Pulsar Merger LRF XL50 Thermal Imaging Binocular

Thomas Jacks Ltd Stand: 5/L172

Featuring the latest HD 1024x768 @ 12 µm thermal sensor, the new Pulsar Merger LRF XL50 thermal imaging binoculars offer a next level thermal imaging experience. The image generated by new 1024x768 thermal sensor features high definition and rich detail. 

The Merger LRF XL50's variable 2.5-20x magnification provides improved focus and better overall object recognition at significant distances. The HD-sensor allows the user to maintain high levels of image detail over the entire magnification range. The zoom changes either gradually in 2x step or continuously for a customized FOV/magnification ratio for each specific situation.

Using an exceptionally powerful 50mm f1.0 objective lens in combination with professional grade 1024x768, 12µm, <40mK NETD HD thermal sensor, the Merger LRF XL50 provides exceptional detection capabilities 24/7 at distances of up to 2300m on a man-sized subject!

Just like its LRF XP50 sibling, the Merger LRF XL50 has been built with the classic roof prism design of daytime binoculars in mind. With a small form factor, these thermal imaging binoculars fit comfortably in the hand, but still offer appealing external aesthetics and exemplary ergonomics. Six function buttons are placed in a comfortable, easy-to-access arrangement, with the most-used functions activated with just a single touch.

The optical design fully considers the nature of human vision: It is natural for a person to receive visual information through two visual channels simultaneously, viewing with two eyes is less tiring than viewing with one - this means users are able to achieve better detection of small or faint objects, and experience greater levels of performance in low-contrast scenarios than similar monocular-style thermal imaging devices with the same technical abilities. The Merger LRF XL50's interpupillary distance is adjustable from 62 to 74 mm in accordance with the individual characteristics of a particular user.

Understanding the target distance can be an important factor for some end-users, which is why the Merger LRF XL50 feature a built-in precision laser rangefinder, offering a measuring range of up to 1000m with an accuracy of ± 1m and allows for distance measurements in single measurements and continuous scanning modes for quick and error-free assessment in any situation.

The Merger LRF XL50 is powered by two rechargeable batteries - one built-in with a capacity of 4 Ah, the other replaceable with a capacity of 3.2 Ah. A single charge guarantees a long battery life of up to 8 hours (depending on temperature). An embossed effect on the body of the replaceable battery has been incorporated to allow for fast and accurate determination of correct battery position, making quick and confident replacement of flat batteries easy, even in complete darkness by touch.

Features a built-in still image and video recorder to allow users to capture all the best moments during their observations. 16GB of internal storage allows for hours of video and tens of thousands of photos to be saved to the device, with an additional 16GB of free Cloud storage available on the free-to-download Stream Vision 2 app. One touch of a button is enough to take a photo of an interesting scene or to start recording video. Footage captured on the device is easily copied to a computer hard drive via a USB-C port.

Built-in Wi-Fi (which can be disconnected) connects the Merger LRF to Android and iOS smartphones via the Stream Vision 2 mobile app, opening up a wide range of connectivity options, including wireless device software updates, real-time image transmission from the device to the smartphone screen, photo and video sharing, image gallery, remote control of digital device functions, and access to the latest news from Pulsar via Newsfeed.

The Merger LRF XL50 features dual-band Wi-Fi support. Complimenting the standard smartphone 2.4 GHz connection frequency range with an effective 5 GHz range. This 5GHz connection offers better bandwidth, a faster data transfer rate, noise immunity, and improved connection stability - resulting in more productive and easier operation of the thermal imager when connected to a smartphone via Stream Vision 2.

The Merger LRF XL50 is IPX7 waterproof rated for protection against heavy rainfall, snow or other precipitation. The unit is designed to run flawlessly, even after submersion in up to 1m of water for up to 30 minutes. Housing, power unit, optics and electronics of the Merger LRF XL50 have each been designed to withstand extreme temperatures, ensuring this device operates effectively in any environment. This device will remain operational in temperatures between -25°C and +50°C.
