The Pulsar Thermion XM38 is an upgraded and physically redesigned successor to the Pulsar Trail line of thermal rifle scopes. Like the Trail, the Thermion is notable for many reasons but most importantly Pulsar offers an industry leading feature set - 320x240 12 micron sensor resolution with shuttered NUC, on-board recording, picture in picture, one shot zero, rechargeable batteries, and much much more. The Thermion XM38 has a long list of built-in features that are sure to impress but also work to the users advantage. This scope was designed with bolt action hunting in mind.

What's new on the Thermion?
The Thermion has all the firmware features of the Trail, with the added benefit of new crisper color reticles in black, red, white or green. The Thermion also uses a new battery style that loads in the top turret, and is compatible with select 30mm scope rings. The Thermion is the thermal scope for a bolt attion rifle due to the physical dimentions being modeled after a traditional day scope.

At the heart of the Thermion XM series is a 320x240 uncooled microbolometer(thermal sensor) at 12 micron, for highly detailed imaging. Thermion XM models include variable magnification, up to 4x depending on model, and feature both 2x step-up and smooth, graduated magnification for a truly optimum, customized field of view.

High image frequency
At a high refresh rate of 50Hz, provides comfortable viewing throughout dynamic, rapid motion.

High recoil resistance rating
The Thermion features exceptionally high shock resistance, capable of handling high-powered firearm recoil, up to .375-cal., including smoothbore and airsoft as well as 12 guage shotguns.

3 Zeroing Profiles / 15 Distances

Save three individual firearm/ammunition zeroing profiles, including different reticles, at up to five distances, in the Thermions memory. Zoom zeroing support ensures precise zeroing accuracy.

7 Static and 3 Dynamic Scaling Reticles

The The Thermion is the first Pulsar thermal to feature new scaling reticles. Each reticle is detailed with corresponding MOA values that are intended for use on 1X digital zoom(static reticles
For detailed images and descriptions please see the Thermion reticle catalog.

Picture-in-Picture mode
Picture-in-Picture improves accuracy by providing a magnified image of the reticle area at the top of the display. With only 1/10 of the display area reserved for PiP, the field of view remains virtually unobstructed for simultaneous PiP and FOV viewing.

Built-in video recording
Capturing still images and video is seamless with the Thermion’s built-in video recorder. Image and video content is stored internally and can easily be transferred to PC/laptop via wired connection or Wi-Fi.

Mobile-friendly (iOS, Android) with remote control and live internet streaming
The thermion can link via Wi-Fi the device with Android and iOS based mobile units using the free mobile application Stream Vision. The Stream Vision software connects the device with Android/iOS mobile unit (smartphone or tablet) which enables you to receive footage in the real time mode, to distantly operate the device with your smartphone, as well to stream online the image captured by the device to Youtube.

Built-in accelerometer / gyroscope
A built-in accelerometer/gyroscope improves accuracy by precisely identifying cant and angles greater than 5° with an arrow indicating the direction and degree of lateral tilting. Increased angles are denoted with additional arrows.Moreover, the riflescope can be set to auto shutdown when resting in a non-shooting position. Unit operation may be disabled when the vertical angle is greater than 70° or horizontal angle is greater than 30°. The accelerometer feature may be temporarily disabled for continued use at excessive angles.

Stadiametric rangefinder
Based on estimated heights of observed objects, the stadiametric rangefinding reticle makes determining precise distances fast, easy, reliable and repeatable.

IP67 waterproof-rated protection ensures the Thermion performs perfectly in wet weather, even during intense rain, snowfall and submersion in 3 ft. of water for up to 30 min. (IEC 60529).

Wide range of operating temperatures
With a frost-resistant AMOLED display, the Thermion thermal imaging sight is designed to deliver flawless performance at an extreme temperature range of -25° ... +50°С.

Display-off mode
During short periods of inactivity and better concealment, Display Off powers down the display without interrupting other operating functions. Using Display Off means a much faster restart time when you need it most.

User-friendly interfaceUser-friendly interface
The Thermion is designed with ease-of-operation in mind. User feedback has resulted in the most friendly interface to date, complete with an easy-to-read, icon-driven, alpha-numeric status bar at the bottom of the display. Internal menu items and options are also displayed on a contrasting gradient substrate so you can keep an eye on settings without losing sight of your objective.

    Happy with support and product.

    Posted by Chilo Carlson on Sep 3rd 2019

    It was very easy getting on the phone and working with someone to get the scope ordered. Very satisfied with how easy it was to have someone assist me in checking to see if it was in stock and answering questions. It took no time to get to my house. I ordered on Monday morning and received it the next afternoon.
