At the heart of the Vulcan 15 is the HIK Vision 384x288px, 17µm thermal sensor with a NETD rating of 35mK. This is the first time a high-resolution sensor of this quality has been offered on an entry level thermal spotter.

35mK NETD Rating = One of the most sensitive sensors available on the market, detecting even the smallest temperature differences!

Combine this with the HIK software that processes the image you see on screen and you have an unbeatable package that performs well above its price point. 

T-VISION APP: Connect – Control – Stream 

Connect your smartphone and take control of all features of the Vulkan 15. 

The T-Vision app allows you to stream the output in real time allowing you to share your viewpoint with a friend. 

You can also record images and video, optimise the colour profile, display settings and magnification all from the easy to use app.


Activate Hot Tracking and your Vulkan 15 will highlight the hottest spot detected in the current frame with a green crosshair. 

This is useful to highlight small heat sources as you scan around. 

This feature can also be deactivate in the menu or controlled in the App.
