CASE : Customised control panel for a sonar marine application

NSI developed a customised keyboard in cooperation with their Norwegian distributor Hatteland Technology.

Business needs:
The customer was looking for a small and cost-effective keyboard, combined with a trackball which should work for both the echo sounder and sonar.
In addition, the keyboard should be able to tackle harsh environments and therefore required an industrial and rugged design. According to the product specifications adjustable backlight was essential, along with easy installation - plug and play!

CASE : Control unit with rotary knobs for radar system

NSI designed and developed a customised control unit for the radar navigation system of Furuno.


Business needs:
Furuno wanted to improve their existing PC RADAR system.  They wanted to replace all components including the radar sensors, software, PC, monitors, … and they also wanted a new efficient control unit in a marine adapted format.  They were looking for a control unit with 16 pushbuttons and 4 rotary knobs for brilliance, GAIN and SEA / RAIN filtering



NSI developed a new efficient compact control panel for Furuno.  After being tested and approved by their professional users, Furuno called it the “MCP-50”. The MCP-50 makes handling the PC radar much easier.


Key Features: 

  • Compact and marine-adapted format
  • Seamless zooming / panning
  • Flexible and intuitive handling
  • Integrated pushbuttons and rotary knobs
