TERRAPIN X by Safran Vectronix

Leveraging the world’s premier laser rangefinding and precision northfinding from Safran Vectronix, Safran Optics 1 is pleased to announce the new, commercially available, TERRAPIN X.

The Class I eye-safe TERRAPIN X offers ranging up to 3280+yd/3000+m. Objects to be ranged are easily viewed through 8x magnification combined with a 28mm front objective lens for maximum light intake and resolution.

Additionally, it features a Built-in Digital Magnetic Compass as well as a unique algorithm to calculate various distances, like the height of a building, or between two objects.

Output is via Bluetooth to a smartphone mobile app or KESTREL® ballistic solvers supporting LiNK protocol or other products.

The housing is made from rubberized and reinforced RYTON® plastics that provide solid protection from water, dust and accidental drops.

While TERRAPIN X is a commercial off the shelf product intended for the consumer market, it’s low cost and availability also make it very attractive for law enforcement and military.

    Is there a thread on the bottom for a camera tripod qDbshoe? It would be nice for stabilizing at those distances

  2. Edwin P says:

    According to the video on their page, yes it is threaded.

    So…’s that warranty?

    Your old warranty burned a lot of people- plenty of excuses -but in the end, poor customer service.

    Are the Terrapin and older Vectronix units that were not being returned to customers after warranty still being held?

    • Noack Philip says:

      Good news in case of service. The Terrapin X will be serviced immediately – not like in the past. The old Terrapin is out of service or very limited due to the fact that it is not in production any more.
