The world's leading manufacturer of thermal imaging cameras FLIR Systems is set to revolutionise the UK thermal imaging market further by offering their new Scout PS, only months since the introduction of its first Scout model intended for outdoor enthusiasts.
Hunters, hikers, wildlife watchers, gamekeepers, farmers, and adventurers of all stripes will appreciate the clear thermal imagery, palm-size portability, simple three button operation, and affordability of the Scout PS.
FLIR Systems is best known for military on-board applications, and it is the same technology within the handheld Scout that creates images from heat, not light, for a serious advantage in the field even in total darkness. It produces a crisp picture in the darkest of nights, through mist, fog, smoke, dust and light foliage. Even in sunlight the camera will clearly highlight camouflaged animals or people.
Discover nocturnal animals, find wandering members of your party, locate lost livestock, or spot downed game. And there are dozens of other uses for the Scout including the detection of heat leaks and water damage around the home.
The standard Scout PS-24 will detect a man-size object at 320m (1050'), and a car-size at 895m (2936'). The higher resolution PS-32 extends those detection ranges to 450m (1476') and 1.23km (4035') respectively.
The FLIR Scout PS is unrivalled on price and features.
The Scout PS-Series features a rugged, waterproof, ergonomic design, multiple resolution choices, digital e-zoom, image freeze-in-frame capability, three colour palettes (Black Hot, White Hot and unique Instalert Red), an embedded LED flashlight, and internal re-chargeable long-life Li-Ion batteries that will operate up to five hours. It is incredibly lightweight at just 12oz and compact at less than 7" long.
The FLIR Scout is exclusively available from J J Vickers & Sons Ltd, the official FLIR Scout importer for the UK and Ireland.
