The EM180 has a documented maximum radar cross section of 8M2 and is suitable for vessels up to 7-8 metres. We have utilised the largest possible patented symmetrical stacked array with the smallest possible robust Polyethylene case with minimum windage and weight. The EM180 is suitable for deck, mast mount fixing, or halyard suspension and is available in white, orange or yellow. Used extensively on marine buoys and for tsunami warning buoys.

The ideal radar reflector for 6 to 8 metre vessels.

  • Fixings: 2 x 8mm stainless eyelets
  • Weight: 1.4kg
  • Fixing Holes: 8mm

Echomax reflectors use a symmetrical arrangement of interacting corners. Whilst its centreband response pattern is maintained at 15° tilt RCS is -5dB. To counter this, and avoid 'mast shadow'.

Pass a bight over the yardarm via a dead eye. Return bight through reflectors eye and secure taking lines through bight. Take tails through reflectors bottom eye and then to separate cleats via loops at --xx--.

IMPORTANT

Yachtsmen will be aware of the need to trim the reflector when on the reverse tack, failure to do so will result in compounding the angle of heel rendering the reflector inefficient.

Note: Reflector trimmed to leeward 15°. Mast heeling to 30°
