Pana-Pacific describes FLIR’s PathFindIR Driver’s Night Vision System as a compact thermal imager that allows drivers to see up to four times farther in total darkness than they can see with their headlights. PathFindIR is designed to “see” heat, not light, so that drivers can see everything in front of them.

The company says the kit includes:

  • Thermal night vision camera with universal mounting bracket and hardware for securing and aiming the camera;
  • High-resolution 7-inch LCD monitor with wide viewing angle, three PAL/NTSC camera inputs and one front panel-mount A/V input for the camera, earphone output jack, built-in speaker, mirror and normal image switch, button-controlled brightness and full-function remote;
  • 20-foot cable with an adapter that fits most monitor auxiliary-video in-jacks; and
  • Installation instructions.
  • The camera, when mounted in its bracket, is about 3-by-3-by-4 inches. The cable exits the bottom side of the camera/mounting bracket. While the connection between the camera and cable is sealed against moisture, the camera must be mounted outside the cab of the vehicle, as it cannot “see” through glass, according to the company.
