The Pulsar Quantum HD38A Thermal Imaging Monocular can detect heat signatures beyond what night vision can see, successfully penetrating through fog and smoke in day and nighttime operations. Featuring a thermal core resolution of 384×288 to capture maximum thermal energy efficiently, its impressive 30 hertz frame rate and LCD 640×480 display resolution offers a crisp, consistent image of fast-moving objects. Long-distance viewing is made possible by a 2x digital zoom, which increases the 2x magnification to 4x. The Pulsar Quantum HD38A is the ideal choice for a wide variety of applications including: search and rescue missions, reconnaissance, hunting, and covert law enforcement/military operations. Its high definition, “white hot” and “black hot” target viewing tracks down humans and animals at distances of 1,000 yards. The 3 new operating modes (City, Forest and Identification) deliver enhanced contrast, significantly improving rendering of hot object details. Users can choose from the automatic, manual or semi-automatic calibration modes, which calibrates the image in just 1 to 2 seconds. It includes a standard weaver rail and tripod mount, allowing for attachment of external power supplies, as well as video output to record each session.




    The Quantum HD38A is engineered with germanium glass, allowing for maximum thermal sensory sensitivity. Users have the ability to switch between “white hot” and “black hot,” making targets distinctly visible more than 1000 yards away. At 30 frames per second, the HD38A offers a smooth, consistent image, capturing even the fastest-moving objects.


    The HD38A features 3 new operating modes and calibration modes, allowing users to customize the monocular to their surrounding environment. Equipped with staggered control buttons, the monocular is easily accessible to both right- and left-handed users, and is effortless to locate in pitch black darkness. It features a 10-second start up function to begin viewing quickly.


    Including two tripod sockets, the monocular can be mounted on a tripod mount with a 1/4″ tripod socket. The HD38A also features a standard Weaver rail and tripod mounts, allowing users to attach external power supplies or recording devices.


    The device features advanced LCD display (640×480) and a high resolution microbolometer sensor (384×288). The longer-distance viewing is made possible by the 2x digital zoom, which increases the 2x magnification to 4x for a wider field-of-view.
