Unprecedented Thermal Sensitivity
The Helion 2 XP50 Pro thermal sensor features 640×480 resolution (17 µm) and NETD <25mK to ensure perfect detail recognition even in the hardest weather conditions when thermal contrast is low. The smallest temperature differences will be clearly visible during rainfall, fog, or cold mornings—the most difficult conditions for thermal imaging. The richly contrasted thermal imaging enhances identification of animals, their extremities, and even the smallest details, such as branches, leaves, grass, and terrain.
Long Detection Range
A powerful long-distance F50/1.0 objective lens combined with the high end thermal sensor provides exceptional detection capabilities. A standard 6 foot tall object can be detected up to 2000 yards away in complete darkness.
Image Boost Function
The Helion 2 XP50 Pro employs proprietary Image Boost technology to produce even clearer high contrast images with precise tracing of contours and detailed visualization of the smallest objects in areas with minimal temperature differences. A hunter is able to clearly identify objects, both target and background, as well as accurately evaluate the trophy.
Large Aperture Lens
The characteristics of thermal imaging optics have a decisive influence on a thermal imagers ability to capture even the lowest radiation levels. Ultimate detection efficiency is achieved with the fast lens (F50/1.0) of the Helion 2 XP50 Pro, aka the Helion XP50. In combination with highly sensitive thermal sensor and sophisticated image processing, the objective lens helps deliver the sharpest thermal image possible.
Magnesium Alloy Housing
The lightweight magnesium alloy housing stands out for its high structural strength and resistance to external mechanical and climatic loads. The housing material effectively removes and dissipates the heat generated by the electronics, ensuring the operational stability of the thermal imager and maintains a high quality image during prolonged observation.
Full Color HD AMOLED Display
The new 1024×768 HD AMOLED display has improved color rendering and energy efficiency. Its high contrast and a quick response displays clear and smooth images when observing on-the-move or in cold conditions.
16 GB Photo/Video Recorder
The built-in video recorder is a great asset when it comes to filming or taking photos of once-in-a-lifetime experiences. One press of the REC button captures footage that can be shared easily with colleagues, friends, and family. 16 GB of internal memory stores over eight hours of video or 100,000 photos.
8 Color Palettes
A choice of eight color palettes lets the user observe their field of view more effectively, optimized for specific tasks and adjustable for changing conditions. White Hot, Black Hot, and Red Hot are optimal for object detection, Rainbow and Ultramarine help with recognition and identification. Red Monochrome, Sepia, and Violet are most suitable for long observation in the night.
Wi-Fi Connectivity with Smart Devices
The built-in Wi-Fi module connects the device with either Android or iOS smartphones using the Stream Vision 2 mobile app. This combination opens up a wide range of options: wireless device software updates, real-time image transmission to the mobile device screen, remote control digital functions, and much more. Users registered in the application are provided with cloud storage space for photos and videos taken with the Helion 2 XP50 Pro. (The first version of the Stream Vision is also supported.)
Quick-Change High Capacity Battery
Quick-change rechargeable battery packs provide up to 8 hours of non-stop operation. The Helion 2 XP50 Pro can run all night on a single battery pack. Any ordinary power bank connected via Micro USB can be used as external power supply. The IPS14 Battery Pack, available as a separate item, provides up to 16 hrs. of operation time. A battery cradle for LR6 (AA) batteries is an optional accessory.
Picture-in-Picture (PiP) displays a magnified image at the top-center 10% of the overall field of view for precise zooming on an object of interest.
IPX7 Waterproof Rated
The Helion 2 XP50 Pro is 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.
Wide Range of Operating Temperatures (-25 to +50°C)
The housing, power unit, optics, and electronics of the Helion 2 XP50 Pro are designed to function flawlessly in a wide range of temperatures, from -13° F to 122° F.
The stadiametric rangefinder is a dynamic rangefinding scale intended to help determine approximate range to objects with known height, such as 1.7 m (deer), 0.7 m (wild boar), and 0.3 m (rabbit).
High Refresh Rate
The 50 Hz frame rate helps capture and deliver smooth images during rapid movement of either the observer or the target.
The iOS and Android compatible Stream Vision App ensures the most recent Helion software versions are available.
External Power Supply
The Micro USB jack allows fast and easy charging from external power banks and other sources. The convenience of power-bank charging even enhances the ability to power up the Helion during extremely cold weather while also protecting the source from rapid discharge.
The Helion 2 XP50 Pro is designed with ease-of-operation in mind. User feedback has resulted in the most friendly interface to date, complete with an easy-to-read, icon-driven, alphanumeric status bar at the bottom of the display. Internal menu items and options are also displayed on a contrasting gradient substrate so you can keep an eye on settings without losing sight of your objective.
When it is necessary to temporarily stop observation the user can apply the Display Off function. It provides the necessary level of camouflage (no light from the eyepiece of the device) between observation sessions as well as the fast restart of observation (when display is turned off, all other systems are working; for normal operation it is enough just to power on the display again).
