FLIR partners with CZone on integrated system

Publish date:

FLIR Systems, parent of Raymarine, said its Raymarine Axiom multifunction display is now compatible with BEP CZone digital control and monitoring systems. The collaboration will allow boatbuilders and systems integrators to provide custom CZone digital switching solutions with graphical interfaces controlled via Raymarine’s Axiom MFDs.

“Today’s boaters expect easy operation, with levels of technology and automation equal to or better than what they have in their homes,” said Jarrod Sager, BEP marine business leader in a statement. “Our CZone technology brings this high-level automation from smart homes to smart boats. By integrating with Raymarine Axiom, we’re able to offer our complete solution to an even broader array of boat and yacht builders around the world.”

Sager said the CZone digital switching simplifies the installation of boat electrical systems through the replacement of traditional switch and fuse panels with networked digital switch interfaces, providing control of on-board electrical systems. When integrated with the Axiom MFD, the CZone system offers control of many types of on-board electrical devices, including lighting and climate control.

“Raymarine and CZone compatibility opens a wide range of integration and customization options for our boatbuilding partners,” said Jim Hands, director of marketing for the Maritime division at FLIR, in the statement.

Hand said the integrated system provides a customized graphical interface solution for boatbuilders and system integrators to create CZone control pages that integrate with Axiom’s LightHouse 3 dashboard app.

“It’s a win-win for the industry,” said Hands.
