Safety boost for night time marine

'M Series UR'    Drew Valentine    Click Here to view large photo
Two recent updates to the FLIR M-Series marine night vision range will result in a wider field of view and even greater range for added safety.

FLIR says its 640x480 thermal imaging, M-Series cameras provide four-times the thermal resolution and more than twice the range performance compared to other systems.

‘M-Series cameras let you see more – and see farther – than ever before, even in the dead of night,’ a FLIR spokesperson said.

The Premium Multi-sensor Maritime Night Vision System has been boosted by the release of the M-625L and the M-324L – both models are now equipped with Tau cores which have benefited from a US$6M R&D program with operators now experiencing multiple performance improvements.

Key benefits include:

• Improved image quality from FLIR’s newest and most advanced detector designs
• A wider field of view in the M-324L for broader situational awareness and less perceived motion in rough seas
• More than 10% range improvement in the M-625L
Other standard M-Series features:
• Automatic window heaters keep both sets of optics free of ice to deliver crystal clear video
• 2X and 4X e-zoom functions give the thermal camera best-in-class range performance
• Mount gimbal ball-up or ball-down for added flexibility
• Simple Ethernet connections and IP addressability make the system simple to install and easy to control
• Proprietary, patent-pending, image enhancement algorithms called Digital Detail Enhancement (DDE) let all of FLIR’s front-line products see more in the most challenging conditions
• Standard video signal displays on any monitor with an auxiliary video input.
• Watch thermal and lowlight video simultaneously on multiple displays or single multi-function display
