Chris Warde, from Sunseeker’s Yacht Division, said, "We are delighted that Raymarine are now able to offer thermal imaging cameras as a fully integrated part of their product line-up, something that our clients who look to use the same brand across the whole dash will see as a real benefit."
Raymarine’s T Series night vision cameras were one of the highlights at the Southampton Boat Show. The new technology was shown in the most impressive way – on an eye-catching powered simulator of a Sunseeker Predator 84 console. Visitors could see how the T450, Raymarine’s top-of-the-range thermal imaging camera, works by sensing heat.
This is emitted by all objects – even icebergs – and enables a clear image of hazards and obstructions, such as buoys, rocks, buildings and landscape features.
The clarity of vision, even in pitch darkness, shows details such as the number of people on an approaching vessel, or more importantly, enables fast location of a person or object in the water.
By integrating the T Series into Raymarine’s multi function displays, users can directly control the night vision cameras using the HybridTouch™ interface for 360º pan, 90º tilt and to zoom the camera. This not only makes T Series very easy to operate, but also enables users to see thermal imaging alongside their chartplotter, fishfinder and radar navigation displays. Designed to withstand the harsh marine environment, the T Series cameras are compact, with rigged marine-grade enclosures. Prices start from around £6,500 to £14,200 ex tax.
