The FURUNO DS-60 Doppler Sonar is a highly precise, 3-axis sonar system designed specifically for berthing and docking operations of large vessels. This advanced sonar complies with the strict standards set by IMO MSC.36(63), MSC.96(72), A.694(17), and A.824(19), making it suitable for container vessels, VLCCs, and other tankers with a gross tonnage of 50,000 and above. Featuring an 8.4-inch color LCD display, the DS-60 provides clear and comprehensive information presented in both alphanumerics and graphics. It offers three display modes: 3-axis speed, berthing, and NAV data, which can be easily switched using the optional remote controller. For wing installations, an IP56 waterproof box for the display is available as an optional accessory.
The DS-60 delivers accurate speed measurements over a wide range, considering the vessel’s movement relative to the ground or water in both fore-aft and port-starboard directions. This capability is crucial for precise docking maneuvers, navigating narrow channels or straits, and ensuring safe operations during low-speed situations. Additionally, the DS-60’s high-speed operation facilitates economical cruising in open seas. The system incorporates a compact and downsized transducer unit while maintaining the measurement accuracy of its predecessor, the DS-30. This reduction in size enables easier and more efficient installation, saving valuable time and space. The high-frequency transducer measures the ship’s longitudinal and transverse speed, as well as water speed and direction beneath the hull.
