One cartridge and the Freeze software function are enough to zero in both optical channels at a selected distance. After the ranging shot, the riflescope takes a photo of the target, and the thermal imaging and digital channel reticles are set at the point of impact of the bullet. The Thermion Duo DXP can be zeroed using the base magnification or the zoom, while the click value decreases in proportion to zoom – with maximum magnification the сlick value is less than 0.1 MOA. The aiming point is stable in the full magnification range.
The “Picture-in-Picture” function enables the shooter to display a high-precision zeroing frame. Taking only 10% of the total display area, the frame shows a magnified image of the target and reticle and allows the user to view the image close up in the aiming area and have visual control of the entire field of view at the same time. In the Thermion Duo the images from different channels can be combined on a single display, showing a thermal image in the secondary frame when using digital mode in the main frame, and vice versa. A classic function for Pulsar products, “Picture-in-Picture” is also available, when the image from one channel is simultaneously displayed in the main and additional frame.
Zeroing settings are saved in a shooting profile. The Thermion Duo memory contains up to five shooting profiles for several types of weapons or cartridges. Each profile can hold up to ten zeroing distances.
A reticle is electronically displayed in the same plane as the target. The Thermion Duo memory contains ten reticle configurations and functions (direct shot type, ballistic, scalable and regular), all available in nine colours.
The Thermion Duo offers visual aesthetics on any hunting weapon. From the outside the riflescope resembles a classic daytime sight in a 30mm housing. This form factor provides flexibility for mounting the scope on hunting weapons using proven ring solutions.
A choice of eight colour palettes enables the user to 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 the chances of recognition & identification. Red Monochrome, Sepia and Violet are best for extended observation at night.
Objective lens with an internal focusing mechanism gives a clear and sharp image at any range. Ergonomic focusing wheels are located on the right and left sides, making focusing easy either left- or right-handed.
Magnification in each optical channel varies in the range 2 to 16 times. Magnification changes either gradually in 2x step or continuously to set the ideal ratio of magnification and visible field of view for specific scenarios. A huge advantage is that the magnification factors and fields of view of the digital and thermal imaging channels match up. This allows the hunter not to lose concentration on the observation objects when switching from channel to channel – the hunter will see the same scene, just in a different spectrum.
Just 4 seconds from the moment you press the power button the Thermion Duo is completely ready for work.
Observation with the Thermion Duo does not strain your eyes and enables the hunter to fully concentrate on the hunting process. The wide-angle eyepiece (29.5°) and wide viewing angle of the HD quality AMOLED display provide comfortable image perception and the absence of the keyhole effect with safe removal of the exit pupil of 50mm.
Thermion Duo thermal riflescopes are high impact resistant and can be used with rifled hunting weapons with calibres of 9.3x64, .30-06, .300, .375H&H, etc., as well as with smooth-bore and pneumatic weapons.
The Thermion Duo is powered with two rechargeable batteries: one built-in with a capacity of 4.9 Ah, the other replaceable with a capacity of 2 Ah. A single charge guarantees up to 6 hours of battery life, which covers the time of active use of the scope for a hunt. The embossment on the body of the replaceable battery is designed to determine its position accurately. It enables quick and confident replacement of a flat battery in complete darkness by touch.
With an IPX7 waterproof rating, the Thermion Duo riflescopes work in conditions of high humidity and heavy rain and can withstand half an hour immersion in water to a depth of 1 meter.
Thermion Duo riflescopes are designed to operate in a wide range of temperatures, from -25 to +50 °C. The frost-resistant AMOLED display has a standout quick response time and ensures a sharp image when observed in motion.
