1.2 System Diagram
The figure below shows the system diagram for the RC-1800F/1800T. The RC-1800 series
GMDSS Radio Station consists of two models' RC-1800F (floor deck mount) and 1800T (tabletop
mount). Equipment are controlled using FURUNO’s radio interface protocol called MIF (see
note below).
The type and number of the component differ from set to set.
Note: MIF is a handshaking type signal exchange protocol developed by FURUNO for remote
control of radio equipment. In the RC-1800F/1800T, for example, the MF/HF DSC terminal
can automatically set the frequency on the SSB Radiotelephone.

1.3 Equipment Description
Regulations require that all equipment be powered while the vessel is underway.
SSB Radiotelephone
For ship-ship and ship-station radio communications in the MF/HF band (1.6-26.175 MHz),
the main communications modes are;
• Voice communications (J3E) via the handset
• DSC communications (Telex:J2B) by the MF/HF DSC terminal
• Telex communications by the NBDP terminal (J2B)
DSC and NBDP functions may or may not be incorporated in the SSB radiotelephone depinding
on radiotelephone used.
MF/HF DSC Terminal
DSC function is incorporated in SSB Radiotelephone. However DSC terminal may also carry
the DSC function.
The MF/HF DSC Terminal has many functions. Below are its main functions.
• Distress alert: Transmit the distress alert via the SSB Radiotelephone.
• Watches DSC distress and safety frequencies. The MF/HF DSC Terminal receives distress
alert from vessel in distress and all ships call (safety and urgent call) from ship or coast
station.
• All Ships Call: For urgent situation on own ship (for example, request for medical assistance).
• Individual Call: Place a call to a specific ship or coast station.
NBDP Terminal
NBDP function is incorporated in the SSB radiotelephone. However, NBDP terminal may
also carry the NBDP function.
The NBDP Terminal provides Telex communications with coast stations over the MF/HF
band via the SSB Radiotelephone. Furthermore, it can receive MSI (Maritime Safety Information) messages via the SSB Radiotelephone (Scan reception).
Note) NBDP Terminal is not incorporated in the dual Inmarsat C type radio rack console.
Inmarsat-C Mobile Earth Station
Provides distress and general Telex communications for mobile and fixed terrestrial subscribers in the Inmarsat-C communications network. Telex messages are processed by what is known
as store-and-forward Telex. A Telex message transmitted by you arrives at a coast station where
it is stored temporarily and then delivered to the subscriber specified. (Full duplex communications are not possible.)
AC/DC Power Supply
The AC/DC Power Supply consists of a battery charger and two rectifiers (PR-850AR and PR300) which can accept both AC and DC powers (RC-1800F only). For RC-1800T the AC/DC
Power Supply is installed externally. In the event of main AC power failure, auxiliary power
(battery) provides power to the equipment, for the amount of time stipulated by radio regulations.
1–3
1.4 Mutual Operation of Equipment
As noted earlier, the equipment in this radio console are interfaced by FURUNO's MIF radio
interface. For example, to transmit a message over the MF/HF DSC Terminal or NBDP Terminal, the Tx and Rx frequencies and class of emission are automatically set on the SSB Radiotelephone and then the message is transmitted.
Two printers are supplied and one is dedicated to the Inmarsat C. The other printer is shared by
up to four units: MF/HF DSC Terminal, NBDP Terminal, and external VHF DSC (maximum
two sets, option). It is automatically connected to one of those equipment on a first-come-firstserved basis. For example, if the MF/HF DSC Terminal is used (message transmission or reception), the printer is automatically connected to the MF/HF DSC Terminal and disconnects itself
from other equipment.
Connection between MF/HF DSC Terminal and NBDP Terminal
Suppose you transmitted a call over the MF/HF DSC Terminal and want to communicate with
the receiving station by the NBDP Terminal instead of the SSB Radiotelephone. If the MF/HF
DSC Terminal and NBDP Terminal were not connected you would have to set the several data
such as working frequency, communication mode, etc. manually on the NBDP Terminal. Because they are connected by the remote function, however, the data mentioned above are automatically set on the NBDP Terminal via the MF/HF DSC Terminal.
1.5 Power On/Off

• OFF: Disconnects the charger from the radio battery.
1)Care of the battery
The lead-acid battery powers the radio console when the ship’s mains power and
emergency power fail, to enable communication in the event of distress. Therefore,
follow the points mentioned below to keep the battery in good working order.
WARNING
Do not remove or disassemble
the safety tap of the lead-acid battery.
Removal may cause the battery to explode,
lower its performance or shorten its life.
The temperature of the electrolyte in
the lead-acid battery should keep
between -15°C and 45°C.
The electrolyte can cause explosion if it
becomes too hot.
2-2
2) Confirming charging
Confirm that the BATTERY CHARGER switch on the Control Panel is set to AUTO.
Further, confirm that the voltage shown on the battery voltage meter on the Control
Panel is normal (between 26.5 VDC and 27.0 VDC).
3) Cleaning
The battery and the area around it should always be clean and dry. Clean the
battery case with a water-moistened cloth. Do not use organic solvents, thinner,
gasoline, benzine or alcohol to clean the battery. (They may crack the case.) For
heavy dirt, clean the case with white kerosene.
4) Environmental conditions
• Keep the battery out of direct sunlight.
• Coat the nuts and bolts which tighten the battery contacts with anticorrosive paint.
Check the battery once a year, retighten nuts and bolts if necessary.
Flooded lead-acid battery (traditional battery)
Turns the battery charger on/off.
• AUTO: Automatically turns on the battery when the battery voltage is below 25.0 VDC
and turns it off when the voltage exceeds 28.0 VDC. While the vessel is
underway, set the switch in this position.
• OFF: Disconnects the charger from the radio battery.
• MANUAL: Charges the battery manually.
NOTE: When the charging current falls below 2A, wait for about 10 hours and then turn
off the switch. (For details, see the manual for the lead-acid battery.)
1) Charging the battery
Before operating the radio, check the voltage and current of the battery. When the
BATTERY CHARGER on the Control Panel is set to AUTO, the battery voltage is
kept between 25.0 VDC and 28.0 VDC. If the BATTERY CHARGER switch is kept in
the OFF position for a long time the voltage may fall below 24 VDC. In this case,
charge the battery as follows.
1. Set the BATTERY CHARGER switch to MANUAL.
The charging current is around 20 A at the start, and is reduced gradually as
charging proceeds.
2. When the charging current goes below 2 A, wait for about 10 hours and then turn
the BATTERY CHARGER switch off or set it to AUTO.
NOTE: When the AC power fails, the radio battery automatically supplies power to
the radio regardless of BATTERY CHARGER switch position. The battery
will not discharge as long as the AC power is alive.
2) Care of the battery
The lead-acid battery powers the radio console when the ship’s main power and
emergency power fail, to enable communication in the event of distress. Therefore,
follow the points mentioned below to keep the battery in good working order.
2-3
WARNING
Keep sparks and lit smoking materials
away from the lead-acid battery. Make sure
the battery room is well ventilated.
The battery emits hydrogen gas which can
cause explosion.
The electrolyte in the lead-acid battery
contains sulfuric acid, which can be
harmful to the human body, particularly
to the eyes.
If sulfuric acid contacts eyes, skin or clothing,
flush directly with water. For eyes, contact a
physician. Loss of eyesight can result.
The temperature of the electrolyte in the
lead-acid battery should not exceed 45°C.
The electrolyte can cause explosion if it
becomes too hot.
3) Confirming charging
Confirm that the BATTERY CHARGER switch on the Control Panel is set to AUTO.
Further, confirm that the voltage shown battery voltage meter on the Control Panel
shows is normal (between 25.0 VDC and 28.0 VDC).
4) Check the specific gravity of electrolyte
Keep the specific gravity of electrolyte within 1.240 ± 0.010 (20°C).
5) Water supply
The optimum electrolyte level is such that water fills to the highest graduation on the
scale at the side of the battery case. When the electrolyte level falls below the
highest graduation, fill to the highest graduation with distilled water. Do not use
diluted sulfuric acid or tap water; they will shorten battery life.
6) Cleaning
The battery and the area around it should always be clean and dry. Clean the battery
case with a water-moistened cloth. Do not use organic solvents, thinner, gasoline,
benzine or alcohol to clean the battery. (They may crack the case.) For heavy dirt,
clean the case with white kerosene.
7) Environmental condition
• Keep the battery out of direct sunlight.
• Coat the nuts and bolts which tighten the battery contacts with
anticorrosive paint. Check the battery once a year, retighten nuts and bolts if
necessary.
