Merger LRF has the following differences from the Accolade 2 LRF Pro:
- lens with better aperture 1.0 (vs 1.2 in Accolade), this makes picture brighter;
- higher resolution display - 1024x768 (vs 640x480 in Accolade);
- dual Wi-Fi band 5 / 2.4 GHz - ensures better stability and transfer speed;
- compatible only with Stream Vision 2 (Accolade 2 is only compatible with Stream Vision 1);
- Dual Li-Ion Power System - longer operating time;
- USB Type С port;
- Magnesium alloy body
- LRF channel is built in the lens which makes the device look more like a conventional binocular and ensures a more comfortable grip.

Please make sure you have made the following adjustments:
During 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 base 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. https://www.pulsar-nv.com/glo/support/manuals/2966/merger-lrf-calibration-mode/s2475/
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.
You may try repairing the pixels using the respective menu item of your thermal imager. For details, please refer to the user manual. https://www.pulsar-nv.com/glo/support/manuals/2966/merger-lrf-defective-pixel-repair/s2483/

Please take note of the following:
Accuracy of measurement and maximum range depend on the reflection ratio of the target surface, the angle at which the emitting beam falls on the target surface and environmental conditions. Reflectivity is also affected by surface texture, colour, size and the shape of the target. A shiny or brightly coloured surface is normally more reflective than a dark surface.
Measuring range to a small sized target is more difficult than to a large target. Accuracy of the measurement can also be affected by light conditions, fog, haze, rain, snow etc. Ranging performance can degrade in bright conditions or when ranging towards the sun.
When measuring range to a small-sized target located more that 400 meters away, it is recommended that you put your elbow against a solid surface. This is due to possible hand tremors and difficulty hitting the target with the beam at a longer distance.
All of our products, including Merger LRF, feature 1 Class Safety (standard IEC60825-1:2014) laser which means it's harmless to the eyes. Nevertheless, please avoid looking directly at the emitting lens of the rangefinder.
The housing of Merger LRF is made of high-quality reinforced magnesium alloy.
The Merger LRF is powered with two rechargeable batteries: one built-in with a capacity of 4 Ah, the other replaceable with a capacity of 3.2 Ah. A single charge guarantees up to 8 hours of battery life.
Please make sure the battery is installed correctly as recommended:
Before installing the battery, make sure that there is an undamaged rubber insulating ring on the battery. The ring is designed to protect your device from moisture getting inside. Damage to the device due to a missing ring is not covered by the warranty.
Install the battery into the battery compartment that a pictogram in the form of a “dot” on the battery on the left. You will hear a click when the battery is placed correctly.
The proximity sensor is working.
The proximity sensor can be turned off in the device settings https://www.pulsar-nv.com/glo/support/manuals/2966/merger-lrf-general-settings/s2478/
When the proximity sensor is off, the display can be turned on/off by pressing the ON/OFF button.
If Merger LRF XP50 will not turn on, press and hold down the ON button for 15 sec, the scope should turn on.
If this does not help, probably the battery is empty. Charge the internal battery or connect a charged external power supply such as power bank. Contact us firstname.lastname@example.org
Please try removing and re-inserting the external battery, turn off and on the binoculars and press the menu button again.
The Merger LRF XP50 is equipped with a 1/4" tripod mount. Please follow the instructions for installing Merger on a tripod:

The User Mode function saves selected brightness and contrast settings in the device's memory providing optimal image quality for the next use of the thermal imager immediately, with no additional adjustments needed.
The function is enabled in the main menu of Pulsar thermal imaging devices and remains active until the user disables it.
While the function is active, the thermal imaging device will save the latest brightness and contrast settings specific to each observation mode.
They are stored in the memory even if you temporarily disable the User Mode. Reactivating it will return the saved brightness and contrast settings.
We are considering it, but no clear timeline yet.
