AX8™ Marine Thermal Monitoring System

Gain an entirely new view of your vessel's mechanical system with the FLIR AX8 thermal monitoring camera. Combining thermal and visible cameras in a small, affordable package, the AX8 integrates with Raymarine multifunction displays (MFDs) and sends audible and visual alerts when the temperature of machine parts rise above preset thresholds.

Keep a watchful eye on such critical equipment as engines, exhaust manifolds, and shaft bearings and spot problems before they leave you stranded on the water. And FLIR's exclusive MSXr imaging blends visible and thermal images for more detailed imagery that is easier to understand.

Spot Potential Problems Before They Happen
State-of-the-art thermal monitoring of engines and onboard machinery. Powered by Lepton, FLIR's most advanced micro thermal camera. Exclusive Multi-Spectral Dynamic Imaging (MSX®) for easy-to-understand thermal imagery.

On Board Thermal Alarming & Visual Analysis
Stream live thermal video of exhaust manifolds, propeller shafts, electrical panels, and other machinery. Program specific areas to generate automated spot alarms when temperatures exceed pre-set thresholds. Evaluate ongoing temperature trends. Help avoid costly repairs and unwanted breakdowns.

Raymarine Integration
View thermal, visible, and MSX video imagery on Raymarine LightHouse IIT MFDs. Continuous thermal monitoring with audible and visual alarms across the Raymarine network. Connect up to eight AX8 cameras using Ethernet.

View and record thermal video and snapshots from any Raymarine display on the network. Easy setup and alarm programming with a PC and web browser.
