The TVS 12C thermal imaging monocular is well-suited to a variety of tactical, law enforcement, search and rescue, and industrial applications. TVS 12C uses passive infrared sensing technology allowing users to detect extremely small differences in the temperature of objects, people and other heat sources within the field of view.
Unlike traditional night vision devices, TVS 12C can be operated 24 hours a day, in the daytime and at night, even in the total darkness of an enclosed space and can see through smoke, fog and other obscurants. The unit features black hot, white hot, sepia and rainbow image polarity and can be connected to external display devices allowing other parties to view the observed image in real time. The TVS 12C is designed for hand-held and tripod-mounted use.
