Furuno is pleased to introduce the latest addition to our multi-beam Echo Sounder product lineup, the DFF-3D. The DFF-3D Network Multi-Beam Sonar is an innovative sonar which depicts seabed profile and fish locations in 3D forms, utilizing new multi-beam technology.
Connecting with TZtouch/ TZtouch2 multi function displays, the DFF-3D shows 120-degrees port to starboard, allowing you to see the depth and direction where fish schools are moving, while displaying the seabed condition in real time.
The DFF-3D also has various display modes to fit your needs, including, Cross Section, 3D Sounder History, Triple/ Single Beam Sounder and Side Scan. Depending on the situation and preference, combinations of screen modes can be displayed simultaneously. The built-in motion sensor (standard supply) stabilizes the display to give clear and stable images, even under rough sea conditions.
