The V320, featuring a 320×240 sensor, and equipped with extended battery life, provides firefighters with mission critical information that enables firefighters to make better decisions in extreme conditions. We've pulled together a list of common questions.

Question
Does the V320 have a standby mode or low-power state?

Answer
No.The V320 does not require a standby mode for any reason – including a fast startup or for extended run time.


Question
Do I need to change camera modes for optimum performance in different operations?

Answer
No. The V320 does not require you to change modes for different fireground operations. The internal core has been configured to perform in multiple environments – the only button you have to press is the power button.


Question
What kind of battery life will the V320 have?

Answer
You can expect up to 8 hours of battery life when fully charged and used in optimal conditions.


Question
Is the V320 approved to NFPA 1801: Standard on Thermal Imagers for the Fire Service?

Answer
No. The V320 is not NFPA 1801 approved. Our X-Series line of thermal imagers includes the X380N which is compliant to NFPA 1801.


Question
What does RFID-equipped mean ?

Answer
The RFID tag inside the V320 will allow the thermal imager to be compatible with future innovations.


Question
I already have an X380. Can I use a X380 and a V320 together?

Answer
Yes. The V320 user interface is setup very similar to the X-Series, giving users the ability to operate both cameras. The ON/OFF power sequence, icons and icon locations are the same; enabling easy deployment with existing thermal imagers from 3M Scott Safety.
