1 Introduction
The TH-Series handheld thermal camera enables you to see
easily in low-light conditions or even total darkness.
Typical uses for TH-Series cameras include:
•
When you have the TH-Series camera on deck,
at night in dark anchorages you will be able to see your
surroundings, even when it is cloudy and there is no
moonlight or starlight.
•
See clearly in total darkness—unlike other night vision
systems, TH-Series cameras require no light at all.
•
See logs, rocks, land, and other hazards that radar
can miss.

Navigate with confidence at night knowing that you can
