This first stage of further development of the popular PM II series includes the possibility of connecting external devices, such as laser rangefinders, anemometers or ballistics computers via a cable interface and to project the data supplied into the marksman’s field of view. The target optics remained optically and mechanically unaffected – two buttons at the eyepiece, to control brightness and the menu, as well as a waterproof connector were merely added.
Schmidt & Bender are now presenting the next generation of the PM II Digital series: The new 5-25×56 PM II Digital BT and 3-27×56 PM II Digital BT. The basic idea to assist marksmen by projecting all shot relevant data into their field of view has been consistently pursued. The optics now includes a projected LED display that communicates via Bluetooth with other devices; for example, any spotter data essential for the shot can simultaneously be displayed directly in the marksman‘s field of view. Power supply is by a conventional 1.5V AA battery positioned directly aside of the ocular head, while two buttons are used to control the display.
In future, existing products will be upgradeable to the new system. The new optics target police and military marksmen as well as at ambitious long-range shooters who appreciate sophisticated technology.
In addition to the black version, the scopes can be ordered in camouflage colours RAL 8000 and PANTONE 7504 M.
