Radar is one of the most important devices in any type of water transport. It is very important to choose a reliable and functional radar that will become a long-lasting companion on your travels.
Today we are going to take a look at the B&G HALO radar. This company, in particular, has established itself in the market as a manufacturer of reliable equipment for both yachts and other types of ships.
HALO line update
These devices are 20 inches in diameter and weigh just 11 pounds. The HALO 20+, in particular, provides a full 360-degree all-round view. This is made possible by a rotation speed of 60 rpm and sensitive sensors. These sensors have a maximum range of up to 1.5 nautical miles.
By the way, such technical characteristics give sailors the opportunity to observe the situation at close range in almost real time. This will definitely avoid collisions with other fast moving boats.
Why do people love HALO?
B&G radars are valued for their reliability and durability. Specifically, the HALO line enables clear and fast monitoring of everything that happens overboard.
The new HALO pulse compression radars provide maximum detection of other ships or obstacles. Whether you are racing or cruising in difficult conditions, through fog, iceberg fields or at night, this radar comes in handy.
The radar has several interesting and very useful functions. Here is some of them:
- VelocityTrack collision avoidance technology: instantly identifies hazards. VelocityTrack determines the distance to traffic clutter.
- MARPA technology - with its help it is possible to track several targets simultaneously. It determines the number and range of objects at close, medium and long range.
- InstantOn will extend the life of your device and help you switch from standby to active mode very quickly.
- Simple Custom Modes - Harbor, Marine, Weather, and Bird modes provide clear displays of targets. The radar adjusts to different conditions using these modes.
