Lightweight and compact The Merger LRF XQ35 is as compact as classic daytime binoculars ideal for persistence hunting. Being the lightest in the product line, Merger LRF XQ35 is convenient for game search and drive hunting. The balanced weight distribution of these binoculars means a uniform load in the hunter's hands for comfortable observation without fatigue – even from the least comfortable positions. THERMAL IMAGING Classic binocular design the Merger LRF thermal imaging binoculars are built with the classic design of daytime binoculars. With a small form factor, these thermal imaging binoculars fit comfortably in the hand, but still offer appealing external aesthetics and exemplary ergonomics. The six function buttons are placed in the comfort access zone and the most used digital device functions are activated with a single touch. Highly sensitive European-made thermal sensor < 25 mK NETD / 384x288 pixel @ 17 µm The Merger LRF XQ35 is equipped with the highly sensitive < 25 mK NETD European-made Lynred sensor which qualitatively captures a useful signal under difficult observation conditions, when thermal contrast is low. The smallest temperature differences will be clearly visible during the rain, fog and high atmospheric humidity at the observation site. Proximity sensor for covert use Observation in the dark requires being covert, so that hunted animals are not alerted by your presence. Going to stand-by using Display Off feature is a usual way to prevent backlight from the eyepieces. To simplify this task Merger LRF has a built-in proximity sensor. It acts as a display switch for preventing backlight exposure in the dark. When the unit is taken away from the eyes, proximity sensor switches both displays off and when the unit is brought closer both displays are switched on offering excellent image quality. Rugged magnesium alloy housing the Merger LRF 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 and increases consistency of the device operation during long-term observation. Precise laser ranging up to 1000m Understanding the target distance is an essential factor in making the right decisions. A built-in laser rangefinder with a range of up to 1 kilometre allows you to measure distances in single measurements and continuous scanning modes with an accuracy of ± 1 meters for quick and error-free assessment of the situation. Combined dual battery system 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 11 hours of battery life. The embossment on the body of the replaceable battery for accurate determination of the correct position makes it possible to quickly and confidently replace a flat battery with a new one in complete darkness by touch.
