from mid-June, Guide has announced it has added more features to the already “feature
rich” IR518 range of thermal imaging monoculars. The new IR518E version now includes

  • A
    640 × 480 LCD screen which provides the user with a higher definition,
    crisper image to view.
  • An
    adjustable on/off reticle
  • Selectable
    recording speed to suit the application from 1 fps to 25 fps

The unit is available in 3
model types, the IR518EA which has a 25mm, 160 × 120 resolution detector, the
IR518EB with a 25mm, 384 × 288 resolution detector and the flagship IR518EC
with its powerful 50mm, 384 × 288 detector.

Unlike most the
other products in this category, the IR518E features a 50Hz update rate, a
selectable colour palette, 2x digital zoom, a white hot/black hot polarity
switch, adjustable focus and auto standby for power saving. The innovative “hot
spot tracking” feature identifies and displays the hottest spot in the display
to enable the user to find and then track any object on the water.

Still in the same robust, ergonomically
designed and easy to use enclosure, the IR518E is lightweight, protected by a
rubber armoured sleeve and is rated IP66.

“The new Guide IR518E series
is a natural follow on in the development of the IR518 series,” said Mark
Luffingham at Eurotask, adding, “Starting at less than £2,500 ex VAT, the
prices remain the same as the previous models and so provides excellent value
for money.”

All units have integral
video recording capability and come complete with carry case, hand strap,
shoulder strap and breakout cable for battery recharging and video output.

The IR518E series will be
on display with all Eurotask’s other products at stand B177 at the SeaWork Show
in Southampton, opening on June 25th and all enquiries are welcome.

Prices for the IR518E start
at less than £2,530 ex VAT and are available ex stock through Eurotask and
their dealer network.
