Raymarine launches gyro stabilised thermal night vision

Miami International Boat Show, 16th – 20th February, Booth A100
February 2012

Raymarine announced the newest addition to its family of thermal night vision products for boaters, the T470SC gyro-stabilised thermal camera.

Engineered with FLIR thermal imaging technology the T470SC is equipped with a high resolution, long-range thermal imager, a color low light visible TV camera with 10:1 optical zoom, and active gyro-stabilisation. 


Using internal gyroscopes that compensate for vessel movement automatically, the T470SC’s active gyro-stabilisation provides a steady image when seas are rough. Now boaters can have the best of both worlds: the power to see small objects from great distances, and smooth imagery on the open water.

The T470SC also has a color TV camera with a continuous zoom lens that automatically matches its field of view to that of the thermal camera, so users won’t get disoriented when switching between cameras.

The T470SC integrates seamlessly with Raymarine multifunction displays including Raymarine’s all new e-Series multifunction displays with HybridTouch™. The T470SC combined with an e-Series display gives boaters simple touch screen pan and tilt control, plus full access to all camera functions directly from the e-Series interface.

Housed in a rugged, waterproof gimbal enclosure that provides continuous 360° pan and +/-90° tilt capability, theT470SC provides horizon-to-horizon thermal imaging or low light color camera coverage.
