Raymarine Introduces Integrated Thermal-Imaging Systems
September 8, 2010
Now that Raymarine has been purchased by FLIR, it opens the door to all sorts of intriguing navigational advances involving thermal-imaging equipment. The first example of this collaboration is the new T300 and T400 Series thermal navigation cameras for Raymarine E-Series Widescreen and G-Series multifunction navigation systems.
Engineered with FLIR thermal imaging technology, the T300 and T400 cameras allow boaters to navigate safely in complete darkness by revealing obstructions, buoys and other vessels. Designed for simple operation, the cameras can be fully integrated with Raymarine’s E-Series Widescreen and G-Series multifunction displays, allowing boaters to access thermal images alongside their chartplotter, fishfinder, and radar navigation displays. The cameras can be controlled via the E-Series’ HybridTouch user interface or directly from a G-Series navigation system using the remote keyboard. In addition, an optional remote joystick control is available, offering full control independent of the multifunction display.
The T300 and T400 cameras are available in several models to fit every application and budget. The T300 features a single thermal-imaging sensor, while the T400 Series features both a thermal-imaging camera and a high-performance, low-light video camera. Both the T300 and T400 are available with a standard-resolution 320 x 240 thermal imager or a high-resolution 640 x 480 imager. The cameras’ compact, rugged, marine-grade housings provide 360-degree pan and 90-degree tilt for complete coverage from horizon to horizon. Using a video splitter, the cameras can be viewed and controlled at any E-Series Widescreen or G-Series remote displays.
