WARNINGS AND CAUTIONS
" WARNING
1. The user must be trained and thoroughly
familiar with the proper operation and
limitations of the thermal imaging system
prior to use. Use in controlled live-burn
exercises is suggested before using the
equipment in actual emergency situations.
Improper use of the equipment in a
hazardous atmosphere could result in
serious personal injury or death.
2. Do not rely on the thermal imaging system
as the sole means of navigation or deviate
from standard fire-fighting navigational
practices during use. Although the system
provides an image in dark and smoky
environments, the user may become
disoriented or lost in such environments if
the system becomes inoperative.
Most electronic devices will cease to operate at
certain high temperature extremes. Tests on
the Evolution 5000 TIC indicate that it will
provide an acceptable image when
subjected to an ambient temperature of
approximately 120°C (248°F) for about ten
minutes. Exposure to conditions exceeding
these will result in deterioration and loss of
image.
3. Thermal energy is not transmitted through glass
or underwater and may be reflected off of
smooth surfaces. Disorientation may occur if
the user is unaware of these properties.
4. This thermal imaging system is not rated as
"Intrinsically Safe." Do not use the system in
environments or atmospheres where static
or sparks may cause an explosion.
5. Before entering a hostile environment, test the
thermal imaging system as specified in the
instructions to ensure that it is functional.
After each use, inspect the system to
determine if servicing is required.
6. Exposure to high temperature environments
for an extended period of time may cause
degradation or loss of thermal image. Avoid
heat saturation or over exposure of the
equipment. If degradation of the thermal
image is observed, immediately remove the
equipment from the high heat environment
and allow it to cool until the thermal image
returns to normal; otherwise, the system may
become inoperative.
with the equipment. Use of unapproved
batteries may render the system inoperative.
8. Do not remove the thermal imaging camera

On-Screen Indicators
A - Low Sensitivity Mode Indicator - An
on-screen sensitivity indicator ("L") informs the
user when the camera is in the low sensitivity
(Firefighting) mode.
• This mode occurs when the thermal imager
senses an environment above 150°C.
• Dynamic Range is extended while in this mode to
provide greater image details of the surroundings.
In high-heat conditions, the TIC will automatically
enter the Low Sensitivity (or Firefighting) mode.
While in Low Sensitivity mode, the TIC’s dynamic
range is extended, thereby allowing the user to
make better distinction of objects and people within
a higher temperature range. When the Evolution
5000 TIC is in Low Sensitivity mode, the letter "L"
appears in the lower left corner of the display.
B - Shutter Indicator - An on-screen indicator
that tells the user when the TIC is shuttering
appears as a green square in the upper left
corner of the display.
While the TIC is in operation, it is periodically
necessary for the TIC to refresh the focal plane in
order to operate properly. This occurs via an
internal shutter mechanism. When the TIC
shutters, the image on the display temporarily
freezes for about one second. Shuttering can
occur more frequently in higher heat conditions.
This is normal for all microbolometer - based TICs.
C - Optional Quick-Temp Indicator - On-screen
operating Quick Temp spotter and vertical bar
gauge spans temperatures from 32°F (0°C) to
300°F (150°C) in High Sensitivity mode and 32°F
(0°C) to 1000°F (500°C) in Low Sensitivity mode
for objects located in the spotter. The digital
temperature feature displays the approximate
numeric value of the temperature of objects
located in the spotter.
E - System Status Indicator - A single LED
shows the operational status of the TIC.
• Green indicates the TIC is ON and fully operational
• Flashing Green indicates the TIC is ON and in
power-saving Standby mode.
F - Battery Status Indicator - Battery capacity is
shown by a row of three LEDs: one green, one
yellow, and one red. Only one of the three battery
status indicators will be illuminated at any one time.
• Green indicates full or nearly full battery capacity
• Yellow indicates marginal battery capacity
• Red indicates battery warning and nominally 15
minutes of battery life remaining
• Flashing Red indicates battery shutdown is
imminent (about one minute of warning time).
Additional Indicators
Optional Heat Seeker Indicator - The optional
Heat Seeker indicator shows any portion of the
screen in red:
• When in high sensitivity mode (low
temperatures) any portion of the scene which is
above 288°F (142°C)
• When in low sensitivity mode (firefighting mode)
any portion of the scene which is above 887°F
(475°C)
The Heat Seeker mode also indicates any portion
of the scene in yellow:
• When in high sensitivity mode (low
temperatures) any portion of the scene which is
above 275°F (135°C)
• When in low sensitivity mode (firefighting mode) any
portion of the scene which is above 842°F (450°C).
System Fault Indicator - All five LEDs will flash if
a system fault is detected. The TIC’s internal
computer runs a self-diagnostic program. If a
problem with the internal component is detected, a
fault will be signaled and the LEDs will flash.
Direct Video Connection
LED Indicators
D - Over Temperature Warning - Warning
activates when the system electronics approach
maximum recommended operating temperature limits.
• Not lit indicates system is within
operational thermal limits
• Flashing Red indicates the TIC has
exceeded recommended operational
thermal limits.
" WARNING
