Built to enhance the effectiveness of law enforcement personnel and outdoor gurus, the FLIR Breach PTQ136 320 x 256 Thermal Monocular passively detects the thermal signatures of objects and allows you to spot suspects, intruders, wildlife, and other warm objects in total darkness. Additionally, due to the nature of thermal imaging, it allows you to see through smoke, fog, and light foliage. To provide penetrating thermal vision, FLIR outfitted the device with their Boson VOx microbolometer, featuring a 320 x 256 pixel resolution, long-wave infrared sensitivity, and a 60 Hz refresh rate.

With the help of internal electronics and a 1280 x 960 Quad-VGA FLCO display, you can view or save high-contrast imagery and enhance it with FLIR's proprietary Digital Detail Enhancement feature with seven color palettes to choose from. To enhance your viewing experience, the device provides 1-4x digital zoom and a short 0.82' minimum focusing distance. You can save up to 1000 still images or 2.5 hours of video on internal memory and transfer them later to your computer via a built-in USB Type-C port.

To ensure functionality anywhere you go, the lightweight (7.4 oz) and durable polymer body is waterproof (rated IP67) and impact-resistant. The device also provides a wide winged rubber eyecup to ensure comfortable contact with your face and to prevent leakage of light. On the right side, you will find a short mounting rail, compatible with many optional FLIR adapters, for attaching the monocular to headgear or firearms. On the top, it has a control pad with buttons and a CR-123A battery compartment with a tethered cap.

FLIR Breach PTQ136 Reviews

A backpacking marvel

By theABCman
Rated 4 out of 5
Date: 2022-01-03

Have taken this piece of gear backpacking in bear country and come way impressed. Saw several wild animals in the night, was able to follow the(stone) trail during the night as well. I use this piece almost every night when letting the dogs out in the yard, can see when they do their business and come back. Its a show stopper when I do night time hikes and camping. Gives me piece of mind when I do back country camping. I would recommend this for anyone who wants to take their security and hiking experience to the next level.

The worst! Absolutely worst company and product ever ever ever made. I got TWO units and BOTH did not work out of the box. A google search reveals that DOA is common with this unit and my MULTIPLE EXPERIENCES with Flir is a classic demonstration of why the USA is getting its butt kicked by China, et al.--they don't give a #?%&

Good but developable

I'm a hunter and we own several thermal imaging devices including a PTQ136. I really like that it's so lightweight as well as helmet mountable, but I have several points that could be improved (maybe with a newer version?), and I would definitely buy that: * First and foremost I would like a higher sensor resolution (maybe 640x...?) * Add a backed real-time clock (I operate my PTQ136 from a powerbank and the date and time gets always reset which then gets annoying fast when you have several videos on the device from different days. * Add audio to the videos, which would be a great help for hints or when there was a shot etc. Oh, and please check the alignment of the sensor! At least for my device I need to set my Left Margin to -25 and my Top Margin to 50 to align it correctly, which eats quite a bit of my view! Or is my PTQ136 maybe just broken?

Outstanding Form Factor

As a County Sheriff Search and Rescue (SAR) team member who has to balance weight and packability tradeoff decisions, the PTQ-136's compact form factor make taking this in the field a no brainer (it easily stows into a pocket on my radio harness for rapid deployment). Offering the Breach as an option with the Boson 640x512 would further elevate a great product to an indispensable mission essential tool.

I’ve owned this unit for 2 years and have been able to use it for 2 hours

The most important thing is reliability, this unit has been anything but that and I wish I could just get my money back. I’m on my second unit and it’s having the same issue and it needs to be sent back for powering off. Every time I’ve taken it out into the field it has failed. I’m very frustrated

FLIR BREACH PTQ136

By Dana
Rated 1 out of 5
Date: 2020-10-30

The FLIR Breach is similar in size to the PVS/14. It has excellent image quality but unfortunately, that’s all the goods things about it. Now for the bad... I received the Breach yesterday afternoon and turned it on. It soon started shutting down within minutes of using it. It was random times so it wasn’t a timer setting. It constantly keeps shutting down even exchanging the battery. The battery indicator shows a full charge too. Even though the image quality is great, I can’t tolerate paying the price for a defective pierce of gear. I am returning it in less than 24 hours of owning it. By the way, I’ve spoken to a few other owners and their remedy is to “just deal with it randomly shutting down” or “purchase a battery extender at the cost of $89.95”. NO THANKS!

Somethings changed.

I had a Breach a while ago and loved it, small compact, rugged and does exactly what its designed too do. I unfortunately had to sell this though. I found myself in a position to be able to buy another and got it today. Unfortunately though I am not as impressed as I was originally. A few things have changed and not for the better. I have a couple of the Flir Swing arm #172 and the original Breach fitted perfectly on this as well as my MNVD, the new one is 0.5mm smaller in size which is causing excessive wobble when mounted on a helmet. Which is unacceptable in my opinion. I have also noticed the the nice rugged tethered USB-C port cover has been replaced with a cheap little insert that would be easily lost on the field. I still love it, just a little disappointed for the reasons stated above.

question

Anyone know if the Breach can use a 3.7v cr123?
Asked by: Brendon B.
Yes it will work with RCR 123 Rechargable 3.7 v batteries. I use Fenix RCR 123 and also Orbtronics. You can also go to Mod Armory and get a Breach Battery Extender and run 16650 Rechargeable Batteries in it as well. They provide a much longer run time. https://www.modarmory.com/product/battery-extender-for-flir-breach-ptq136-thermal-monocular/

It is helmet mountable but we do not sell the mount. I would recommend that you contact Flir directly for the correct mount.
