Raymarine just introduced its new Cyclone series of solid-state, open-array radars at the Fort Lauderdale show.
The all-new CHIRP pulse compression radars come in 3-, 4- and 6-foot arrays, with two power options for each size: The Cyclone, with 55 watt, 6kW performance, and the Cyclone Pro, with 110 watt, 12kW performance. All the models have Raymarine’s new detection technology, including the Cyclone Bird Mode that will help anglers find the birds that lead to schools of baitfish.
The Cyclone radars have a new look, developed from an aircraft-wing design, and they also have a low profile, measuring just 13.2 inches high. Raymarine says they’re the lightest open-array radars on the market; indeed, the 3-foot model weighs just 51 pounds, so it can fit on a wide variety of boats.
The new radars have a wind rating of more than 100 knots, and a fast, 60-RPM rotational speed. They deliver 360-degrees of awareness at the helm, plus accurate tracing of more than 100 distinct targets in real time, even when the home vessel is traveling at full speed.
Raymarine says the new radars have precision imaging from CHIRP pulse compression. They also provide maximum visibility of both near and far targets, and provide a clear radar image.
All Cyclone models integrate with Raymarine Axiom, Axiom+, Axiom Pro, and Axiom XL multifunction displays. Prices range from $6,999.99 to $9,749.99, and all Cyclone models have a three-year warranty. Read more at http://raymarine.com, and see the video below:
