Pulsar Axion XM30F, the pocket-sized thermal monocular

Banking on the established popularity of its most compact thermal imaging monocular, the Axion, Pulsar released the XM30F model: pocket-size, only 5.66x1.57x2.71 in (144x40x69 mm), and weighing under 8.8 oz/250 g, the XM’s magnesium alloy body is rugged, light and IPX7-rated, fully waterproof.

The Axion XM30F features the time tested four button user interface of the previous Axion thermal imaging monoculars. The objective lens is a 30mm F1.2.

Built focusing on the needs of the hunter, hiker and pro user, the Axion XM is an ideal tool for the outdoorsman and the officer.

The Axion’s design follows the previous models structure with minimal differences, and offers ergonomic handling and comfortable grip. 

The device is easy and intuitive in its use, thanks to the updated, symmetrical layout of the controls on the top panel. It is slightly raised and gives better feedback to the touch compared to the previous model.

Sensor resolution is 320x240 pixels/12 um pixel pitch, and the Thermal Imaging engine has been completely redesigned. The new engine mainly focuses on image processing, Wi-Fi connectivity and battery efficiency. 

The objective lens is a F30/1.2. Thanks to a new, high contrast AMOLED microdisplay with 640x400 pixels resolution that works perfectly down to temperatures of -25°C, updated processing, smaller scaling and improved, wide angle eyepiece optics, the image viewed enhances detail, with a warmer white balance of the monochrome image and overall improvement, with a perceived image size through the eyepiece that is very close in size to previous Axion models.
