FLIR has announced a new, more affordable version of the popular but pricey M-Series thermal night-vision camera.
The new M-Series from FLIR brings night vision into range of more mariners by eliminating the low-light micro-lux camera feature of the original model. The price comes down, but at the same time, performance goes up. The new model provides a 50 percent improvement in range performance over earlier night-vision cameras and incorporates Ethernet connectivity for interface with other on-board electronics. Also, this model retains the full array of infrared color palettes and the capability to network with any monitor or multifunction display that has an auxiliary video input. It also incorporates Accu-Point position control for continuous feedback of imager position. $9,995. www.flir.com
