A vehicle-mounted system designed to charge the Li-ion battery contained within the Evolution 5000-Series thermal imaging cameras (TICs) while the TIC is mounted to the vehicle. Your Evolution 5000-Series TIC will now be more easily accessible and ready for use when time is of the essence. Also available is a camera-mounting bracket which allows you to mount the TIC to the bracket but does not provide an electrical charge. The Universal Truck Charger can be ordered as a stand-alone unit or part of a new TIC/Truck Charger kit.

    This is one of the finest Firefighter tools ever invented! Great for finding heat, hot spots, victims, and identifying internal temperature of a structure. Light weight and easy to use! Vastly superior to the other cumbersome and bulky imaging cameras.

    We have this system on two of our engines and they are great. The only problem is if your truck goes down for maintenance there goes your battery charger, unless you purchase a desk top one as well. Overall a great system.

    Great camera. It is Light weight and can be clipped to your airpack strap with a retractable cord. The only thing I wish we got was the memory card and image software to download images from inside our fires.

    This camera has so many different uses, I'm sure I don't even know of them all. It works great for initial size-up of a structure fire by showing you the general area where the fire could be located. It makes finding the fire in zero-visibility conditions much easier. It can find victims trapped in smoky rooms. It can sometimes help trace electrical problems, or find overheated HVAC units just by aiming it at a ceiling. Finding hot spots and residual heat during overhaul is a breeze. It can be used to find a missing person at night, or assist the police with finding a suspect hiding in a wooded area. You can use it around the station to prove who actually farted... The possibilities are endless!

    Our company has one on our engine. it works great. It has helped us find many hidden fires along with a suspect in a MVA who fled the scene. We just used it last night at a chimney fire. without it we would never have known there was fire in the walls.

    We are the only volunteer station with one don't have the truck charger, but hopefully we will get one.These are awesome when used. I use it every chance I get, but a lot of our guys are rookies and don't like to carry it.
