Eclipse® LDX is the first X Factor Thermal Imager released and is equipped with the latest state-of-the-art infrared engine technology and image processing techniques from Bullard, the leader in thermal imaging technology for the fire service. Eclipse LDX incorporates Image Contrast Enhancement (ICE™) technology for the ultimate image performance in fire conditions. ICE technology sharpens the distinction between objects and regions and optimizes the image for greater clarity.
The Eclipse LDX runs at an ultra-fast 60 Hertz image update rate and is equipped with a new LCD display that increases brightness and improves contrast, allowing firefighters to see more clearly in thick smoke and direct sunlight. In addition, the Eclipse LDX is equipped with a new power button for easier powering on and off with a gloved hand. Weighing only two pounds, Eclipse LDX is available with a 240 x 180 or 320 x 240 ultra-high resolution infrared engine.
The Eclipse LDX can be equipped with Bullard’s exclusive Electronic Thermal Throttle® (ETT), which enables firefighters to reveal hidden fire and distinguish hotter objects with the touch of a button. Other optional features include Super Red Hot colorization, highlighting high-heat scenes in brilliant shades of yellow, orange, and red; temperature measurement; and an integral DVR.
The X Factor Series of thermal imagers includes the Eclipse LDX, T3X, T4X, and Eclipse X. Bullard plans to release the T3X and T4X in the first quarter of 2015, followed by the Eclipse X.
