Product Files

Guide IR 510 Thermal Imager. The IR510 is a compact and lightweight thermal imaging monocular with 400x300 sensor at its core. This rugged unit has been drop tested to one metre and has an IP67 rating so it can be immersed in a metre of water for up to 30 minutes without sustaining any damage. The rubber armoured body shell with a textured underside allows for a secure grip whether it’s used in the wet or dry.

With only four buttons (each allocated only one function – power, brightness, mode & zoom), the IR510 is simple to use day or night. A tap of the power button puts the unit in to standby mode and pressing any button ‘wakes’ the device virtually instantaneously. There are five operating modes – Black Hot, White Hot, Red Hot 1, Red Hot 2 and Red Hot 3.

The device is focused using the dioptre dial that is easily adjustable even with a gloved hand. The screen is a LCOS (Liquid Crystal on Silicon) display which offers better contrast and a faster response for up to 8 hours run time and an External Battery Pack is available as an optional accessory to increase this further. The underside of the unit has a ¼” tripod mount and a retained rubber cap that covers a micro-USB port (used for charging the battery and updating firmware), a charging LED and a Video Out port.

The 400x300 microbolometer in combination with the 25mm lens of the IR510 achieves man-size detection up to 500m. The unit has a switchable 2x and 4x digital zoom facility.

A built-in rechargeable battery also

The IR510 also features a built-in short-range white LED torch which can be operated by pressing and holding the brightness button when the thermal imager is off.
