Raymarine Magnum High-Performance Marine Radar


THE Raymarine Magnum high-performance open array radar was announced recently. It includes many of the same radar technologies trusted by the United States Coast Guard, and offers enhanced target tracking, reliable performance, and superior image detail packaged in a sleek open array pedestal built to withstand the harsh marine environment.

Magnum is available in 4 kW or 12 kW power output options, with either a 4 foot or 6 foot antenna array. Magnum offers a maximum target identification range up to 96 nm for 12 kW models – ideal for blue water vessels – and up to 72 nm for 4 kW models. The perfect companion to Raymarine’s award-winning Axiom and Axiom Pro multifunction navigation displays running LightHouse 3, Magnum is also compatible with LightHouse 2 based Raymarine MFDs.

Featuring an advanced automatic bird mode that gives captains the ability to see birds with greater accuracy at distances of up to 10 nm, Magnum helps anglers locate schooling baitfish faster, which helps save fuel. Magnum radar also adds Raymarine beam sharpening technology, delivering better than 1 degree bearing resolution for more detailed target separation, map-like coastal detail, and superior long-range performance. Additionally, Magnum’s enhanced mini-automatic radar plotting aid (MARPA) offers accurate and reliable target tracking, giving captains added confidence and peace-of-mind when navigating busy waterways.

 “We are excited to bring our Magnum open array radar to market,” said Gregoire Outters, Vice President and General Manager of FLIR Maritime. “Fishermen will love Magnum’s enhanced automatic bird mode, while captains will appreciate Magnum’s clarity, detail, and improved target separation.”

Magnum models will be available worldwide in the second quarter of 2018 through Raymarine’s authorised network of dealers and retailers starting at $6,999 RRP. For more information, click HERE
