Yukon Advanced Optics Worldwide launches a new series of
thermal imaging scopes Quantum S
Vilnius, Lithuania – October 20, 2013,
Yukon Advanced Optics Worldwide has always been committed to updating its model range in various product groups. This autumn the company launches an upgraded version of its thermal imaging scopes - the Quantum S series– expected to be as successful as its predecessor, the Quantum series.
Genuine design, supreme quality, extensive use of modern technologies and, last but not least, extremely competitive price. This is what highlights the thermal imager by Yukon. The company introduces not just a minor improvement but a number of previously unavailable functions designed to make the Quantum S scopes more friendly and easy to use.
All the Quantum S thermal imaging scopes are equipped with a state-of-the-art uncooled microbolometer detector that produces clear thermal images of 384x288 pixels. To cover most of the markets, there are two frame rates to choose from – 9Hz or 30Hz. As an established standard, the Quantum S imagers are equipped with quality Germanium lens with internal focusing. Depending on the model, the units have various magnification factors from 1.1x to 2.1x and detection range varying from 500 to 950 meters.
Glass-filled plastic body with very durable finish gives a feeling of a very well assembled and solid unit. The rubber grooved grips on the body ensure firm hold of the unit in the hand. The Quantum S is conveniently controlled by just three buttons right underneath your fingertips: on/off, calibration, digital zoom/Color inversion (“hot white/hot black”). The controller wheel, another easy accessible control in unit’s front, features augmented functionality. With its help you adjust not only image brightness/contrast but also enter the menu featuring time setup and output signal selection options. Also, the menu includes such functions as video output disabling, operating mode selection and image calibration mode selection.
The latter two functions are worth being touched upon in more detail. Operating mode selection incorporates three modes, each designed to deliver best possible image in specific viewing conditions. The modes are as follows: “City” (enhanced contrast), “Forest” (low contrast) and “Identification” (improved rendering of hot object details). Selection of calibration modes suggests: silent manual mode (M), automatic (A) and semiautomatic (H). The “A” mode implies calibration without user participation: actuation of the shutter takes place automatically. In the “H” mode the user decides on his own if calibration is required based on the actual image quality. Manual calibration is carried out by pressing the button when the lens cap is closed. The “M” mode is recommended for hunting due to silent operation.
The Quantum S scopes are powered with four regular AA batteries, enough to power them for about 4.5 hours. Energy-saving mode, activated by disabling the video output, adds another hour of self-contained operation. To enjoy even longer operating time, external battery packs EPS3 or EPS5 are suggested for use.
The Quantum S provides for joint use with multiple accessories like video recording device, external power supply, directional microphone etc. Accessories are fixed on a short Weaver rail on the left side of the scope. The ¼ inch tripod sockets located on two sides of the unit allow it to be mounted on a tripod. Also, the hand strap from the package attaches to either of these sockets.
The Quantum S is a very well-balanced thermal imager that has all features a thermal scope must have – outstanding picture, long viewing range, selectable operating and calibration modes, stable operation. All this, combined with a more than reasonable price, make the Quantum S a perfect instrument for a multitude of applications.
