C16 Cooled CZ

C16 Cooled CZ

Thermal/Color/Laser/Range Finder optional

The Carbide 16 Cooled CZ is a pan/tilt mechanism incorporating an electro-optic camera system consisting of a cooled thermal imager and a color camera. Optional components available for the C16 Cooled CZ are laser pointers and laser range finders of varying strengths, all of which are outlined within. This compact package weighs in at less than 25 lbs. The CZ version incorporates a Cooled MWIR thermal imager and 19mm-275mm continuous zoom lens with motorized focus producing a 2-degree field of view.

The standard color camera comes with 36X optical zoom however an optical doubler can be employed offering extended long range.  HD options are available as well.
