FE800 – Furuno Echo Sounder – Type Approved – IMO MED-B-9054
The FE800 is a result of Furuno’s many decades of experience developing echo sounders, sonars, and underwater application equipment and systems. Due to this this FE800 echo sounder is a breakthrough over the conventional paper sounders; there are no consumable items. The purpose of the echo sounder is to provide safe navigation by detecting the clearance below the ship (particularly in shallow waters). As required on the SOLAS Convention ships by the new IMO standards. The basic system consists of a display unit and distribution box. In addition the 8.4″ high-brightness color LCD display offers an easy-to-read depth sounding in various modes, permitting optimum representation with respect to the environment.
In The Box:
Display Unit – FE-8010-E
Distribution Box – FE-8020
Matching Box – MB502 (50 KHZ) or MB504 (200 KHZ)
Standard Installation Materials
Spare Parts and Accessories
The FE800 has two transducer options. Either a 50Khz or 200Khz transducer. The transducer does not come supplied with the FE800 but can be purchased separately
Visual And Audible Alerts
The FE800 generates alerts when the water depth below the transducer is shallower than the preset depth. Moreover when the seabed is lost due to the lowered power supply or out of range scale, an alert is generated. The receiver sensitivity is automatically controlled with the tracking depth; manual override is possible to improve the detection and to reduce the surface clutter.
FE800 Provides mission critical data at your fingertips
Own Ship Data
Connecting the FE800 to an external GPS allows it to display the vessel own ship data (OS Data).
Display a combination of Contour and Strata echo readings in preset intervals of 5 seconds, 1 minute or 2 minutes.
Display the stored time, depth and own ship position. The logbook is capable of storing data for up to 720 log entries.
Alert Log List
Displays up to 100 alerts stored in history.
