A step forward in thermal imaging

Helion 2 thermal imaging cameras are designed for professional and semi-professional use, including hunting, scouting and rescue operations. Hunters tracking game in the forest; hiking enthusiasts who want to protect their camp at night; security officers in search of suspects; civil protection officers in search of survivors or missing persons; the Pulsar Helion's functionality ensures that it is the right choice for every purpose.

High-resolution 640x480 thermal imaging sensor

The Helion XP features the uncooled micro-bolometric matrix 640x480px sensor, at 17µm, for a highly detailed image.

Built-in video recorder

Helion thermal imaging cameras are equipped with a video recorder for capturing video and photos during observation. The files are stored in the internal memory and can be transferred to a PC or smartphone via cable or Wi-Fi.

Observation range 1,800 metres

The effective range for a 1.8m x 0.5m object under field conditions (e.g. a person in outerwear, in the field with a forest background) is up to 1,800m, depending on the model.

B-pack power supply

Helion thermal imaging cameras have an autonomous B-pack power supply. This consists of a quick-change IPS7 power supply unit which guarantees 10-13 hours operation in the maximum-activity mode. Powerful IPS14 battery packs, as well as CR123A and AA battery compartments are also available to ensure flawless operation.

Stadiametric rangefinder

The Helion has a built-in stadiametric rangefinder, which is displayed as a reticle and accurately measures the distance to a target of a pre-determined size (deer - 1.7m; boar - 0.7m; hare - 0.3m) and displays it on the screen.

Colour palettes

In addition to the popular White Hot and Black Hot images, the Helion offers 8 colour palettes for accurate colour rendering of the temperature map. The transition from a colour palette to the default White Hot function is also quick and easy.

Remote control and live internet streaming

A highlight of the Helion is the ability to connect the device via Wi-Fi to an Android or iOS mobile device using the enabled Stream Vision app. The Stream Vision App firmware connects your Helion thermal imaging camera to an Android or iOS smartphone or tablet, and allows you to receive recorded files in the real-time mode, remotely control your Helion using your smartphone, and stream videos online to YouTube.

Variable magnification

Helion thermal imaging cameras feature magnification of up to 20 times depending on the model, with 2x step zoom and variable zoom for an optimum field of view.

High frame rate

Thanks to its high (50 Hz) frame rate, Helion thermal imaging cameras are particularly suitable for moving objects.

Completely waterproof

Helion thermal imaging cameras can be operated during rainfall of any intensity. Thanks to its IPX7 (IEC 60529) rating, heavy rain or snow will not cause any harm.

Updatable firmware

The Stream Vision app, compatible with iOS and Android, has been developed for initial installation and later updates. Stream Vision always provides you with the latest versions of the firmware.

External power supply

Helion thermal imaging cameras have a micro USB interface that enables power to be supplied from external power supply units such as power banks. The power bank will supply the device even in extremely cold weather conditions and protect it from rapid discharge.

User Interface

The Helion 2 is designed to be easy to use. The devices have a simple icon-driven menu, a clear display, and an alphanumeric status bar at the top of the display. Internal menu items are displayed on the high-contrast background, so you can adjust your device without losing sight of the action.

Power-saving mode

If the observation is to be paused for a short time, the user can activate the power saving function which deactivates the display. This function ensures that residual light from the device does not risk the user being detected, This, of course, also applies between observations or when starting an observation. The display remains switched off while all other systems continue to function. To reactivate the device, you only need to switch on the display.

Wide operating temperature range

The frost-resistant AMOLED display with 640x480 pixel resolution ensures trouble-free operation at extreme temperatures of -25°C - +50°C.

Remote control (optional)

An ergonomically designed remote control with control wheel provides absolutely simple control.

Effective sensor temperature stabilisation

The cooling fins on the device's housing prevent the sensor and other components from overheating.
