awareness, facilitating unparalleled navigational safety.

Automatic Clutter Elimination (ACE) for unprecedented echo clarity

Quickly adjusts the Radar image with a single button press. When the ACE function is activated, the system automatically optimizes clutter reduction filters and gain control according to the sea and weather conditions.



Fast Target Tracking™ function provides early-stage collision avoidance

With Fast Target Tracking™ (TT), the FAR-22x8/23x8 series provides accurate tracking information; speed and course vectors are displayed in mere seconds allowing operators to take action and avoid incidents at a very early stage.

Exceptionally intuitive user interface

InstantAccess bar™ for quick access to your frequently used functions

Well-designed controllers for stress-free operation InstantAccess bar™ Radar function menu Display setting menu Screen image: Wide monitor MU-270W Exceptionally intuitive user interface InstantAccess bar™ contains shortcut menus for frequently used functions and actions, allowing for quick access to essential tasks.

Well-designed controllers for stress-free operation

Comfortable usability is very important on long voyages. With that in mind, these control units are designed based on ergonomics to comfortably accommodate the operator's hand. All operations can be controlled with the trackball.

Refined antenna with excellent reliability and easy maintenance

The FAR-22x8/23x8 series is designed to provide clearer and more accurate Radar images of the surroundings, while increasing reliability and decreasing overall cost of ownership with easy maintenance.

Signals are safely transported though the Ethernet network between the antenna and below deck processing unit, allowing for higher reliability. High quality images are obtained by the signal processor inside the antenna unit, directly converting analog to digital signals before sending them to the main processor unit.

The new antenna's refined shape significantly reduces aerodynamic drag and lightens the burden on the gear box.The gear box itself has also been redesigned. Decreased aerodynamic drag and a DC brushless motor result in a very durable gear box that can be used for a prolonged period of time.

Installation and maintenance are now easier than ever. All components of the gear box are integrated into one block that can easily be removed from the gear box when maintenance is required. The cable to the gear box can be connected from the side of the gear box.

Solid State Radar model - NXT - specializes in target detection and maintainability

Compared to the traditional Magnetron Radar, the Solid State Radar NXT Series provide highly reliable target detection while requiring low power.

  • Clear images

    Furuno Solid State Radar technology generates clear echo images, which allows users to obtain a clear picture of the area around their vessel, including weaker echoes from small crafts.
  • Reducing the time and cost for maintenance

    • No need to replace the magnetron
    • Removal of the consumable parts thanks to a fan-less antenna (S-band only)

Easy installation for new building as well as retrofits, with high flexibility

  • 27" wide monitor (model: MU-270W) selectable*

    With the expanded wide monitor, 9 TT data boxes will be displayed on the screen. The color contrast of the display is excellent so that Radar echo can be grasped at a glance.
    * FAR-23x8 series only
  • Existing monitor, control unit and cables can be used in retrofitting*

    * Only when retrofitting in lieu of FAR-2xx7 series
  • Optional LAN Signal Converter enables Ethernet communication

    Extension of the cable between antenna unit and processor unit utilizing existing cables when retrofitting is possible.
  • Ethernet connectivity with onboard system

    Ethernet expands the radar's capability with connection between either existing or newly installed systems, such as ECDIS and VDR.
  • With the optional Ethernet HUB, Inter-switch can be utilized

  • DVI-I cable is connectible to VDR in retrofitting

    How to connect VDR with FAR-22x8/23x8 series
    VR-7000/7000S Directly connect VDR with LAN or convert the RGB signal from a DVI-I port using video LAN converter, and input to the VDR.
    VR-3000/3000S Directly input the RGB signal from a DVI-I port to the VDR.
    Other manufacturer's VDR Please check with the VDR manufacturer to connect appropriately.


Wave Analyzer Software*

Wave Analyzer Software provides real-time measurement of wave height, direction and period by analyzing sea surface echoes received from the marine radar. The wave information ensures safety at sea, even at night.
* Compatible with X-band and S-band radar (both magnetron and solid state)

ICE mode*

ICE mode visualizes ice structures and find the best route through iced sea surface. Finding the optimum route to go through ice, the vessel consumes much less power and saves fuel and time.
* Compatible with X-band radar (both magnetron and solid state)
