2.1x optical magnification of the device can be increased up to 4.2x using the 2x digital zoom. The imaging principle is based on the difference of temperatures of the objects under observation. The image is transferred to a high-contrast OLED display in two modes: “White hot” or “Black hot”.
Main control elements (on/off, sensor calibration, image inversion, digital zoom activation) are located on the top of the device. Large sized control buttons allow bare hands operation and operation in gloves.
Activation and operation of the device (running time set-up, choice of video output signal, brightness and contrast adjustment) can be performed with the help of the encoder wheel. The Quantum series are equipped with a jack allowing external power supplies to be attached. The thermal imagers also have a video output to conduct video recording to external devices during observation.
The Quantum features quick start-up time less than 10 seconds – time between the push of the ON button and readiness to begin operation. The image is stable, without distortion across the whole field of view and without “tunnel effect”. Quantum thermal imagers can be used within a wide temperature range from -20 °С to 50 °С.
Quantum’s lightweight carbon-filled body features lengthwise serrated rubber armoring providing secure grip of the unit in a hand. The thermal imager is equipped with a Weaver-rail Mil-Std 1913 enabling extra accessories (external power supply, video recording devices) to be attached.
