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…..how’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.

      Terrapin X:
      Standard Warranty (US):

      Safran Vectronix warrants for a period of 1 year from the date of original purchase that the product shall be free from defects in material and workmanship

      Safran Vectronix warrants for a period of an additional 2 years from the date of original purchase that the product shall be free from defects in material and workmanship
      Lifetime warranty on optics against defects in material and workmanship

      The Terrapin X comes with a completely new warranty and service concept designed to meet the needs of the user community. For more information about the warranty, please visit https://www.terrapin-x.com/warranty/.
