      Prayers for a longtime Member   11/05/2017

      The Church mass shooting that happened today, was Peggy Wardens Church. She was one of the people killed today and her grandson was shot in the arm and is in surgery. Lets keep her in our thoughts and prayers. I made a topic in the "Cabin" I will keep everyone updated as I get information.

Crittergetter Micro 7.0 PIR focal distance

3 posts in this topic

Hey everyone. I'm just throwing together a quick build with a Crittergetter Micro 7.0 board and I was wanting to know what focal distance this PIR has. The instructions say it comes with 3/8" standoffs. But is that if it used with a snorkel type of fresnal mounted on the outside?

 

I don't have a snorkel type fresnal to mount on the outside of the case. I usually just glue the HPWA fresnal flat to the inside of the case. That always works for me that way.. In that case, would it still have a 3/8" focal distance, or possibly more to take into account the distance the lens would be away from the PIR if it were using a snorkel on the outside?

If you're using a flat wide angle I think you want to be about 7/8"
