Please make sure you have made the following adjustments:
In the course of the calibration process the image freezes on the screen – this is normal and not a defect.
Default calibration mode is “Automatic” (the software decides when calibration is necessary) but
you can change it to “Manual” mode in the "Main menu" => "Calibration mode" to calibrate the riflescope
when you need to based on actual image quality. Please close the lens cover prior to manual calibration. We recommend using automatic mode all the time.
Please read more about calibration in the user manual for your thermal device.
You are using the manual calibration mode without closing the lens cover.
Please make sure the lens cover is closed during calibration or switch to the automatic calibration mode if you do not want to close the cover.
No, a clicking sound is normal in the automatic and semiautomatic calibration modes.
You may switch to the manual calibration mode to avoid the sound. Remember to close the lens cover to make sure no ghost images appear on the display.
Calibration levels the background temperature of the microbolometer and eliminates image flaws
(such as vertical stripes, ghost images of previous objects etc.). Intervals between calibrations depend
on operating time: the longer a thermal imager operates nonstop, the less frequently calibration is required.
Please note that a certain amount of non-functional pixels (max 0.5% of total quantity) is allowed by the sensor and is not considered a defect. You may try repairing the pixels using the respective menu item of your thermal imager. For details, please refer to the user manual.

Activate the pixel repair option in the device`s menu. You will be redirected to a window with picture in picture (PiP) mode and an auxiliary cross.
Operate with navigation buttons to move the cross into the bad pixel’s coordinates. Dead pixels disappear when the auxiliary crosss is in the correct position.
Press the ON/OFF button and check for the “OK” message on the display.
Axion features an ultra compact yet feature-rich design which implies certain compromises in terms of selected technical specifications.
We recommend that glass wearers fold back the edge of the elastic eye shade to allow a certain increase of the field of view.
Please note that AXION features +/-5 diopter adjustment which allows using the monoculars without eye glasses thus allowing enjoyment of the entire field of view.
Field of view depends on the lens focal length and the sensor size.
Both AXION XM30 and AXION XM30 KEY have equal parameters.
Optical magnification depends on:
AXION XM30 and AXION XM30 KEY feature different display sizes and eyepiece focal lengths.
Battery charge percentage is shown only if the device is connected to a PC (power mode) or power bank.
In normal mode the battery indicator does not show the charge percentage.
AXION is a purely handheld device and cannot be mounted on a rifle.
To switch between color palettes in Axion Key, press and hold down the DOWN button.
Please refer to the user manual for details.
If your firmware version is below 1.0.26, please follow the instructions below
If your firmware is 1.0.26 or higher (for example 2.0.09/2.0.14), no update is required.
If your firmware version is 1.0.26 or higher (for example 2.0.09/2.0.14), update is not required.
AXION KEY does not have an external full battery charge indication when charging AXION KEY without
a charge base (it's not supplied with AXION KEY but is available as an accessory).
If your device is turned on and the wall charger is used, the battery icon in the status bar of your AXION KEY will show charge percentage.
Please keep the device connected for about 1,5-2 hours to fully charge the battery.
