We see what others don't ! Red Hawk and Fire Finder are both compact hand held thermal scanners that will work just as effectively in full sunlight or in a smoke logged building giving them Wildfire, Structural and Industrial capabilities.
Dyn-Optics designed Red Hawk and Fire Finder specifically for hotspot detection with patented Smart Sight technology which provides a higher contrast ratio (up to 1000x greater) than a thermal imaging cameras (TICS). This means faster, more reliable hot spot detection and unlike TICS, the ability to see through glass.
The Red Hawk 955L comes with a built in laser pointer to enable easy indication of hot spots or fires, other structural applications include pin pointing a heat source or fire in a smoke logged room, identifying the presence of invisible flames from a chemical or alcohol fire in sunlight, locating overheating electrical components, and during salvage and overhaul to make sure everything is really out.
The Fire Finder 955 W (no laser pointer) is unsurpassed as a blackout tool working in full sunlight the Red Hawk scanner can quickly and efficiently locate hotspots or embers (even if no smoke is being given off). Reduces the amount of time and water used in blacking out (typically by up to 30%), cover more ground faster with more certainty, ensure that the fire is really out and that you will not be called back do the job again or tackle a re- ignition.
Both models of are small enough to be carried in your coat pocket and run on 4 easily available AA alkaline batteries with a battery life of up to 100hours Red Hawk stays on the job. No training or calibration is needed and they cost a lot less money than a TIC!
