R Electronics, Australia’s exclusive distributor of world-class marine electronics introduces the first thermal night vision camera to be controlled from the Furuno Navnet 3D navigation platform.
Thanks to a unique partnership between OceanView and Furuno, the Apollo II night vision camera
can now be fully integrated into the NavNet 3D navigation system, allowing boat owners to control
their OceanView camera’s functions through the Furuno system.
R Electronics managing director Errol Cain said this meant there were no extra controls taking up
space in the helm.
“It makes navigation quick and easy,” Errol said.
“OceanView cameras are well-matched to Furuno’s NavNet 3D system which makes controlling a
boat’s night vision functions, such as tilt, pan and zoom, simple and effective.
“The Apollo II is OceanView’s first camera to be integrated with Furuno’s NavNet 3D but other
cameras such as Poseidon and Zeus are also compatible.
“Furuno’s NavNet 3D system uses TimeZero technology which facilitates chart redraw, chart
panning, changing chart display modes, zooming, and other chart handling functions. It is fully
digitised with highly sensitive digital sensors for radar and fish finders. Combined with the Apollo II
thermal night vision camera, the system is ideal for sportfishermen, megayachts, sport yachts,
military, fire and police boats.”
