With its new all-in-one binoculars in the Habrok model series, HIKMICRO is focusing from the outset exclusively on devices with a 35 mm objective lens diameter on the thermal imaging channel side. There will be no versions with 50 mm thermal imaging lenses in this series, which is based on conventional stalking binoculars in terms of dimensions. The Habrok, named after the “best of hawks “in Norse mythology, is intended to make the additional carrying of stalking binoculars obsolete. Speaking of binoculars: in the Habrok, HIKMICRO is using round 0.49″ OLED displays for the first time instead of the rectangular displays previously used in thermal imaging devices and the like, making the viewing experience here more reminiscent of classic binoculars than an optronic device.
Interpupillary distance can be adjusted just as easily by moving the eyepieces on the housing, as well as diopter compensation on each eyepiece. The complete menu navigation can be made using a total of 6 control buttons on the top of the housing, each arranged in two rows with three rubberized and easy-to-read pictograms. The buttons can be quickly identified even in the dark.
For the power supply of the new Habrok models, HIKMICRO relies on the proven 18650 rechargeable batteries. Two batteries enable continuous operation of up to 6 hours.
Power is supplied by two commercially available 18650 Li-ion rechargeable batteries, the battery compartments of which are located on the underside of both tubes. The rechargeable batteries provide a runtime of up to 6 hours and can be changed silently if required. A total of four such batteries are included in the scope of delivery, so that the hunter should easily be able to survive a complete night session or an extensive stalking trip through the hunting ground. It should even be possible to replace individual batteries during operation without having to switch off the device. There is also the option of attaching a tripod adapter to the underside of the device between the two tubes and, under a protective rubber cap, there is also a USB-C port that can be used for the external power supply to charge the batteries or for data transfer. The Habrok also features an integrated hotspot that allows the device to be connected to the HIKMICRO sight app on the smartphone via Wi-Fi. The app is available to download free of charge for Android and IOS devices. In addition to a remote-control function, it can also be used to update the firmware and, of course, to manage the photos and videos stored in the Habrok. In keeping with the times, the new handheld devices have an integrated digital compass and GPS as well as a position sensor that deactivates or reactivates the display when the binoculars tilt changes in order to save energy.
