CHIRP-powered Dragonfly®, new sonar modules, and eS Series multifunction displays transform anglers’ underwater vision

July 2015

eS Series HybridTouch™ Multifunction Displays

Making its North American debut, Raymarine’s new eS Series line of high performance multifunction displays features a choice of 7”, 9” and 12” displays, each with an attractive, glass bridge-style design that blends seamlessly with today’s fishing boat helm stations. TheeS Series offers intuitive HybridTouch screen interaction, a fast 50-channel, 10Hz integrated GPS, and Raymarine’s CHIRP DownVision™ sonar built-in. Engineered to meet the demands of open fishing boats, the new eS Series also features super bright, optically-bonded LCD displays to ensure that sonar images and maps are easy to view under all lighting conditions.

At the heart of each eS Series model is Raymarine’s revolutionary Lighthouse II operating system. Keeping anglers in mind, the LightHouse II home screen is easily personalized with one-touch access to sonar and mapping applications. Expanding eS Series with LightHouse II is even easier with high performance network sensor options, including CHIRP SideVision™ sonar, HD Color radar, IP video, and FLIR’s signature thermal night vision. The eS Series can expand even further with support for multiple displays, Evolution autopilot control, entertainment, engine, and digital switching integration options.


Dragonfly 4, 5, and Wi-Fish™

The new Dragonfly range offers advanced CHIRP sonar vision, superior color displays, and wireless mobile device integration.Dragonfly uses wide-spectrum CHIRP DownVision™ technology to create photo-like images of fish and underwater objects. Unlike conventional sonars that transmit a single frequency with each pulse, Dragonfly's CHIRP sonar simultaneously pulses across a wide spectrum of frequencies for more lifelike images with higher resolution. The entire Dragonfly line delivers superior deep water performance to 600 ft. (180 m), with reliable high-speed bottom tracking. Like its award winning sonar, the Dragonfly user interface is designed for clarity and simple operation. A simple cursor pad interface allows anglers to quickly dial in their favorite displays, and ¬with its unique all-weather, super bright display, Dragonfly provides images with high fidelity under blazing sun or driving rain.

In addition to the Dragonfly 4 and 5 models, the new Wi-Fish™ sonar for mobile devices joins the Dragonfly range. Built on the Dragonfly sonar platform, Wi-Fish™ is a black box wireless sonar designed to work exclusively with smartphones and tablets, letting fisherman access CHIRP DownVision™ from anywhere on board.


CP570, CP470, and CP370 ClearPulse™ Sonar Modules

Designed from the ground up to give anglers a truly competitive edge, Raymarine’s new line of ClearPulse™ sonars feature game-changing digital filtering technology that eliminates unwanted clutter and allows anglers to distinguish bait from predator fish with stunning clarity. Leading this powerful new blue water sonar model lineup is the CP570 professional CHIRP sonar, with up to 4kW of power. Next are the high performance CP470 CHIRP sonar with 2kW output and the CP370 digital sonar with 1kW power output. Equipped with Raymarine’s latest generation of intelligent signal processing, these sonars can see through dense schools of baitfish, identify thermoclines, and target desired game fish with exceptional clarity, so anglers can spend more time fishing and less time adjusting the sonar. All three models are compatible with Raymarine LightHouse II-powered multifunction displays, including the new eS Series line of HybridTouch MFDs.

“As the World’s Sixth Sense, FLIR and our Raymarine brand are committed to giving anglers greater success on the water” said Grégoire Outters, Vice President and General Manager of FLIR Maritime. “Our best-in-class sonar range with wide spectrum CHIRP technology addresses the needs of both fresh and saltwater anglers. From occasional weekend bass fisherman to the competitive tournament angler, our sonars deliver unmatched underwater vision and ease-of-use”
