Furuno FSV 35 and FSV-85 Sonars
The FSV Series of Furuno Scanning Sonar provides reliable and consistent detection of fish and seabed conditions by using enhanced signal processing technology.
To make operations even easier while underway, it is possible to assign frequently used features to the FSV-35/85’s dedicated Function keys. Preset modes are also provided for instant setup of the equipment.
- Dual Monitors.
The FSV-35/85 has an ability to use a dual monitor setup to extend the sonar display across two screens.
- Horizontal Display Combinations (H2 mode).
The horizontal display mode provides a 360-degree picture around the vessel.
- Slant Mode Scan (For FSV-85 only).
The slant mode provides a half-circle (180 degree) picture with the ship at the center.
- Horizontal and Vertical Display Combinations.
A horizontal and two vertical scans can be displayed simultaneously. By utilizing both scans, the skipper can locate a school of fish and its distribution in horizontal and vertical perspectives at the same time.
Combining the latest digital technology with a high-sensitivity transducer, the FSVx5 provides long-range detection capability and high resolution sonar imagery. The FSVx5 incorporates a digital filter responsive to the interfering noise, providing a clear view of the display at high speed (18 knots) without affecting the sonar.
Beam stabilization mode maintains the sonar beam at required tilt angle by compensating for ship’s pitching and rolling. This gives an unwavering presentation of the echo images even in rough seas.
User-Friendly Programmable Controls
To make operation even easier while underway, you can assign frequently used features to the FSVx5’s dedicated Function keys. Preset modes are also provided for instant setup of the equipment according to fishing ground or target species. The User Program Control provides for instant setup of the equipment according to fishing ground or target fish. Ten programs may be set up, and vertical and horizontal display settings may be programmed together or individually. In addition, there are Function Keys at the bottom row of the control unit for you to assign up to 10 frequently used functions.
Multiple Display Modes
The operator can set up the FSVx5 with two independent Horizontal displays (H1 & H2). It’s like having two sonars in one; one display can be set up using a long range/shallow tilt while the second display could have a shorter range/steeper tilt, thus giving the operator two different views of fish schools. In single screen presentation, a horizontal and two vertical scans can be displayed simultaneously. By utilizing both scans, the skipper can locate a school of fish and its distribution in horizontal and vertical perspectives at the same time.
