PathFindIR II

Driver Vision Enhancement System

  • Rugged design
  • Simple installation
  • Affordable price
  • Optimized for driving applications

  • PathFindIR II

    PathFindIR II is a powerful thermal night vision camera that lets you see clearly in total darkness, regardless of the vehicle you’re driving or the road you’re on.

    Headlights usually only let you see about 450’ straight ahead, but PathFindIR II sees heat not light, so you can see everything in front of you up to four times farther down the road. Now you can see clearly, night and day, in good weather and bad, without being blinded by the glare of oncoming headlights.

    Unique in the industry, PathFindIR II is an automotive-qualified system that is hermetically sealed, rated to IP-69, with an integrated, automatic window heater. It uses 12 VDC input power, and standard NTSC video is output for compatibility with most monitors or displays.

    Intended as an aftermarket addition, PathFindIR II is based on a 320x240 thermal camera system with a 24° field of view. 


    PathFindIR and PathFindIR II are designed for commercial, over the road, automotive applications. While many other applications are possible, each user should carefully consider additional protection and installation methods that might be required for any given application. Mechanical, environmental and electrical requirements should be evaluated to assure that PathFindIR and PathFindIR II can be utilized with satisfactory results. Particular attention needs to be given to the electrical system that will power the PathFindIR or PathFindIR II as the camera is designed for the automotive 12 VDC power environment and conforms to ISO 7637-2 requirements for transients and disturbances on the typical automotive power system. If the PathFindIR or PathFindIR II is installed in applications other than commercial automobiles, additional power conditioning or protection may be required.
