2017 NEW RELEASES - ELECTRONICS
AXIOM RealVision with 3D Sonar
The new Raymarine AXIOM RealVision combines new technology 3D sonar with Raymarine’s acclaimed CHIRP DownVision and CHIRP SideVision, providing a true all-in-one system with no need for additional black boxes or transducers.
The new AXIOM RealVision 3D Sonar also comes complete with a unique gyro stabilisation system, delivering accurate images of the seabed, underwater structures and fish.
RealVision’s gyro stabilisation system eliminates false readings caused by the boat moving up and down on the waves (when even quite slight seas can make the sea bottom look “hilly”, even when it is actually dead flat). Instead, it shows the sea floor exactly as it is, providing a big advantage for those searching for fish-holding structures.
AXIOM RealVision’s new four-in-one transducer combines CHIRP DownVision, CHIRP SideVision, High Frequency CHIRP and RealVision 3D in a single transducer housing while the Wide Spectrum CHIRP sonar transmits on 60 different frequencies, delivering life-like sonar images and fish targeting.
Featuring rugged all glass multi-touch displays and sleek and slim bezel-less designs, AXIOM RealVision also comes complete with WiFi connectivity, giving instant access to Raymarine apps, feature updates and on demand weather. There is also an USB port for external drives or remote card readers — and to provide handy charging for smartphones or tablets.
AXIOM RealVision also supports Miracast, enabling wireless repeating images to generic Miracast devices and TVs.
Raymarine Thermal Cameras with AI
Raymarine FLIR’s latest compact pan and tilt thermal cameras, the new M100 and M200, come with an integrated multi-core video processor and advanced artificial intelligence.
Designed to provide additional safety for those travelling at night, in fog or in heavy weather, the cameras use new artificial intelligence and video analytics technologies to identify “non-water” objects (such as other boats, obstacles or navigation markers) in the vicinity and alert those on board about the possible danger.
When paired with Raymarine’s new AXIOM multifunction displays, the thermal cameras use Raymarine FLIR’s clever new ClearCruise™ intelligent thermal analytics technology to quickly identify nearby bridges, docks, buoys and debris in the water. It will also verify radar returns and make it much faster to find people in the water.
Australasian debut for new Garmin Panoptix
Garmin’s new Panoptix Forward PS51-TH thru-hull transducer will make its Australasian debut at the 2017 Hutchwilco New Zealand Boat Show.
Designed to give boaters more confidence and peace of mind when navigating unfamiliar water, the new phased-array multi-beam transducer incorporates Panoptix FrontVü forward-looking sonar, which displays the bottom up to 90m ahead of the boat at 8-10 times the current water depth.
Coupled with its fast update rate, the PS51-TH delivers almost instant feedback of what’s in front of the boat to provide the information skippers need to make critical navigation decisions and the time to react to obstacles by changing course, if needed.
Thanks to its narrow beam, forward-looking sonar (20 degrees), the PS51-TH allows skippers to focus on the bottom in front of the boat and shows fewer false positives of obstructions off to each side of the boat. It also includes an AHRS sensor for motion stabilisation in rough water conditions.
