The ultimate hand held thermal imager for spotting foxes, lamping foxes at night, and deer stalking by day.

Integrated rangefinder

Based on estimated heights of observed objects, the stadiametric rangefinding reticle makes determining precise distances fast, easy, reliable and repeatable.

New Wireless remote control

The ergonomic, wireless remote control, with encoder wheel, puts the full range of the Helion’s capabilities at your fingertips for comfortable, convenient, hands-off operation.

Market Leading Image quality

The latest 17µm sensors and a new heat sink, located on the device's body, effectively prevents heat build-up from the sensor and other components while also significantly reducing temperature and noise sensitivity, especially between calibrations.

Stream Vision integrated connection with mobile device.

The Stream Vision software connects the device with Android/iOS mobile unit (smartphone or tablet) which enables you to receive footage in the real time mode, to distantly operate the device with your smartphone, as well to stream online the image captured by the device to Youtube.

New integrated power supply

Helion includes a progressive autonomous B-Pack power supply consisting of a quick-detach, rechargeable IPS5, 5.2A-h battery pack designed to deliver over 8 hrs. of operation on maximum mode. Higher-powered IPS10 battery packs, as well as CR123A and AA battery cases, also are available and provide a perfect off-the-grid power solution.

8 Custom Colour Modes

In addition to user favourite "white hot" and "black hot" imaging, Helion thermal scopes offer a robust array of 8 colour palettes for true colorised temperature mapping. Transitioning from colour to default white hot during operation is fast and easy.

Integrated Video Recording

Capturing still images and video is seamless with the Helion’s built-in video recorder. Image and video content is stored internally and can easily be transferred to PC/laptop via wired connection or Wi-Fi.
