RBM-3 Radar Beacon

The RBM-3 is a latest-generation (frequency-agile) Radar Beacon, which works in the marine X and S radar bands, providing an important information to mariners under whatever meteorological conditions.

The RBM-3 benefits from the latest electronic technologies like field programmable timers. The Racon actively answers all active radars in the vicinity with a user programmed Morse code which identifies its location by appearing on the radar display.

Designed according to IALA Recommendations and IMO Standards.

PRODUCT CHARACTERISTICS

  • Response on X and S bands.
  • Advanced Side-Lobe Suppression system (SLS) to better discriminate the genuine pulses to be responded.
  • The length of the Morse code response matches the display range setting by programming the duration of the answer according to the pulse length before installation.
  • Transmitter power: 1W in both bands.
  • Configurable receiver sensitivity.
  • RS-232 communication serial port.
  • Configuration via PC.
  • Wide power supply range.
  • Low power consumption.
  • Light weight.
  • Maintenance free.
  • ATEX version as an option.

RBM-3-Explosion Proof Radar Beacon

The RBM-3-Explosion Proof is a latest-generation (frequency-agile) Radar Beacon, which works in the marine X and S radar bands, with ATEX Classification to be installed in hazardous areas, such as offshore platforms.

The RBM-3-Ex benefits from the latest electronic technologies applied to AtoN radar systems, such as field programmable arrays and programmable timers.

The Racon actively answers all active radars in the vicinity with a user programmed Morse code which identifies its location by appearing on the radar display.

Designed according to IALA Recommendations and IMO Standards.
