The M-Series combines a thermal imaging camera with a low light camera. It provides crisp, clear thermal imagery in total darkness and light fog or smoke. Packaged in a small, ultra-compact gimbal it is designed for the most demanding maritime applications. The FLIR M-Series is a perfect tool for night time navigation, shipboard security, man overboard situations, anti-piracy and many other applications. The FLIR M-Series is the standard for maritime thermal imaging systems against which all others are compared. The M-Series control panel is fully sealed for use in a maritime environment. Just like the camera itself it meets IP66 standards. The control knob provides precise proportional speed control. Use it to have the M-Series look in the exact direction you want. The JCU Puck functions like a joystick - it can be moved left or right, or fore and aft, and it can be rotated in either direction. It can also be pressed down (like a mouse click) or pulled up. It is used to move the Pan/Tilt position of the camera and to navigate through the on-screen menus.
