1 Introduction
FLIR’s Scout PS-Series thermal handheld cameras give
hikers, hunters, and outdoorsmen the ability to see clearly
in total darkness, providing a wealth of information during any
nighttime excursion.
The Scout PS-Series camera enables
the outdoorsman to:
•
See animals and difficult terrain in reduced visibility
or total darkness
•
See through smoke, dust, and light fog
•
See camouflage and foliage in any lighting conditions
•
See more—and see farther—than with low-light night vision
goggles
The Scout PS-Series camera makes images from heat, not light,
a feat impossible for the naked eye or even image intensified (I2)
night vision devices, which means you can see clearly even without
any visible light at all. People, animals, and objects all make their
own heat and their own contrast, and are clearly seen by the
Scout PS-Series camera in even the most adverse conditions.

Scout PS-Series Power Management
Your Scout PS-Series camera is equipped with a power
management system that provides up to five hours of continuous

four seconds to become operational. During the Bootup process,
The FLIR splash screen is shown and then the software version is
displayed briefly. Pressing the Power button will toggle the
camera between On and Off.
The camera shuts down after about five minutes if no buttons are

White Hot/Black Hot/Instalert™ Button
Use this button to toggle between the two video and
the four Instalert color palettes. In the default White
Hot palette, hotter objects appear as white or light
grey. In Black Hot, hotter objects appear as black or
dark grey. In the Instalert™ palettes the hottest
objects in the scene are highlighted in red to simplify detection of
animals, people, and objects. There are four pre-set levels of Instalert
that you can select based on the specific scene being viewed. All of the
Instalert palettes are based on the white hot palette.
While white hot is the most commonly used and visually intuitive
method of viewing thermal imagery; black hot can often enhance
contrast of certain objects or provide better visual perspective in
some conditions. When switching between palettes, the appropriate
icon is displayed for approximately 3 seconds.
