It is composed by 14 models designed with different technical solutions to meet the specific applications. The binocular and trinocular heads provided with zoom optics represent the heart of the SZR series. These are backed by numerous types of bases and stands suitable for any type of use. A wide range of accessories considerably increases the potential of these instruments.
Bino or trinocular, 360º rotating and 45º inclinated.
