FLIR is introducing a new generation of marine thermal cameras, combining thermal and high-definition imaging for increased situational awareness and safer navigation. The new line, called the M300 Series, is a successor to FLIR’s M-Series of marine cameras.
The next-generation M300 Series consists of five models with rugged new pan and tilt housings built for the harsh marine environment. Four of them have FLIR Boson 640- or 320-resolution thermal camera cores and various fixed field-of-view lenses, plus a visible-only model, the M300C, with a high-definition color, low-light camera with 30x zoom.
The new cameras make navigation easier through improved image stabilization using an integrated attitude heading reference system sensor to provide a steady view in rough conditions. They also are designed to integrate with latest-generation nav displays, including FLIR’s Raymarine Axiom series of multifunction displays.
The dual-sensor M364C and M364C LR offer greater awareness using FLIR’s Color Thermal Vision Technology. Proprietary multispectral imaging technology blends thermal and high-definition color video for enhanced identification of buoys, aids to navigation, vessels and other targets at night.
“Our FLIR M300 Series cameras employ advanced sensing and imaging technologies so first responders, commercial mariners and recreational boaters can navigate safer in limited visibility,” says Travis Merrill, president of FLIR’s Commercial Business Unit. “These professional-grade marine cameras offer industry-leading performance and deep integration with Raymarine Axiom navigation displays to bring mariners a new level of situational awareness.”
The five new models cost from $6,495 to $29,495. For more:
