Furuno FCV522 Fish Finder Parts
The Furuno FCV522 is a compact color video sounder with dual-frequency transmitters using a
single transducer. Steady, non-fading images are presented on an 8" CRT in accordance with
the received echo strength.
The FCV522 incorporates both 50kHz and 200kHz frequencies for optimum shallow as well as
deep water performance. You have a choice of either low frequency display, either with or without
bottom lock, or a simultaneous dual-frequency display, plus the FCV522's Zoom display. In the
Zoom display, a portion specified by the zoom marker is expanded to a full vertical screen size on
the left-hand side of the screen to give a closer observation of weak targets.
A noise limiter and a unique audible alarm facility are provided as standard features. The alarm
works either as a Fish Alarm (Echowatch) or as a Bottom Alarm.
In addition to manual phasing of range, automatic phasing is provided so that the bottom is
always displayed on the lower half of the screen.
Water depth is displayed digitally on-screen. When the FCV522 is fitted with an optional
Speed/Temperature sensor or a multi-sensor transducer, both ship speed and water
temperature are displayed digitally. In addition, ship's position in Lat/Lon is shown when a nav
sensor outputting data in CIF or NMEA 0183 format ($**GLL sentence) is connected. All of this
digital data may be presented in larger size type in the Nav Data Display.
You can also call up another unique display mode, the Graphic Display. Graphic Display shows,
together with the depth contours, the detailed historical change of water temperature when an
optional sensor is connected.
