Pulsar HD38S overview

  • 1Description

The black Quantum HD38S 32mm Thermal Monocular from Pulsar is intended for detection and monitoring of heat emanating from wildlife, game, animal stock, faulty wiring and piping, structural and insulation defects, running engines and human bodies. With this device you can see those heat sources through fog, smoke and haze. The monocular features a micro-bolometer sensor with a resolution of 384x288 pixels, and 7.7µm to 13.2µm spectral sensitivity. The produced video output has refresh rate of 30 Hz and can be viewed via a built-in 640x480 OLED display, and relayed to an external monitor or a recording device using a video port. The OLED display combines higher efficiency with lower power consumption, while delivering brighter and higher contrast images than a similar LCD display.

The optical system features a 32mm f/1.2 germanium lens. While opaque in the visible spectrum, the germanium lens has high transmission in the Long Infrared region, which makes it ideal for thermal imaging. The optical system provides a 2.1x optical zoom and allows for a wide angular field of view. If you need a close up of your target, the imager also has a digital zoom of 2x.

The housing is made of lightweight and durable glass-nylon composite and has a texture with coarse deep groves to allow a good grip. The housing is IPX4-rated for weather resistance from splashing water. The control buttons are arranged in a staggered configuration to for an easy reach and one-handed operation with either left or right hand. This thermal imager can also be mounted on a tripod via a top or a bottom 1/4"-20 sockets. Additionally, it has a Weaver style mount adapter for connecting accessories. The eyepiece has a diopter adjustment and a rubberized winged eye-cap. Also included, are a carrying case, a hand strap, a car adapter, an extra battery container, and a lens cloth.
