Echo Sounder (JFE-380)

Echo sounder


The JFE-380 echo sounder continues the tradition of enhanced depth data technology resulting in highly accurate and reliable read-out functionality.

Enhanced depth data
JRC’s enhanced depth data technology has three central presentation modes, i.e. standard, history and docking. Both standard and docking mode provides a wide range of information. This is stored in the memory for up to 24 hours. The history mode allows you to retrieve all memorized depth data to provide complete feedback.

Display modes
JRC’s new echo sounder incorporates a 6.5-inch high visibility color TFT display. The innovative display modes allow you to select and view echoes in 8 colors or 8 levels of monochrome. Additionally, the size-reduced JFE-380 echo sounder incorporates printer adaptability, providing the ship’s log with valuable printouts if required.

Flexible installation
The compact connection box can be installed out of sight. An optional dual frequency configuration, 50 kHz and 200 kHz, allows you to operate both frequencies independently or simultaneously, or allows you to have a separate bow-stern depth read-out.

The JFE-380 shares the same simple configuration as its predecessors, contributing to enhanced ergonomics and easy retrofitting.

IMO compliant
The JFE-380 is designed according to the latest IMO regulations. All passenger ships and cargo ships exceeding 300GT are required to have a type approved echo sounder onboard. In addition, JRC is continuously developing and evaluating new products, based on future IMO requirements that will contribute to your future safety and navigation at sea.
