Pulsar Trail XP thermal riflesight

Advanced thermal riflesight with outstanding operational features and a 640x480 pxl sensor


The Pulsar Trail thermal riflesight is available with a choice of F38mm or F50mm objective lens. The Trail XP 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 Trail's advanced operational featuresinclude video recording and wi-fi streaming, interactive stadiametric rangefinder, full image control, wireless remote, and a robust quick-detacheable Weaver mount.

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.
