FLIR launches new laser rangefinder
FLIR EOC announced on 24 April the launch of its MLR 4K laser rangefinder, a size, weight and power optimised, military grade ER:Glass solid state laser rangefinder.
According to the company the MLR 4K is the smallest and lightest 4,000m class 1 laser rangefinder available, and is the newest member of FLIR’s popular MLR-K series of multi-kilometer class laser rangefinders.
The MLR-4K can fire continuously at up to 3 ranges per second. The unit measures only 34x54x89 mm, weighs 118g without cover and consumes less than 2W when ranging. These attributes make it 'the ideal solution for handheld systems, weapon platforms and stabilised airborne and maritime turrets'.

In addition to offering custom design services and volume manufacturing, FLIR OEM is a merchant supplier and offers a range of other laser and imaging products.
