Spartanat – First TILO – Andres Industries SHOT SHOW 19

TILO+MG

The TILO series, the world’s smallest thermal imaging goggles, has enjoyed great popularity for around a year. With only 100g and 4cm length this device is by far without competition. The next larger device, the FLIR Breach, is twice as long and more than twice as heavy.Since the introduction of the TILO-6 with its 640×512 thermal sensor, Andres is also leading in the field of image resolution. Other devices in this range only have about 320×240 pixels.

But the development doesn’t stand still. Many users complained about the shorter range compared to larger thermal imaging devices, which is explained by the large field of view of the TILO. Since it was developed as thermal imaging goggles and therefore has to provide the user with a particularly good overview, the TILO only has a maximum detection range of 1000m.

The developers at Andres Industries have now faced this challenge and found a solution. They have developed an adapter with which a 3-fold afocal lens can be attached to the TILO within seconds. This connection is extraordinarily robust and so accurate that the TILO with attachment lens can even be used as an attachment to the ELCAN or short dot sights. Andres Industries does not sell suitable adapters to civilians, but these can be obtained from ACT in Luxembourg. By the way, the TILO is mounted upside down in front of the ZF. The screen font can be adapted for this purpose.

The only disadvantage is that the calibration by the flap of the TILO does not work anymore, because it has to be disassembled before. The calibration must now be started by pushing a button, then the device is directed to an even surface and the button is pushed again. Afterwards, one gets an excellent picture quality without any vignetting, as it is known from other devices with an 3x afocal lens. Here is a small video in which the function is explained.
