The PAL configuration of HS-324 Patrol 8.3Hz Thermal Monocular from FLIR is a handheld thermal monocular capable of outputting the transmitting image to a remote monitor or recording device. 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 HS-324 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 five selectable brightness levels.
The dedicated polarity, brightness, and zoom buttons located on the top of the housing enable intuitive control of the HS-324 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 an interchangeable 19mm lens that provides a 24-degree horizontal viewing angle that is well-suited for mid-range observations. Also included is a hot shoe attachment for connecting the power adapter as well as an s-video output cable for remote viewing and recording. The weather sealed housing, bayonet lens mounting system, and standard1/4" tripod mount make the HS-324 a full-featured thermal monocular for first responders and tactical professionals.
