Pulsar Axion XM30 F Thermal Imaging Monocular Details

  • Pulsar Axion XM30 F enables an easy observation due to its compact design, low weight, and ergonomic build

  • 16 GB of internal memory storage

  • Axion XM30 F has an APS3 battery which can quickly be changed without any inconveniences

  • The XM30 F unit has an AMOLED HD display which enables immaculate visual interpretation of the observing object

About the Axion series

Pulsar Axions are remarkably lightweight and compact thermal monoculars. The first models in this series were introduced in 2019 as a substitute for the Quantum Lite models which were discontinued in 2019. Every Axion model out there has three calibration modes (automatic, semi-automatic, manual) like the Helion units.

As for the Axion XM30 F, it is a successor of the Axion Key XM30 model, introduced in 2021. The previous Key model was divided into two, one with Key in its name and one without it. None of the Key models had the ability of video recording and Wi-Fi connectivity, but the new XM30 F model has this software available for use.

About the Model (Axion XM30 F)

Axion XM30 F has an enviable 16 GB of internal memory for the purpose of storing images and videos. When it comes to a display, it is available with the HD AMOLED 640x480 display. The HD AMOLED display is designed to face freezing temperatures all the way up to -25°C. With Axion, you are able to display a thermal image in 8 different colours. The White Hot and Black Hot are predominantly used for detection activities. The monocular has a thermal sensor resolution of 320x240 and 50mK NETD (Noise Equivalent Temperature Difference), which tells you how well the device can distinguish between tiny differences in thermal radiation in the image.

Optical Properties

The XM30 F model has a picture in picture 2.5-10x digital zoom and 3x optical magnification. With this model, a maximum observation distance for an animal, such as a deer is 1300 m. The angular field of view of the XM30 F unit is 7.8°x5.9° which means that this model is more appropriate to use on longer distances. If you also wish to capture images and record videos, then this thermal vision monocular is the one for you.

Great! By
I had been looking for a thermal imagining monocular for my husband for a while before I found these. He takes it when he goes hunting and absolutely loves that it has a removable battery. It’s very compact so it’s easy to bring along and it works well. The image is pretty good (my husband said he’s seen better but this was very good for the price!).

Excellent little guy By
Just came from an Extreme sniper competition in Poland where we've used this little device to spot trackers/hunters during the night orientation/evasion stage . Its size and compactness makes it a great tool and it works flawlessly. Especially important is its fast turn on speed and little light it emits to the outside (okular).

Great device, super slick body, average image By
I really like the quality of the device and the removable battery. The housing is just superb in this world where everything is out of plastic and this Axin is not.

The image is however a bit average, but in this price class more than good enough. I can easily spot a fox on 500 meters and this is enough for me.

(For the previous Axion Key XM30 model)
