Portable thermal imaging cameras for security and law enforcement applications

The BHS-Series are shock-resistant thermal imaging cameras. They produce a crisp image in the darkest of nights. With the BHS-Series security professionals and law enforcement officers can see suspects in total darkness, through smoke, and light foliage.

The BHS-Series are bi-oculars. This means that it is less tiring to use for the eyes than a monocular. By using a bi-ocular the ability to detect faint objects is enhanced. This means that you have more chance to detect small objects against the background. It is also easier to hold bi-oculars steady when looking at an object. An advantage if you are looking at small things which are far away.

320x240 The BHS-X is equipped with an uncooled vanadium oxide detector. This provides excellent long  range viewing with sharp 320 × 240 native resolution in the viewfinder and a 2× digital e-zoom step to 160 × 120 resolution. 
640x480 Powered by FLIR’s 640 × 480 core, the BHS-XR delivers greater range performance with crisp, clear 320 × 240 native resolution in the viewfinder AND while in the 2x digital e-zoom mode, plus an additional 4× digital e-zoom step to 160 × 120 resolution. Full 640 × 480 resolution imagery from the BHS-XR Series is also accessible via the "aux video" jack in the hot shoe.

lenses The BHS-Series can be ordered with different lenses. Longer lenses have a narrower field of view and allow you to see targets farther away. Lenses are interchangeable. The specific lens(es) you require for your application need to be specified at time of order.

covert In operation, the BHS-Series are totally silent units. Eyebrow style light shield eye-pieces allows the operator to remain fully covert, in total darkness.

video output Just press a button and start recording thermal video on a removable SD card.

SDcard Both versions of the BHS-Series allow to store thermal images in JPEG format on a removable SD card. Images can be used as evidence.

battery The battery compartment hides 4 rechargeable AA NiMH batteries. Good for 4 hours continuous operation. The BHS-Series can also run on standard commercial off the shelf non-rechargeable Alkaline or Lithium Ion AA-batteries.
