For many predator hunters, invasive wildlife control specialists and tactical professionals, thermal targeting got real last August when FLIR released of breakthrough ThermoSight Pro PTS 233 thermal-imaging weapon sight. Powered by FLIR’s newest, compact, uncooled, high-performance 12-micron Boson thermal camera core, the 19mm ThermoSight Pro PTS 233 set a new standard in thermal image quality, while offering a wealth of innovative and intuitive performance features in a compact and lightweight package. Best of all, this next-level performance and functionality came with a hunter- and shooter-friendly MSRP below $2,200.
For 2018, two new FLIR ThermoSight Pro thermal riflescopes are now available: the 50mm ThermoSight Pro PTS 536 and 75mm ThermoSight Pro PTS 736.
Both new FLIR ThermoSight Pro models are powered by FLIR’s high-performance 12-micron pixel pitch FLIR Boson thermal camera core, which delivers smaller, lighter optics with increased image performance and range. Featuring industry-leading on-chip video processing and an uncompressed video signal fed directly to a bright, high-definition 1280 x 960 FLCOS display, the FLIR ThermoSight Pro Series offers improved object detection and classification in the field and clean thermal imagery in any light – from low contrast daylight to total darkness – or through smoke, haze, and light fog.
Both new ThermoSight Pro models offer 60Hz video refresh rates, 320×256 thermal resolution, USB-C connectivity, user-controlled imaging palettes, image enhancement filters, and built-in digital compass and inclinometer. Shot-activated onboard recording allows for the internal storage of up to two-and-a-half hours of video or 1,000 JPEG images. ThermoSight Pro models also feature multiple reticle and thermal palette options and crisp iconology and graphic overlays over virtually all backgrounds.
The new FLIR ThermoSight Pro PTS536 features a 50mm lens, 4x optical magnification, 4x digital zoom and a 4.5°W × 3.5°H FOV. The new FLIR ThermoSight Pro PTS736 features a 75mm lens, 6x optical magnification, 4x digital zoom and a 3°W × 2.5°H FOV.
Superior primary optics for hog hunters, predator hunters and tactical professionals and enthusiasts, the new FLIR ThermoSight Pro PTS536 and PTS736 will be available through established FLIR dealers in the U.S. at MAPs of $3,795 and $4,795, respectively, in early March, 2018.
