Enhanced image processing algorithms
The Axion 2 XQ 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.
High-quality reinforced magnesium alloy housing
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.
Highly-sensitive European-made Lynred sensor
The Axion 2 XQ35 is equipped with a European Lynred sensor with a resolution of 384x288 pixels (pixel size 17 microns), which qualitatively captures a useful signal under difficult observation conditions, such as rain, fog and high atmospheric humidity at the observation site.
Fast aperture F35/1.0 lens
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 XQ thermal imaging device sensor is distinguished for its clarity and detailing.
Extended battery life. Up to 11 hours on a single charge
A high-capacity APS5 rechargeable battery provides 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.
Improved Wi-Fi connectivity with 2.4 / 5 GHZ waveband support
In Axion 2 XQ 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.
1300 m detection range
A powerful F35/1.0 objective lens combined with a 384x288@17µm highly-sensitive thermal imaging sensor provides exceptional detection capabilities. A standard 1.8m tall object can be detected up to 1300 m away in complete darkness.
Field of view over 10 degrees
The Axion 2 XQ thermal imaging devices are suitable for viewing wide areas, observing in motion or for moving objects – the linear field of view is 18.2 m at 100 m distance or 10.7° in angular values. The "Picture in Picture" function activates an additional window at the top of the display, in which the central area of the observed scene is shown magnified 2 or 4 times. This makes it possible to combine the information content of a wide field of view with detailed observation of the selected object.
Pocket-sized dimensions and light weight
Axion 2 XQ has a space-saving and pocket-sized design and weighing 350 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.
Variable magnification from 2x to 8x
Digital zoom, up to 4x, 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.
Built-in photo and video recorder. Free 16 GB cloud space
The Axion 2 XQ has a built-in video recorder. The internal memory of the Axion 2 XQ 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 XQ 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.
Distant operation and firmware update from smartphone via Stream Vision 2 App
Built-in WiFi connects the Axion 2 XQ 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 XQ 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 XQ doesn't need to be kept ready at all times, simply turn it on when needed.
High-contrast AMOLED Display
A high-contrast VGA-resolution AMOLED display has an improved colour rendering, power saving and quick-response, providing sharp and smooth images observing even under frosty conditions.
A selection of 8 color palettes
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 Fully Waterproof
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.
