FLIR Systems has introduced Raymarine YachtSense, an advanced digital control system, which can provide command and awareness of a vessel’s electrical systems.

The company said that the modular nature of the system can redefine the future of ship automation for technical installers and boat builders.

The system is designed to be reliable, flexible, and easy to use, and offers customisable and failsafe marine automation via intuitive control of on-board systems through any Raymarine Axiom multifunction display.

YachtSense’s modular architecture enables boat builders to plan and standardise digital control solutions that are scalable across their whole model series.

The YachtSense system starts with the YachtSense Master Module and Power Supply Module and is completed with a group of additional multi-channel signal modules.

An individual module interfaces with particular kind of on-board devices and systems such as pumps, windlass, swim platforms, climate control, generators, and other on-vessel mechanical systems.

YachtSense’s tailored Axiom user interface options can help create modern vessel automation solutions for marine manufacturers and installers.

It provides captains with overall control of every on-board system from any Axiom multifunction display with simple, touchscreen operation.

FLIR Systems Raymarine general manager Gregoire Outters said: “YachtSense is the new standard in premium digital control solution for today’s most sophisticated vessels. Our smart, modular, and expandable system gives total freedom to boat builders to design ultra-reliable and highly tailored solutions that best meet the individual needs of their specific vessels and customers.”

Master Modules feature an LCD for system diagnostics and an integrated keypad for manual override.

Backed by a three-year warranty, YachtSense modules are kept inside rugged IPX6 waterproof enclosures.
