Operating Instructions

General Safety Precautions

General Safety Precautions

Particular attention must be paid to the notes and warnings refer- ring to possible faults in the radar display, since such faults can impair the detection of targets.

The radar can perform its safety function if, and only if, the transmission power and the receiver sensitivity are adequate. Therefore, these characteristics must be checked regularly (by means of the Performance Monitor – see Section 13.3).

means of the Performance Monitor – see Section 13.3 ). DANGER: High frequency radiation Persons must

DANGER: High frequency radiation

Persons must definitely avoid being present in the radiation danger zone of the rotating antenna.

In the case of work being done on the Antenna Unit, the antenna switch

situated there must be

set to 0 and the Transceiver must be discon-

nected from the ship's mains.

There is no international agreement about the danger posed by high frequency radiation of the kind produced by the radar systems. In most countries, a radiation density exceeding 100 W/m 2 is consid- ered to be dangerous; in some countries, values over 10 W/m 2 are regarded as not being completely safe.

DANGER: Injury caused by a rotating antenna

When the radar system is switched to "ON", it is possible that, instead of the expected antenna, a different one will begin to rotate. Therefore, it must be ensured beforehand that all antennas can rotate freely and that are no persons near the antennas.m 7.8 m   DANGER: Injury caused by a rotating antenna ED 3038 G 122 /

RADARPILOT ATLAS 1000

Operating Instructions

The units may be opened only by qualified, trained persons.

The units may be opened only by qualified, trained persons. DANGER: Dangerous voltage Even when the

DANGER: Dangerous voltage

Even when the equipment is switched off, there can be a dangerous voltage present at exposed contacts in the units. Therefore, before a unit is opened, it must be ensured that the voltage supply to the unit is disconnected from the ship's mains, and that it remains disconnected.

Because of the capacitors contained in the units, there can be a dangerous voltage present in any unit even several minutes (or several hours in the case of monitors) after switching off and disconnection from the power supply.

If the units are to be disconnected from the ship's mains, it must be remembered that each Antenna Unit, each Transceiver Electronics Unit and each Indicator normally has its own supply of power from the ship's mains. If, for the transfer of signals (e.g. transfer of the heading signal from the compass system), synchro transmitter are used, a dangerous voltage exists in the units until the reference voltage is switched off.
