Metrix Hand-Held Rangefinder
METRIX HAND-HELD RANGEFINDER
binoculars with electronic compass
Metrix is a modern high-performance multifunctional electro optical instrument for the soldier of 21st century.
It combines binocular observation, distance measurement and north finding in one compact unit.
Description: Laser rangefinder: Measures distances up to 20 km (depending on model, visibility and target features) Binoculars: Superb optics with 7x magnification.
Metrix utilises binocular vision and reduces eye strain.
Digital compass: Displays magnetic azimuth and tilt angle.
BINOCULARS WITH LASER RANGEFINDER AND ELECTRONIC COMPASS
1.1. MetrixPlus C binoculars with laser rangefinder and electronic compass is an optoelectronic instrument for battlefield surveillance and measurement of targets’ relative coordinates (range, azimuth, elevation). Its Er:Glass laser transmitter enables danger-free field use. Laser transmitter maximum output energy is within the limits of Class 1 IEC specifications (Standard IEC 825-1/2001): Class 1 (Emax = 8 mJ: no laser irradiation hazard).
1.2. Ranging capability: practical ranging capability of MetrixPlus C is 10 – 20 km (at visibility approx. 23 km).
1.3. Extinction ratio: extinction ratio is calculated for an extended target with a reflectivity R=0.85 at a distance of 500 m. Extinction value is equal to or greater than 38 dB.
1.4. By means of the mechanical interface MetrixPlus C can be rapidly attached to the tripod
1.5. MetrixPlus C includes in a single case a binocular sight for aiming and observation, a laser rangefinder, an electronic compass and batteries. As an option, rechargeable Ni-MH battery power pack can be supplied.
1.6. The data are read out on the display inside the right eyepiece. Display consists of two rows of six digits. If multiple targets are simultaneously engaged by the laser beam, the distance to three targets can be measured and sequentially displayed in one ranging.
1.7. Design of the instrument allows operation also with the operator wearing gloves, helmet and protective mask.
1.8. The internal desiccation of the rangefinder and controlling of sealing is secured by a conveniently placed silicagel insert.
1.9. The instrument works safely and if handled properly, any injury of the operator is excluded.
