The ARGUS Mi-TIC EL3 is the world’s smallest high resolution thermal imager for fire fighting applications.
The camera provides a crystal clear image with a superb dynamic range: you can clearly view extremely high temperatures without whiteout, and at the same time still see very low temperature objects, which is ideal for casualty searches.
PERSONAL: Weighing 865 g the ARGUS Mi-TIC EL3 is a small format thermal imager that can be easily and comfortably held in the palm of your hand.
Unlike many thermal imagers, the ARGUS Mi-TIC EL3 design allows it to be worn in multiple ways – in the hand, inside a pocket, clipped outside a pocket, clipped to a lanyard or hung around the neck.
SIMPLE: With a thumb operated green on/off button and superb start up time of under 5 seconds, the ARGUS ARGUS Mi-TIC EL3 is simple to use.
SAFE: The use of Lithium Iron Phosphate technology ensures the ARGUS Mi-TIC EL3 delivers 3 hours of battery life over 1000s of cycles. They are inherently safe due to the use of patented nanophosphate® technology.
