Pulsar Axion Key XM22 thermal imaging device
The thermal imaging device Axion Key XM22 from Pulsar is the slimmed down version of the Axion XM30s. Thanks to its compact size, the Pulsar Axion Key XM22 fits perfectly in one hand and offers a comfortable handling and excellent ease of use. The Axion Key XM22 is the perfect thermal imaging monocular for search, observation, rescue and terrain orientation.
Unlike the Axion XM30S, the Axion KEY XM22 has no recording and streaming function, but comes with a different lens and display.
The thermal imaging device Pulsar Axion Key XM22 works with a highly sensitive microbolometer, a thermal sensor that captures, processes and transmits medium and long wave infrared radiation to the display. Whether rain, snow or fog, the Pulsar Axon Key XM22 is protected from the element water thanks to its IPX7 protection class and functions reliably even under the harshest weather conditions. With the thermal imaging monocular Axion Key KM22, even objects covered by bushes, tall grass or branches can be detected. Unlike a night vision device, the thermal imager does not require additional IR illumination, but is not suitable for observation through a window, as the heat radiation from the inside disturbs the thermal image.
Pulsar Axion Key XM22 - the compact thermal imager with long observation distance!
Long detection distance
With its powerful lens in combination with the highly sensitive 12 µm thermal image sensor, the Pulsar thermal imaging device Axion Key XM22 offers exceptional detection capabilities. An object the size of a human with dimensions of 1.8x0.5 meters can be detected up to a distance of 950 meters and this in total darkness.
12 µm thermal image sensor
The new thermal imaging sensor with 12 µm pixel pitch helps to achieve higher optical magnification and observation distance while making the unit more compact.
Different color palettes
In addition to the main white/hot mode, the Pulsar Axion Key XM22 offers additional color settings that can represent different degrees of heat. The settings "white hot" and "black hot" are often used for target detection at night. "Sepia" is mainly used for the observation of distant objects. The modes "red hot", "rainbow colors" and "ultramarine" also show the temperature differences.
Robust magnesium alloy housing
The light magnesium alloy body provides high structural rigidity and robustness with low weight and optimal ergonomics.
B-Pack Mini Power System
The miniature power elements used in the Pulsar Axion models ensure sufficient operating time and can be replaced quickly. B-Pack miniature batteries can be charged directly in the device via USB using the supplied charging cable.
The 2x optical magnification of the Axion Key XM22 can be increased up to a factor of 4 using digital zoom. This results in a magnification range from 2 to 8x.
Calibration (nuc / non uniformity correction)
The Axion Key XM22 thermal imaging device provides three different calibration modes: silent manual mode ("M"); automatic mode ("A") and semi-automatic mode ("H"). In "A" mode, the unit calibrates itself completely automatically. In "H" mode, the user decides when to calibrate the unit by pressing the "Cal" button. Manual "M" calibration is also performed by the user with the lens cap closed. This mode is recommended for tactical use and hunting, as it is largely silent.
The image optimization should be done according to the environmental conditions. Mountains, forests and cities have different media temperatures. Therefore, certain settings have been optimized and are available as profiles to achieve the highest image quality.
The Axion Key XM22 has an integrated stadiametric rangefinder, which is displayed as a scale and precisely measures the distance to the object of observation with the size known in advance (deer - 1.7 m; wild boar - 0.7 m; hare - 0.3 m) and displays it on the screen.
Thanks to the new, revolutionary electronics, the Pulsar Axion Key XM22 can be started practically without delay. A quick start-up helps to save energy and thus extends the operating time. The device can be stored in a pocket and then quickly activated when the right time comes.
Fully waterproof IPX7
The Axion Key XM22 is completely waterproof, which allows it to be used in bad weather conditions, whether it's rain, snow or fog. The IPX7 rating means that the Axion key has been rigorously tested to withstand extreme natural weather conditions. The Axion can even withstand a 30-minute immersion in water 1 meter deep.
In image-in-image mode, the observer gets a second small image of the central field, so the target object can be viewed in detail without loss of field of view.
With the Helion 2 thermal imaging camera, the user can switch off the display if observation is to be stopped for a short time. This function allows the observer to be unmasked, as no residual light escapes from the eyepiece. While the display is switched off, all other systems continue to operate. The display is reactivated with a simple keystroke.
Brightness and contrast adjustment
Contrast and brightness can be manually adjusted to personal requirements.
