Raymarine launches five new product lines
Marine electronics specialist Raymarine has announced the launch of five new products, which include the Axiom 2 Pro and Axiom 2 XL family of multifunction chartplotter displays, as well as a new suite of sonar products and an advanced marine camera system.
The firm, which specialises in high-performance marine electronics, plans to unveil the new product lines during the upcoming Miami International Boat Show (15-19 February 2023).
Raymarine says the new Axiom 2 Pro is the most powerful all-in-one Axiom system it has ever developed, with a six-core processor and LightHouse 4 operating system. Available in 9-, 12- and 16-inch sizes in two variations, the Axiom 2 Pro S includes embedded High CHIRP sonar designed for cruising and sailing vessels, while the Axiom 2 Pro RVM is engineered specifically for sport anglers.
Axiom 2 Pro RVM models come standard with the all-new RealVision MAX 3D sonar built in. This new sonar solution combines CHIRP DownVision, SideVision and RealVision MAX 3D channels, which are said to benefit from the faster ping rate and tighter beams, delivering exceptionally clear imagery of the ocean bottom, fish-holding structure, and the position of fish relative to the boat.
The high-frequency CHIRP sonar channel also boasts 600-watts of output power, significantly expanding the depth range to 1,200 feet, and greatly improving the clarity of fish targets detected throughout the water column.
Axiom 2 Pro RVM also has a built in 1kW CHIRP sonar, supporting Airmar broadband transducers, giving the system the ability to clearly detect fish to depths of 3,000 feet.
The flagship Axiom 2 XL is also new to the Raymarine multifunction chartplotter lineup. Said to be designed for sport fishing yachts, offshore ‘battle wagons’ and luxury cruisers, the Axiom 2 XL lineup is available in 16-, 19-, 22- and 24-inch sizes. These displays feature enhanced networking and extended multimedia capabilities like HDMI input and output, and touchscreen pass-through. Axiom 2 XL screens are also built on the new six-core platform with LightHouse 4 OS.
“Our loyal customers demand the most powerful and durable navigation and sonar tools available, and our new lineup of Axiom 2 Pro products deliver,” says Grégoire Outters, general manager of Raymarine. “Whether you are a professional offshore angler or a long-distance cruiser, Axiom 2 Pro promises the clearest sonar pictures at the greatest ranges in a display that is built to withstand the harshest conditions thrown at you.”
Rounding out the Axiom 2 Pro lineup, Raymarine has also added the new CAM300 Marine Camera to its portfolio of products. Just slightly larger than a golf ball, the CAM300 features full high-definition resolution and a 160° field of view. CAM300 also has built-in near-infrared illumination for good visibility in low light.
