WARNING:
Always make sure your firearm is unloaded before you place the scope on the firearm. If you
stop in the middle of mounting the scope, always verify that the chamber is empty before resuming. Safe handling rules should be followed at all times.
WARNING:
If a scope is mounted too far to the rear, the eyepiece can injure the shooter’s brow. Shooting at an uphill angle also increases this hazard because it shortens the distance between the
brow and the rear of the scope. For this reason, Armasight scopes are engineered to provide
generous eye relief. Therefore, when mounting your scope, we recommend positioning the
riflescope as far forward in the mounts as possible. With hard-recoiling rifles, serious injury or
even death can result if the eyepiece collides with the shooter during the discharge recoil process. Always install the riflescope as close to the front of the weapon as possible to allow the
maximum distance for recoil.
NOTE: Pay special attention to this warning when shooting uphill and/or from a prone position.
These shooting conditions can dramatically increase risk of injury. PLEASE maintain the maximum distance when shooting heavy recoiling and/or magnum firearms. THE USER ASSUMES
ALL RESPONSIBILITY AND LIABILITY FOR HAVING THE RIFLESCOPE PROPERLY MOUNTED TO A
FIREARM AND USING THE RIFLESCOPE CORRECTLY. ALWAYS CHECK THE CONDITION OF YOUR
MOUNTING SYSTEM PRIOR TO USING YOUR FIREARM.
WARNING:
This product contains natural rubber latex, which may cause allergic reactions! The FDA
has reported an increase in the number of deaths that are associated with an apparent sensitivity to natural latex proteins. If you are allergic to latex, it is a good idea to learn which products
contain it and strictly avoid exposure to those products.
CAUTION:
• Do not dismantle the equipment.
• Keep the equipment clean. Protect it from moisture, dramatic temperature changes, and
electrical shocks.
• DO NOT force the equipment controls past their stopping points.
• DO NOT leave the equipment activated during breaks in operation.
• DO NOT store the equipment with the batteries installed.
• Thoroughly clean and dry each item before placing them into the storage case.
CAUTION:
To prevent thermal damage to the equipment, never point it, either on or off, directly at the
sun or any other source of high intensity light that the unprotected human eye cannot tolerate
(such as a welding arc). To prevent inadvertent exposure to these types of sources, never leave
the equipment with the objective lens cap off.
NOTES:
• Zeus PRO must be zeroed each time it is mounted to a new weapon.
• To avoid losing unsaved data, DO NOT remove the batteries or disconnect the external power source while the Zeus PRO is on.
• Inadvertent sun damage is not considered a defect in material or workmanship, and is therefore not covered in the product warranty.

1.1.3 PURPOSE of Equipment
The Zeus PRO family of Thermal Weapon Sights showcases the best and latest advancements developed
by Armasight in the field of uncooled thermal imaging technology for the dismounted soldier, special law
enforcement team member, and professional hunter. The Zeus PRO epitomizes Armasight’s 20/50 design
gold standard. This means the equipment is capable of withstanding 20 meters of immersion for 2 hours,
and engineered for routine use with 0.50 BMG weapon shock and recoil.
The Zeus PRO series is intended for use on a variety of weapons equipped with a Picatinny/Weaver rail.
Displaying the thermal differences in the scene, the high-performance thermal imaging system of the Zeus
PRO provides round-the-clock, all-weather detection and discrimination of heat-generating objects (such
as animals), including those that are hidden. The Zeus PRO series scopes are effective at close and long
ranges irrespective of light and weather conditions, i.e., in total darkness, through smoke, haze, fog, and
light rain.
The Zeus PRO is available in different versions with optical magnifications ranging from 1x to 8x. Zeus PRO
series also provides up to 8x digital zoom for models based on 640x512 cores and up to 4x digital zoom for
models based on 336x256 cores.
Armasight has introduced a unique dual battery option for the Zeus PRO Thermal Weapon Sight consisting
either of four 3.0VDC 123A batteries all oriented in the same direction to prevent confusion in replacement,
or four 1.5VDC AA batteries pre-loaded in a cartridge. The Extended Battery Pack or 6VDC/ 600mA power
source can also be used to power the Zeus PRO.
The Zeus PRO can be controlled by a wireless remote control that fastens to the weapon.
The Zeus PRO series scopes are equipped with a standard NTSC/PAL video input/output function that
makes it possible to connect to an external video display or monitor, or to record thermal images for field
documentation or training purposes. It also allows the transmission of data from one remote display to that
of the Zeus PRO.
The Zeus PRO can be used in conjunction with other Armasight equipment such as the Digital Video Recorder, MCS Miniature Collimating Sight, and Laser Modular Range Finder, which can be mounted onto the
Picatinny/Weaver rail of scope.
Extremely reliable, the Zeus PRO is the most versatile and sophisticated Armasight product for hunters,
SWAT teams, and military personnel.

Figure 2-1. Zeus PRO THERMAL IMAGING Weapon sightS APPEARANCE
The Zeus PRO is a thermosensitive device equipped with an aiming reticle. The Zeus PRO senses differences in heat emitted by objects in its field of view, and converts temperature patterns into viewable
images that represent the scene in contrasting black and white or color patterns, depending on the
user’s selected image palette.
NOTE:
It is important that the Zeus PRO sensor receive sufficient thermal contrast between the target
and background area, or between the different parts of the target. For example, the vast temperature contrast between snow and any heat target (such as an animal) makes it very easy to
distinguish the target.
The main optical-electronic components of the Zeus PRO include: an objective germanium thermal
lens, an eyepiece, a thermal-imaging camera, a display, a control card, and a button control panel. The
reticle is digitally displayed.
The Zeus PRO is equipped with manual eyepiece and objective lens focusing, and digital boresight
adjustment.
The Zeus PRO Thermal Weapon Sight is includes simple and intuitive controls, functions, and features,
such as direct button adjustments, direct combination button functions, and electronic menu selections.
To accommodate individual user needs, the Zeus PRO has a variety of digitally controlled options such
as:
11
• Digital Compass
• Digital Inclinometer
• Digital angle cosine indicator in %
• Display Brightness
• Palette Color Selection
• Digital Zoom
• Reticle ON/OFF Selection
• Reticle Color Selection
• Reticle Type Selection
• User-Controlled Manual Non-Uniformity Correction/ Flat-Field Correction (UCMNUC/ FFC)
• Boresight Adjustments
• Imaging Enhancements
• Custom Settings
All Zeus PRO series scopes are based on FLIR Tau 2.7.2 or later cameras that allow for improvements in
overall image quality in a wide range of dynamic thermal environments. The Zeus PRO has employed
special user-adjustable imaging tools that include:
• Active Contrast Enhancement (ACE) – a digital “Contrast” correction that allows for smart
scene optimization based on dynamic adjustments, where a variety of contrast levels occur depending on relative scene temperature.
• Second Generation Digital Detail Enhancement (DDE) – a “Sharpness” correction that digitally enhances the picture, significantly sharpens edges, and further reduces image noise.
• Smart Scene Optimization (SSO) – a fine-tuning computational correction that significantly
improves overall visual acuity for targets that have thermal signatures similar to the surrounding
background.
• Information-Based Histogram Equalization (IBHEQ) – a “Sky/Sea” enhancement – information-based environment dependent algorithm that automatically adjusts camera gain and excludes pixels determined to not contain critical information. Specifically helpful in scenes with
great expanses of visible sky or water.
• User-Controlled Manual Non-Uniformity Correction/ Flat-Field Correction (UCMNUC/ FFC).
There is a mechanical shutter between the camera sensor and the lens. This shutter is used to perform a non-uniformity correction (NUC), also known as flat-field correction (FFC). During FFC, the
shutter presents a uniform temperature source to each detector element in the array. While imaging the flat-field source, the camera updates the offset correction coefficients, resulting in a more
uniform image after the process is complete. All Helios models allow for user to manually trigger or
interrupt scheduled UCMNUC/ FFC function.
• Silent Shutterless NUC ™ (SSN) – In addition to User-Controlled Manual NUC/ FFC, all Zeus
models employ a digital, supplemental, non-mechanical flat-field correction that extends periods
between mechanical shutter events and further reduces image noise. SSN is an always ON enhancement.
The Zeus PRO includes the ballistic drop reticles, electronic compass, and inclinometer for finer range
estimation and target orientation. Information on the current operating state (digital compass and inclinometer data, battery status, active function, etc.) is continuously displayed, making field operation
simple and convenient.
The Zeus PRO is manufactured for exceptional durability, with a lightweight and robust aluminum
body. A side Picatinny/Weaver rail allows for the installation of an optional Armasight Digital Video
Recorder, extended battery pack, laser range-finder, or other equipment.
A standard NTSC/PAL video input/output connector enables an external video display (monitor/ TV)
or video recorder to be connected to the Zeus PRO. The quick-release mount fits any Picatinny, MILSTD-1913, or Weaver weapon rail. The mount’s lever-cam clamping device ensures quick, easy, and
reliable mounting and removal.
The Zeus PROis powered by four 3.0VDC 123A batteries, or four 1.5VDC AA batteries, both pre-loaded
in a cartridge and facing the same direction.
Figure 2-2 shows the Zeus PRO with 100mm lens. The ITEM NO. column of Table 2-1 indicates the number used to identify items in Figure 2-2.

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
3.1 Installation and Mounting
3.1.1 Battery Installation
CAUTION:
Verify that the equipment is off before installing batteries.
The Zeus PRO is capable of operating on either four (4) CR123A 3.0VDC format lithium batteries OR four
(4) AA 1.5VDC format batteries. Using the four (4) CR123A 3.0VDC batteries, the operator can expect approximately 6½ hours of continuous operation, contingent upon the quality and freshness of the batteries installed. Using the four (4) AA 1.5VDC batteries, the operator can expect approximately 3 hours
of continuous operation, contingent upon the quality and freshness of the batteries installed.
Please note that regardless of installing CR123 or AA format batteries, the battery polarity orientation
is ALWAYS the same for all of the batteries – positive terminal outboard (+ terminal toward the battery
cap).
Installation of CR123A 3.0VDC Batteries:
To install four (4) CR123A batteries, do the following (refer to Figure 3-1):
1. Unscrew the battery cap (A).
2. Insert the batteries (B) directly into the battery case with ALL positive terminals facing upward (or in
the direction of the battery cap)
3. Replace the battery cap.

4. Verify that the clamping device is firmly holding the Zeus PRO. If necessary, adjust the clamping
device’s lever-cam locks as detailed in Part 3.1.3 (Clamping Device Adjustment).
3.1.3 Clamping Device Adjustment
To adjust the mount’s clamping device, do the following:
1. Remove the Zeus PRO from the weapon.
2. With the clamping device unlocked (as shown in Figure 3-5), push the cam (E) towards the arrow,
which will cause the nut (D) to slide out of its hole.
3. To tighten/ loosen the clamping device, push down on the cam (E) and turn the nut (F) CW/ CCW
respectively, in one-two increments (see note below). Much like when the cam (E) is released, backward-moving springs will cause the nut (F) to slide back into its hole.
21
NOTE:
The eight-sided nuts of the mount’s lever-cam locks will only fit into their holes if turned in one
of the discrete positions, using increments equal to 360°/8.
4. Verify that the adjusted lever-cam lock is securely holding the weapon’s mounting rail.
5. Repeat the procedure to adjust the clamping device’s second lever-cam lock.
NOTE:
The quick-release rail grabbers can be removed and repositioned in other discrete locations
to allow the operator to move the Zeus PRO forward or aft for improved ergonomics. Simply
remove the two Allen-head screws from each mount and, after applying removable Loctite or
an equivalent threadlock, fasten them down in the desired position.
3.1.4 Fastening an Advanced Wireless Remote Control to a
Weapon
Using the supplied Velcro tape (A, Figure 3-6), fasten the remote control (B) to your weapon in an easily

shows the boresight screen.
Push the buttons UP/DOWN and RIGHT/LEFT to shift the reticle on the display up and down, or to the
right and left, respectively. Holding down the UP/DOWN and RIGHT/LEFT buttons will cause accelerated movement of the reticle in 4 pixel increments.
Every time one of these buttons is pushed, the reticle shifts a single pixel increment corresponding
to the minimum boresight correction value. The center of impact on the target moves based on the
specified windage/elevation boresight increment in the opposite direction to the direction of the
reticle shift.
NOTE:
Remember that the center of impact on the target shifts in the opposite direction to the
reticle shift. To bring the center of impact to the right/left and up/down, you must shift the
reticle to the left/right and down/up, respectively.
To control the shift of the reticle, look for the running coordinates of the reticle center that is printed in
the lower left hand corner of the display.
27
NOTE:
For display coordinates, the origin is the center of the display. The running coordinate of the
reticle is the number of incremental shifts of the reticle from the display center. The (-) sign
appears before the displayed number when the reticle shifts left or down (and the center of
impact on the target shifts right or up, respectively).
Hold down button combo (LEFT+RIGHT) to reset to zero azimuth and elevation. The reticle will shift to

SMART SCENE – Smart Scene Optimization (SSO) – a fine-tuning computational correction that significantly improves overall visual acuity for targets with thermal signatures similar to the surrounding
background. Higher values provide a more linear automatic gain control, and objects with similar, but
not identical temperatures can be differentiated with greater accuracy. The adjustment range is from 0
to 100 with a default value of 100.

SKY/SEA – Information Based Histogram Equalization (IBHEQ) – a “Sky/Sea” enhancement – information-based, environment-dependent algorithm that automatically adjusts camera gain and excludes
pixels determined to not contain critical information. This is especially helpful in scenes with great
expanses of visible sky or water. Turning the “Sky/Sea” enhancement ON will improve contrast, but at
the possible loss of some scene content.
Sky/See OFF - plane and banner are more
evident
Sky/See ON – More contrast devoted to
people and the boat

3.3 OPERATIng Procedures
3.3.1 Operating
WARNING:
Always make sure your firearm is unloaded before you place the scope on the firearm. If installation is interrupted, verify that the chamber is empty before resuming. Safe handling rules
should be followed at all times.
31
CAUTION:
DO NOT force the equipment controls past their stopping points.
CAUTION:
To prevent thermal damage to the equipment, never point it, either powered or not, directly
at the sun or any other source of high intensity light that the unprotected human eye cannot
tolerate (such as a welding arc). To prevent inadvertent exposure to these sources, never leave
the equipment without the objective lens cap secured.
Operating procedures are as follows:
1. Remove the Zeus PRO from the carrying case.
2. Install the Zeus PRO on the weapon’s Picatinny/Weaver rail.
3. Verify that the Zeus PRO is securely mounted to the weapon.
4. Remove the objective lens cap.
5. Point the equipment at an object.
6. Activate the Zeus PRO by pressing POWER button. After approximately 3 sec, video of the thermal
scene should appear.
7. Adjust the Zeus PRO for your eyesight by turning the eyepiece focus ring CW up to the stop, and then
CCW until the display and symbols (such as the reticle) are as clear as possible. Bring the object into
focus by turning the objective focus ring (CW for far focus, CCW for near focus).
NOTE:
The total diopter adjustment range is covered with 2 turns of the eyepiece focus ring.
The total focus range is covered with 3/4 turn of the objective focus ring.

A. Adjust the brightness of the display for your comfort.
Push the brightness adjustment buttons to increase (1)/ decrease (3) the display brightness by one
level at a time until you reach your desired brightness level.
B. Use the UCMNUC/FFC (User-Controlled Manual Non-Uniformity Correction/Flat-Field Correction) function to improve image quality. As the camera heats up during use, the detector pixels
will drift. The pixels do not drift uniformly. The camera software compensates for the drift up to
an accurate position point, but when the limit is reached the UCMNUC/FFC function is triggered.
32
A uniform mechanical shutter is briefly placed between the lens and the detector and the signal is
processed.
Hold down the two brightness control buttons (1 and 3) simultaneously to manually trigger a UserControlled Manual Non-Uniformity Correction/ Flat-Field Correction.
If necessary, interrupt the automatic UCMNUC/FFC process by pushing the central button (5) on the
control panel during the 5-second countdown, which appears at the bottom of the display.
C. Adjust the necessary adjustment using the MAIN MENU. See Part 3.2.2 (Using the MAIN
MENU).

is turned on.
CAUTION:
DO NOT leave the equipment activated when not in use.
3.3.2 Bore sighting the Zeus PRO
WARNING:
Always make sure your firearm is unloaded before you place the scope on the firearm. If installation is interrupted, verify that the chamber is empty before resuming. Safe handling rules
should be followed at all times.
NOTE:
The Zeus PRO must be zeroed each time it is mounted to a new weapon.
NOTE:
When reticle at (0-0) coordinates there is an incline of 15 arc minutes for the scope’s optical
axis.
Boresight the Zeus PRO as follows:
1. Locate a target at the fire adjustment range (100yd or 100m for example).
2. Turn on the Zeus PRO.
3. Adjust the eyepiece and focus the objective lens to sharpen the image of the target.
4. Adjust the brightness of the display.
5. Select a reticle pattern.
6. Take aim by centering the reticle on the target and fire a series of shots (3-4).
7. Find the point of impact and measure its vertical and horizontal deviations from the center of the
target.
8. Work out the values of boresight correction required to compensate for the measured deviation of
the point of impact from the center of the target. Table 3-3 contains examples of calculating boresight correction values.

0.5×R/100, in — for Zeus PRO 336 4-16x50;
0.25×R/100, in — for Zeus PRO 336 8-32x100;
1.7×R/100, in — for Zeus PRO 640 1-x30;
R/100, in — for Zeus PRO 640 2-16x50;
0.5×R/100, in — for Zeus PRO 640 4-32x100.
3) To calculate boresight increment value in metric units for a fire range R different from 100m, use the
coefficient R/100. So at a range R (in meters) the boresight increment is:
2.5×R/100, cm — for Zeus PRO 336 3-8x30;
1.4×R/100, cm — for Zeus PRO 336 4-16x50;
0.7×R/100, cm — for Zeus PRO 336 8-32x100;
4.6×R/100, cm — for Zeus PRO 640 1-x30;
3×R/100, cm — for Zeus PRO 640 2-16x50;
1.5×R/100, cm — for Zeus PRO 640 4-32x100.
9. Use the BORESIGHT MENU to apply corrections required to bring the point of impact as close as possible to the center of the target. See Part 3.2.2 (Using the MAIN MENU).
A. Use the LEFT and RIGHT buttons to adjust for windage. Moving the reticle in the positive direction (to the right) will move the point of impact to the left. Moving the reticle in the negative
direction (to the left) will move the point of impact to the right.
B. Use the UP and DOWN buttons to adjust for elevation. Moving the reticle in the positive directly
(up) will move the point of impact down. Moving the reticle in the negative direction (down) will
move the point of impact up.
35
10. Fire a series of shots to check the boresight.
11. After completing the boresight adjustment procedure you can use RIFLE PROFILE function of Setting menu to save the boresighted reticle position map in the “Rifle Profile” tab. This can be done for
the same scope equipped to up to 3 different rifles (Profile 1, Profile 2, and Profile 3).
12. Turn off the Zeus PRO and place the cap over the objective lens.
3.3.3 Zeus PRO Shut-Down
