Raymarines touch of genius can now see in the dark
Raymarineâ€™s E Series Widescreen has received wide acclaim since its launch and it is about to received an exciting upgrade, with the added seamless integration of thermal imaging control built-in as standard. Existing E Series Widescreens owners will also be able to download this function via a system update.
E Series Widescreen users who purchase one of the new T Series range of Thermal Imaging Cameras will be able to control the camera via the HybridTouchâ„¢ control.
The newly added function will mean the E Series Widescreen continues to be the companyâ€™s most flexible, technically advanced, and easy-to-use multi-function navigation display to date.
Raymarineâ€™s HybridTouchâ„¢ technology gives users the flexibility of touch screen control alongside the use of the UniControlâ„¢ which integrates cursor and OK key in one rotary wheel plus the traditional hard buttons; a seamless mix of both methods. A completely new user interface means users can easily personalise their home screen, setting up the E Series Widescreen to their specific requirements. A built-in tutorial guides users through the many new functions and features available.
The E Series Widescreen comes with embedded Navionics ready-to navigate cartography, and is compatible with Navionics charts including Gold, Platinum, and Platinum Plus with TurboView and comes in three sizes â€“ the E90W, E120W and E140W. The touch screen features enable fast chart panning, instant access to chart and navigation data simply by tapping the screen. A full â€˜qwertyâ€™ on-screen keyboard is used to edit and name routes and waypoints. Touch-by-touch manual route building is simplicity itself.
With visibility and clarity in all conditions key criteria for all users, the E Series Widescreen has a brilliant sunlight viewable colour display. It uses optically bonded LCD display technology to improve the contrast, and provide maximum readability. With fully customisable screens, users can see at a glance everything from the fish below them, to the â€˜hiddenâ€™ hazards viewable via the HD radar, through to engine data and fuel levels. Up to five E Series Widescreens can be networked together via SeaTalkhs. Connect up to eight SeaTalk hs nodes (a node is an MFD or sensor) on a single network using the SeaTalk hs network switch.
The E Series Widescreen retails from Â£2395 ex.VAT
