The Koden MDC-2040A series marine radar presents performance and functions of larger professional grade radars. The series features sophisticated Hyper Digital Processing (HDP™) technology for real time presentation and superior target discrimination. The superior target discrimination virtually eliminates unwanted noise to provide a clearer detailed image of targets and enhances the detection of smaller targets. Also various functions on the compact body are of considerable use for both fishing and leisure boats.
Koden MDC-2040A series marine radar features:
True trail function
The display shows the precise movement of other vessels like drawing tails, while land and buoys are shown as stationary objects even while your vessel is moving. This makes it easy for you to distinguish moving targets from stationary objects.
Dual range display
Exclusive dual range radar feature lets you view split-screen display of both long and short-range targets simultaneously. It's like having two radars in one.
CCD camera input
Accepts CCD camera input, with which you can watch above deck and below deck any time you are steering.
ATA with up to 50 targets (optional)
The convenient ATA (Automatic Tracking Aid) function comes as option. The latest movements of other vessels can be shown instantaneously in vector and numeric form, ensuring safe navigation. If the automatic acquisition zone is set, the targets (up to 50) entering the zone will be locked on automatically.
AIS interface with up to 100 targets (optional)
When connected with an AIS receiver, the radar displays information on up to 100 targets including the name, heading, and speed of each vessel with an AIS transmitter mounted.
The MDC-2040A series LCD displays are directly bonded with an anti-reflective coating to increase visibility under direct sunlight and also prevent condensation. The picture moves smoothly in proportion to changing bearing, displaying smooth, real-time head-up indication. The MDC-2040A series marine radar can be connected to an external monitor via an RGB output. You can monitor the Radar even when you are away from steering.
