Raymarine, global leaders in high-performance marine electronics for the recreational boating and marine first responder and law enforcement markets, announced today 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.
Axiom 2 Pro is the most powerful all-in-one Axiom system ever developed by Raymarine with a blazing fast six-core processor and intuitive 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 that is perfect for premium cruising and sailing vessels, while the Axiom 2 Pro RVM is engineered specifically for the avid sport angler.
Axiom 2 Pro RVM models come standard with the all-new RealVision MAX 3D sonar built in. This powerful new sonar solution combines CHIRP DownVision, SideVision and RealVision MAX 3D channels that all 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. When combined, Axiom 2 Pro RVM is the ideal solution for today’s high-performance center console fishing boats that fish both shallow coast waters and deep blue water territory.
The flagship Axiom 2 XL is also new to the Raymarine multifunction chartplotter lineup. Designed to grace the helms of the most exclusive 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 that is intuitive, yet extremely powerful.
Axiom 2 XL users can also enjoy RealVision MAX sonar technology with the addition of the new RVM-1600 3D Sonar Module to their network. This black-box sonar processor has all the same features and functionality found in the Axiom 2 Pro, but in a black box design that can be added to the new Axiom 2 XL series, or any other legacy Raymarine Axiom system. Anglers adding RealVision MAX systems can also choose between the transom mounted RVM100 or the through-hull RVM400-series of transducers, optimized for all the new RealVision MAX sonar technologies.
“Our loyal customers demand the most powerful and durable navigation and sonar tools available, and our new lineup of Axiom 2 Pro products deliver,” said Grégoire Outters, General Manager, Raymarine. “Whether you are 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 line up, Raymarine 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 remarkable 160° field of view, making it ideal for use with Raymarine’s award-winning Clear Cruise™ Augmented Reality system. CAM300 also has built-in near infrared illumination making it ideal for monitoring remote locations, blind spots and engine rooms in both daylight and total darkness.
