1. Description

Clip C Series is a multifunctional thermal imager device equipped with two kinds of eyepiece that can be used either as a monocular or a front attachment as the infrared expansion device of white light. Different from the night vision device based on image enhancement, Clip C Series doesn’t need external light source and isn’t influenced by strong light exposure. It can be used in the night or bad weather conditions such as fog, rain, smog and can detect the objects through obstacles such as branch, tall grass, dense bushes and so on. Clip C Series has a wide range application including night hunting, observation and terrain orientation, search and rescue operations.
