thermal clip-on in extremely short design –
The shortest and lightest thermal imaging clip-on with 3000m range.


Until now the TIMRO-X was the smallest thermal imaging scope for short distances. Now the TigIR™ is currently the lightest and shortest clip-on thermal device with 55 mm optics. No other device with such a short overall length of only 111mm achieves a range (standing man) of 3000m. These small dimensions could only be achieved by developing a specially folded ocular optic. This makes it possible to use the device in front of different scopes (3-6x) etc. without loss of quality. Since the entire housing is made of highly robust aluminium and the objective is athermal, the TigIR™ has outstanding precision even under extreme temperature conditions. The housing surface is hard anodized and coated with Cerakote. The TigIR™ can resist even hard impacts in a rough environment, but is not heavier than 500 g/17,6 oz and therefore lighter than any other comparable device.

The TigIR™ was developed and is produced in Berlin, like all our thermal imaging devices. We would be pleased to advise you by phone or on site.

TigIR-Z™ - perfect for civil users and hunters

TigIR-Z™ - perfect for civil users and hunters

The TigIR-6Z+™ with 640x512 pixels is currently the most powerful thermal imaging device in the civil sector. Since the TigIR-Z™ has an interface to the popular Rusan system, the device can be mounted directly in front of various optics. Due to its low weight and its extremely short length of only 11cm, the effect of leverage on the optics is low compared to other thermal imaging devices, which significantly improves the precision. The TigIR-3Z™ is an affordable entry-level-version, which has a smaller viewing angle but the same high coverage range of 3km.

TigIR-M™ - the military version for all authorities and police customers

TigIR-M™ - the military version for all authorities and police customers

The TigIR-6M™ manufactured in Germany is currently the shortest Clip-on thermal with 55mm optics. The device is ideally suited for use in combination with 3-6x magnifying scopes. The extremely short design of only 111mm permits a mounting on machine guns, where due to the design there is only little space available for an attachment. In combination with certain scopes, such as the ELCAN Specter, the device protrudes only 10cm beyond the optics. The robust aluminum housing offers good protection against drops and ensures consistently high precision even at different environmental temperatures.
