Compact dual polarization weather radar
The Furuno WR-2120 weather radar is a dual polarized radar. This model simultaneously transmits and receives pulses in both horizontal and vertical orientation. As a result, the returning frequencies provide measurements of the horizontal and vertical dimensions of detected targets, thus providing the possiblity to present high precision echoes of the size, shape, and variety of targets.
STAND-ALONE or MULIT-RADAR CONFIGURATION
The Furuno WR-2120 weather radar can be operate as a stand-alone system for local weather observations or be a part of a multi-radar system in order to cover a wider area. Together with other weather radars utilizing the S-band or even C-band for long range coverage, the Furuno weather radars can be a very useful gap fillers, using the X-band and thus providing very detailed and high resolution presentation of weather observations within limited areas.
The Furuno WR-2120 provides high-resolution data within a radius of approx. 70 km with full volume scanning every minute.
FURUNO WEATHER RADAR WR-2120 IS INSTALLED IN Aalesund
Furuno weather radar WR-2120 is installed at Aksla overviewing the city of Aalesund and the surrounding areas, within a radius of 70 kilometers. The radar provides Ålesund municipality with local and accurate weather observations that will be used for development of new and innovative services with the objective of managing municipal resources the best way possible.
