Raymarine launches hand-held thermal marine cameras

New compact TH Series provides go-anywhere thermal night vision for everyone on the water

July 2011

Sophisticated thermal imaging night vision technology is now available in a compact, hand-held camera format with the launch of Raymarine’s new TH Series. The new TH24 and TH32 Thermal Cameras are light weight and easy-to-use, giving boaters the power to see clearly for up to a kilometre distance, even in total darkness.

Priced from £1295/€1495 ex tax, these rugged, all-weather hand held cameras use the same proven FLIR thermal imaging technology as Raymarine’s top of the range fixed mount thermal night vision systems. This new affordable, portable format makes thermal imaging accessible and usable by a wide audience.

The TH Series thermal cameras make pictures from heat, not light. As everything – even ice – has a ‘thermal’ print, objects show up through the thermal energy they emit. Thermal imaging means users see landmarks, bridge abutments, and other vessels clearly in all light conditions from daylight to complete darkness. Thermal night vision will show rocks, buoys, floating debris, and even helps find people in the water, vital when just a few minutes makes all the difference in a matter of survival.

The TH Series cameras are easy to use, with just three button operation, and a built-in LED task light. An internal camera (Li-lon) battery provides the power, and there is a USB cable to charge the battery when not in use. There is an audible alert indicating when the camera is turned on, and when functions are changed. There are three thermal image modes; ‘white-hot’, ‘black-hot’ and ‘red-hot’. The TH24 has a range of up to 895m for sizeable objects such as a vessel, and up to 320m for an object, such as a person, in the water. The TH32 model also features a 2x digital zoom capability, and has an extended range of vision, up to 1.23km for a vessel and to 450m for objects or people in the water.

Weighing just 340g, the TH Series cameras bring thermal imagining technology within reach of everyone and are ‘must-haves’ as safety equipment for any boater.
