Ideal for exploring the outdoors at night, or in complete darkness, the FLIR Scout TK Thermal Monocular is a pocket-sized thermal imaging device that has a multitude of features for night and daytime thermal imaging. Its 160x120 Lepton Core VOx microbolometer is an uncooled and ultra-compact thermal sensor that will help you to reveal hidden warm objects, people, hot pipes or wires, and animals using their thermal signature in total darkness or daytime. Thanks to a compact and ergonomic design, you will be able to easily reach and man its intuitive four-button control pad located on the top panel in a single-handed operation. Despite its compact size, the imager has all the feature of a full-size thermal monocular, such as your choice of imaging palettes: White Hot, Black Hot, InstAlert, Graded Fire, and three others. Additionally, this monocular has video and photo recording capability, and a USB compatibility with your PC. To streamline your viewing experience, the monocular also features a fast 5-second start-up, 9 Hz refresh rate, image brightness control, and a FLIR Proprietary Digital Detail Enhancement image processing technology. To allow you to take it anywhere on your adventures, the housing is engineered to withstand harsh environments. It is compact, waterproof/submersible, and resistant to extreme temperatures. It also offers a wide rubberized eyecup and a rubber covering to provide a sure grip and impact-resistant performance.
"Great tool...Amazing tool !...In reality, that only works if the area is quite close by and the temperatures of nearby objects are cool -- on a hot day, a rock in direct sunlight can retain its heat into the night, and appear brighter than actual warm blooded creatures....The battery lasts for hours and I love the programmable auto shut off and ability to take pictures."
