Pulsar Merger LRF XP50: New Thermal Imaging Binoculars with LRF

    Pulsar Merger LRF XP50

    The new Pulsar Merger LRF XP50 thermal binoculars.

    At the IWA & OutdoorClassics 2022 exhibition (Germany), Pulsar will show their new Merger LRF thermal imaging binoculars, made in the classic design of daytime binoculars. The form factor of the Merger LRF thermal imaging binoculars is a small size, external aesthetics and exemplary ergonomics.  Six operation buttons are located in the comfort access zone. The thermal imaging sensor uses a 640×480 pixel @ < 25 mK NETD sensor, and the laser rangefinder works up to 1 kilometer.

    Here is the new Merger thermal binoculars description by Pulsar:
    Pulsar Merger LRF XP50: thermal performance with class
    Yukon Advanced Optics Worldwide is pleased to announce the next big launch
    in the Pulsar 2022 line-up: Merger LRF XP50 thermal imaging binoculars.
    Showcasing the next level in long observation, comfort of use and image detail and
    quality, this cutting-edge functionality and performance packed into its proven classical binocular design.
    Ideal for long observation
    The Merger LRF XP50 dual eyepiece fully unlocks the potential of human vision by reducing eye fatigue during long periods of observation.
    The human brain is conditioned to receive visual information from two channels simultaneously and combine them into a single image.
    Observing through a single-eye-piece monocular requires excessive effort from the brain to override the standard algorithm of visual perception. So, we can quickly feel fatigued.
    The dual binocular layout eliminates this problem. The result is a more natural and detailed appearance of the observed objects, even under low temperature contrast conditions.
    With the Merger you’ll be able to enjoy the view longer than ever!
    Plus, the ability to adjust the distance between the eyepieces means it can be customised to individual needs and eliminates the potential for double-vision images.
    Unprecedented comfort of use
    The ergonomics of the Merger LRF XP50 unfolds as soon as you hold it in your hands. All the important features are available at a single click of a button.
    The well-planned arrangement of the controls enables comfortable device operation with either hand.
    The classic form factor of the Merger combines the time-proven shape and ergonomics of conventional daytime binoculars.
    Always the best view
    The new Merger combines all the best components and features available at the
    minute resulting in unbelievably detailed and crisp images of both targets and backgrounds.
    With new electronics platform and enhanced image processing algorithms, the binoculars offer a new approach to image optimization for any observation purposes and conditions.
    A powerful 640×480 / 17μm French made Lynred thermal imaging sensor with NETD <25mK ensures perfect detail recognition even under the harshest weather conditions when the thermal contrast is low. It results in sharp, richly contrasted thermal imaging for enhanced identification of animals, their extremities and even the smallest details, like branches, leaves, grass, or terrain.
    The ultimate detection efficiency of the Merger is achievedwith the combination of the highly sensitive thermal sensor with the fast aperture F50/1.0 germanium lens. The lens power and sensor sensitivity ensure exceptional detection capabilities. A standard 1.8 m tall object can be detected up to 1800 m away in complete darkness.
    Dependable companion that won’t disappoint you
    With the new Merger LRF XP50 you’ll be able to precisely estimate the target distance which is essential for making the right decision. A built-in long-distance laser rangefinder with a detection range up to 1800 m fits into a single optical channel and allows you to measure distances of up to 1000 m in single measurements and in continuous scanning modes with an accuracy of ± 1for quick and error-free assessment of a scenario.
    You’ll be able to operate the binoculars for up to 10 hours on a single battery charge.
    Plus, the dual battery system allows you to quickly replace one of the batteries in complete darkness without turning off the device. This dependable companion is designed for constant and hardcore use. The high-quality reinforced magnesium alloy body is both light and strong.
    The housing reliably protects the internal components of the device from shocks, drops,
    moisture, heat and cold. At the same time, the metal housing effectively disperses
    heat from the electronics, minimizing the image noise, and increases the consistency of the operation during long-term observation.
    The new Merger LRF XP50 is unique for its high-grade functionality and enormous possibilities:
    -Classic design & compact size
    -Comfortable viewing experience for prolonged observation
