The FURUNO CI-68 is a new Doppler Sonar Current Indicator designed for various types of fish and hydrographic survey vessels. The CI-68 displays tide speed and direction at three depth layers and ship’s speed on a high definition 10.4'' color LCD. Using this information, you can predict net shape and plan when to throw your net.
The CI-68 uses a triple-beam emission system providing highly accurate current measurement. This system greatly reduces the effects of rolling, pitching and heaving motions, providing a continuous display of tide information. When ground (bottom) reference is not available acoustically in deep water, the CI-68 can provide true tide current information by receiving position and speed data from a GPS navigator and heading data from the satellite (GPS) compass SC-50/110 or gyrocompass. In addition, navigation information, including position, course and ship’s track, can also be displayed.
The CI-68 consists of a display unit, processor unit and transducer. The control unit and display unit can be installed separately for flexible installation. A BlackBox configuration (without monitor) is also available. CI-60G users can easily upgrade without drydocking to CI-68 since it uses the same transducer as the CI-60G.
