Echomax Active-XS RTE Dual Band Halyard Fitting

With increasingly limited space at the mast head and the ensuing distant horizon and suitable mounting options free from shadowing or adjacent large metal objects the new halyard suspension from the two back stays for the Echomax Active RTE goes a long way to solve the problem. Free suspension from the two back stays in most cases allows compensation by the bottom attachment from heel thus retaining most of the 112M2 Stated performance level whilst the vessel is at heel.  

The RTE must not be subjected to winch pressure and cable secured to avoid chaffing. Each RTE is supplied with 24M of cable as standard, if additional cable is required please let us now when ordering.

State of the Art Echomax Active-XS-Dual Band Radar Target Enhancer with minuscule current draw of 23mA on stand by and very high X and S band response many times the new ISO 8729-2 standard. Unique visual facility to identify S or X Band Radar paints. Quadruple alarm facility as standard.

The Active-XS amplifies and returns a stronger signal and these high responses to both X or S Band Radar increase the likelihood of improving your vessels radar cross section and helps to alert oncoming vessels of your position and detection especially in poor conditions and thereby reduces the risk of collision.

Active RTE are increasingly being used on navigation buoys and their estimated power consumption can be seen using this link. Non use of the control box saves 10mA of power.

The Active XS has FCC Approval ID: XZMACTIVE-XS - NATO stock number 5841-99-269-3512
