New from Carlisle & Finch Co., SmartVIEW is a Microprocessor-based Control System, which allows Carlisle & Finch Products (NightFINDER Systems and Standard Searchlight Products), to be controlled from any screen on board the ship or from a remote PC in another location.
The NightFINDER is the combination of a high Intensity Searchlight and Night Vision Camera integrated onto the same Pan/Tilt Base. SmartVIEW enables NightFINDER, as well as any of their standard searchlight products, to be controlled through the Ship’s Integrated Glass Bridge.
In addition to the powerful network connectivity described above, SmartVIEW technology provides the following additional benefits as well: proportional-speed multifunctional joystick, joysticks which “intelligently switch” from searchlight to searchlight, an ethernet connection allowing digital control throughout the Ship’s IT network, and remote internet control from any PC throughout the world.
Carlisle & Finch has targeted shipments to be delivered in the second quarter of 2014, with orders placed in the fourth quarter of 2013.
