Equally at home in urban and woodland environments, Pulsar's Quantum HD38A 32mm Thermal Monocular is ideally suited for detecting and monitoring such diverse subjects as wildlife, game, animal stock, industrial/structural/insulation applications, and people. Its 384x288 uncooled LWIR microbolometer picks up heat signatures through fog, smoke and haze and displays the images on a 640x480 resolution 0.31" LCD eyepiece display. For external monitoring or to record images, there is a 3.5mm video-out jack.

The optical system features a 32mm diameter germanium-glass objective lens with a 38mm focal length and f/1.2 focal ratio. While opaque in the visible spectrum, the germanium lens has high transmission in the long infrared region, which makes it ideal for thermal imaging. It is equipped with a 2x optical magnification and a 2x digital zoom for a max magnification of up to 4x. This provides a useful zoom range without sacrificing a broad field of view which helps to maintain situational awareness.

The housing is made of lightweight fiberglass-reinforced composite material that is impact and corrosion-resistant. This composite material is also temperature resistant to limit excessive expansion and contraction in extreme temperatures which can cause the optics to move out of collimation over time making images appear fuzzy and virtually impossible to sharply focus. Ribbing on the body provides a slip-resistant grip, especially in cold or wet conditions, and an included hand straps provides an additional level of security. The control buttons are arranged in a staggered configuration that puts them in easy reach for one-handed operation with either hand.
