At this year’s PSP Southampton Boat Show, leading marine electronics manufacturer, Raymarine, will be launching its latest range of innovative electronic navigation equipment at the Raymarine Live Technology Show’ at 13:30, Friday 13 September on stand G088. The Raymarine stand will be a live technology display area, enabling visitors to see the full suite of Raymarine products in operation.
The compact dimension, big specification format of Raymarine’s new aSeries multifunction displays (MFDs) received another boost as the company’s latest aSeries models will make their UK debut at the show; expanding screen sizes to 7” and adding Wi-Fi, plus new sonar options to the extensive list of aSeries capabilities.
All the aSeries models, whether 5.7” or 7” screen size, MFD only, MFD with built-in sonar or MFD with CHIRP Downvision™, are now available in a Wi-Fi version. Raymarine mobile apps can be downloaded to smartphones and tablets which can then be used to access Wi-Fi-equipped aSeries MFDs; giving boaters full access and control of charts, sonar, radar and more – from anywhere onboard.
Introducing the very latest in autopilot technology, the Evolution™ combines advanced aerospace guidance technology with Raymarine’s marine autopilot expertise to deliver a new level of accurate autopilot control. This innovative breakthrough in autopilot intelligence uses Evolution™ AI control algorithms which enable Evolution™ autopilots to perceive their environment and then instantly calculate and evolve steering commands to maximize performance. The result is precise and confident course keeping, regardless of vessel speed or sea conditions.
The combination of CHIRP and Downvision™ sonar, launched earlier this year to great acclaim in Raymarine’s ground-breaking Dragonfly™, has now expanded across the Raymarine range in the new a68 and a78 formats, and the new CP100 network sonar module. The CP100 “black box” network sonar module brings CHIRP DownVision™ to Raymarine’s latest generation MFDs (multifunction displays), showing photo-like underwater images of fish targets and structure down to 600ft.
Detecting floating objects, navigation aids, other vessels and even people on the water is made easy using FLIR thermal imaging technology and now even small boats can see at night thanks to the new T200 Series fixed mount thermal night vision camera – also on display at the show. These excellent value fixed-mount thermal cameras bring ownership of genuine FLIR thermal imaging technology within the grasp of more boaters than ever before.
The full range of products on display at PSP Southampton Boat Show will include Multifunction Displays, HD and SHD Digital Radars, Autopilots, Instruments, HD Sounders, VHF Radios, AIS Receivers and Transceivers, and Thermal Imaging Cameras.
