A Pulsar Quantum Thermal Imager produces incredible image quality, is compact, easy to use, and offers a host of advanced features not found on other thermal cameras. When evaluated by Government Departments, Police, Coastguard, and Search and Rescue, the Pulsar Quantum thermal imager beats all other brands hands-down for image quality, functionality, and value-for-money.

At the core of a Pulsar Quantum is a state-of-the-art amorphous Silicon (a-Si) thermal sensor, which is the best thermal technology available due to it extremely short time constant. A high speed refresh rate delivers a very sharp image, and is especially good for 'sweeping' distant hillsides, and for use from moving vehicles and helicopters.

Dollar for dollar, we consider the Pulsar Quantum thermal imager as the best available. But don't take our word for it, see and compare for yourself.
