Remaining true to our promise of continuous technological innovation, PULSAR is bringing yet another Firmware update enhancing the performance of our devices. Available on XP model line (*and XQ since 2nd of March 2020)

Image detail boost – a new function that increases the contour sharpness of the heated objects for a hefty image detail boost giving you an unprecedented level of image clearness and sharpness allowing you to identify objects even more confidently.

This option comes turned on by default, but can be switched off in the main menu. It is important to note that image detail boost shows its best colours in conditions of high temperature differences.


User mode – the purpose of different observation modes is to offer most suitable settings depending on the nature conditions. With firmware 4.0 we bring a fourth option the User mode. This development is a direct result of feedback and engagement from our customers and will be most enjoyed by advanced users who like to have more control on the setup of their device. The new observation mode, that allows you to select and save your personal preferences based on pre-existing observation modes (Rocks, Forest, Identification), contrast and brightness settings. You can tweak each of the three settings to suit your conditions most and once it is saved, the settings will remain as set even after switching back from other observation modes or turning the device off. You can modify the user mode through easy selection of settings in the quick menu.

New reticles – New colour options combination for thermal imaging riflescope Thermion XP: black reticle with white dot and white reticle with black dot.

Icon brightness settings – the range for the brightness of icons you see in the menu was increased, this allows to dim down the brightness even more, for comfortable viewing in conditions of really dark night and increase it for those really bright days.
