Simrad has launched the R2009 & R3016 dedicated Radar Control Units with integrated 9-inch portrait and 16-inch widescreen display options.

They are compatible with a range of Simrad radar solutions including Halo™ Pulse Compression, Broadband 3G™/4G™ and HD Digital Radar.

The units are engineered to serve aboard coastal and offshore fishing vessels, crew boats, tugs and other workboats. They offer a professional-grade radar interface with versatile flush or bracket-mount installation options and intuitive keypad-based operation for reliable control in in rough seas, while travelling at speed and with wet or gloved hands. These units are well suited to a variety of applications such as navigation, docking, anti-collision and anti-piracy – providing an always-visible, easy-to-operate radar display.

The Radar Control Units connect to compatible Simrad radar systems via Ethernet, offering simple installation and easy networking of multiple control units and radar systems. The R3016 also provides four NMEA 0183® ports and NMEA 2000® connectivity for compatible devices such as heading and speed sensors, AIS, and GPS.
