The FLIR AX8 thermal monitoring camera watches critical equipment on your vessel, including engines, exhaust manifolds, and shaft bearings, to spot problems before you're stranded on the water. The AX8 integrates with Raymarine multifunction displays (MFDs) and sends audible and visual alerts when the temperature of machine parts rise above preset thresholds. Featuring FLIR’s MSX® imaging, which blends imagery from visible and thermal cameras, the FLIR AX8's detailed imagery is easier to understand.

State-of-the-art thermal monitoring of critical equipment onboard.

  • Spot potential problems before they happen

    FLIR's Exclusive Multi-Spectral Dynamic Imaging (MSX®) creates thermal imaging that is easier to understand.

  • Thermal Alarming and Visual Analysis

    Program specific areas to generate automated spot alarms when temperatures exceed pre-set thresholds.

  • Raymarine Integration

    View thermal, visible, and MSX video imagery on Raymarine LightHouse II™ MFDs.
