The rugged CIZ features 50 to 200 mm (4X) zoom technology and is continuous across the range.  This lens has been optimized for the mid-wave infrared.

 

The lens has a field of view of  5 degrees to 20 degrees and features optical compensation to perform the zoom lens. This form of compensation is inherently rugged as it removes the need for cam and cam followers and replaces them with a rigidly locked rail system.

 

Manufactured in the U.S. by Computer Optics, Inc.


The rugged CIZ Motorized features the same highly precise continuous 50 to 200 mm (4X) zoom technology as the CIZ Manual, but with motorized zoom capabilities.

Most lenses in the mid-wave feature cooled technology, which offers very high sensitivity.  As a result, anything that has a heat signature can be detected.  This makes MWIR lenses perfect for critical military applications, where they will detect people or IEDs from a safe distance (even if concealed) or determine if vehicles engines are turned on.  Since people emit heat, MWIR is also very useful for search & rescue operations, or for police and firefighting work, to detect heat loss in home inspections, and in many manufacturing applications.

In the LWIR, or long-wave infrared, systems are typically uncooled and therefore have less sensitivity. However, long-wave infrared lenses allow the user to see through dust or smoke, which makes them particularly valuable in certain environments and applications. They are also less expensive than some other infrared lenses. The lower price point allows many units to be purchased, when it is necessary to provide the benefits of infrared vision in day and night to many people or military troops.

In the LWIR, or long-wave infrared, systems are typically uncooled and therefore have less sensitivity. However, long-wave infrared lenses allow the user to see through dust or smoke, which makes them particularly valuable in certain environments and applications. They are also less expensive than some other infrared lenses. The lower price point allows many units to be purchased, when it is necessary to provide the benefits of infrared vision in day and night to many people or military troops.

Most lenses in the mid-wave feature cooled technology, which offers very high sensitivity.  As a result, anything that has a heat signature can be detected.  This makes MWIR lenses perfect for critical military applications, where they will detect people or IEDs from a safe distance (even if concealed) or determine if vehicles engines are turned on.  Since people emit heat, MWIR is also very useful for search & rescue operations, or for police and firefighting work, to detect heat loss in home inspections, and in many manufacturing applications.
