The Quantum range of thermal imaging scopes is based on IR sensor (uncooled microbolometer) technology, and is represented by a number of models featuring various frame rates, magnifications and lens diameters.
These scopes are designed for use both at night and in the daylight. They are also able to be used in inclement weather conditions (fog, smog, rain) and to see through obstacles hindering detection of targets (branches, tall grass, thick bushes etc.).
Unlike image intensifier tube based night vision devices, Quantum thermal imaging scopes do not require an external source of light and are not affected by bright light exposure.
These scopes have a wide range of applications including hunting, observation & terrain orientation, search & rescue operations and more.
Quantum offers a choice of 6 colour palettes for captured images; monochrome (usually “hot white”, “hot black”) or coloured, highlighting the hottest and coldest areas with different colours
This scope has a stadiametric rangefinder, with a rangefinding reticle enabling precision distance measurement to observed objects with known height (deer - 1.7m; boar – 0.7m; hare – 0.3m).
High Image Frequency
Due to the high image frequency (50 Hz) it is comfortable to use the thermal camera dynamically, while moving rapidly or on a moving target.
The Quantum presents three operating modes, each designed to deliver best possible image in specific viewing conditions. The modes are: “City” (enhanced contrast), “Forest” (low contrast) and “Identification” (improved rendering of hot objects details).
Long Viewing Range
Actual range of detection of a human figure (1.8x0.5m) in the field (human has outerwear, in the field against the background of the forest) for the Quantum XDS varies from 500 to 1250 m, depending on the model.
When it is necessary to temporarily stop observation, the user can apply the "Display Off" function. This provides a level of camouflage between observation sessions, with no light from the eyepiece of the device, as well as the fast restart of observation. When display is turned off, all other systems are still working; to return to normal operation, simply power on the display again.
Power Saving Mode
Disabling the video output module on the Quantum thermal scope increases self contained operating time of a set of batteries or external power supply.
The Quantum has three calibration modes: silent manual mode (“M”), automatic (“A”) and semiautomatic (“H”). The “A” mode provides calibration without user participation; process initiation (actuation of the shutter) takes place automatically. In the “H” mode, the user can decide if calibration is required based on the image quality. Manual calibration (“M”) is carried out by pressing the button when the lens cap is closed. The “M” mode is recommended for hunting, due to its silent operation.
Quick Start Up
This thermal scope features a fast start up time (5-7 seconds) from the push of a button to full operational status. This is one of the best in its class.
The body, constructed of fiberglass reinforced plastic, is able to effectively withstand impact, moisture and dust, allowing the device to be used in extreme conditions. The rubber armouring ensures secure grip of the unit, even with damp hands.
Wide Range Of Operating Temperatures
Quantum thermal imaging scopes are able to be used in low temperatures (-25°C) thanks to the frost resistant OLED display employed in the unit; the image remains the same as when viewed at higher temperatures.
Brightness & Contrast Control
The control wheel, located next to the lens, allows the user to set up the brightness and contrast most appropriate for their specific situation.
Self Contained Power Supply
The Quantum is powered with four AA size (rechargeable) batteries. The batteries are stored in a container which is then placed in a battery compartment of the unit.
All Quantum models are equipped with an analog video output to enable connection of external recording equipment.
External Power Supply
The operation time of the unit can be significantly increased by the use of external power supplies, such as Pulsar EPS3/EPS5, that can be connected with a special jack. When used in frosty weather, the power supply can be stored under the clothes to optimize the battery life.
Actual information about the status of the thermal imaging device, depicted in the form of blue icons and numbers, is located on the data panel in the lower portion of the screen, and does not interfere with the image observed. When switching between various functions (digital zoom, colour inversion, brightness/contrast settings), the respective large sized icon appears in the right upper portion of the screen.
The main control functions (on/off, sensor calibration, colour inversion/digital zoom) are controlled with the buttons on the upper panel. The size and location of the buttons is customised for comfortable use both with a gloved or bare hand. Brightness and contrast are set up on the controller wheel located next to the objective lens.
