Simrad ForwardScan® Thru-Hull Forward-Looking Sonar Transducer and Housing Kit 000-11674-001
See what lies ahead. ForwardScan provides forward-looking, two-dimensional sonar views of the bottom ahead of your boat. ForwardScan® is a powerful defense against running aground, and an invaluable tool for locating secure sites to drop anchor.
The ForwardScan transducer operates at 180kHz to reduce interference from traditional 200 kHz sonar, and provides a maximum forward view of eight times your current depth, so you'll see up to 80' ahead in water 10' deep.
The Nominal forward view is 4 to 5 times your current depth e.g. at 10' depth, you'll see 40 to 50' ahead.
Simple to install using a standard 2"dia. stainless steel thru-hull housing, the transducer plug can be removed for servicing with the boat in the water. Transmits and receives up to 10 times faster than previous forward-looking systems, and networks with compatible displays.
The ForwardScan Forward-Looking Sonar Transducer is Simrad NSS evo2, NSO evo2 Series, and B&G Vulcan FS or Zues2 compatible, and displays a clear image of the bottom ahead of you vessel.
ForwardScan connects quickly and easily to any Simrad NSS evo2 multifunction display via the StructureScan port, with no additional hardware necessary. On NSO evo2 modular systems, or NSS evo2 systems already using StructureScan, ForwardScan may be connected via an optional Simrad SonarHub sounder module.
Bottom Color Tracking offers a solid 2D rendering of the bottom ahead of your vessel for an uncluttered, immediately understandable view. Make fast and well-informed navigational decisions, without needing to interpret the individual data points returned by the sonar.
Heading Line View integrates ForwardScan® depth data with the heading line displayed on the navigation page of your Simrad multi-function display. The line is color-coded in segments to represent deep, medium, and shallow water, with customization of depth ranges to suit your boat's draft.
ForwardScan's forward range scale is automatically synchronized with the length of the heading line: in split-screen ForwardScan/Navigation view, the full distance from your vessel to the end of the heading line is represented in 2D on the ForwardScan display. Quickly reconcile ForwardScan data with charted depth and your present course, for a comprehensive understanding of what's ahead.
ForwardScan® can be installed on almost any vessel, with the 50.8mm (2") stainless steel through-hull mount. The mount can accommodate 25.4mm (1") thick hulls at 12° dead rise, or 19mm (3/4") hulls at 20°. Transducer has a 1-3/4" projection below the hull.
