The best image definition
heat sink, located on the device's body, effectively prevents heat
build-up from the sensor and other components while also significantly
reducing temperature and noise sensitivity, especially between
models include variable magnification, up to 8x depending on model, and
feature both 2x step-up and smooth, graduated magnification for a truly
optimum, customized field of view.
High image frequency
At a high refresh rate of 50Hz, the Helion provides comfortable viewing throughout dynamic, rapid motion.
Detection distance up to 1800 m
Depending on the model, Helion thermal imaging scopes detect big-game-size heat signatures up to 1800 meters away
Built-in video recording
still images and video is seamless with the Helionl’s built-in video
recorder. Image and video content is stored internally and can easily be
transferred to PC/laptop via wired connection or Wi-Fi.

highlight of the Helion is the ability to link via Wi-Fi the device
with Android and iOS based mobile units using the free mobile
application Stream Vision. The Stream Vision software connects the
device with Android/iOS mobile unit (smartphone or tablet) which enables
you to receive footage in the real time mode, to distantly operate the
device with your smartphone, as well to stream online the image captured
by the device to Youtube.
Quick-change B-Pack power units
includes a progressive autonomous B-Pack power supply consisting of a
quick-detach, rechargeable IPS5, 5.2A-h battery pack designed to deliver
over 8 hrs. of operation on maximum mode. Higher-powered IPS10 battery
packs, as well as CR123A and AA battery cases, also are available and
provide a perfect off-the-grid power solution.
on estimated heights of observed objects, the stadiametric rangefinding
reticle makes determining precise distances fast, easy, reliable and
waterproof-rated protection ensures the Helion performs perfectly in wet
weather, even during intense rain, snowfall and submersion in 3 ft. of
water for up to 30 min. (IEC 60529).
Wide range of operating temperatures
a frost-resistant AMOLED display, the Helion thermal imaging scope is
designed to deliver flawless performance at an extreme temperature range
of -25° ... +50°?.
Fully-functional wireless control (optional)
ergonomic, wireless remote control, with encoder wheel, puts the full
range of the Helion’s capabilities at your fingertips for comfortable,
convenient, hands-off operation.

Great Unit!!!!September 25, 2017
Xp38 has gone above the expectations with the features the monocular
has. Pound for pound it is hard to beat. The on board recorder and
battery makes the days of Cr123 a thing of the past. One of my favorite
features that not many talk about is the Display-off mode. Long nights
of hunting I leave my thermal on all night, without having to re-power
up every time I think I see something. Saving battery and also not
having the screen light glaring at me while driving is a plus. The 640
resolution makes it real easy on the eyes. Being Pulsar's first 640
units, these have exceeded my expectations. This unit is a must have.
