New Raymarine displays and thermal cameras from FLIR
See more on the water, day or night, with new screens and thermal imaging.
Marine electronics manufacturer, FLIR Systems, used the Miami boat show to announce several new additions to its product line-up for 2017 including new thermal cameras designed for recreational boating and a new range of multifunction displays (MFDs) for Raymarine.
The new cameras, the FLIR M100 and M200, are billed as the most compact pan-and-tilt marine thermal cameras produced to date. The M200 model offers full pan and tilt for viewing 360 degrees in both vertical and horizontal planes for horizon-to-horizon viewing. With full resolution 320x240 pixel thermal resolution and digital zoom, the cameras are designed to provide enhanced awareness for boaters while fishing, sailing or cruising at night.
According to FLIR, the cameras include an integrated multi-core video processor that delivers superior image quality and artificial intelligence features. When combined with a new Raymarine Axiom MFD, users will be able to use FLIR’s new ClearCruise intelligent thermal analytics to alert them to any “non-water” objects such as boats, obstacles, or navigation markers that are identified.
The new Raymarine Axiom family of MFDs feature a range of rugged, all-glass touch screens available in 7-, 9-, and 12-inch display sizes. The units come pre-installed with Raymarine’s new LightHouse 3 operating system combined with a quad core processor to deliver what is described as “a new paradigm of navigational and fish-finding performance”.
“Our latest Raymarine and thermal innovations are game changers for boaters,” said FLIR president and CEO Andy Teich. “With simplified operation, unique RealVision 3D sonar, and our advanced ClearCruise object identification technology, users have the ability to see more, know more, and operate more safely on the water.”
Prices for the Raymarine Axiom MFD Series range from AUD$1,199 RRP to AUD $4,999 RRP while the M-series thermal cameras start at AUD$3,595 RRP. The products will be available at the end of the first quarter of 2017 through FLIR’s network of Raymarine and FLIR Maritime dealers.
