Charging battery pack

The PROTON FXQ30 thermal imaging attachment comes with an APS 5 rechargeable Lithium-ion battery. APS 5 batteries support USB Power Delivery fast charging technology when using a standard charging set (charger, USB Type-C cable, power adapter). Before first use, make sure the battery is fully charged.

Option 1

  • Install the APS 5 battery (4) in the battery compartment (5) of the device.
  • Connect the USB cable (21) to the USB Type-C connector (9) of the device.
  • Connect the other end of the USB cable (21) to the Power Adapter (22).
  • Plug the Power Adapter (22) into a 100-240 V socket (23).

Option 2

  • Insert the APS 5 battery (4) along the guide into the APS 5 charger (18) slot as far as it will go (see Fig.). The APS charger is supplied with your device and sold separately.
  • Connect the plug of the USB Type-C cable (21) to the USB Type-C connector of the Power Adapter (20).
  • Plug the Power Adapter (22) into a 100-240 V socket (23).
  • Connect the other end of the USB Type-C cable (21) to the USB Type-C connector (20) of the charger.
  • LED indicators (19) will display the battery charge level (see Table).

Note: Two batteries can be charged at the same time, a second slot is provided for it.

Do not use the battery!

* Standby mode is when the batteries are in the charger but the Power Adapter  is not connected. In this mode, the indicators are only on for 10 seconds.

Attention! When using a Power Adapter that does not support USB Power Delivery fast charging technology, the flicker frequency of the LED indicators decreases by a factor of 3 and the charge time increases.

Attention! The charger heats up during fast charging. Excess heat is removed through the radiator and does not affect the device operation.

Installing Battery Pack

  • Put the Lock-cover (3) on the rechargeable APS 5 battery (4).
  • Insert the APS 5 battery (4) along the guide into the battery compartment (5).
  • Lock the battery (4) by turning the Lock-cover (3) clockwise until it stops.
  • Turn the Lock-cover (3) counter-clockwise to remove the battery (4).

Operation

Mounting attachment on optical sight

  • Remove the eyepiece cover (2).
  • Select the Ring Adapter (12) (sold separately) with the insert (11) of the required diameter depending on the outer diameter of the lens of your optical sight (10) (see Table). The designation 42 mm / 50 mm / 56 mm in the name of the adapter means the lens diameter of the optical sight

Selection table for optical sight inserts

Ring Adapter model The internal diameter of the insert needs to match the outer diameter of the objective lens housing of the daylight optical device it is being installed on

  • Screw together the Ring Adapter (12) and the attachment along the threads of the mounting area (17) until it stops. Then untighten a little (no more than one turn) so that the lever (16) is on the right side (see Figure).
  • Evenly tighten the screws (13) until the ball joint grips in the Ring Adapter (12).
  • Apply 2-3 strips of double-sided tape to the outer surface of the insert (11) of your choice.
  • Push the insert (11) of your choice into the Ring Adapter (12) until it stops.
  • Move the lever (16) to the OPEN position.
  • Before installing the Ring Adapter (12) onto the optical sight, it is recommended to degrease the lens body of the optical sight (10).
  • Mount the Ring Adapter (12) with the insert (11) onto the lens of the daylight optical sight (10) as far as it will go.
  • If the Ring Adaptor (12) with the insert (11) selected according to the table cannot be mounted onto the lens (10), follow the steps below:
    – Loosen the locking screw (14) with a 2mm Allen key.
    – Untighten the screw (15) with a hex wrench (S = 4mm) until the Ring
    Adaptor with the insert can be mounted onto the lens (10).
  • Move the lever (16) from its initial OPEN position to the CLOSE position.
  • Loosen the locking screw (14) with a 2mm Allen key, if it hasn’t been done before.
  • ighten the screw (15) using a 4mm Allen key. The clamping force should be 1.5-2 Nm (use a torque screwdriver) to ensure the lever is correctly tightened (16), while the Ring Adapter with the attachment should not move relative to the body of the optical sight (10). If necessary, tighten or loosen the screw (15) to operate the lever (16) in the best way possible.
  • Tighten the locking screw (14) as far as it will go.
  • Turn on the attachment by briefly pressing the ON button (6).
  • Align the display center with the crosshairs of the reticle by tilting the attachment.
  • Align top and bottom display boundaries parallel to the horizontal axis of the optical sight by turning the attachment clockwise or counterclockwise.
  • Having reached the best possible position of the attachment, tighten the two screws (13) until stop. The clamping force should be 6.5-7.5 N·m (use a torque screwdriver to check).

Display Calibration

The attachment is configured so that after fitting onto an optical sight that had been properly zeroed, no adjustment of the aiming point is required. Yet if point of impact change is observed after putting on the attachment, you can fix it with display calibration procedure.

  • To enter display calibration mode, first press and hold the controller (8) button for 10 seconds.
  • The display coordinates X=0; Y=0 will appear.
  • Rotate the controller ring (8) to move the display horizontally (X axis) and vertically (Y axis) so that the point of impact moves to the centre of the riflescope reticle.
  • Press the controller (8) button to toggle between the X and Y coordinates.
  • The image offset range is +/- 20 pixels horizontally (X axis), +/- 20 pixels vertically (Y axis).
  • To exit the menu and save the settings, press and hold the controller (8) button for two seconds.
