The Thermion 2 XP50 Thermal Imaging Riflescope features a new 640×480 17µm <25mK thermal sensor manufactured by ULIS (for Pulsar) and provides a better image in conditions where there is a low-temperature difference such as during rainfall, fog, snow or cold mornings. This unit also has excellent optical capabilities with its fast f1.0, 2.0x germanium lens for high powered optical performance, resulting in a maximum 16.0x magnification (8x digital zoom) and 1800m detection range for distance shooting. Mounting Thermion units has been made easy (and familiar) with their design being compatible with standard 30mm scope rings, requiring no specialised tools or equipment. With a magnesium alloy bodyshell, recoil rated up to .375 H&H, 12-Gauge and 9.3x64 (6000 joules) and a protection rating of IPX7, the Thermion Thermal Imaging Riflescope Series are incredibly robust and can perform in temperatures of -25°C to +50°C. The Thermion has incredibly intuitive controls, with substantially sized lens focus and dioptre adjustment rings for better grip and identification, as well as centralised operational buttons that control recording, power (instant on/off) and zoom. Users can make fast adjustments to the Thermions settings through the conveniently located controller dial. The Thermion has a variety of customisation settings, such as a wide array of adjustable reticles, 8 colour modes and zeroing profile management that stores up to 5 zeroing profiles (with 10 distance coordinates) so the shooter can make quick rifle change-outs and on-the-fly adjustments. Picture-in-Picture (PiP) mode displays a magnified image at the top-centre of the display screen, taking up only 10% of the overall field of view. This zoomed-in additional display offers the shooter the ability to hone-in on a target while still maintaining the greater scene, maximising situational awareness. Using on-board WiFi and the Stream Vision App, the Thermion can connect to a smartphone or tablet for use as a secondary screen. Other features include transferring photos & videos, adjusting device settings, motion detection, ballistic calculations and live streaming to online platforms. All in-device recording is saved to the Thermions 16GB internal memory. The Thermion Series uses a dual-power system, consisting of an internal, built-in battery and an external, quick-change (APS2) power source. Users can run Thermions on both battery packs for a combined run-time or independently. The external APS2 battery pack (included) can be swapped out for an APS3 battery pack (sold separately), which will provide an even longer run time. The Thermion comes supplied with a spare extended turret cap which can be quickly exchanged for when using the larger APS3 battery. Thermion units will always run-off the external battery first and the internal battery second. New revolutionary electronics mean that Thermion units can Instantly start-up from power saving ' Display Off ' mode. This quick start-up helps to save energy and thus prolongs operation time. The built-in accelerometer/gyroscope helps aid shooters by notifying them of ' cant ' greater than 5°, as well as performing an auto-shutdown when in a non-firing/resting position for further power conservation.
