Building on decades of heritage in the mid-wave infrared market, G&H
Keene presents a no-compromise approach to conquering today’s demanding thermal imaging requirements.
Each lens in the series is ruggedized for tactical application with a sealed front lens flange interface and additional features for convenient payload installation.
Each NightcrawlIR lens is ruggedized for tactical application with a sealed front lens flange interface and additional features for convenient payload, enclosure, and dewar installation.
All lenses ship standard with our StingWare™ Controller featuring:
- Metric zoom and focus mechanisms offering positioning precision and repeatability
- Temperature adjusted focal length and object distance
- Active athermalization functionalities
The controller utilizes integrated hardware on the lens cells to minimize system hysteresis to accurately and repeatedly report back exact focal length and object distances. This means never losing steps and no drift over temperature.
- Aperture-specific configurations – no extenders (F/4)
- IP67 at front lens
- Temperature-adjusted metric zoom and focus mechanisms
- Active thermalization functionalities
- Configurable communications interface
- Adaptable for power supplies from 12-24 V
