1. General Information

In this manual you can find the instructions for use, maintenance and servicing of the thermal imaging devices FORTUNA GENERAL series. In the further manual these devices are referred to as «device», «scope» or «monocular» depending on the application in the manual context.

Attention!

It is absolutely forbidden to point the device at the high-temperature objects (the sun, welding, fire, etc.)

2. Device Features and Application

2.1. Application

The thermal imaging device FORTUNA GENERAL is developed to aiming or viewing both in the darkness (at night) and in the daytime in normal or severe weather events, such as the mist, light rain, snow, fog and smoke. The device detects passively the thermal radiation of objects and landscapes, is flash resistant and does not need additional source of light. Although the device limits the visibility through glass, water, heavy rain or snow.

The device detects passively the thermal (infrared) radiation of objects and landscapes and does not need additional source of light. Although the device limits the visibility through glass, water, heavy rain or snow.

The device can be used as a weaponmounted scope or a handheld monocular.

The device is designed with the shutterless calibration technology enabling quick start and continuous image without stops and delays. The specially developed control electronics of the device works without complicated menu. Ballistic corrections and 4 memory slots enable saving zeroing profiles for different distances and different types of ammunition.

The device is reliable, compact and userfriendly. All the main functions are easily and ergonomically controlled. Each scope has passed the pre-sale impact, vibration and freezing tests.

High-aperture germanium lens (1) in the enclosure focuses thermal radiation of the object on the sensitive area of the detector – uncooled bolometer core. When not operated the lens is closed with the protective cap.

Attention!
For models 50M3, 50L3, 50M6 and 50L6 the lens is focused by rotating the ring.

Fortuna General Thermal Imaging Instruction Manual

The other models do not require the lens focusing.

The objective lens does not rotate!

DEVICE DESIGN AND CONTROLS

On top of the device enclosure (6) there is the panel (4) with the mode control buttons (fig. 1). The enclosure (6) contains the electronics of the device, which transforms the detector signal into the digital image of the object shown on the colour AMOLED display through the eyepiece with eyeguard (10), fig.1.

Dioptric adjustment of the eyepiece is performed with the ring (9), fig.1.

The electrical circuit of the device is powered with two batteries CR123A placed in the battery case (3), fig. 1. The door of the battery case is locked with the screw.

The device turns on and off with the lever (7), fig. 1. The universal socket (8) covered with the protective cap serves to connect the external power supply and to output video image on the external display or recorder (fig. 1).

The impact-resistant design of the device stands against the recoil of large-calibre weapon. To install the device on the weapon use the mounting interface for the support (5), fig. 1.

7. Operation

7.1. Unpacking

If some of the items listed in cl.3 are missing, please, address the Supplier. Prior to turning on the device, visually inspect the enclosure, optical surfaces and other parts of the device. Make sure there are no fractures, scratches, caverns, cracks and other faults in the view of the scope and its parts. Otherwise address the Supplier or the Manufacturer of the device.

7.2. Installing the Batteries

Prior to inserting the batteries make sure they do not have any cracks, caverns, leaks or bubbles. Never insert defective batteries. Do not use together new and old batteries or batteries of different types (of different manufacturers). The device is powered with two CR123A batteries or rechargeable batteries of RCR123A (16340) type.

Insert the batteries:

1. Open the battery door by loosening the screw counterclockwise;
2. 2. Insert the batteries observing the polarity marked inside the battery case;
3. Close the door and tighten up the screw clockwise

Attention!
Li-Ion battery contains SO2 (sulphur dioxide) under pressure. Do not heat, pierce, disassemble, shortcircuit, recharge or in any other way put pressure on the battery. Turn the device off if the battery case is overheated. Wait until the battery cools prior to reinstall it. Do not store or transport the device with the inserted batteries.

9. Zeroing

The device zeroing is the alignment of the device reticle and the weapon mean point of impact (MPI). Zeroing is performed in a special equipped place using special equipment. The device is zeroed against the targets well detected with the thermal imaging scope.

The zeroing is performed as following:

  • Turn on the device. Adjust the device to achieve the best target image.
  • Set the target at the zeroing distance (depending on the weapon), so that the target is clearly viewed through the device.
  • The weapon with the installed device should be fixated with special equipment. Fire 3-4 shots using the standard sight.
  • Specify the shooting accuracy and the mean point of impact (MPI).
  • Fire a shot using the device.
  • If the reticle center does not match the MPI center, make corrections. Select the Zeroing menu and press shortly button (M).
