The FEA-2107 is FURUNO’s new ECDIS (Electronic Chart Display and Information System), which has been designed to fully comply with the latest standards and resolutions set by IMO, IHO and IEC. The electronic chart is compatible with ENC (S57 Edition 3) charts, C-Map CM93 ed3* and ARCS charts (RASTER CHARTS). Where the ENC chart is not available, the ARCS chart is used instead. Instant conversion is assured, as both chart databases are stored on the ECDIS memory.
State-of-the-art technology has been utilized for high-speed stress-free data processing of chart and navigational data, which are overlaid on the chart. The navigational data includes: AIS and ARPA targets as well as a variety of other navigation information such as position, course, and speed. In the presentation of chart data, faster chart drawing and swift switching for presentation on/off of navigational data can be performed. When planning the voyage route, this gives quick route profile calculation and voyage optimization and continuous monitoring of huge navigational data, user actions and performance of the system.
The FEA-2107 can be interfaced with up to four sets of radar/ARPA FAR-21x7/28x7 by using of 100 Base-T Ethernet network. This allows high-speed data transfer and data sharing for navigational data within the network, which simplifies the system integration and the expandability of the system. The shared data can be accepted in both serial and analog format.
For the display units, the FEA-2107 uses a 20.1" SXGA LCD. These high-resolution units provide clear and sharp pictures for comfortable observation. The presentation colors can be selectable from five patterns according to the ambient conditions of the bridge area for optimal viewing around the clock. The ergonomically designed control panel consisting of a keyboard, the trackball, thumbwheel and mouse buttons facilitates intuitive and comfortable operation.
