ACTIVE-X

The Active X has FCC Approved ID: XZMACTIVE-X - NATO stock number 5840 99 904 3941

State of the art Echomax Active-X-Band Radar Target Enhancer receives a signal from transmitting radar, amplifies and returns a stronger signal. This increases the likelihood of detection reducing the risk of collision and helps to alert oncoming vessels of your position.

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

Control Box for interior installation Surface mount:

  • Surface mount for interior installation or flush mount fitting with optional flush mount kit.

  • With optional base or rear entry cable facility

  • Red switch powers up unit and Red LED indicates power

  • Green LED illuminates when being painted by radar

  • Green switch controls internal buzzer

  • One short flash in 2.4 seconds indicates one radar signal

  • Multiple flashes in 2.4 seconds indicates multiple radar signals

  • (Note: 2.4 seconds is time for revolution of normal speed radar.

  • High speed radar will repeat every 1.5 seconds)

  • Externally accessible fuse

TRIPLE ALARM FACILITY:

  • Green LED indicates being painted by radar

  • Switchable internal buzzer which sounds when being painted by radar

  • 8A Volt free external alarm facility

  • Dimensions

  • Antenna length: 478 mm

  • Antenna width: 40.5 mm

  • Antenna weight: 327 gms excluding cable

  • Control Box width: 92 mm

  • Control Box height: 51mm

  • Control Box depth: 38 mm

The following calculations were used and make an assumption of radar parameters as follows.
X Band PRI 1KHz, Pulse width 1uS antenna Beam width 3 degrees, antenna rotation 25rpm.
S Band PRI 700Hz, Pulse width 2uS Antenna Beam width 5 degrees, antenna rotation 25rpm.
In standby without any radar interrogations the RTE will take the following current from the battery

This would equate to a daily use of the following

ACTIVE-XS

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 below. Non use of the control box saves 10mA of power.
