R3016 Radar Control Unit


Designed to meet the needs of offshore cruisers, sport fishing vessels and commercial vessels, the Simrad R3016 is a dedicated radar control unit equipped with a 16 inch widescreen display. The unit is compatible with a range of Simrad radar solutions including Halo™ Pulse Compression, Broadband 3G/4G and HD Digital Radar. The R3016 features a high-definition 16-inch widescreen display, providing a large and detailed radar picture that’s perfect for navigating crowded marinas and waterways, choosing a fishing spot or watching far-off weather cells develop. The widescreen layout offers ample display space for alarms, indicators and target tracking information, and makes it easy to use the on-screen menus without having to hide the radar picture.

Bells and whistles: The R3016 supports flush-mount installation in a console or dash, or bracket-mount installation with an included gimbal bracket. The R3016 is IPX6 water-resistant from all sides, in either type of installation. The Radar Control Unit connects to compatible Simrad radar systems via Ethernet, allowing for the networking of multiple control units and radar systems. The system also provides four NMEA 0183 and NMEA 2000 ports for compatible devices such as heading and speed sensors, Automatic Identification System and GPS.

Display it: Connect a Simrad MO-series marine monitor or other compatible display to the R3016’s HDMI output to create a secondary radar display mirroring the built-in screen. Add a second non-interactive radar display at another station, or combine an extra display with the optional Simrad O2000 wired remote to create a fully functional ‘clone station’ ideal for dual-helm vessels.
