NEW FLIR AX8 – Marine Thermal Monitoring System

Gain an entirely new view of your vessel’s mechanical system with the new FLIR AX8 thermal monitoring camera. Combining thermal and visible cameras in a small, affordable package, the AX8 integrates with Raymarine multifunction displays (MFDs) and sends audible and visual alerts when the temperature of machine parts rise above preset thresholds.

Keep a watchful eye on such critical equipment as engines, exhaust manifolds, and shaft bearings and spot problems before they leave you stranded on the water. And FLIR’s exclusive MSX® imaging blends visible and thermal images for more detailed imagery that is easier to understand.
