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.
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.
The Axion 2 thermal monoculars are equipped with a European Lynred sensors with a resolution of 384x288 pixels (pixel size 17 µm) / 640x480 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.
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.
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.
In Axion 2 thermal imagers, the standard smartphone connection frequency range via a 2.4 GHz WiFi 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.
Use the brightness and contrast adjustments to maximise the detail and informative value of the image in specific observation conditions. 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.
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.
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.
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 WiFi.
Built-in WiFi 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.
The Axion 2 features a short turn-on time: the device is fully functional within 5 seconds after pressing the ON button. Quick start-up helps save battery power: when hunting, the Axion 2 doesn't need to be kept ready at all times, simply turn it on when needed.
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.
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.
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.
Interchangeable standard power supplies for Axion, Merger, Digex, Proton, Talion and Thermion devices.
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.
