Quantum Lite has a stadiametric rangefinder performed in the shape of rangefinding reticle which enables distance measuring to observed objects with known height (deer - 1,7m; boar – 0,7m; hare – 0,3m) with a sufficient precision.
Depending on model, the Quantum Lite is capable of detecting an average human-size target, dressed in outerwear, against a forest backdrop, at a range up to 800 - 900 m.
Quantum Lite thermal imaging scopes are effective for the use in low temperatures (-25°C) thanks to the frost-resistant AMOLED display employed in the unit (image remains the same as when viewing at positive temperature of the surrounding atmosphere)
Quantum Lite offers a choice of 7 color palettes for captured by objective lens image, monochrome (usual “hot white”, “hot black”) and color highlighting the hottest and coldest areas with different colors.
Due to the high image frequency (50 Hz) it is comfortable to use thermal camera dynamically (during rapid moving of observer or object of observation).
The Quantum Lite offers three calibration modes: silent manual mode (“M”), automatic (“A”) and semiautomatic (“H”). The “A” mode implies calibration without user participation (process initiation (actuation of the shutter) takes place automatically). In the “H” mode the user decides on his own if calibration is required based on the image quality. Button “Cal” is pressed in this mode. Manual calibration (“M”) is carried out by pressing the button when the lens cap is closed. The “M” mode is recommended for hunting due to silent operation.
Actual information about the status of the thermal imaging device, depicted in the form of blue icons and numbers, is located on the data panel in the lower portion of the screen, and does not interfere with the image observed. When switching between various functions (digital zoom, color inversion, brightness/contrast settings), the respective large sized icon appears in the right upper portion of the screen.
The Quantum Lite is powered with four AA batteries. The batteries are stored in a container which is then placed in a battery compartment of the unit.
The Quantum Lite scopes are equipped with an analog video output to enable connection of external recording equipment or transmitting image to the display.
When a Quantum Lite is inclined vertically in either direction at more than 70° for 1; 3 or 5 minutes (depending on user settings) the scope will automatically turn off. To save batteries when video recording is not conducted, the video output option can be disabled. Both options can be set up in scope’s menu.
The Quantum Lite suggests three operating 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 objects' details).
Unit's operating time can be significantly increased thanks to the use of external power supplies (for example, Pulsar EPS3I/EPS5) that can be connected with a special jack. When used in frosty weather, the power supply can be stored under the clothes.
