The RED HAWK™ Thermal Scanner is a light weight, handheld, highly selective thermal scanner designed specifically for finding hot spots. Dyn-Optics time-proven thermal scanners have been helping fire fighters complete there jobs quicker, safer and prevent rekindles for over 35 years.
With patented SmartSight™Technology the Model 955 Red Hawk™ maintains maximum sensitivity even in full sunlight. The Model 955 can detect heat sources as small as a lit cigarette on an asphalt roadway in broad sunlight. Unlike thermal imagers and IR thermometer, the Red Hawk™ is unaffected by sunlight giving it unsurpassed performance in outdoor applications.

The Model 955 Red Hawk™ is easy to operate and designed to give reliable performance time after time. Held like a flashlight and waved around a suspected area, the Red Hawk™ quickly finds hot spots and emits a loud alarm instantly alerting the operator.

The pitch of the alarm increases as the Red Hawk™ is pointed closer to the hot spot allowing the firefighter to quickly locate heat sources without taking his eyes off the area being investigated. The Red Hawk is the only thermal scanner with a
100% built-in self test which ensures device integrity each time the unit is powered to give firefighters the confidence they need.
