MXS-5000 MarineCommander

MXS-5000 MarineCommander

Marine Networked Navigation System

MarineCommander is Icom's marine navigation system, which integrates various marine modules such as a fish finder, marine radar, AIS and VHF/DSC transceiver into the MXD-5000 multi-function display (MFD). Up to two MFDs can be connected to a main processor unit (MPU) and support separate dual display operation. If connecting two MarineCommander MPUs over a data cable, up to four MFDs can be used and the connected modules (E.g. fish finder, radar) can be shared with the other MFDs.

Dual display network system at an affordable price
The MarineCommander is a robust network navigation system at an affordable price. The MarineCommander allows you to connect two MFDs simultaneously. All connected modules including chart data*, fish finder and marine radar can be shared with two MFDs and provide separate operation. The MFD can be installed up to 20m (65.6ft) away from the MPU*. When connected two MPUs via a data cable, up to 4 displays can be used and C-MAP data can be shared in the system.
* Three optional EX-3187 extension cables are required.

Daylight Viewable Display
The 12.1 inch size MFD provides 800x600 pixels resolution. The 900cd/m2 high brightness, colour LCD with anti-reflecting surface coating glass offers bright, vivid indication in detail even in direct sunlight. The colour palette is selectable for day and night mode.

Slim dimension and easy installation
The MFD is slim 69.2mm (2.7 inch) and light weight for easy flush mount installation. The MFD has IPX7 submersible construction for protection from water intrusion. The MFD can be connected with a main processor unit (MPU) using a single cable connection and power is supplied via the MPU.

Simple operation
The MarineCommander offers a simple graphical user interface and intuitive operation with minimum buttons and rotary knob. The display layout can be split into up to 4 panes with easily customised layout with a simple operation.

MXG-5000 GPS receiver
The MXG-5000 is a 12 channel GPS receiver with WAAS, EGNOS and MSAS differential corrections. It offers accurate position information enclosed in the IPX6 high-pressure water jet resistance.

USB flash drive connection
The MFD has a USB slot to connect with a USB flash drive. Waypoint, track and route information and memo data can be backed up to a USB flash and imported into other MarineCommanders or a PC.

CHART PLOTTER FEATURES
C-MAP™ MAX Compatible
The MarineCommander is compatible with the C-MAP™ MAX chart by JEPPESEN in an SD card format*. The MarineCommander provides quick and fast responding rendering performance. The C-MAP™ MAX chart provides guardian alarm, safety check, perspective view and Port database for your safe and easy navigation.
* Chart data is not supplied from Icom.

CHART PLOTTER FEATURES
The MXR-5000R/T marine radar provides clear target discrimination. Waypoint and AIS targets can be overlaid on the radar screen. The marine radar helps with collision avoidance and increases your safety at sea. The radar images can be overlaid on the plotter screen in the same scale and helps the user to detect dangerous objects.

Simplified ATA (Automatic Tracking Aid)
The simplified ATA function allows you to plot up to 10 targets and the radar continues to track the targets automatically. The ATA targets can be overlaid on the plotter screen.

FISH FINDER FEATURES
When connecting a fish finder module, the MarineCommander system can have a dual frequency sounder function. Using the 50kHz/200kHz dual frequency mode, the MarineCommander enhances the separation and helps with fish detection.

AIS & VHF TRANSCEIVER FEATURES
AIS (Automatic Identification System) receives real-time vessel traffic information broadcasted by other AIS equipped vessel. Using the optional MA-500TR or MXA-5000, the received AIS information can be overlaid on the plotter and radar screen.

DSC call (VHF Transceiver required)
The MarineCommander has the capability to connect compatible Icom VHF transceivers*. Various types of DSC calls, including individual, group, all ship, position and polling request*, can be initiated from the MarineCommander. Received DSC messages and position information can be shown on the plotter display.
* As of August 2011, either IC-M603 firmware upgrade version, IC-M505 compatible version is required. Type of transmitting DSC calls are depending on the connected VHF transceiver's capability.

OTHER FEATURES
Engine Monitoring
When connected to engine/environment/heading sensors with an NMEA 2000 interface, the MarineCommander shows current data on a virtual engine meter. This data also can be shown on the status-bar or data-bar.

Memo Function
The memo function allows you to store a comment with picture data* and position information.
* To show picture data, the picture data must be stored in a connected USB flash drive.

Video Camera Monitoring
The MarineCommander has four video input ports with RCA connectors for connecting up to 4 surveillance video cameras (either NTSC or PAL format) and allows you to monitor surroundings and crew members on the MFD. External display connection (analogue RGB)

English/French/Spanish multiple language display
External NMEA 2000 equipment connection
(Engine, Fuel, Engine temperature, Wind, GPS, Compass (heading) and STW)
