                        Large 10.4-Inch Color Display, Dual-Range Display and Hyper Digital
Processing (HDP™) 
Among Features of This Advanced System

SI-TEX Marine Electronics has announced availability of the new-for-2011 Koden MDC-2000 Series Radar.  With a 10.4-inchcolor LCD display a long list of advanced features and a range of power outputs from 4kW to 12kW, this professional-grade radar series is ideal for a variety of vessels, from recreational yachts to commercial fishing boats to passenger transport vessels.  With a starting MSRP of $4,895, the Koden MDC-2000 Series is an affordable option for vessels wanting a trusted name, the latest technology and the backing of SI-TEX Marine Electronics’ trademark customer service.

Models include the MDC-2041 (4kW/32nm range), MDC-2040 (4kW/48nm range), MDC-2060 (6kW/64nm range) and MDC-2010 (12kW/72nm range).  Each of these units is designed with Koden’s Hyper Digital Processing (HDP™) technology, for real-time presentation of targets that allows for smooth movement on the display as the bearing changes. Real-time target detection and tracking is further enhanced by the MDC-2000’s
two-speed antenna scanning (25 and 50 rpm), providing optional performance at any vessel speed.  HVP technology also provides superior target discrimination, virtually eliminating unwanted “noise,” delivering a clear, highly detailed image and enhancing detection of smaller targets for added safety. Koden’s True Trail function clearly differentiates moving targets from stationary objects such as buoys, moored vessels or land features — great when navigating crowded waterways.

Koden’s proven Dual Range Display provides split screen displays of both long- and short-range targets simultaneously. This feature —like having two radars in one — enhances the navigator’s overall awareness of vessel traffic, potential dangers and his vessel’s relative position. Koden’s high-resolution LCD screen features a bonded anti-reflective coating that provides superior visibility in direct sunlight and prevents condensation.

The MDC-2000 Series provides a range of advanced functionalities for professional users, including standard 50-target ARPA function (with speed/bearing/heading data input) and optional AIS tracking of up to 100 targets at a time.   Each of these individual radar units accepts input from a CCD camera, allowing the navigator to closely monitor activities on or below decks at all times while underway.
