Raymarine Adds T200 to Range of Thermal Night Vision Cameras
The T200 detects floating objects, navigation aids, other vessels, and even people in the water using FLIR thermal imaging technology and now even small boats can see at night with the fixed mount thermal night vision cameras. Engineered for smaller vessels, the T200 Series is both compact and lightweight. The T200’s dimensions (7” high and 5.9” in diameter) make it best suited for smaller vessels where larger thermal camera models were previously considered impractical. The small footprint allows the T200 Series to be mounted on any cabin roof, radar arch or mast.
The T200 has a 2 cable install using Power-Over-Ethernet and an analogue composite video output. The angle and direction of the single payload thermal camera is fixed at the time of installation. There is no need for a separate controller as the T200 is controlled directly from a Raymarine multifunction display (MFD) giving access to color palettes, white hot/black hot, digital zoom, and camera configuration functions.
The T200 Series cameras are available in either 320 x 240 or 640 x 480 resolutions. The 320 x 240 resolution model features a wide-angle 13 mm lens and 2× digital zoom. The high-resolution 640 x 480 version offers long-range performance using a 25mm lens and 4× digital zoom capability. There is also a choice of NTSC or PAL versions of the T200. The T200 can also be fitted as part of a larger T300 or T400 thermal camera system.
Available April 2013, T200 pricing starts at $3499.99 for 320x240 models and $4499.99 for 640x480 models.
