Pulsar have a long history with Thermal Imaging Binoculars, with models like the Accolade and the Merger – all reviewed by TFB of course. It’s now time for a more compact Merger, called the Merger LRF XQ35, which has a lot of features to become a perfect companion for hunters and rescue workers. The new, compact Merger uses a European-made thermal sensor, with 384×288 pixels @ 17 µm and a sensitivity of < 25 mK NETD. Apart from the thermal capability, there is also an integrated Laser Range Finder which is said to reach out to 1 kilometer.
Pulsar @ TFB:
There’s a proximity sensor, with auto on and off depending on if you have it close to your eyes or not.
Here we go, the presentation in Pulsar’s own words:
Merger LRF XQ35: the power in a compact body
Yukon Group launches the most compact thermal imaging binoculars Merger LRF XQ35 by Pulsar. We’ve put together all the powerful capabilities of the XQ sensor and the precision of the laser range finder into the classic and lightweight body of the new Merger.
