Washington-based Furuno has introduced its first Chirp-enabled Fish Finder, the DFF1-UHD.
The DFF1-UHD features TruEcho Chirp, Furuno’s professional-grade broadband fish finding technology. Designed to operate across a range of frequencies using a Chirp transducer, the DFF1-UHD delivers improvements in signal clarity, resolution and target definition. This helps anglers find more of their target species, game fish and bait fish, even when tightly schooled together or near the sea floor.
Two new features of the DFF1-UHD are Bottom Discrimination and Accu-Fish technologies. Bottom Discrimination Mode provides detailed graphical information about the make-up of the bottom. Accu-Fish is a fish size assessment function that can tell the approximate size of the fish below the vessel. It can detect fish from 4 inches to about 6 feet long, in depths of 7 feet to well over 300 feet of water.
The DFF1-UHD transmits and receives pulses across a range of 90 frequencies (50kHz +/- 20kHz, 200kHz +/- 25kHz) within each transmission. The equivalent sound energy transmitted into the water can be up to 1,000 times greater than a conventional Fish Finder, resulting in more energy on target which provides greater resolution and depth capability than a comparably powered standard Fish Finder.
The Furuno DFF1-UHD connects directly to any NavNet TZtouch and NavNet 3D MFD, or it can be connected to a NavNet-supported Ethernet network. A software upgrade may be required.
