Detect humans, wildlife, livestock, running combustion and jet engines, hot wires, infrared lasers and lamps, or other hidden heat sources with the Micro 1 640 Ultra-Compact Thermal Monocular from Night Optics. This ultra-compact thermal imager fits on the palm of your hand and brings a number of useful featuresto the table, such as an uncooled vanadium oxide (VOx) microbolometer with resolution of 640x480 and a brilliant 600x800 AMOLED display. While the thermal imaging sensor does not require cooling and detects infrared radiation in the spectral range 7.5-13.5µm, Long Wave Infrared Radiation (LWIR), the electronics provide viewing capabilities through either its internal display with a refresh rate of 30 Hz or to external recorder or screen in NTSC or PAL formats. The 19mm, f/1.0 germanium lens system offers a maximum field of view of 9 x 12° and a close focus distance of 26.2'. If you need a close-up on your target, the system allows for digital zoom of up to 4x. Additionally, the device features an Image Brightness Control and accelerometer for keeping displayed images upright regardless of actual orientation of monocular. Also noteworthy is a single calibration of the thermal core performed on start-up, which saves battery life and ensures quiet operation.
The housing is made of a lightweight and durable polymer and has a countered shape with knurled adjusters and rings. To protect the germanium objective lens from dirt, scratches, and debris, the housing has a flip-out objective lens cup. With the wide and rubber eyecup, you will have a comfortable orbit-to-eyepiece contact and will not spill out any display light to expose yourself. The control buttons are arranged in a staggered configuration for an easy-to-reach, one-handed operation. With the included adapter you can also mount the device to your choice of weapons or headgear.
