R3016 Radar Control Unit



Compatible with Halo™ Pulse Compression, Broadband 3G™/4G™, and HD Digital radars.

The Simrad R3016 is a dedicated Radar Control Unit with integrated 16-inch widescreen display, compatible with a range of Simrad radar solutions. Engineered to serve aboard coastal and offshore fishing vessels, crew boats, tugs and other workboats, the R3016 offers versatile flush or bracket-mount installation options and intuitive keypad-based operation for reliable control in all conditions.

Key Features

Dedicated Radar Control Display: The R3016 radar control unit offers a professional-grade interface to Simrad Halo™ Pulse Compression, Broadband 3G™/4G™, and HD Digital radar units. Designed to match the modern styling of Simrad glass bridge displays and instruments, this dedicated radar display is a perfect complement to your NSS evo2 or NSO evo2 multi-function display system. Maximise your radar’s utility by adding its own dedicated screen and controls, without compromising on a clean and consistent helm design.

16-inch Widescreen Radar Control Unit: R3016 features a high-definition 16" diagonal widescreen display, providing a large and detailed radar picture that is great for navigating crowded marinas and waterways, searching for birds to find your next fishing spot, or watching far-off weather cells develop. The widescreen layout offers ample display space for alarms, indicators and target tracking information, and makes it easy to use your display’s on-screen menus without hiding the radar picture.

Rugged Design with Flexible Mounting Options: Designed meet the needs of offshore cruisers, sportfishing and commercial vessels, the R3016 supports flush-mount installation in a console or dash, or bracket-mount installation with an included gimbal bracket. Watertight rear connectors mean the R3016 is IPX6 water-resistant from all sides, in either type of installation.

Keypad Operation with Direct-Access Menu Keys: The R3016 is operated by an integrated keypad and rotary dial. Direct-access menu keys beside the display operate adjacent on-screen menu options, for quick and intuitive access to key settings and features. With reliable, long-life operation and clear tactile feedback, the R3016’s large buttons are suitable for use in rough seas, while travelling at speed, and with wet or gloved hands.

Networking and Expansion: R3016 Radar Control Unit connects to compatible Simrad radar systems via Ethernet, offering simple installation and easy networking of multiple control units and radar systems. The R3016 also provides four NMEA 0183 ports and NMEA 2000 connectivity for compatible devices such as heading and speed sensors, AIS, and GPS.

HDMI Output for Display Mirroring: Connect a Simrad MO-series marine monitor or other compatible display to the R3016’s HDMI output to create a secondary radar display mirroring the built-in screen. Add a second non-interactive radar display at another station, or combine an extra display with the optional Simrad O2000 wired remote to create a fully functional ‘clone station’ ideal for dual-helm vessels.
