HDS Gen2 Touch overview
The HDS-7, HDS-9, and HDS-12 Gen2 Touch multifunction displays
are available with or without inbuilt sonar and structure scan. The
ability to network over NMEA 2000 and ethernet allows access
to data as well as control of numerous optional devices that can
provide sonar, radar, audio entertainment, weather and even digital
switching.
All displays are charting ready, with built-in GPS receiver and Insight
cartography (region dependent) and with optional Navionics
support via an SD card slot.
The displays may be mounted on to the vessel with the supplied
surface mount bracket, or flush mounted in to the dash.
Power should be supplied at around 12V, but due to the variable
nature of boat power systems, the displays are designed to operate
on 10.8 V - 17 V.

Display Installation
Mounting location
Choose the mounting locations carefully before you drill or cut.
The display should be mounted so that the operator can easily use
the controls and clearly see the display screen. Be sure to leave a
direct path for all of the cables. Lowrance displays are high-contrast
and anti-reflective, and are viewable in direct sunlight, but for best
results install the display out of direct sunlight. The chosen location
should have minimal glare from windows or bright objects.
Ensure that any holes cut are in a safe position and will not weaken
the boat’s structure. If in doubt, consult a qualified boat builder.
Before cutting a hole in a panel, make sure that there are no hidden
electrical wires or other parts behind the panel.
Do not mount any part where it can be used as a hand hold, where
it might be submerged, or where it will interfere with the operation,
launching or retrieving of the boat.
If bracket mounting the display, choose an area where the display
will not be subjected to excessive vibration.
The mounting location will affect the internal GPS receiver. Test the
unit in it’s intended location to ensure satisfactory reception. An
external GPS source may be added to overcome poor reception
areas.
Leave sufficient clearance to connect all relevant cables.
Good ventilation is required. Inadequate ventilation may cause the
display to overheat. Lowrance displays are designed to operate in
temperatures from -15° C to +55° C (+5° F to +131° F).
For overall width and height requirements, please see the
dimensions section on page 29.
! Warning: When installing the displays, ensure appropriate
safety equipment is used, eg. ear muffs, protective glasses, gloves
and a dust mask.
Power tools may exceed safe noise levels, and can cast off
dangerous protectiles.
The dust from many materials commonly used in boat
construction may cause irritation or damage to eyes, skin, and
lungs.

Bracket mounting
Place the bracket in the desired mounting location, and use a pencil
or permanent marker to mark drilling locations.
¼¼ Note: ensure that the chosen location has enough height to
accomodate the display fitted in the bracket, and allows tilting of
the display. Also adequate space is required on both sides to allow
tightening and loosening of the knobs.
Use fasteners suited to the mounting surface material. If the material
is too thin for self tappers, reinforce it, or mount bracket with
machine screws and large washers. Use only 304 or 316 stainless
steel fasteners. Mark the screw locations using bracket as template,
and drill pilot holes.
Screw down the bracket.
12 |
Mount the display to the bracket using the knobs. Hand tighten
only. The ratchet teeth in the bracket and display case ensure a
positive grip and prevent the unit changing from the desired angle.

Cut away excess paper, and tape down the template. Check it is
correctly aligned to a vertical or horizontal reference. Do not use a
bubble level as vessel may be listing! Adjust where required.
Drill all marked pilot holes, then using an appropriate saw, cut
through the template and mounting surface, along the dotted line
bordering the shaded center of the template.
Remove the bezel from the display, using a fingernail or small flat
screwdriver, starting at the edges that are closest to the card reader
door.
Check the fit of the display, and use a file to remove any remaining
obstructions. If water-tightness is required, apply a thin, continuous
bead of sealant to the back of the display prior to final installation.
Sealant should be of a ‘neutral cure’ type to prevent damage to
the plastics. Secure the display with the supplied screws. Once
screws are fully tightened, ensure there is complete contact with
the mounting surface. Lastly, fit the bezel with the card reader door
open; insert the outermost tabs on the bezel in to the slots on the
display, then gently press down the bezel above and below the card
reader door till it clicks in to place.

Mounting the transducer
Transducer location selection and installation are two of the
most critical steps in sonar installation. To function properly the
transducer must be in the water at all times, and in a location that
has a smooth flow of water when the boat is moving.
Research
Before starting the installation of the transducer, it’s advised to
check the following;
• Find out if the boat builder has a recommended installation location
• Establish direction of rotation of the propeller(s)
• Watch actual water flow when boat is travelling at cruising speed to
determine the area of transom with cleanest flow (least bubbles)
Select a transducer location
The primary aim is to stay clear of propeller and hull generated
turbulence, while mounting the transducer as close to the center of
the vessel as possible.
1
2 3
4
5
1 Avoid mounting within 1m (3.3’) to port of propeller
2 Conventional clockwise propeller rotation
3 Avoid mounting within 7.5cm (3“) to starboard of propeller
4 Best mounting location - undisturbed water flow
5 Planing strake - avoid mounting behind here
¼¼ Note: Reverse the distance guides (1 & 3) from propeller where
engine is of counterclockwise configuration.
14 |
Display Installation | HDS Gen2 Touch Installation Manual
¼¼ Note: Boats with strakes or ribs on the hull can create large amounts
of turbulence at higher speeds. A good transducer location on these
types of boats is between the ribs closest to the engine.
¼¼ Note: If the transducer is not placed in a smooth flow of water,
interference caused by bubbles and turbulence may show onscreen in the form of random lines or dots. The unit could also lose
bottom signal when the boat is on plane.
¼¼ Note: Trim tabs will vary in the amount of turbulence they create as
they are adjusted, stay clear of these.
Attaching the transducer
The transducer should be installed parallel with the transom’s
waterline, not the bottom of the boat (deadrise).
¼¼ Note: Ensure the entire bottom surface of the transducer hangs
at least couple of millimetres (1/16ths of an inch) lower than the
bottom of the hull.
Hold the transducer with bracket up to the transom of the boat
and trace the slotted screw hole locations (two on the 83/200 KHz
transducer, and four on the 50/200 KHz transducer). Mark drilling
points in the middle of each outline, to allow for transducer height
adjustment. Drill pilot holes to suit fasteners.
¼¼ Note: Check that there is nothing on the other side of the mounting
surface that may be damaged by drilling.
Attach transducer to transom, using supplied stainless steel
fasteners. Drill a 25mm (1”) hole above the waterline, large enough
to pass the plug through.
Display Installation | HDS Gen2 Touch Installation Manual
| 15
Secure the cable to the hull at regular intervals using cable P clips or
saddles and ensure that moving parts such as an outboard motor or
boarding ladder can’t snag the cable.
Adjusting the transducer
If the sounder image shows interference lines on the screen when
moving, which worsen with speed, it may be possible to eliminate
these by adjusting the transducer’s angle.
¼¼ Note: A transducer that is tilted too far in either direction will not
perform well, missing targets, and/or losing the bottom at speed.
If performance does not improve with tilting, try adjusting the
height of the transducer relative to the transom of the boat. If the
transducer is too high it may be seeing cavitation caused by the
trailing edge of the transom.

Transducer connection
All Combo HDS Gen2 Touch displays have internal Broadband and
StructureScan sonar (chart only units require an external module
for sonar). Navico transducers fitted with the 7 pin blue connector
can be plugged directly into the corresponding blue socket labeled
‘Sonar’. The 9 pin black structure scan connector can be plugged
in to the socket labelled ‘Structure’ . Refer to the Overview section
of this manual, or embossed labeling on the unit for connector
location.
Connector attached to cable is keyed and can only be inserted in
one orientation. Once inserted, turn locking collar to secure.
¼¼ Note: Connectors are not in same location on the HDS-7 display as
they are on the HDS-9 and 12 displays (shown above). The ‘Structure’
connector is located to the right of the ‘Sonar’ connector on all units.
¼¼ Note: Sonar data can also be supplied by an external sonar
source such as the BSM-2 or another sonar capable Navico display
connected via ethernet.
¼¼ Note: While made for LSS-2 HD transducer, the displays are also
compatible with earlier LSS-1 transducers through use of an adaptor
cable - see page 30.

Wiring | HDS Gen2 Touch Installation Manual
Ethernet device connection
Ethernet is used to interconnect high bandwidth devices such as
radar, sonar, and other displays. The HDS-7 display has one ethernet
port, whereas the HDS-9 and 12 displays have two. Navico ethernet
cables have a locking collar, for maintaining a reliable, waterproof
connection.
Connecting directly to a single device
The ethernet port is auto sensing, meaning that the unit can
connect to one network device directly, without the use of a crossover cable or switch.
Connecting to multiple devices
If connecting more than one ethernet device to a HDS-7 display, or
two devices to a HDS-9 or HDS-12 display, use the optional network
expansion Port (NEP-2).
If the number of ethernet devices exceeds the number of available
ports on the NEP-2, it is possible to link two or more NEP-2 modules
together to provide the required ports. The NEP-2 modules are fitted
with 5 ethernet ports. See page 31 for cable options.
¼¼ Note: When designing a system, take in to account the ports ‘lost’
when used for linking multiple NEP-2 modules together.
Wiring | HDS Gen2 Touch Installation Manual

NMEA 2000 device connection
All HDS Gen2 Touch models are equiped with a NMEA 2000 port,
which allows the receiving and sharing of a multitude of data from
various sources.
Essential network information
• A NMEA 2000 network consists of a linear “backbone” from which
“drop cables” connect to NMEA 2000 devices
• NMEA 2000 is a powered network.
• NMEA 2000 cables used for Lowrance products are of the ‘micro-c’
style, which is a cable/connector specification approved for use in
NMEA 2000 certified networks.
• A single drop cable has a maximum length of 6 m (20 ft). The total
length of all drop cables combined should not exceed 78m (256 ft)
• The backbone has a maximum cable length of 100m (328ft). The
maximum cable length between any two devices on the network
is also 100 m (328 ft) - this is taking in to account device drop cable
length.
• A NMEA 2000 network needs to have a terminator at each end of
the backbone.
Planning and installing a network backbone
The NMEA 2000 backbone needs to run between the locations of all
products you want to install, typically in a bow to stern layout. Route
the backbone so that drop cables to devices do not exceed 6m
length. Choose from the following components to make up your
NMEA 2000 backbone:
• Micro-C cables: 2’ (0.61m), 6’ (1.82m), 15’ (4.55m), 25’ (7.58m)
• T-connector. Use at locations where you want to connect a device
by drop cable
• Micro-C male and Micro-C female to SimNet adaptor cables for
connecting to SimNet bus, or adding devices fitted with a SimNet
connector to a Micro-C network.
¼¼ Note: If using a wind sensor, plan to connect this to one end of the
backbone with the termination resistor at the mast head.
Power the network
A NMEA 2000 network requires its own 12 V DC power supply. The
Lowrance NMEA 2000 power cable is pre fitted with an inline fuse
holder and 3 amp fuse.
22 |
Wiring | HDS Gen2 Touch Installation Manual
In smaller NMEA 2000 systems, the power connection may be made
anywhere in the system,
For larger systems introduce power at a central point in the
backbone to ‘balance’ the voltage drop of the network. Use a power
cable without termination.
¼¼ Note: When joining a NMEA 2000 network with a Simrad SimNet
network, it is important that you do not introduce power to both.
¼¼ Note: Do not connect the power cable to the same terminals as the
autopilot computer, pulse radar, bow thruster or other high current
devices - the network may be affected by voltage drop when these
devices are operated. Avoid connection to the engine starting
batteries where possible.

NMEA 0183 device connection
The HDS has a NMEA 0183 serial port, providing both an input and
output for NMEA 0183 data.
The port can be set to different baud rates, up to 115,200 baud. The
NMEA0183 sentences output can be individually turned on or off.
Refer to the section Supported Data / NMEA 0183 for a complete list
of sentences.

Talkers and Listeners
Do not connect multiple devices outputing data (Talkers) on to
the input (Rx) of the unit. The RS422 protocol is not intended for
this type of connection, and data will be corrupted if more than
one device transmits simultaneously. The output however may
drive multiple receivers (Listeners). The number of receivers is finite,
and depends on the receiving hardware. Typically three devices is
possible.
Video In
On the HDS-9 and HDS-12, a video camera may be added by
installing the optional video adaptor cable between the power
socket on the unit, and the plug on the power/data cable.
¼¼ Note: The video images will not be shared with another unit via the
network. It is only possible to view video on the unit connected to
the video source.

Keel offset
This is a value that can be entered on the Sonar Installation page to
make depth readings relate to any point from the water surface, to
the deepest point of the vessel.
Below are some typical ways in which the offset is used:
A) For Depth below Keel: Set the distance from transducer to the
keel.
Enter a negative value, e.g.
B) For Depth Below Transducer: no offset required.
C) For Depth Below Surface (waterline): Set the distance from
transducer to the surface:
Enter a positive value., e.g.

Water speed calibration
Water speed calibration is used to adjust the speed value from the
paddle wheel to match the actual boat speed through the water.
Actual speed can be determined from GPS speed over ground
(SOG) or by timing the boat over a known distance. Water speed
calibration should be performed in calm conditions, with minimal
wind and current movement.
Water speed averaging
Averages water speed by measuring your speed at a selected
interval of time. Water speed intervals range from one to thirty
seconds, e.g. If you select five seconds, your displayed water speed
will be based on averaging over 5 seconds of sampling.
Water temperature calibration
Temperature calibration is used to adjust the water temperature
value from the sonar transducer to match the data from another
temperature sensor. It may be required to correct for localized
influences to the measured temperature.
¼¼ Note: Water temperature calibration only appears if the transducer is
temperature capable. Check transducer type selection if this option
should be available.
Transducer type
Transducer type is used for selecting the transducer model that
came with your unit. In some transducers with built-in temperature
sensors, the temperature reading may be inaccurate if the wrong
transducer is selected from the transducer type menu.
Software setup | HDS Gen2 Touch Installation Manual

Touch Screen Calibration
In some cases it may be required to re-calibrate the touch screen
due to electrical influences on the device from it’s installation
environment. The following steps should be completed to apply
calibration:
1. Turn the unit off
2. Press and hold the Waypoint key, then turn the unit on
3. Hold the Waypoint key during power on, until the calibration utility screen
comes up
4. Touch crosshair

allowing you to mount it anywhere
•
Less than 1/5th the transmitted emissions of a mobile phone, can be safely mounted in
proximity to passengers
•
Compatible with a wide range of Navico multi-function displays and heading sensors
What is Broadband radar?
The Navico Broadband Radar uses FMCW (Frequency Modulated Continuous Wave) radar
technology.
FMCW radar is different:
Firstly it is solid state – i.e. the transmitter is a semiconductor device, not based on magnetron
technology. Secondly, it transmits a 1ms long signal of increasing frequency, rather than a short
duration pulse. Thirdly, it measures the distance to a target not by timing the returned echoes,
but by measuring the difference between the current transmitted frequency and echoed
frequency. Hence FMCW – Frequency Modulated Continuous Wave.
The building up of the image over 360 degrees and the processing of the radar data is the same
as for a magnetron radar.
How does FMCW radar work?

Welcome | Broadband 3G/4G™ Radar Installation Guide
FMCW = Frequency Modulated Continuous Wave
The scanner transmits a ‘rising tone’ (Tx wave) with linearly increasing frequency. The wave
propagates out from the transmitter retaining the frequency it had when it was transmitted. If
it reflects off an object, it will return to the receiver, still at the frequency it had when originally
transmitted.
Meanwhile, the transmitter continues to output an increasing frequency.
The difference between both the currently transmitted and received frequencies, coupled with
the known rate of frequency increase, allows a time of flight to be calculated, from which distance is calculated.
Additional benefits of FMCW radar are:
Safety
•
•
•
low energy emissions. 1/5th of a mobile phone
safe operation in anchorages and marinas
instant power up. No warm up required
Short range performance
•
•
•
broadband radar can see within a few meters of the boat, compared to pulse radars,
which can not see closer than 30 meters
higher resolution clearly separates individual vessels and objects
Up to five times better sea and rain clutter performance
Low power
•
•
•
suitable for small boats and yachts
easier installation with lighter cabling and smaller connectors
great for yachts on ocean passage
Instant power-up
•
•
conventional radars take 2-3 minutes to warm up the magnetron: Safety – 2 minutes is a
long time if you are concerned about collision.
convenience – switch it on and use it.
Easy to use
•
•
no constant adjusting required to obtain optimum performance
no re-tuning between ranges. Means fast range change at all ranges

Radar system overview
2
The Broadband Radar is a state of the art navigation aid. It provides outstanding radar
performance without the limitations of conventional pulse radars such as: dangerous
high power microwaves, standby warm up time, 30 m blind spot (mainbang), high power
consumption and large open arrays (which is what would be required to obtain the same
image quality at shorter ranges).
The Broadband 3G™ radar has an effective range from 200 ft to 24 nm, whereas the Broadband
4G™ radar has an effective range from 200 ft to 36 nm (target dependent).
The operating power consumption for the 3G is 18 W, with a stand-by power consumption of
2 W. The 4G operates on 20W, and has a standby consumption of 2.9W.
The system consists of: radar scanner, an interface box (not included with Lowrance 3G USA
model) and an interconnection cable. The scanner is housed in a dome of similar size to most
2 kW radars on the market.
The RI10 interface box is used to connect displays, power and heading information if MARPA or
chart overlay are required (Heading sensor not included). The RI10 has a SimNet (Simrad NMEA
2000) connector for heading input. The RI10 is included in all 4G kits.
The RI11 interface box is used to connect to earlier NX series displays using a serial connection.
A Y-cable may be used to add heading input for MARPA via NMEA0183.
The 3G kit may be ordered with either interface box, however the Lowrance USA model (00010418-001) is not shipped with an RI10 or RI11 interface.

Choose the scanner location
The radar’s ability to detect targets greatly depends on the position of its scanner. The ideal
location for the scanner is high above the vessel’s keel line where there are no obstacles.
A higher installation position increases the radar ranging distance, but it also increases the
minimum range around the vessel where targets cannot be detected.
When you’re deciding on the location, consider the following:
The length of the interconnection cable supplied w your radar is usually sufficient. If you think
you’ll need a longer cable, consult your dealer before installation. Optional cable lengths are 10
m (33 ft), 20 m (65.5 ft) and 30 m (98 ft).
If you mount the scanner on a pedestal or base, ensure that rain and sea spray can drain away
rapidly, and the breather hole in the base can operate .
The scanner is usually installed parallel to the line of the keel.
!
DON’T DO THIS!
•
DON’T install the scanner too high up (eg at the top of a mast), which may cause
degradation of the radar picture over short ranges
•
DON’T install the scanner close to lamps or exhaust outlets. The heat emissions may
damage the dome. Soot and smoke will degrade the performance of the radar
•
DON’T install the scanner close to the antennas of other equipment such as direction
finders, VHF antennas, GPS equipment, as it may cause or be subject to interference
•
DON’T install the scanner where a large obstruction (such as an exhaust stack) is at the
same level as the beam, because the obstruction is likely to generate false echoes and/or
shadow zones
•
DON’T install the scanner where it will be subjected to strong vibrations because these
vibrations could degrade the performance of the radar
•
DON’T install the scanner such that boat electronics with switch mode power supplies
(such as fish-finders and chart plotters) are in the beam of the antenna
•
DON’T install the scanner directly on to a large flat roof area. Use a pedestal to elevate the
scanner for radar beams to clear roof line (see “Considerations for direct roof mounting” on
page 8)
Dual Radar installation - Broadband Radar and Pulse Radar installation:
For dual radar installations, ensure Broadband Radar is not installed in the beam of the pulse
radar at any time.

Do not install the Broadband Radar on the same
beam plane as a conventional pulse radar. A pulse
radar must be set to STBY or OFF any time the
Broadband Radar is being operated.
If possible ensure that the location site
provides the scanner with a clear view
all round the vessel.
Installations on power boats that have a steep
planing angle, it is recommended to tilt the scanner angle down at the front. (Beam angle is 12.5°
either side of center).

When deciding a suitable mounting location for the Broadband Radar, be aware that the vertical radar beam extends to 25° either side of horizontal. With 50% of the power projecting in a
beam 12.5° off horizontal. If the radar beams cannot clear the roof line, this will decrease performance of the radar. Depending on the size of the hard top of the vessel, it is recommended
not to mount directly on to the surface, instead elevate the scanner to allow the radar beams
to clear the roof line. Below are guide lines on heights above the hard top.

The above illustrates an installation with the Broadband Radar mounted directly on to a large
hard top. This installation could suffer decreased performance as the radar energy is either
reflected or absorbed by the hard top.
 Note: Where the mounting surface is constructed of any form of metal you must elevate
the dome so that the beam has complete clearance, else performance will be severely
impaired.

Mounting the scanner
Use the supplied mounting template and tape it securely to the chosen location.
Before drilling, check that:
• you have oriented the mounting template correctly so that the front of the scanner unit will
face the front of the vessel
• the thickness of chosen location is not more than 18 mm (0.7”) thick. If the location is thicker,
longer bolts than those supplied will be required
• the four bolts supplied are M8 x 30 mm. If you need to use longer bolts make sure they are
marine grade stainless steel and allow for minimum of 8 mm (0.3”) and maximum of 18 mm
(0.7”) of thread contact
1. Use a 9.5 mm (3/8”) drill bit to drill the four holes where shown on the mounting template
2. Remove the mounting template
3. Connect the scanner interconnection cable (see “Connect interconnection cable to the
scanner” on page 11 )
4. Route the connection cable through the cable retention channel
6. Position the scanner carefully over the bolt holes so that they are aligned
7. Place a lock washer and a plain washer onto each bolt, as shown
8. Insert bolt into drill hole and locate into scanners threaded mounting holes and tighten securely
 Note: The torque settings for the mounting bolts are 12 Nm – 18 Nm (8.9 lb ft – 13.3 lb ft)

 Note: Lowrance HDS units sold in the USA do not require an interface box and the scanner
connects directly to the display or Ethernet switch. If chart overlay or MARPA are required for
Lowrance HDS USA then an RI10 Interface box and heading sensor are required
Adding MARPA and / or Chart Overlay
To add MARPA and/or Chart overlay, it is essential to use a heading sensor with an output speed
of 10 Hz. The Heading sensor needs to be a rate gyro stabilized compass or better
You can use a Heading Sensor with an NMEA 0183 or NMEA2000 output source
You must use a Radar Interface box to connect the heading data to the radar system - this is
because MARPA calculations are done by the radar:
•
If your heading source is NMEA0183, use an RI11 Interface box for Simrad NX installations,
or an RI10 Interface box with an AT10HD converter for all other installations. The AT10HD
converts NMEA0183 to SimNet / NMEA2000 (only heading information is converted)
•
If your heading source is NMEA2000 or SIMNET use an RI10 Interface box.

Connect power
6
The Broadband Radar can operate on 12 or 24 V DC systems. The Broadband Radar requires +V
DC to be applied on the yellow power on wire in order to operate. This can be achieved in one
of three ways:
1. Common the red and yellow wire together, and connect to a fused switch. Radar will power on
in standby when power is applied. When switch is off, radar will draw no power
2. Use ignition or install a switch that will provide power to the yellow wire. (It is recommended to
use a 5 amp fuse or breaker). The radar will turn on when switch is activated. When the switch
is off, the radar will draw minimal power (~1mA)
3. Connect the yellow wire to external wake up of suitable display such as NSE, NSO, or NSS. The
radar will turn on when the display is turned on. The display must be set to ‘Master’ under
Power Control. When the display is off, the radar will draw minimal power (~1mA)
Before connecting power to the system:

Setup and Configuration
Setup and configuration of the Broadband radar has been simplified compared to traditional
pulse radars. There is no zero range adjustment (time delay), no warm up time, and no burn in
required.
The following sections cover the available adjustments. Note that the menu examples used are
from the Simrad NSE. While these differ aesthetically from the Lowrance interface, the content
is essentially the same.
Entering radar setup on your display
Enter radar installation by pressing MENU > SETTINGS > RADAR > INSTALLATION.
Radar Status
Software Version
Check to make sure you have the latest software. Check website for the latest version.
Serial Number
Take a minute to write down the serial number of the radar.
MARPA Status
The MARPA status can identify if a heading sensor is on the network and that the radar is
receiving heading information essential for MARPA calculations.
Reset Device ID
NSS and HDS displays only support one radar on the network. Should a radar be connected,
that has been previously connected to a dual radar network in the past, it may not be detected
by the display because it has an incorrect Device ID. To resolve this problem use the following
procedure, which must be performed with only one radar on the network.
From the Radar Status page. Select “Reset device ID....” then follow the on screen prompts;
Setup and Configuration | Broadband 3G/4G™ Radar Installation Guide
| 19
Adjust bearing alignment...
Adjust the heading marker. This is to align with the heading marker on the screen with the
center line of the vessel, this will compensate for any slight misalignment of the scanner during
installation. Any inaccuracy will be evident when using MARPA or chart overlay.
Point the boat to the end of a head land or peninsula. Adjust the bearing alignment so the
heading line touches the end of the same head land or peninsula.
Adjust local interference reject...
Interference from some onboard sources can interfere with the Broadband radar. One symptom
of this could be a large target on the screen that remains in the same relative bearing even if
the vessel changes direction. Choose from Local interference rejection LOW, MED or HIGH.
Default is LOW.
Adjust antenna height...
Set the radar scanner height. The Radar uses this value to optimize sea clutter performance.
 Note: It is very important to get the antenna height configured correctly as this will affect the
sea clutter function. Do not set the height to 0.
Sidelobe suppression...
 Note: This control should only be adjusted by experienced radar users. Target loss in harbour
environments may occur if this control is not adjusted correctly.
Occasionally false target returns can occur
adjacent to strong target returns such as
large ships or container ports.
This occurs because not all of the
transmitted radar energy can be focused
into a single beam by the radar antenna, a
small amount energy is transmitted in other
directions.
This energy is referred to as sidelobe energy
and occurs in all radar systems.
The returns caused by sidelobes tend to
appear as arcs:
When the radar is mounted where there are metallic objects near the radar, sidelobe energy
increases because the beam focus is degraded. The increased sidelobe returns can be eliminated
using the Sidelobe Suppression control in the Radar installation menu.
By default this control is set to Auto, and normally should not need to be adjusted. However
if there is significant metallic clutter around the radar, sidelobe suppression may need to be
increased. The control should be adjusted as follows:
1. Set Radar range to between 1/2nm to 1nm and Sidelobe Suppression to Auto
2. Take the vessel to a location where sidelobe returns are likely to be seen. Typically this would
be near a large ship, container port, or metal bridge
3. Traverse the area until the strongest sidelobe returns are seen
4. Change Auto sidelobe suppression to OFF then select and adjust the sidelobe suppression
control until the sidelobe returns are just eliminated. You may need to monitor 5-10 radar
sweeps to be sure they have been eliminated
5. Traverse the area again and readjust if sidelobes returns still occur
6. Exit the installation menu

Setup and Configuration | Broadband 3G/4G™ Radar Installation Guide
To start the radar:
From the radar screen select the Transmit button.
RI10 heading source selection:
The RI10 receives heading via SimNet or NMEA2000 network and transmits this data to the
radar, where MARPA processing is performed.
For Simrad installations with more than one SimNet heading source the RI10 will use the
Simrad group source. The source used by the Simrad group can be viewed or changed via an
NSE / NSO / NSS display in the Settings>Network>Sources… menu.
Dual Radar setup:
For B&G Zeus and Simrad NSO and NSE displays it is possible for two radars to be connected
to the network and viewed simultaneously on one display. At time of installation radar source
selection needs to be performed as described below.
1. Power up the system including both radars
2. On any display, the first radar ever detected by the display will be used as the source for all chart
and radar panels. This source will be used by default for every system power-up thereafter,
until changed
The radar source is identified by radar type with a four digit number and is displayed in the top
left corner of chart and radar panels:
 Note: The four digit number is the last four digits of the radars serial number.
3. For a radar panel, the radar source can be changed in the Radar>Radar Options>Sources menu:
4. For a chart panel (with radar overlay on), the radar source can be changed in the Chart>Radar
Options>Sources menu:
5. For pages with more than one radar or chart panel, it is possible to set up different radar
sources for each panel
Setup and Configuration | Broadband 3G/4G™ Radar Installation Guide
| 21
6. The radar source selection is not global, so will only apply to the display on which the
source was selected. The radar source will need to be setup for each display on the network.
Once the radar sources have been set up they will be retained for every system power-up until
changed by the user
Dual Range setup (Broadband 4GTM Radar only):
With a Simrad NSE display connected to a Broadband 4G™ radar, it’s possible to run the radar
in dual range mode. This allows two radar panels to be veiwed simultaneously, operating at
different ranges but with all image data supplied by one 4G scanner. Each displayed radar panel
can track up to 10 MARPA targets - ability to acquire targets is range dependant.
Setup of Dual Range is identical to that used for Dual Radar setup, except that a 4G radar will
show two instances in the sources list; an A channel and a B channel.
 Note: two 4G radars on the same system will show four radar sources (two A and B channels).

Maintenance
Clean the radome using soapy water and a soft cloth.
Avoid using abrasive cleaning products.
Do not use solvents such as gasoline, acetone, M.E.K etc. as this will damage the dome surface.
After years of use the drive belt may have to be replaced.
The transmitter in the Broadband Radar is solid state and will not require regular replacement,
unlike the magnetron found in conventional pulse radar.
