Pulsar Core FXD50 Thermal Clipon Monocular

Pulsar Core thermal clipons build on the long tradition of high quality thermal imaging devices.  This versatile thermal clipon or thermal riflescope forward as Pulsar calls it, enable the operator to convert their daytime scope into a thermal imaging device.  Simply attach Pulsar Core to the objective lens of your daytime device and you have a capable thermal imager in your toolkit.  What sets Pulsar CORE apart from our similar devices made by Aramsight and ATN is its ability to function as a handheld monocular without any additional accessories being required.

Pulsar Core FXD50 Thermal Clipon Monocular description

Pulsar Core FXD50 Thermal Clipon Monocular

The Pulsar Core FXD50 Thermal Imaging Scope/Front Attachment was born to be versatile, operating either as a monocular or riflescope. This two-in-one concept has been implemented with a modular design so the unit can be easily and quickly converted from a monocular into a riflescope by interchanging the eyepiece or adding a mount. The CORE features a 2.8x magnification and a 2x zoom function.As a riflescope, the CORE features selectable preloaded reticles designed for various weapon types. The CORE also features “one shot zeroing” mode and “Freeze” mode. After taken a shot, the unit makes a screenshot of the display, which helps you match the point of impact with the aiming point. The “Picture-in-Picture” function allows shooters to see a 2x zoomed portion of the central part of display with reticle above the live image. This function is extremely useful for observing a small object at a long distance. Thanks to the larger view of the reticle, you can aim in a more precise way. The CORE is equipped with a universal prism allowing it to be installed on regular weapon rails. As an attachment, the CORE can be used with majority of day sights with lens diameters from 42mm to 56mm. A wide selection of reducing rings covers all diameters within this range. After the attachment is mounted on a day sight, the point of impact remains stable, so re-zeroing is not needed. As a monocular alone, the CORE is compact and light weight thermal unit perfect for observation at a distance of up to 1 km. The unit has high resolution 640x480 pixel, green display, which ensures comfortable perception and low eye fatigue. Increased Recognition and Detection Software employed in the CORE unit contributes to a high quality crisp image. The CORE features three image calibration modes, including fully noiseless mode indispensable for hunting.

Thermal Imaging

Please note that most thermal devices are built per order.  It may take 3-5 days or more for your order to ship.  If timely shipping is important to you, please, contact us to verify availability prior to ordering. 

Thermal devices can produce various types of images.  Some are color others are monochrome.  In either case change in shade or color indicates temperature differences.

Here is how thermal imaging devices work...

A special lens focuses the infrared light emitted by all of the objects in view.

The focused light is scanned by a phased array of infrared-detector elements. The detector elements create a very detailed temperature pattern called a thermogram. It only takes about one-thirtieth of a second for the detector array to obtain the temperature information to make the thermogram. This information is obtained from several thousand points in the field of view of the detector array.

The thermogram created by the detector elements is translated into electric impulses.

The impulses are sent to a signal-processing unit, a circuit board with a dedicated chip that translates the information from the elements into data for the display.

The signal-processing unit sends the information to the display, where it appears as various colors depending on the intensity of the infrared emission. The combination of all the impulses from all of the elements creates the image.

There are a few key Manufacturers when it comes to thermal imaging.  

ATN: produce such well knows devies as ThOR-HD thermal scope, BINOX-THD thermal binoculars, and OTS-HD thermal monocular.  

FLIR/Armasight: the largest maker of consumer level thermal products is well knows for their full product line.  Zeus thermal scopes, Q14 and Scout monoculars, Helios and Scout binoculars and many more.

Pulsar: a very popular brand for digital night vision and thermal imaging.  Key products include Pulsar Trail and Apex thermal scopes and Pulsar Helion and Quantum thermal monoculars.

Seek: mobile device mounted thermal cameras are the main products of this brand.

Delivery Time and Manufacturing Process for Pulsar Core FXD50 Thermal Clipon Monocular:

Most of our manufacturers do not keep products like Pulsar Core FXD50 Thermal Clipon Monocular assembled on the shelf. Night Vision tubes are kept separate from the body of the unit. When the order is placed, the manufacturer starts the order processing and assembly process which includes the following:

  • Order processing - we collect all the necessary information including address and phone numbers. We also make sure that our customer ordered the correct product for their needs and that the product can be exported by US law to the country of destination. In some cases a signed export compliance form is required.
  • QC - in this step the manufacturer will inspect all individual parts which will be used to assemble the night vision device for any defects.
  • Production & Assembly - during production, all the parts are put together. Night Vision tubes in inserted into the body of the unit and all the complex electronics for the device are connected. This process takes place in a special lab called the "clean room" as even a small speckle of dust can cause undesired optical effect.
  • QA - one the night vision device is assembled, it goes through a rigorous testing process to make sure it meets all the expected specifications and all parts function as expected. For this most manufacturers have a special "dark room" designed to allow testing of the units without causing incidental damage to the night vision tube by exposure to bright light.
  • Packaging - this is a key process as well. In most case your night vision device will be shipped to you directly from the manufacturer but sometimes needs to be sent to us first. In either case items need to be packaged securely to avoid any kind of damage during transportation.
  • Shipping - as described above items will most of the time ship from the manufacturer. For most domestic orders (unless shipping to POB or AFB) a premium shipper like FedEx or UPS will be used.

Only by following the above steps can we along with our manufacturers bring you - our customer - night vision products of highest quality, However as you can understand the above process can take several days to complete. For example if your device fails QA, the entire process restarts. Also at QC stage a manufacturer may realize that the tube they have in stock has a defect and a replacement tube needs to be ordered. Due to the complexity of this process, it is prudent to expect 3-4 business days for production and handling of the purchased device. Keep in mind that this process is designed to guarantee your satisfaction with the night vision device of your choice.  It occasionally possible to expedite the process for urgent orders but addional fees or other restrictions may apply.
