With the 3× afocal lens you increase the range of your TILO enormously. The unique feature of this lens is that there is no noticeable loss of dynamic range even with 3× magnification. The image remains high-contrast even under unfavourable thermal conditions. This is only possible with the 12µm VOx sensor of TILO. Ultimately, the afocal lens covers the entire lens surface of the TILO and there is no "light loss" (heat radiation loss). After a calibration, no vignetting (dark outside area of the image) is visible.
Together with the new 3× afocal lens, you receive a bayonet connection that allows you to mount or remove the lens within seconds. For example, targets that have been detected with the TILO in use as thermal image goggles can be clearly identified after attaching the afocal lens.
NOTE: If the afocal lens is mounted, the robustness of the TILO is considerably reduced in case of drops. To counteract this, the adapter on the TILO can also be permanently bonded to the housing. This is offered as a free service. If the authority versions of the TILO are to be used in combination with the afocal lens as an attachment device, this permanent attachment is strongly recommended. (Only the adapter is permanently attached to the TILO. Of course, the lens can still be removed.)

Scope of delivery:
- Afocal lens 3× (germanium)
- 3 spacers of different thickness (aluminium) can be combined for height adjustment.
- 3 pairs of screws of different lengths (stainless steel)
- Base Rail (plastic)
- Tripod adapter with 5 screws to attach the TILO to the Base Rail
Suitable for all current and future TILO models.
NOTE: As these are very large and expensive germanium lenses, we have very few in stock. They are often not produced until after the customer has ordered them. The delivery time is then approx. 4 weeks.
