"Night navigation" Marine night-vision goggles is a specially designed for ship's safe navigation at night of high-tech night vision products, set high sensitivity infrared detectors, infrared germanium lens, the light camera, spherical shield, high speed yuntai is equal to one, it can penetrate the dark, in the fog and snow environment also has good performance, can provide all-weather monitoring image. In the ship navigation at night, it can timely monitor the obstacles on the channel and the situation of the water surface. In the daytime, the use of high-definition color automatic focusing camera can monitor the distant targets on the water surface, so that the pilot can make a quick response, and effectively protect the safety of the ship and its personnel and cargo.
It can also realize 24-hour full-color monitoring in a dark environment without lighting. Low-light cameras can also be used to monitor the water surface around the ship in high definition during the day. The top low light camera monitors the sea surface and the bottom low light camera monitors the foredeck. At night, when the temperature is +25℃.RH65%, the detection distance of Marine night vision instrument to identify thermal targets above 24m×8m is about 4-5km, and the recognition distance is about 2-3 km.
The surface is anti - oxidation, anti - salt spray, anti - mold spraying. Hurricane-resistant, capable of operating at winds up to 150 kilometers per hour. Remote defrost, anti-fogging function, waterproof and high and low temperature resistance characteristics, can adapt to all kinds of harsh environment all-weather work, suitable for all kinds of ship installation and use.
The harm of shipwreck accident is very big, therefore, the safety of ship navigation is the common concern of all countries in the world, and the prevention of ship traffic accident is a major issue of ship safety management. Ship operation safety directly affects the economic benefits of shipping companies and shipowners. More related to the safety of crew, ships, goods and ports.
