Thermal imaging scopes are designed for use both in the nighttime and in the daylight in inclement weather conditions to see through obstacles hindering detection of targets. The Quantum Lite XQ30V is based on an IR sensor (uncooled microbolometer) which does not require an external source of light and is not affected by bright light exposure. It can be used for tracking targets and detecting heat signatures up to 875 yards away, making it ideal for hunting, law enforcement, search and rescue, and personal security. The Quantum Lite XQ30V has three operating modes (city/forest/identification), three calibration modes (manual/automatic/semiautomatic), multiple color modes, and defective pixel repair. This handheld thermal imaging monocular features an incredible twosecond startup time, automatic shutoff, video output, tripod mount, and uses four (4) AA batteries.
