Commercial Fish finder with Stabilised Fish Size indicator
The FCV-38 is a high-performance 4 kW fish finder with a 38 kHz transducer using split-beam technology that provides excellent depth detection capability. It also contributes to reliable fish size estimation. In addition, it provides accurate information on fish schools and the seabed, even in stormy weather, thanks to a unique beam stabilizer.
Echo images from 5 different directions received simultaneously with the multi-beam system
Semi-simultaneous transmission is a new function which limits beam-to-beam interference and makes the seabed easier to identify than with the simultaneous beam transmission mode.
The timing of the transmission has been optimised to accelerate the transmission cycle of the beam even with 5 beams.
Built-in motion sensor provides a stabilized target presentation in rough sea conditions
Pitching and rolling compensation
Pitching and rolling produces an adverse effect not only on the sounding image but also on measurement of fish size. With FURUNO exclusive Stabilizer Technology, the FCV-38 can stabilize both TX and RX beams independently so that the picture will remain accurate.
Accurate fish size measurements in easy-to-understand graph form*
The FCV-38 measures the size of fish in the selected area, and displays the information in a graph that can be understood at a glance. The split-beam technology has improved the accuracy and reliability of fish size measurements and graphs (max. 3).
By analyzing the size, volume, and movement of a targeted school of fish, operators can easily decide what to catch and what not to catch. It is indispensable for deciding when to go for a catch and eliminate a school of fish that are smaller than desired. In addition, it greatly contributes to the management and study of fisheries resources.
