Kelvin Hughes will be at MTB Workboats
- 19 Sep 2016
From 21st to 24th September, Kelvin Hughes will be at a Meet the Buyer event, MTB Workboats, which is being held at Tivoli Marina, Vilamoura in the Algarve.
The largest international networking forum in the workboat industry, the event attracts owners and operators from across Europe, the Middle East and Asia.
Kelvin Hughes has been supplying IMO type-approved radar to merchant ships and workboats since the 1940s, delivering reliability and low cost of ownership together with highly superior detection capability. During the course of MTB Workboats, the company will be holding a series of face-face meetings with senior decision makers from across the marine industry, promoting the new, recently launched range of Kelvin Hughes radar systems designed for commercial shipping.
The 12kW X-Band Upmast Magnetron Radar features improved target resolution and beam sharpening and represents a cost-effective, type-approved radar in a lightweight package. The increased gain and narrow beam width of the 12kV Magnetron Radar Antenna offers greater range and bearing resolution for improved performance and target separation. Designed for any vessel requiring IMO type-approved radar, including workboats, this compact lightweight radar system is easy to install with a single waterproof connector.
Also in the new range is the SharpEye™ S-Band radar that meets the challenges of safety, navigation and collision avoidance at sea through a clever combination of radar techniques designed to provide the best performance in all conditions. With its solid-state technology and a peak transmission power of less than 200W, its detection performance is equivalent to a 30kW magnetron radar. The radar performance is further increased by positioning the receiver upmast, thereby minimising signal loss in the waveguide as well as simplifying installation.
