SES Congratulates FLIR on METS Win

21 November 2009

Ships Electronic Services (SES) UK distributor for FLIR Systems, has congratulated the company on its new M-626L Series Thermal Night Vision System which has been announced as the overall DAME AWARD winner at METS in Amsterdam this week. The judges were impressed by the unit’s sleek design, Ethernet capability, and ease of installation, stating that the unit provides user satisfaction beyond anything currently on the market. Even in total darkness the captain of a vessel can see channel markers, other boats, people in the water and the shore line from greater distances and clarity than ever before.

The M-626L system incorporates a micro-lux, low-light camera for improved visibility during twilight hours and a 26-degree field of view – an improvement of 25% over previous cameras. The unit is operated with a remote joystick which can be located anywhere on the vessel.

SES has worked with FLIR, the premier manufacturer of thermal imaging equipment, for some years. SES Managing Director, Stephen Roper commented, “This is a remarkable piece of equipment and we are delighted it has been recognised as such at METS. The M-626L will provide a significant contribution to safety and security at sea for those vessels which install it. As the UK distributor and service agent for FLIR we are able to offer the M-626L to our many OEM customers with immediate effect and anticipate a high level of installations for 2010.”

The FLIR M-626L Series Thermal Night Vision System won both the Electronics equipment of the show category and the overall DAME Award for best new product.
