FLIR HS-324 Series Offers

Using a 320 x 240 thermal imaging core, the FLIR HS-324 provides four times the image clarity and detail of earlier systems. It features a 19mm lens with a 24° x 17° Field of view with an optional 2X optical extender. The Patrol camera package contains everything necessary for 24/7 thermal surveillance while the Command package can record pictures and video onto an internal SD card and includes a tactical carrying case.

The HS-324 provides four times the image clarity and detail of earlier systems, allowing officers to see more of their surroundings than any other night vision technology in the world. FLIR's advanced image-processing algorithms produce, crisp, clear thermal video day and night, in good weather and bad. Best of all, H-Series is the first personal thermal imaging camera affordable enough to give every officer on the job the unsurpassed tactical advantages of full-resolution thermal imaging night vision.

What Is It?

The HS-324 is a general purpose thermal iamger that brings the FLIR advantage off of the battlefield and into the hands of police forces across North America. The 30hz refresh rate keeps the image crisp and smooth even in fast moving situations. With the ability to tripod mount, stream video, or expand the lens or enable image and video capture, the HS-324 is an adaptive tool that can be customized to individual needs.

Who Uses It?

The HS-324 is designed as a law enforcement tool for any low light scenario. Primarily designed for police officers, it has also found a home with tactical shooters and the most discerning hunters who are looking for all the advantages of thermal with real time imagery.

What Is It Designed For?

The HS-324 is built off the successful chassis and lens of the Scout TS series, but adds a 30hz refresh rate that updates the image at a faster speed with no delay or ghosting like that found in the general purpose models.

What Is It Capable Of?

The capabilities of thermal technology are a natural fit for law enforcement. The ability to see in darkness with zero emissions by the user is an undeniable advantage. But beyond that, users are able to see recently used vehicles, trace heat signatures, and screen through dust or smoke.
