The centre of the beam can be set in 1 degree increments from 5 degrees from the horizontal, to 90 degrees from the sea surface.
The transducers ultra sonic beam sweeps a specific sector and bearing.
When pointing straight down, the beam will give a high definition picture of the sea floor. As the beam moves from the perpendicular to the horizontal, bottom definition reduces and fish detection improves.
SEARCHING ALL AROUND
The horizontal scan (sonar mode) can search through a full 360 degree or search a selection of up to 16 different sectors using a 5- or 10-degree beam width.
The new JFP-180BB incorporates a highly reliable industry standard interfacing field. Connect additional navigation equipment, such as GPS, which provides on-screen the exact location of this vessel. It also shows the track line of the vessels’ bow wake (wave that relatively spreads out in the rear of the vessel), initially saved every 2 seconds.
SIMPLE AND PRECISE OPERATION
The new searchlight sonar allows you to carry out all operations simply by using the keyboard.
The layout has a full complement of keys, including direct tilting, hoist control, and special one-touch menu keys to access different scanning modes on screen. This makes it easy to navigate through all common used tasks.
The logic of the controls and excellent on-screen menus will greatly shorten most users’ learning period.
