Enhanced image processing algorithms

The Axion 2 thermal imaging devices use a new approach to image optimisation depending on the purposes and conditions of observation and provide high-quality rendering of both target objects and background. Three levels of signal amplification in combination with a connected smoothing filter and fine brightness and contrast adjustments give the hunter great opportunities for long-range detection of the animal under different weather and temperature conditions and determining its trophy qualities.

 

High-quality reinforced magnesium alloy housing

Axion is designed for constant, often hard use. A magnesium alloy housing is light and strong at the same time. The housing reliably protects the internal components of a thermal imaging device from shocks, drops, moisture, heat or cold. At the same time, a metal housing effectively removes the heat from electronics, minimizes image noise and increases consistency of the device operation during long-term observation.

 

Highly-sensitive European-made Lynred sensor

The Axion 2 thermal monoculars are equipped with a European Lynred sensors with a resolution of 384x288 pixels (pixel size 17 µm) / 640x488 pixels (pixel size 12 µm), which qualitatively capture a useful signal under difficult observation conditions, such as rain, fog and high atmospheric humidity at the observation site.

 

Fast aperture F35/1.0 lens

Germanium F35/1.0 lens features high infrared transmission in the LWIR range. Due to the high precision manufacturing of the optical elements of the lens, the image generated by the Axion 2 thermal imaging device sensor is distinguished for its clarity and detailing.

 

Extended battery life. Up to 11 hours on a single charge

A high-capacity APS5 rechargeable battery provides, depending on model, up to 11 hours of continuous operation of the thermal imaging device on a single charge. The battery is removed from a battery housing and replaced with a new one in seconds. The battery is charged in a special charger or inside the device from a PC, household power system or power bank via USB-C. The same sources are used for external power supply of a thermal imaging device.

 

Improved Wi-Fi connectivity with 2.4 / 5 GHZ waveband support

In Axion 2 thermal imagers, the standard smartphone connection frequency range via a 2.4 GHz WiFi channel is complemented with an effective 5 GHz range. The 5 GHz 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 with a smartphone.

 

Detection range up to 1750 m

A powerful F35/1.0 objective lens combined with a highly-sensitive thermal imaging sensors provide exceptional detection capabilities. A standard 1.8m tall object can be detected up to 1750 m away in complete darkness.

 

Pocket-sized dimensions and light weight

Axion 2 has a space-saving and pocket-sized design and weighing 300 grams. The device is easy to grip and operate by right-handed and left-handed people due to the symmetrical design and in-line buttons arrangement on the upper panel.
