Pulsar | Helion 2 XQ38F | Thermal Monocular

SKU: PUL-77396

The Pulsar Helion 2 XQ38F  thermal imaging features the latest 17µm, 384x288 thermal core, to deliver market leading thermal scopes and night vision when shooting, it has advanced features such as integrated video recording, and wifi integration with iOS and Android mobile devices, delivering the very best thermal imaging through eight user-selectable colour palettes. The Pulsar Helion 2 XQ38F thermal spotter combines the latest technology with market leading performance, to provide the user with a range of up to 1.35 km allowing detection and observation of wildlife, humans or quarry at much further distances than previously possible with the previous Quantum XQ38 model. Helion XQ38F thermal models include 2.5x - 20.0x and 4.5x to 18.0x variable magnification, featuring both 2x step-up and smooth, graduated magnification for a truly optimum, customized field of view. Choose from one of eight user-selectable colour palettes, allowing you to spot quarry in cover, even when traditional thermal imaging devices are impeded such as in grass, foliage, or adverse weather.


By now, most thermal users are familiar with the sensor resolution of a device e.g. 384x288, and also the pixel pitch e.g. 17µm. The improvement of these new Series 2 devices concentrates on a key specification of thermal sensor technology – the NETD value.


The NETD (Noise Equivalent of Temperature Differential), expressed in millikelvins (mK) is one of the most important parameters for thermal sensors as it describes their sensitivity. The lower the NETD value, the higher the sensitivity.


In existing Helion, Trail and Accolade series models the NETD value was sub 60mK. The new <40mK sensor, exclusively manufactured by ULIS for Pulsar puts Pulsar devices at the forefront of the market with the devices all featuring a better image in conditions where there is a low-temperature difference such as during rainfall, fog or cold mornings. These environmental conditions are the most difficult for thermal imagers and this new sensor will provide a clearer image for users.


The ultimate handheld Thermal scope for spotting.

Helion 2 XQ38F Thermal Features

  • Integrated rangefinder
  • New Wireless remote control

The 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.

  • Market Leading Image quality

The latest 17µm sensors and a new heatsink, 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 calibrations.

  • Stream Vision integrated connection with a mobile device.

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.

  • New integrated power supply

Helion 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 in 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.

  • 8 Custom Colour Modes

In addition to user favourite "white hot" and "black hot" imaging, Helion thermal scopes offer a robust array of 8 colour palettes for true colour temperature mapping. Transitioning from colour to default white hot during operation is fast and easy.

  • Integrated Video Recording

Capturing still images and video is seamless with the Helion’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.
