The Vulkan Series thermal imagers have always been the benchmark in its class! We’ve taken it another step with the new Vulkan 3 thermal biocular. Our focus was to build a system that featured a high level of performance at the forefront but also be much lighter weight for extended periods of use. High grade OLED displays and ultra high quality US made germanium optics work together with our custom thermal cores to deliver excellent imaging with rich contrast! Though it is difficult to translate real world performance from the confines of our industrial park, it is easy to see that details and textures are abundant !

We took the new Explorer 320 up to the Top of the World in San Clemente, California on July 4th 2014 to watch the Fireworks display at the San Clemente Pier nearly 1000 feet below and 2.6mi away. We draw a comparison between what is seen with the naked eye and what the thermal imager sees. We were impressed that fireworks displays could be seen through the imager as far as 6 miles north on the water in Dana Point, CA.
