Product Description The Helion 2 XP50 Pro thermal imaging monocular is the next step in thermal detection. Fitted with a 640x480 17µm <25mK NETD thermal sensor and a 50mm (F/1.0) fast lens, this model is capable of detailed imaging even in environments with low temperature differences, and with its 1024x768 HD AMOLED frost-resistant display and a 50Hz frame rate it provides super smooth & clear observation. Has a native magnification of 2.5x with 8.0x digital zoom for a 20.0x total magnification, as well as an 1800m detection range for long distance observation. Features a built-in photo & video recorder with a 16GB internal memory and is Stream Vision capable. Users can make use of several useful on-board features such as stadiametric rangefinder, multiple observation modes, Picture-in-Picture (PiP) mode, etc. Comes with an IPS7 battery pack that can be charged via USB or with the IPS7 charger, granting up to 13 hours of operation time. The Helion 2 XP50 Pro features a full metal, magnesium bodyshell for increased durability, high structural integrity, excellent heat dissipation and is lightweight and weatherproof (IPX7).
High Definition Thermal Sensor 640x480 pixel @ 17 µm
Sharp, richly contrasted thermal imaging for enhanced identification of animals, their extremities and even the smallest details, i.e. branches, leaves, grass and terrain.
Long detection range up to 1800 m
A powerful long-distance F50/1.0 objective lens combined with a 640x480@17µm highly-sensitive thermal imaging sensor provides exceptional detection capabilities. A standard 1.8 m tall object can be detected up to 1800 m away in complete darkness.
Image Detail Boost Function
The Helion 2 Pro thermal imager produces clear, high contrast images with precise tracing of contours and informative visualization of the smallest objects and areas with minimal temperature differences. A hunter is able to clearly identify objects, both target and background, as well as accurately evaluate the trophy.
Image Boost Technology
Helion 2 XP50 Pro. What's new?
Large apertute lens
The characteristics of thermal imaging optics have a decisive influence on a thermal imagers ability to capture even the lowest radiation levels. Ultimate detection efficiency is achieved with the fast lens of the Helion 2 XP50 Pro (F50/1.0) thermal imager in combination with highly sensitive thermal sensor. The Helion 2 XP50 Pro gives users the best quality, most detailed & high-contrast, informative imagery every time, even during rain or fog, when the temperature contrast of the observed scene is minimal.
Ultra-high-strength magnesium alloy housing
The lightweight magnesium alloy housing standsout due to a high structural strength and resistance to external mechanical and climatic loads. The housing material effectively removes and dissipates the heat generated by the electronics, ensuring the operational stability of the thermal imager and maintains a high quality image during prolonged observation.
Full colour HD AMOLED display
The new 1024x768 HD AMOLED display has improved colour rendering, is power saving, offers high contrast imagery and a quick-response, as well as providing clear & smooth images when observing on-the-move or in cold conditions.
2.5х-20x Variable Magnification
Digital zoom, up to 8x, 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 with 16 Gb memory
The Built-in video recorder is a great asset when it comes to filming or taking photos of once-in-a-lifetime experiences. One press of the REC button captures footage that can be shared easily with colleagues, friends and family. 16 Gb of internal memory provide many hours of recorded video and tons of photos.
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.
Wi-Fi. Integration with IOS and Android devices
Built in Wi-Fi module provides connectivity of Helion 2 with Android or iOS smartphones or tablets. The smartphone and thermal imager combination offers a set of unique features such as direct image streaming, downloading and sharing recorded files, firmware update capabilities and many others.
Quick-change high capacity battery (up to 8 hrs. of operation time)
Quick-change rechargeable battery packs provide enough power for up to 8 hours of non-stop operation. On one battery pack the unit can run the whole night without the need to be replaced. Any ordinary power bank connected via Micro USB can be used as external power supply. The IPS14 Battery Pack, available as a separate item, provides up to 16 hrs. of operation time. A battery cradle for LR6 (AA) batteries is an optional accessory.
Picture-in-picture displays a magnified image at the top-center 10% of the overall field of view for precise zooming on an object of interest.
IPX7 Waterproof Rated
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.
Wide Range of Operating Temperatures (-25 to +50°C)
Housing, power unit, optics and electronics of Helion 2 are designed with regard to applications in wide range of temperatures. Helion ensures reliable and effective performance in freezing cold up to -25°C.
The stadiametric rangefinder is a dynamic rangefinding scale intended to help determine approximate range to objects with known height 1.7 m (deer), 0.7m (wild boar) and 0.3 m (rabbit).
High image frequency
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).
For initial setup and additional updates, the iOS and Android compatible Stream Vision App ensures the most recent Helion software versions are available.
External Power Supply
Helion makes charging from external sources, such as power banks, fast and easy with a micro-USB jack. The convenience of power-bank charging even enhances the ability to power up the Helion during extremely cold weather while also protecting the source from rapid discharge.
The Helion is designed with ease-of-operation in mind. User feedback has resulted in the most friendly interface to date, complete with an easy-to-read, icon-driven, alpha-numeric status bar at the bottom of the display. Internal menu items and options are also displayed on a contrasting gradient substrate so you can keep an eye on settings without losing sight of your objective.
When it is necessary to temporarily stop observation the user can apply Display Off function. It provides the necessary level of camouflage (no light from the eyepiece of the device) between observation sessions as well as the fast restart of observation (when display is turned off, all other systems are working; for normal operation it is enough just to power on the display again).
