Pulsar Proton XQ30


Clarity In All Conditions…

The Proton XQ30 thermal imaging monocular features a highly sensitive 384×288, 17µm <40 mK NETD thermal imaging sensor and frost-resistant 1024×768 HD AMOLED display to present a crisp, high contrast image no matter what the weather throws at you.


Highly Sensitive Thermal Sensor

The Proton XQ30’s highly sensitive 384×288, 17µm <40 mK NETD thermal imaging sensor with 50Hz refresh rate offers excellent detail recognition even in harsh conditions when thermal contrast is low — meaning even the smallest of temperature differences will be clearly visible during heavy rain, snow, and fog.

30mm F/1.2 Lens

Combining this thermal sensor with the Proton XQ30’s powerful, fixed focus 30mm F/1.2 objective lens enables a detection range of up to 900m (when observing a standard 1.8m tall deer or human shaped object). Further improving the viewing experience, this device offers a 12.4°x9.3° field of view, ±5 dioptre adjustment, and 18mm eye relief.

Detachable Monocular

The Proton XQ30 combines a compact, highly sensitive thermal imaging device with the detachable Pulsar 5×30 B quick-release monocular to become a 5x magnification spotting scope for natural daytime observation and a thermal imaging unit which is compatible with monocular-type daytime optical devices. Using a special PSP quick release adaptor, this monocular will dock with daytime optics, seamlessly converting them into a thermal imaging device.


The Proton XQ30’s 1024×768 full colour HD AMOLED display offers improved colour rendering, high contrast imagery, and a clear and smooth picture — as well as quick-response and power saving features, meaning this display will always offer a flawlessly high-definition image and a crisp, vividly detailed field of view.

Image Boost

With Pulsar’s proprietary Image boost technology, the Proton XQ30F uses intuitive software algorithms to increase the overall image clarity and detail, resulting in a considerably sharper, more detailed field of view with enhanced object identification capabilities.

8 Colour Palettes

The choice of 8 colour palettes enables more effective observation of the field of view, optimising the unit for specific tasks, as well as enabling them to react to changing observation conditions.

White Hot, Black Hot and Red Hot are optimal for object detection; Rainbow and Ultramarine help increase chances for recognition & identification; and Red Monochrome, Sepia and Violet are most suitable for long observation in the night.

Operating Modes

Four operating modes are available to enable the most comfortable, convenient viewing experience. These modes include Forest (for use in low temperature contrast conditions), Rocks (for use in high temperature contrast conditions), Identification (high detail mode), and User (user defined brightness and contrast settings).

Calibration Modes

The Proton XQ30’s three calibration modes (Manual, Semi-Automatic, and Automatic) equalise the microbolometer temperature background, eliminating any defects and ensuring consistent image quality.

6 Hours Battery Life

The high capacity, rechargeable, quick-change APS5 li-ion battery will provide up to 6 hours of operation on just a single charge (depending on temperature). Fast and easy to replace, this battery pack will provide continuous observation without any disruptions.

Display Off & Instant Start-Up

To preserve battery life, Display Off mode deactivates image transmission to the Proton XQ30’s display, reducing the screen brightness to an absolute minimum and entering standby mode rather than powering down the scope entirely. Pressing the power button when the device is in standby mode will activate instant start-up and it will be ready and operational in just 3 seconds.

Magnesium Alloy Housing

The robust and durable magnesium alloy housing provides high structural integrity, making it shockproof and resistant against external mechanical, temperature, and climactic effects. The housing also serves as a heatsink, effectively dissipating any heat generated by the unit’s internal electronic components and improving the overall operational stability.

Lightweight & Compact

Weighing just 370g, the Proton XQ30’s lightweight characteristics prevent any meaningful effect in regard to the balance of any daytime optic on which it may be installed.

IPX7 Fully Waterproof

IPX7 waterproof rated, remaining flawlessly operational in heavy rainfall, snow, dense fog, or other precipitation such as environments with high levels of humidity. It will even survive a dip in up to three feet of water for up to 30 minutes.

Operating Temperatures

The magnesium alloy housing, power unit, and electronics have all been designed to perform effortlessly in a wide range of temperatures, remaining reliable and operating effectively in temperatures from -25 to +50°C.

Built-In Video Recorder

An on-board still image and video recorder requires just one simple press of the REC button to capture an image or record a video with audio, meaning any exciting moments can be recorded, re-watched, and even shared with friends. Images and videos are stored on the integrated 16GB of internal memory.

Stream Vision

The built-in Wi-Fi module within the Proton XQ30 allows the user to connect to their Android or iOS smartphone or tablet using the Stream Vision app, offering a wide range of connectivity features, including:

Use a mobile phone as a wireless remote to control and adjust the device’s settings. See all the changes made on a smartphone or tablet screen in real-time. Recording footage or capturing still images can also be achieved through a mobile phone.

Browse through all photos and videos recorded on the device and download or share these files with friends.

Enjoy all the latest features and stay up to date by remotely updating the device using Stream Vision’s remote update abilities, ensuring the Proton XQ30 is always running on the latest available firmware.

Wireless Bluetooth Remote Control

All aspects of the Proton XQ30’s operational features are wirelessly controllable using the ergonomically designed Pulsar Bluetooth Wireless Remote Control — offering a convenient way of operating the device when comfort and convenience requires the user to take their hands away.


Taking Thermal & Night Vision Outside of the UK.

Thermal imaging and night vision products are strictly controlled by ITAR regulations and are subject to UK Government Export Licensing Regulations. Dependent on specification, a licence may need to be obtained prior to the export, even temporarily (e.g. holiday), from the UK.

Additionally, some countries may be embargoed, and no thermal imagers or night vision devices can be taken or exported to them. It is the responsibility of the exporter, whether it be a company or individual, to ensure that such a licence is obtained.

Failure to comply is a criminal offence.
