Simrad/B&G ForwardScan™ transducer kit with Sleeve and plug
The ForwardScan transducer operates at 180kHz to reduce interference from traditional 200kHz echosounders, and provides:
Maximum forward view of 8X your current depth
e.g. at 3m (10ft) depth, see up to 24m (80ft) ahead.
Nominal forward view of 4-5X your current depth
e.g. At 3m (10ft) depth, see 12-15m (40-50ft) ahead.
ForwardScan connects quickly and easily to any Simrad NSS evo2 multifunction display via the StructureScan port, with no additional hardware necessary. On B&G Zeus2, NSO evo2 modular systems, or NSS evo2 systems already using StructureScan, ForwardScan may be connected via an optional Simrad/B&G SonarHub sounder module. Unlike other forward looking sonar solutions this is fully integrated to the network allowing control and viewing of the ForwardScan™ information on multiple displays simultaneously and even via GoFree on a tablet.
Bottom Colour Tracking
Bottom Colour Tracking offers a solid 2D rendering of the bottom ahead of your vessel for an uncluttered, immediately understandable view. Make fast and well-informed navigational decisions, without needing to interpret the individual data points returned by the echosounder.
Heading Line View
Heading Line View integrates ForwardScan depth data with the heading line displayed on the navigation page of your Simrad MFD. The line is colour-coded in segments to represent deep, medium, and shallow water, with customisable depth ranges to suit your boat’s draught.
ForwardScan’s forward range scale is automatically synchronised with the length of the heading line: in split-screen ForwardScan/Navigation view, the full distance from your vessel to the end of the heading line is represented in 2D on the ForwardScan display. Quickly reconcile ForwardScan data with charted depth and your present course, for a comprehensive understanding of what’s ahead.
ForwardScan can be installed on almost any vessel, with 50.8mm (2”) stainless steel through-hull mount. The mount can accommodate 25.4mm (1”) thick hulls at 12° dead rise, or 19mm (3/4”) hulls at 20°.
