Why my Scott Eagle 320 use Raytheon 4500AS core?

(1/2) > >>

Logan:
So I just got an Scott Eagle 320 and tear it down on the first day.
To my surprise the core isn't BAE SIM 500H.(As in Fraser's list: here) It's Raytheon thermal-eye 4500AS instead...
Why? Is this the correct configuration? I'm a bit disappointed because even my Eagle 160 (BAE 500L) has a higher sensitivity.  :palm:
Also, I cannot find spec sheet nor manual for 4500AS core, could anyone help?

RO:
I recently discovered the same as you:

Scott EI 320 | Eagle Imager 320 has the Raytheon 4500AS core

Model:
[attach=1]

Easily disassembled:
[attach=2]
[attach=3]
[attach=4]

I believe confusion is a result of lot's of "eagle"named camera's


* Eagle Imager II (the huge plastic cube with the non moving handle)
[attach=5]

* Eagle X
[attach=6]

* Eagle Attack
[attach=7]

And that's just a few that are easy to find.

Thank you! What's the model in your tear down? The red case and 4 buttons seems not common...

RO:
The red color seems to be a bit uncommon; the model is the Eagle 320, at least that's written on the sticker at the battery compartment.
[attach=3]

But i don't really know why it has 4 buttons, perhaps firefighter camera expert Bill W can tell us more?
the buttons are labeled

* mode
* scroll
* enter
* power
I found the manual for (your) eagle 320 in a eevblog posts from Fraser, i'll attach it to this post.

Fraser:
The red unit may be the Eagle 320 with Tracker capability for finding downed fire fighters. The tracker uses 2.4GHz radio location technology.

No idea why there is a Raytheon 4500AS core in the Eagle 320 and not a BAE SIM500 unit as I wrote my comments on the cores a long time ago. It was not uncommon for a thermal camera manufacturer to use different thermal imaging cores in a camera model over its product life due to parts availability, technology improvement or other issues effecting which core was used in a particular camera.
