The iRay Jerry CE5 is a Clip-On Thermal Imager that features a high 640x512 resolution, 12um sensor with a 50Hz refresh rate. The CE5 easily attaches to existing night vision devices (NVDs) to instantly add thermal detection capabilities by overlaying a thermal image on top of the analog image intensified image, creating multi-spectrum capability and removing the need to switch to a completely separate device. Unlike legacy clip-on thermal devices, the Jerry CE5 provides over 30 degrees of thermal overlay for increased themal field of view. With a standard quick disconnect, the CE5 interfaces to any night vision devices that also accepts PVS-14 optics, such as DTNVS, Katana, RNVG, Sentinel, PVS-7, etc.
A common complaint of clip-on thermal imagers is the additional weight it adds to host systems and the limited battery life. The Jerry CE5 solves both of these problems by eliminating the onboard battery compartment, moving the power source to a larger external battery pack (included), reducing frontal helmet weight and offering over 8 hours of continuous battery life.
The latest version of the CE5 now allows users to calibrate the location/offset of the thermal image so that they can line up the analog night vision and thermal images perfectly. A copy of these instructions will be included with every CE5 from us.
In addition, the CE5 now "remembers" the orientation/settings from the last time the unit was on, even with the power disconnected.

The Jerry CE5 enhances the functionality of currently fielded NVD's by adding a thermal overlay to the traditional image intensified night vision scene without modifying existing hardware. This addition of thermal imaging capability provides to two major benefits: Thermal detection capabilities while using NVD's and increased situational awareness in extreme low light, no light, or foliated conditions where night vision devices are limited. In addition, the Jerry CE5 system contains a powerful internal micro-processor that permits custom configuration of the unit. The variable user configuration enables the best mission centric performance.
Low power consumption, optimal sensor technology and high-performance optics integrate seamlessly to provide state-of-the-art long-wave infrared technology. Since the Jerry CE5 mounts on currently existing NVDs with a simple bracket, the clip-on technology allows increased capabilities without the need to refit helmets for special equipment. The small and lightweight design consumes very little power allowing extended use. This version of the Jerry C family of devices features an outboard, external battery pack that can be mounted on the rear of the user's helmet, providing over 8 hours of continuous use. Additionally, Jerry CE5's waterproof and rugged construction can withstand the harshest environments.
When added to a standard I² system, the CE5 enables the user to detect thermal sources and improve situational awareness. Even in pitch-black, no-light, adverse environmental conditions, recognition range extends dramatically. With the CE5 the user is even able to see darkened openings and detect residual heat - situational awareness at the highest level.
The Jerry CE5 comes with an external battery back that takes 2x 18650 rechargeable batteries, a power cable and a battery pack mount, in a custom hard case.
