From FLIR Systems, here’s the ultimate platform to have command on the boat’s electrical systems. It’s Raymarine YachtSense, and works with any Axiom MFD.
If you are a control freak, this one’s for you. But we’d suggest it also if you like safety, reliability, simplicity. Raymarine YachtSense is a digital control system allowing total command of a vessel’s electrical systems. It has just been revealed in a press conference during Metstrade Connect online event, as the Company also spoke of their reaction to the pandemic. But let’s see what the new product is about.
Raymarine YachtSense is modular, so it can be adapted to any boat
The scalable architecture of Raymarine YachtSense gives boat builders the chance to design and standardize digital control solutions which can be adapted across an entire model range. Each system begins with the YachtSense master module and power supply module, and is completed with a combination of additional multi-channel signal modules. The individual modules interface with specific types of onboard devices and systems: from bilge pumps, lights,climate controls, entertainment systems, anchor winch, generators, and other electric systems.
YachtSense uses a specific interface on the multifunction Raymarine Axiom screens, and it can be customized by marine manufacturers and installers.
For the highest level of safety, it delivers three levels of electrical redundancy. Master modules feature an integrated keypad for manual override, as well as an LCD for system diagnostics. All YachtSense modules are housed in rugged IPX6 waterproof enclosures and are covered by a three-year warranty.
Although it has just been introduced, the first complete Raymarine YachtSense system has been installed on a SACS Rebel 55 maxi-rib, in Italy.
During the Metstrade online event, Raymarine also spoke about the situation during the pandemic year. After some tough months, like all the similar sectors, due to the several lockdowns, business picked up in late summer and early autumn. They claim revenues and profitability up to near-record levels, while they continue to invest in innovation. Talking of this, during 2020 Raymarine has focused on developing the successor to the award-winning Axiom, with the launch in June of the Axiom+ line of multifunction navigation displays. The Company also gave the industry a preview of their entirely new cartography platform LightHouse Charts.
