HikMicro Raptor RH50LN 50mm Handheld Thermal Fusion Optical IR LRF Binoculars. The Raptor RH50LN binoculars combine industry leading thermal performance with a high performance day and night vision camera to deliver the ultimate detection capability in an ergonomic and easy to use package. Detection range (Man size object) is a whopping 2,600 m. It also offers a precise built-in laser rangefinder up to 1,000 m measuring distance.
The detail of the thermal image you see on the screen is defined by the quality of the components and their ability to measure small differences in temperature. The RAPTOR is equipped with HikMicro’s all new sub 20 NETD 384 x 288 px sensor, this is the most accurate available on the market today. Another first is the F0.9 aperture 50 mm lens system this offers an unrivalled ability to transmit the thermal signal, ensuring that more of the detail reaches the sensor. These key components combine to deliver highly detailed thermal image and the best performance in adverse weather conditions.
The Raptor also has a high quality day & night optical camera built in. During daylight hours you can call on a detailed full colour image to help identify the heat source you have located. When it gets dark the camera switches to night mode and the inbuilt IR will help you to see up to 400 m in the dark. The inbuilt image stabilisation reduces hand shake and allows you to use the Raptor like a conventional set of binoculars and get a clear image even at high magnification.
The final lens on the front of the Raptor belongs to the Integrated Laser Range Finder. This can measure distances of targets up to 1,000 m away and is accurate to ±1m. The Raptor also has a compass and GPS built in for detailed location information.
The ergonomic chassis is comfortable for use over a long period and allows all of the major controls to fall easily to hand. The focus for the thermal image is located on the bridge of the binoculars, between the eyepieces while each button falls comfortably to a finger and is intuitive to use, even in the dark. The Raptor is powered by 3x 18650 batteries to give a run time of 8 hours and the detachable battery compartment makes it easy to change.
The dual eyepieces deliver information to both eyes at the same time which aids detection and is more comfortable for use over a long period. The Raptor can be adjusted to comfortably fit your eyes with the interpupillary distance being adjusted from 60 mm to 70 mm giving you an excellent view of the HD OLED display. The inbuilt sensor can tell when you take the binoculars away from your face and automatically switches the displays off to eliminate any light spill that may illuminate you in the dark.
