Pulsar Axion XQ38

  • $2,499.97

New for 2020 from Pulsar

The new Pulsar Axion XQ’s 384x288 @ 17 µm thermal imaging sensor with NETD 40mK ensures perfect detail recognition even in the hardest weather conditions when thermal contrast is low. The smallest temperature differences will be clearly visible during the rainfall, fog or cold mornings in the most difficult conditions for thermal imager.

It features a high strength housing made from light-weight magnesium alloy which ensures high structural rigidity and ruggedness. The small weight of the monocular makes it a perfect option for long outdoor trips when a light yet capable unit is necessary.

A powerful 38mm/F1.2 objective lens combined with a 384x288@17µm highly-sensitive thermal imaging sensor provides exceptional detection capabilities. A standard 1.8m tall object can be detected up to 1350m away in complete darkness.

The Pulsar Axion features 16gb of onboard memory to capture detailed images and video and seamlessly integrates with the Stream Vision App to make downloading and sharing easy. 

Pulsar’s proprietary Image Boost Technology is comprised of software algorithms designed to increase imaging clarity and overall image detail. Image Boost results in a sharper, more detailed field of view and enhanced object identification capabilities.

The Axion is IPX7 waterproof-rated for protection from heavy rainfall, snow or other precipitation. The unit is designed to run flawlessly, even after submersion in up to 1 meter of water for up to 30 minutes.

Notable Features

Full-Color, HD AMOLED Display

New HD display delivers crisp, richly contrasted, vividly colored field of view, AMOLED technology ensures flawless, fluid, high-resolution imaging and power saving.

Variable Digital Zoom from 3.5x to 14x

Digital zoom, up to 14x, provides improved focus and better overall object recognition at significant distances. The zoom changes either gradually in 2x step or continuously for a truly optimum, customized field of view for specific situation.

Stadiametric Rangefinder

The stadiametric rangefinder is a dynamic rangefinding scale intended to help determine approximate range to objects with known height 1.7 m (deer), 0.7m (wild boar) and 0.3 m (rabbit).

B-Pack Mini APS5 Battery System

Quick-change high capacity rechargeable Li-Ion battery offers 6 hours of operation time on single charge. Fast and easy battery replacement in combination with instant start-up ensure continuous observation without disruptions. Ordinary power bank connected via USB Type-C socket can be used as an external power source.

Picture-in-Picture Function

Picture-in-picture displays a magnified image at the top-center 10% of the overall field of view for precise zooming on an object of interest.

Observation Modes

Image optimization should be performed depending on the environmental location and conditions. Mountains, cities and forests have different ambient temperatures. In order to achieve the highest possible image quality, certain settings have been optimized and gathered into profiles. As a result, optimized imaging in various conditions is easier. Identification preset is another optimal-imaging option that makes identifying easier, even at longer distances.

Color Palettes

The 8-color palette enhances viewing in varying conditions. While the classic White Hot mode is exceptionally versatile, Hot Black is often favored for detecting wildlife at night. Red Monochrome helps to reduce or prevent bright backlight from exiting the eyepiece. Sepia often improves long-range observation while Red Hot, Rainbow and Ultramarine enhance temperature differences of various object attributes. Violet helps to identify objects faster.

Wi-Fi. Integration with IOS and Android devices

Built in Wi-Fi module provides connectivity of Axion with Android or iOS smartphones or tablets. The smartphone and thermal imager combination offers a set of unique features such as direct image streaming, downloading and sharing recorded files, firmware update capabilities and many others.
