FLIR Systems has introduced the Raymarine Axiom XL line of multifunction displays with screen sizes up to 24 inches. The company said two Axiom XL models are immediately available. Designed for high-end yachts and glass bridge installations, the Axiom XL can be installed in open cockpits and enclosed bridge stations.
Raymarine says the MFDs are fully waterproof and incorporate Raymarine’s optical bonding display technology. They are available in 16-, 19-, 22- and 24-inch display sizes and with their edge-to-edge glass construction lets designers create seamless installations when multiple units are used.
The Axiom XL network has three ethernet ports for connecting with network sensors or with additional units in the Axiom family. They also have an integrated FLIR thermal imaging camera that supports navigation awareness and safety. HDMI input lets Axiom XL serve as a remote touchscreen PC or entertainment display.
Each Axiom XL has a quad-core processor and is powered by Raymarine’s LightHouse 3 operating system. Captains have the choice of touchscreen control or the Raymarine RMK-10 keypad.
“Axiom XL represents a significant milestone for the Raymarine brand,” said Gregoire Outters, vice president and general manager of FLIR Maritime, in a statement. “The introduction of the Axiom line last year, followed by the Axiom Pro, received recognition by the marine industry and customers alike. With Axiom XL, we’re now delivering a glass bridge solution that brings simplicity and superior performance to larger yachts and our premium boat brand partners.”
The new Axiom XL16 and X19 displays are available through FLIR’s dealer network. The XL24 will be available in July followed by the XL22 in September.
