Power consumption of a S-band Radar?

Hello eveyone!

Can anyone help me out:

I need to know what is the power consumption (diesel) of a S-Band, 30kW radar with a 3m scanner unit.

Thanks!

Welcome to Sailnet. I'd highly recommend you read this POST to help you get the most out of sailnet. It would seriously help if you mentioned the make and model of the radar unit and scanner in question... Power consumption can vary relatively widely from brand to brand and even between different units within a given brand. Is it an LCD or CRT display? Is it a digital or analog scanner?

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Thank you sailingdog!

Here goes the info:
The radar is a Furuno FR-2137-S, scanner: SN-30AF. With a LCD display and the scanner is digital.

Furuno says I will need a three-fase generator!

Power consumption of a radar system is not measured in LITERS PER HOUR... that would be fuel consumption of an engine...

Are you asking what the fuel consumption of a three-phase genset would be??? Again, it depends on the make/model and working load of the genset.
