The Hik Falcon FQ35 thermal monocular is a 35mm lens variant of the FQ series from HikMicro. It features a newly developed <20mk 640x480 sensor to provide outstanding overall scene detail.
The Falcon FQ35 has a new fast F 0.9 germanium lens system that allows more infrared transmission to the sensor
HikMicro has redesigned the overall body style of this product over previous generation OWL units. The Falcon now incorporates a magnesium alloy shell, that is IP-rated, allowing for additional cooling and a rugged body for the most demanding of environments and usage.
The HikMicro Falcon FQ35 battery system utilises an 18650 battery cell that powers the unit up to 7 hours and can be replaced quickly. All Falcon units are supplied with two battery cells and an associated charger device, so you have a backup readily available.
Integrated recording functions now also include dual audio, images and video are captured and stored on the internal memory. The Hik Falcon FQ35 also streams directly to the Hik Sight app, all media and images can be accessed via this and associated firmware updates can be applied in minutes.

Thermal Imaging Applications & Uses
Thermal imaging, also known as infrared thermography or thermal infrared imaging, is a technology that allows us to capture and visualize the heat radiation emitted by objects, living beings, or the environment. It is based on the principle that all objects with a temperature above absolute zero emit infrared radiation. Here are some common uses of thermal imaging:
Industrial and Mechanical Inspections:
- Detecting overheating electrical components to prevent fires.
- Identifying faulty equipment and machinery.
- Monitoring the performance of mechanical systems.
- Locating insulation deficiencies and air leaks.
- Detecting moisture and water damage.
- Identifying areas with poor insulation or structural issues.
Search and Rescue:
- Locating missing persons in the dark or through smoke.
- Detecting the heat signature of survivors in disaster scenarios.
Military and Defense:
- Night vision for military operations.
- Detecting enemy personnel and vehicles.
- Monitoring border security.
- Identifying suspects in low-light conditions.
- Locating hidden contraband or weapons.
- Investigating crime scenes for thermal evidence.
Wildlife Observation and Conservation:
- Tracking and studying wildlife behavior.
- Monitoring endangered species.
- Identifying poachers or illegal activities.
- Locating hotspots and victims in smoke-filled environments.
- Assessing the intensity and spread of a fire.
- Detecting variations in skin temperature, which can be indicative of certain health conditions.
- Monitoring blood flow and tissue perfusion.
- Monitoring crop health and irrigation efficiency.
- Detecting pests and diseases in crops.
- Evaluating livestock health.
- Identifying energy loss in buildings and industrial facilities.
- Assessing the performance of solar panels and other energy systems.
- Studying climate change effects.
- Monitoring volcanic activity.
- Assessing thermal emissions from industrial facilities.
HVAC and Building Management:
- Optimizing heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems.
- Managing energy consumption in large buildings.
Thermal imaging is a versatile technology that provides valuable information by visualizing temperature variations. It has applications in various fields, helping to enhance safety, efficiency, and the understanding of thermal behaviors in different environments.
