The AXION XQ38 thermal imaging scope is the superior choice for hunting, forestry, security, search and rescue, outdoor recreation, and sports. It utilizes a new generation of 17 µm thermal imaging sensor featuring 384×288 resolution and sensitivity of <40 mK NETD. Features include photo and video recording, streaming to smart devices, and a long-life quick-change battery (APS5).
Highly Sensitive Thermal Imaging sensor
The 384×288 (17 µm) thermal imaging sensor with NETD 40mK sensitivity ensures perfect detail recognition even in harsh weather conditions when thermal contrast is low. Even during rain, fog, or cold mornings, the smallest temperature differences will be clearly visible.
Detection Range Over 1300 Meters
The advanced sensor combined with a powerful F38/1.2 objective len provides exceptional detection capabilities. A standard 1.8 m tall object can be detected up to 1350 m away in complete darkness.
Image Boost Technology
Pulsar’s proprietary Image Boost technology utilizes software algorithms to increase imaging clarity and overall image detail. Image Boost results in a sharper, more detailed field of view and enhanced object identification capabilities.
Thanks to revolutionary electronics, the AXION XQ38 can be powered up almost instantly. Quick start-up prolongs battery life and extends overall operation time. More importantly, the thermal scope is ready when seconds count.
IPX7 Waterproof Rated
The AXION XQ38 is waterproof, rated at IPX7. It can withstand 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.
Lightweight and Rugged Magnesium Alloy Housing
The housing is made from light-weight magnesium alloy, ensuring high structural rigidity and physical ruggedness. The AXION LRF XQ38 is a great choice for long outdoor trips when a light, yet capable unit is necessary!
Full-Color, HD AMOLED Display
The new HD AMOLED display with 50 Hz frame rate provides a crisp, richly contrasted, and vividly colored field of view. This display ensures excellent image quality and flawless performance even in freezing temperatures.
8 Display 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.
B-Pack mini APS5 battery system
The quick-change high capacity rechargeable Li-Ion battery offers 7 hours of operation time on single charge. Fast and easy battery replacement in combination with instant start-up ensure continuous observation without disruptions. Quickly charge with the included charging station. An ordinary power bank connected via the USB Type-C socket can also be used to charge or serve as an external power source.
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 a specific situation.
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).
Image optimization can be enhanced depending on the environmental location and conditions. Mountains, cities, and forests have different ambient temperatures, so certain settings have been optimized and gathered into profiles for those environments. Identification, another preset, makes identifying easier, even at longer distances.
Picture in Picture is a handy mode when zooming only a part of image is necessary. Upon activation it displays a second, small image in the top part of the screen. This inset image helps to zoom in on a target while retaining the rest of the field of view.
Video and Still-Photo Recording
The built-in video recorder can record videos in MP4 format and take photos in JPEG. One press of the REC button captures video that can be shared easily with colleagues, friends, and family. 16 GB of internal memory can store 10 hours of recorded video or thousands of photos.
Stream Vision App Supported
Built in Wi-Fi module provides connectivity of the AXION XQ38 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 more.
