FLIR M100/M200 THERMAL CAMERAS
The compact, fixedmount new M132 and M232 thermal-imaging cameras from FLIR offer 320x240 resolution, 2x digital zoom, and prices that put these systems within budget for many boaters. The M132 ($2,495) features an adjustable tilt camera, while the M232 ($3,495) offers both adjustable tilt and pan.
These cameras can also automatically identify objects that pose a collision threat. When networked with a Raymarine Axiom or Axiom Pro multifunction display, the FLIR Clear Cruise IR analytics identify obstacles such as boats and navigation markers that enter the 24-by-18-degree field of view and alert the captain to them.
This means you don’t have to constantly stare at the display to stay safe at night. The Clear Cruise can also run in the background, so you don’t even need to have FLIR imaging on the display to receive alerts. Each camera is around 6 pounds and measures 9.03 inches tall by 6.34 inches in diameter.
