Pulsar Helion XP thermal monocular

Advanced thermal monocular with outstanding operational features, 640x480 sensor, and interchageable lenses


The Pulsar Helion thermal monocular is available with a choice of F28mm, F38mm or F50mm objective lens. The Helion XQ is fitted with a Ulis professional 640x480 pixel thermal sensor with the optimum sized 17µ (micron) pixel size, and a 50Hz PAL refresh rate. The Helionl's advanced operational featuresinclude video recording and wi-fi streaming, interactive stadiametric rangefinder, full image control, wireless remote, and multiple colour image options. The colour image options are important when viewing at night in order to reduce eye fatigue, when using for extended periods.

The Pulsar Helion XP has interchangeable lenses, which are available as optional accesories. This greatly increases the versatility of the Helion XP, for different viewing distance and conditions is highly desirable,

640x480 v 384 x 288

The 640x480 pixel sensor produces an image with a larger field-of-view, more detail, and the ability for higher zoom magnification. These sensors are commonly fitted to military thermal optics, when high performance is critical.

Amorphous silicon (a-Si) thermal sensors are the finest available due to their ability to refresh at extremly high speed, and their high thermal sesitivity. These sensors are used for guided missiles, military aircraft, navel, and ground force applications, as well as for scientific research and space exploration.
