At 500g and magnification of 1x amd a field (FoV) of I2 view of 51° the focus range is 20cm to infinity. The manually adjustable IR FoV is 36°(diagonal) with a MicrobolometeIR sensor with a resolution of 336x256 pixelsbat a spectral band of 7.5 -13.5µm. The Output Standard SVGA is 800x600 @ 60Hz (colour) in a data FoV of 42.5°(diagonal).
