Mi-TIC E L - Large Screen
Firefighter Thermal Imaging Camera

 The Mi-TIC E L is the smallest, lightest, most affordable large screen NFPA 1801:2021 certified thermal imager for firefighters.

The camera provides a crystal clear image with a dynamic range up to 1400°F (760°C) and at the same time can still see very low temperature objects, which is ideal for casualty searches.


Applications include:

• Ventilation location selection
• Search and rescue (fire and non-fire)
• Seat of fire localization
• Overhaul
• Size-up
