The handheld ViewIR ® 60 thermal binocular combines maximum mobility with a good range performance for a broad variety of homeland security applications. It offers a detection range of persons up to 2.1 km and a detection range of at least 4.7 for ground vehicles. The top features of this FLIR (=Forward Looking InfraRed) are:

Infrared sensor

The heart of the ViewIR ® 60 thermal core is a (384 x 288) pixel sensor utilizing an uncooled focal plane array. The low-noise sensor system works with an amorphous silicon detector. The thermal resolution is <0.08 K. Next to the image quality a very long lifetime and low maintenance level are further advantages of this FLIR.

Lens/optical system

ViewIR ® 60 is provided with a high-resolution, fast Germanium lens. The viewfinder eyepieces offer a long eye-relief for convenient, extended observation sessions. The OLED viewfinder display is offering a (852 x 600) pixel resolution and allows perfect viewing under any light conditions.

Control buttons

The ergonomical user interface of ViewIR ® 60 is operated via 2x3 buttons. The straightforward menu structure is very easy to understand and allows efficient operation with a minimum of training efforts. 


A variety of choices and flexibility are additional benefits of the infrared binocular ViewIR ® 60, this is supported by the different interfaces. They allow attaching to analogue video monitors or recorders, digital snapshot and video data can be downloaded via the integrated USB interface, remote control data transmission is possible via serial RS-232C interface. An external power supply can be attached as well.

Internal power supply

For a maximum of independence from external power sources ViewIR ® 60 is using powerful rechargeable Lithium ion batteries that offer up to 3 hours of continuous operation.


The light-weight body is made of an enforced Aluminum alloy, its construction protects the delicate sensor technology and fine mechanics during daily harsh operational conditions of a security authority.

Tripod adapter

The standardized tripod adapter allows attaching ViewIR ® 60 to all kinds of video heads or pan-tilt solutions, both during long-term observations and deployed operation.
