FURUNO ECDIS

FURUNO ECDIS FMD-3200 (with 19" LCD) and FURUNO FMD-3300 (with 23.1" LCD) deliver great enhancement in terms of user 
interface as well as functionality. The ECDIS employs intelligently arranged Graphic User Interface elements that deliver task-based operation 
scheme to give the operator direct access to necessary operational procedure.
Also, the new ECDIS utilises cutting edge chart-drawing engine that delivers instantaneous chart redraw with the seamless zooming and 
panning, hence making the ECDIS operation stress-free.
The ECDIS will also bring about streamlined chart management scheme providing easy chart management independent of the chart providers.
The ECDIS is compatible with Jeppesen Dynamic Licensing and it supports the Admiralty Information Overlay (AIO).
Fully complying with the performance standard of ECDIS stipulated in IMO resolution MSC.232(82), the ECDIS is going to be a suitable 
candidate designated for new installation as well as retrofit to fulfill ECDIS mandatory carriage that is phasing in from July 2012 onward.
Multifunction display capability, featuring ECDIS,Conning Information Display, Radar/Chart Radar* and Alert Management System**
  *a radar sensor needs to be integrated in the network.
** Radar and Alert Management System display capabilities are to be implemented as software update after product release. (option)

Sensor Adapter
Ease of installation and maintenance thanks to simplified cabling in the sensor-to-ECDIS/Radar interface delivered by common sensor adapter
Sensor Adapter acts as central medium to gather all the sensor data and collectively feed it to all FMD-3200/3300 ECDIS and FCR-2xx9 Chart 
Radar in the system.Since sensor adapter can be extended to cover all the sensors within the system, individual cablings in the sensor-to-
ECDIS/Radar interface can be greatly reduced.
Navigation sensors can be directly interfaced with the ECDIS processor's 8 serial I/O ports.
   Sensor adapters are required under the following conditions:
  • the sensor data is to be shared amongst multiple networked ECDIS and Radar systems,
  • the number of sensors interfaced is more than the number of the ports the processor has (8 serial I/O ports, 1 digital IN and 6 digital OUT), and/or
  • the networked sensors include analog sensors.
In order to integrate onboard sensors into the navigation network, the sensor adapter may be interfaced with the switching hub 
HUB-100 from which distribution of the sensor data throughout the network is possible.Alternatively, multiple sensor adapters may
be interfaced via Ethernet to integrate onboard sensors for use in the shipboard network.
