The NTSC configuration of PS32 Scout Thermal Monocular from FLIR is a handheld thermal monocular useful for daylight and night vision applications. The 320x240 VOx thermal sensor measures the heat signature within the field of view and enables the operator to see beyond smoke, dust, and fog obscuring the visual scene. Thermal imaging creates an image by discriminating between differences in temperature, allowing the PS32 to consistently operate in daylight, pitch dark, and dynamic lighting conditions. To optimize the transmitted image for specific applications, this monocular features two selectable polarity modes and InstAlert mode for quicker identification of people and wildlife by highlighting body heat in red.
The dedicated polarity, brightness, and zoom buttons located on the top of the housing enable intuitive control of the PS32 functions without taking your eye off the display. A shuttered eyepiece prevents light from the viewfinder display from illuminating the operator's face and helps maintain covert posture. This monocular includes a fixed-focus 19mm lens that provides a 24-degree horizontal viewing angle that is well-suited for mid-range observations. The weather sealed housing, handheld design, and integrated LED task light make the PS32 a full-featured thermal monocular for recreational use.
