Steiner eOptics DBAL-A3 new
Steiner eOptics' DBAL-A3 Infrared Tackles Next-Gen

Steiner eOptics (formerly Laser Devices) has announced the first eye-safe IR laser pointer, IR illuminator and green laser pointer in a single compact unit.

The DBAL-A3 class 1/3R Civilian, based on the standard issue DBAL-A3 for U.S. warfighters, brings the latest advances in IR and laser technology to the civilian market with its dual beam reliability for extreme accuracy in low- and no-light maneuvers.

In addition, the DBAL-A3 is the first to feature new defocused adjustable IR illumination technology to enable both midrange and close quarter target acquisition.

Like the military issue DBAL-A3, it includes a single laser activation switch, low profile windage and elevation adjusters and mounting holes for a flip-up front sight, sub-miniature red dot sight or a MIL-SPEC-1913 top rail.

The DBAL-A3 also features dual remote cable ports that allow the operator to plug a Forward Mounted Light directly into the laser housing using the dual remote cable switch.

One switch pressure pad activates the light and visible laser simultaneously. A second switch activates the infrared functions, enabling operators to instantly transition from infrared to white light on the fly.

Housed in an Aircraft aluminum 6061-T6 / MIL-SPEC Type III hardcoat anodized case, the DBAL-A3 Civilian is as rugged and reliable as the military issue DBAL-A3 on which it is based.

With the introduction of the three-laser DBAL-A3 is also the two-laser DBAL-I2 that offers a choice of either an IR pointer with a visual pointer or an IR pointer with an IR illuminator.
