Verify that the chamber is empty, particularly if you stop the procedure and resume at a later time. Safe handling rules should be followed at all times. WARNING: If a scope is mounted too far to the rear of a weapon, the eyepiece can injure the shooter's brow. Shooting at an uphill angle also increases this risk, because it shortens the distance between the brow and the rear of the scope. When mounting your scope, we recommend positioning it as far forward in the mounts as possible. With hard-recoiling rifles, serious injury or even death can result from eyepiece impact when discharging the firearm. BEFORE SHOOTING THE FIREARM, verify that your installation provides sufficient space between the eyepiece and the scope to account for the recoil generated by your rifle. NOTE: Give special attention to this warning when shooting uphill and/or from a prone position. These shooting conditions can dramatically reduce space allotted for recoil between your eyes and the weapon. PLEASE maintain maximum distance when shooting magnum firearms or firearms with heavy recoil. THE USER ASSUMES ALL RESPONSIBILITY AND LIABILITY FOR HAVING THE Clip-on PROPERLY MOUNTED TO A FIREARM AND USING THE Clip-on PROPERLY. ALWAYS CHECK THE CONDITION OF YOUR MOUNTING SYSTEM PRIOR TO USING YOUR FIREARM. WARNING: This product contains natural rubber latex, which may cause allergic reactions! The FDA has reported an increase in the number of deaths associated with sensitivity to natural latex proteins. If you are allergic to latex, learn which products contain it and strictly avoid exposure to those products. WARNING: Recommends that you use an eyecup on the eyepiece of the day scope, to allow for maximum comfort, space, and to remain undetected. 4 AGM Global Vision CAUTION: · To prevent thermal damage to the equipment, never point it (whether ON or OFF) directly at the sun or any other source of high intensity light that the unprotected human eye cannot tolerate (such as a welding arc). To prevent accidental exposure to these types of sources, never leave the equipment around without the objective lens cap secured. · DO NOT dismantle the equipment. · Keep the equipment clean. Protect it from moisture, dramatic temperature changes, and electrical shocks. · DO NOT force the equipment controls past their stopping points. · DO NOT leave the equipment activated during periods of non-operation. · DO NOT store the equipment without first removing the batteries. · Thoroughly clean and dry all items before placing them into the storage case. · To avoid deformation or damage, remove the light suppressor from the Victrix before placing the equipment in storage. · Scope Mounting Systems are not recommended for installing the Victrix on firearms with dynamic recoil (0.308 Win or stronger). NOTES: · The optical axes of the Victrix and day scope should be aligned. The distance between the axes should not exceed 3 mm. If the difference in the axis heights of the Victrix and day scope above the weapon rail exceeds 3 mm, you will need to replace the day scope mounting rings or monoblock. · To avoid losing unsaved data, DO NOT remove the batteries or disconnect the external power source while the Victrix is on. · Inadvertent sun damage is not considered a defect in material or workmanship, and is therefore not covered in the product warranty. Victrix USER MANUAL 5 1 GENERAL INFORMATION 1.1 SYSTEM DESCRIPTION The Victrix clip-on system consists of two primary parts: a thermal imaging device and a mount. The equipment comes with the mount secured to the body of the device (as shown in Figure 1-1). The figure represents two versions of the device equipped with objective lenses with 38mm and 50mm focal length. VICTRIX T38 VICTRIX T50 FIGURE 1-1. VICTRIX THERMAL IMAGING CLIP-ON SYSTEM The Victrix is a thermal sensitive device. It can sense differences in heat emitted by objects in its field of view, and converts the received temperature pattern into a viewable image that represents the scene in black and white or a color pattern, depending on the selected image palette. NOTE: It is important that the Victrix sensor receive sufficient thermal contrast between the target and background area, or between the different parts of a target. For example, there would be a vast temperature contrast between the snow and any heat target (such as an animal), making it exceptionally easy to distinguish the target. The Victrix is based on 17 um uncooled cameras that allow for improvements in overall image quality in a wide range of dynamic thermal environments. To accommodate individual user needs, the Victrix has a variety of digitally controlled options such as: · Display brightness, contrast, and sharpness · Digital zoom · Palette selection (color scheme) Information on the current operating state (battery status, active profile, palette setting, the reticle running coordinate in the display etc.) is continuously displayed, making field operation of the Victrix simple and convenient. 6 AGM Global Vision Manufactured for exceptional durability, the Victrix has a lightweight and robust aluminum body. The clip-on is equipped with manual objective lens focusing. Two side Picatinny/Weaver rails allow for the installation of an optional HD Video Recorder, WiFi Attachment, Extended Battery Pack, or other equipment. An universal input/output connector enables an external video display (monitor, TV) or video recorder to be connected to the Victrix. The Victrix is powered by two CR123A (2×3V) batteries that gives up to 5 hours of continues work. An external 6VDC/600mA power source can be connected to the Victrix. An external 5V power bank (battery pack) also can be easily connected via an USB connector for a significant increase of operating time. The quick-release mount of the Victrix fits any Picatinny, MIL-STD-1913, or Weaver weapon rail. The mount's lever-cam clamping device ensures quick, easy and reliable mounting and removal.
