This is one of the MOST useful aspects of a thermal handheld
The TA series rangefinder is nicely built into the body, not a huge bump on the side - there isn't any penalties to having a LRF, only benefits.
We recommend that you ONLY buy a Thermal Handheld with an LRF
- Paint the Target with the Laser for a Night Vision scope to see and confirm it - saves trying to describe where the target actually is - THIS IS HUGE
- Know the distances.
We so much follow this that we actually DON'T bring in Thermal Handhelds without the LRF, oh and you would only save about $200 as well
Watch our videos to see it in action
Wondering if a 640 core (from any brand) version is worth the extra money, No and Yes
No if the magnification isn't enough - using the digital zoom (2x) just takes you to pretty much the same level as a 384 optically
Yes if you want the Field and View and the same effective magnification as a 384 in the distance and the optical magnification level is fine for your purposes (remember they are nearly half the optical magnification of a 384)
Runs on a Single 18650 Battery.
The TA32 runs on a 1x 18650 Battery. Run Flat while out in the field, no problem, swap it and go.
You shouldn’t have to rely on an internal Battery that could fail leaving you with a Brick, or reliance on Power Banks to top you up, or those expensive custom batteries. Nope use the Thermal all you want no need to look at the petrol gauge and worry about how long you have left!
An 18650 is the best thing to have.
High Performance Thermal Core
With a NETD of <35mK the TA series produces excellent images with great Contrast; others may have 25 or 40, even 50.
BUT Too often its just a Marketing BS figure – Read this for a further Explanation
Our Thermal Cores are 384 Pixels wide, some competitors are just 320 wide in the same class; more pixels the better!
Why are the Pixels such an important figure – Read this for a further Explanation
The Pixels are now .12u apart, that’s a improvement from the older .17u standard that was common – the smaller distance produces more detail
* Range is maximum on reflective targets, reduces with environmental and light conditions. My big brand LRF Binos are rated to 3200 yards, but the manual states 2000 yards on trees and 1300 yards on animals.
Experience in Night Vision
PARD’s New Zealand (and Australian) Distributor is Owl Optics, who are a Night Vision specialist based in Whangarei.
We (Owl Optics) have been operating in this field for over 13 years and have supplied Professional users, Search and Rescue Personal and various Government Departments both here in New Zealand and Australia with Night Vision, SAR and Communications equipment.
It was only after we tested and verified PARD’s devices that Owl Optics decided to become the distributor as they met our standards.
Local Backup and Support
Backup and support is important for us and a requirement for our other work – It should also be a concern for yourself before investing in Night Vision equipment.
We have pre-tested every device before if is shipped out AND we have our own techs who can repair the units without them being sent back to the Factory with a quick turn around time. Months of waiting time are not acceptable to us in all but extreme cases; you should ask about other brands regarding this and their local support
Talk to a Expert
We are available most days of the week, we support our dealers based around the country and are very happy to talk to you before and after your purchase and to discuss your needs
