Designed to fit perfectly in one hand or in a standard-size pocket, Axion XM30S by Pulsar ensures comfortable grip and easy carrying and makes it an optimal portable unit for scouting and spotting. Powerful objective lens in combination with a 12 µm professional grade thermal imaging sensor provides exceptional detection capabilities. A standard 1,8 m tall object can be detected at a 1300 m distance in complete darkness. Quick start-up helps to save energy and thus prolongs time of operation. The built-in video recorder is a great asset when it comes to filming or taking photos of once-in-a-lifetime experiences. The Pulsar AXION XM30S is designed for use both at night-time and during the day in difficult weather conditions (fog, smog, rain), as well as where obstacles are present that impede the detection of a target (branches, tall grass, dense shrubs etc.), for night-time hunting, observation, and terrain orientation, and carrying out rescue operations.

The 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. Housing made from light-weight magnesium alloy ensures high structural rigidity and ruggedness. A powerful F38/1.2 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 1350 m away in complete darkness. One press of the REC button captures footage that can be shared easily with colleagues, friends, and family. 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.
