JMC NT 2000

8-inch Color LCD Display

An 8-inch color TFT LCD replaces recording paper. Taking full advantage of a color display, the NT-2000 shows search and rescue (SAR) messages in red to clearly differentiate distress messages from navigational or meteorological warnings. Three colors are selectable for the screen background for ease-of-reading, easy-on-the-eye operation under all ambient lighting conditions.

Simultaneous Reception of 518 and 490 or 4209.5 kHz 

Two independently operating receivers, one with a frequency converter, are built-in to simultaneously receive international (518 kHz) and either of 490 kHz or 4209.5 kHz domestic transmissions. If both international and domestic broadcasts occur at the same time, the NT-2000 displays international channel messages, while storing local channel messages in memory for reviewing at a later time. A single keypress switches the first and second channel text pages

Large Character Size, 40 Characters/Line, 20 Lines/Screen 

NAVTEX message screen consists of 18 lines and 40 characters/line plus two status and command lines for user-interface, displaying the text with a minimum of carriage returns and line feeds. Large 5-rmn high fonts, 2 types selectable, are used for enhanced readability, enabling you to read text from several meters away.

Single-Keypress Protection of Stored Messages

Received messages are stored in non-volatile memory, and can be recalled onto the screen line by line or message by message using devoted scroll keys. Messages will be automatically erased from memory after the specified time period or after the full memory capacity is reached, but up to 50 important messages can be easily protected from automatic erasure with a devoted key.

Message Search Function

Stored messages are searchable by station ID and/or by message category, and can be output from a total of three external interface connectors for printing on line or for processing by shipboard or shore-based applications. Alarm outputs are also available from a devoted connector for triggering a remotely located alarm. device.

Three-Frequency Single Whip Active Antenna

A 1.2-meter three-frequency active antenna is included as standard for space-limited installation. Specially designed front-end filtering allows the international channel and user-selected second channel transmissions to be received on the same antenna simultaneously without cross-channel interference and without sacrificing sensitivity or IMD performance.
