The latest thermal imaging Helion 2 was built based on a very sensitive NETD sensor <40mk high resolution and a 50mm light-sensitive lens. This combination allows you to observe the image with excellent resolution at a range of up to almost two kilometers. The field of view of Helion 2 XP50 allows you to effectively detect objects from a large distance by observing a large fragment of the terrain, but from a smaller distance we have no problem with the error-free identification of the object.
The image resolution is 640x480 pixels. The basic magnification is 2.5x, it can be increased up to 20x by digital method. The device was built on the basis of an improved hardware platform, common for Helion thermal imagers and Trail sights. Innovative electronics allow image processing in a more efficient way, with lower noise than in the equipment produced so far, all Helions are equipped with an image recorder. Helion series Imagers are designed for observing terrain over long distances. Helion 2 can detect a human at a distance of almost two kilometers and works with a resolution of 640x480 pixels.
A characteristic element in Helion 2 Imagers is a dedicated 5.2 Ah battery mounted on the side of the housing. These batteries are easily replaceable, it is possible to purchase additional batteries (including batteries with twice the capacity) which in practice solves problems with power supply in the field. The second characteristic element is the heat sink that dissipates heat from electronic systems, which has a significant impact on reducing the noise of the observed image.
Helion 2 has extensive image processing options. It is possible to precisely adjust the brightness and contrast as well as the use of one of seven color palettes. The device has a digital zoom switchable in the cycle: 1x, 2x, 4x, 8x, as well as smoothly in steps of 0.1x. The image can be calibrated manually as well as thanks to the automatic image analysis algorithm. In addition, there are three modes to choose from that group the best settings for different work environments.
Helion 2 Imagers are equipped with several technological innovations. These devices have a simple to use image recorder that allows you to take pictures and record videos. The files are stored in the internal memory of the device with a capacity of 16 Gb. The Imager has a USB socket for transferring recorded files from the internal memory to a computer. What's more, this socket can be used for power supply using standard 5V power banks. Lovers of new technologies will be pleasantly surprised by the possibility of viewing the image on mobile devices using the StreamVision application. The image and control commands are transmitted thanks to the WiFi network created by the Imager. Connecting to the Imager via WiFi, we can access not only the observed image but also to the device control functions.
The distance is measured using a stadia parametric rangefinder that allows you to assess the distance to targets of known sizes. All Helion series Imagers are relatively small, solidly built and adapted to work in difficult weather conditions. They are waterproof constructions, operating at temperatures from -25 to +50 degrees.
