Important Radar Information

Safe Emissions


Powerful enough to slice through atmospheric clutter, Raymarine radars still comfortably meet international limits for energy absorption - in fact, the energy absorbed from an ordinary mobile phone can be several times greater than that from a correctly installed Raymarine radar.




All radars work on line-of-sight principles so although antennas could theoretically be fitted almost anywhere, unobstructed and parallel to the water line is better.

Interference Resistance


Raymarine's radars use interference rejection technology to resist signal interference from other vessels' transmissions as well as close proximity objects already fitted to the boat.


Pulsed magnetron vs broadband (FMCW) radar technology


Broadband (FMC) radars typically emit low levels of energy, resulting in loss of ultimate performance in conditions of fog, rain, spray and snow, and limiting target detection at longer ranges.


Raymarine pulsed magnetron radars combine low average energy with high peak powers allowing the radar to detect targets at greater ranges, and to punch through adverse weather conditions ensuring targets are identified.

Raymarine radar antennas also trigger RACON beacons and home in on signals from Search And Rescue Transponders.
