Mi-TIC E L - Large Screen
Firefighter Thermal Imaging Camera

The Mi-TIC E L thermal imager with an oversized display- an affordable interior structural firefighting camera.

The argus® Mi-TIC E L is the most affordable high resolution large screen thermal imager for fire fighting applications. The camera provides a crystal clear image with dynamic range up to 1400ºF (760ºC) and at the same time see very low temperature objects, which is ideal for casualty searches.

The argus® Mi-TIC E L is available with a unique dual use desktop/in-truck charger station which securely retains and charges both the thermal imager and a spare battery.

Applications include

• Ventilation location selection
• Search and Rescue (Fire and Non Fire)
• Seat of fire localization
• Size Up
• Identify residual heat during overhaul operations
