Pulsar Axion 2 XQ35 Thermal Imaging Monocular.
Pulsar’s pocket-sized thermal monocular family—the Axions—have another member – the Axion 2 XQ35! With a powerful 384×288 micro bolometer that detects heat signatures over 1300 meters away, this is an excellent device for scoping large areas and locating prey. It then transmits these images to a pristine 640×400 AMOLED display, giving the user clear, crisp image of their target.
With 2-8x magnification along with built-in photo and video-recording, Wi-Fi connectivity and a 16 GB memory card, the Axion 2 XQ35 is a technological wonder. The Axion 2 is also supported by the Stream Vision 2 app, enabling shooters to record and preserve all their precious shooting memories.
Weighing a mere 300 g, the Axion 2 XQ35 is made of a high-quality reinforced magnesium alloy that boasts IPX7 protection and operates in temperatures between -25 – +40°С. Utilizing a Pulsar APS5 Li-ion battery, the Axion 2 operates for up to 11 hours.
Accessories: Available / Not included
Interchangeable standard power supplies for Axion XM, Axion XQ, Axion XQ LRF, Digex, Proton XQ, Proton FXQ and Thermion devices.
Intended for charging the APS 2, APS 3 and APS 5 battery packs
The Pulsar C-Clamp is designed for fixing Pulsar units equipped with a 1/4″ tripod mount on various elements (crossbeam, handrail etc.). The pivoting ball head allows the Pulsar unit to be mounted in any convenient position.
The Pulsar Tree Mount is intended for the fixing of Pulsar devices equipped with a 1/4″ tripod mount on such vertical elements as a tree trunk or branch, pillar, column etc. Mounting is effected with the aid of adjustable straps or with screws that are screwed into wooden parts of a structure through the holes in plastic parts of the Tree Mount. The Weaver rail allows additional equipment, such as Pulsar PB8I Power Bank, to be mounted.
Tripod for mounting of optical devices on outside elements of standard PVC windows or any other suitable windows. Tripod has a swivel head with ¼ inch screw with a quick-release plate.
Flat Glass Mount is designed for the fixing of digital and thermal devices equipped with a ¼” tripod mount to various flat surfaces such as a window or automobile glass, paving tile, polished metal, plastic etc.
- Enhanced Image Processing Algorithms
The Axion 2 thermal imaging devices use a new approach to image optimisation depending on the purposes and conditions of observation and provide high-quality rendering of both target objects and background. Three levels of signal amplification in combination with a connected smoothing filter and fine brightness and contrast adjustments give the hunter great opportunities for long-range detection of the animal under different weather and temperature conditions and determining its trophy qualities.
- High-Quality Reinforced Magnesium Alloy Housing
Axion is designed for constant, often hard use. A magnesium alloy housing is light and strong at the same time. The housing reliably protects the internal components of a thermal imaging device from shocks, drops, moisture, heat or cold. At the same time, a metal housing effectively removes the heat from electronics, minimizes image noise and increases consistency of the device operation during long-term observation.
- Highly-Sensitive European-Made Lynred Sensor
The Axion 2 thermal monoculars are equipped with a European Lynred sensors with a resolution of 384×288 pixels (pixel size 17 µm) / 640×488 pixels (pixel size 12 µm), which qualitatively capture a useful signal under difficult observation conditions, such as rain, fog and high atmospheric humidity at the observation site.
- Fast Aperture F35/1.0 Lens
Germanium F35/1.0 lens features high infrared transmission in the LWIR range. Due to the high precision manufacturing of the optical elements of the lens, the image generated by the Axion 2 thermal imaging device sensor is distinguished for its clarity and detailing.
- Extended Battery Life. Up to 11 Hours on a Single Charge
A high-capacity APS5 rechargeable battery provides, depending on model, up to 11 hours of continuous operation of the thermal imaging device on a single charge. The battery is removed from a battery housing and replaced with a new one in seconds. The battery is charged in a special charger or inside the device from a PC, household power system or power bank via USB-C. The same sources are used for external power supply of a thermal imaging device.
- Improved Wi-Fi Connectivity with 2.4 / 5 Ghz Waveband Support
In Axion 2 thermal imagers, the standard smartphone connection frequency range via a 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi channel is complemented with an effective 5 GHz range. The 5 GHz connection offers better bandwidth, a faster data transfer rate, noise immunity and improved connection stability, resulting in more productive and easier operation of the thermal imager with a smartphone.
- Detection Range up to 1750 m
A powerful F35/1.0 objective lens combined with a highly-sensitive thermal imaging sensors provide exceptional detection capabilities. A standard 1.8m tall object can be detected up to 1750 m away in complete darkness.
- Pocket-Sized Dimensions and Light Weight
Axion 2 has a space-saving and pocket-sized design and weighing 300 grams. The device is easy to grip and operate by right-handed and left-handed people due to the symmetrical design and in-line buttons arrangement on the upper panel.
Digital zoom 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 specific situation.
- Built-In Photo and Video Recorder. Free 16 GB Cloud Space
The Axion 2 has a built-in video recorder. The internal memory of the Axion 2 can store hours of video and tens of thousands of photos. One touch of a button is enough to take a photo of an interesting scene or start recording video. The footage is copied to a computer hard drive via a USB-C port. The Axion 2 owner has a free 16 GB disk space for storing photos and videos captured with the device in the Pulsar cloud storage. Simply install the Stream Vision 2 mobile application, log in and connect the device with a smartphone via Wi-Fi.
- A Selection of 8 Colour Palettes
A choice of 8 colour palettes lets the user observe their field of view more effectively, allowing them to optimise the unit for specific tasks as well as react to changing observation conditions. White Hot, Black Hot and Red Hot are optimal for object detection, Rainbow and Ultramarine help increase chances for recognition & identification. Red Monochrome, Sepia and Violet are most suitable for long observation in the night.
- High-Contrast AMOLED Display
A high-contrast AMOLED display has an improved colour rendering, power saving and quick-response, providing sharp and smooth images observing even under frosty conditions.
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.
- Distant Operation and Firmware Update from Smartphone via Stream Vision 2 App
Built-in Wi-Fi connects the Axion 2 to Android and iOS smartphones via the Stream Vision 2 mobile application. This opens up a wide range of options including wireless device software updates, real-time image transmission from the device to the smartphone screen, publication on social media of photo and video content captured by the device or transfer to messengers, remote control of digital device functions and access to the latest news from Pulsar. Moreover, registered users receive 16 GB of cloud storage for photos and videos recorded with the device.
