AGM 1.7x25mm Short Range Thermal Imaging Monocular Review

Score more achievements in your hunting and tactical operations with the Global Vision Asp Thermal Imaging Monoculars that designed by the industrial-leading thermal and night vision products manufacturer AGM.

AGM is one of the topmost companies producing quality and reliable products, especially they are well known by thermal imaging devices like cameras, thermal scopesclip-on systemthermal binoculars, monoculars, riflescopesnight vision goggles and etc.

They are also present in the line of best tactical gadget producers TN, FLIR, Pulsar, Armasight.

Okay, now I’m going to review the mechanism, features, specifications, construction, technologies of Global Vision Asp 1.7x25mm Thermal Imaging Monocular from the Short Range Series of AGM.

To ensure the safety and reliability of the monocular it’s built with rugged but lightweight materials.

The materials are finely crafted to work in complicated weather and bad terrain. And the device is equipped with credible housing thus it has the ability to withstand any peripheral conditions.

It’s very compact and lightweight thus the user can carry this monocular in his pocket, and it allows you to carry this on a single hand.

Thermal Technology

Due to the development of technologies, thermal monocular detects target by the heat signature of objects. This thermal imaging technology is superior to night vision technology.

The reason is night vision devices just need a minimal amount of light source to detect the target in the nighttime.

Rather, the thermal imaging devices detect the target even in the pitch darkness without any external light source.

Thermal Sensor Properties

Generally, AGM produces three different ranges of thermal monoculars such as short-range, medium-range, and long-range.

In this way, 1.7x25mm monocular comes under the short-range to offer precise detection.

This short-range thermal monocular is equipped with a quality thermal sensor with a resolution of 384×288 pixels.

Superior Detection Range

With the VOx Microbolometer thermal detector, approximately you can have a thermal detection range of 330 meters.

Because as I said before, it’s a short-range thermal monocular that detects a target nearby you.

It is equipped with a 1.7X short magnification range to offer a clear and accurate viewing while you’re in the hunting field.

Although it comes with a short magnification, it offers two different digital zooming options as 1X and 2X.

To offer a wide range of detection it is configured with a FOV of 14.88°- 11.19°. Besides, it’s fitted with a 17 micrometers pixel pitch to deliver stunning performance.

Image Processing

The device has the distance measurement function to target the object even in any weather and terrain conditions.

As well as it has a 50 Hz refresh rate thus you can easily target the fast-moving objects even in a dense forest.

Despite the monocular has short-range detection, but to offer the crystal clear viewing it consists of an OLED type display with a very high resolution of 1024×768 pixels.

With the help of a large objective lens with a diameter of 25 mm you can get a detailed vision in the detection area.

To protect the device from the damage caused by weather, the outer body materials are equipped with IP67 rated waterproof aspect.


Due to continuous use, the device can sometimes emit heat that is out of range. At that point, all of the internal elements of the device may be damaged by the state of the heat.

This thermal monocular handles the operating temperature of -30 – 55 Celsius, with the aim of keeping it at a moderate temperature, always protecting the device from such irregularities.

The 25mm lens is designed by quality glass materials and the device comes with rubberized eye relief. Both the features offer great output than you expect.

Like the long-range thermal monocular, the AGM Asp allows the user to detect the object pitch darkness.

As well as it overcomes all the obstacles like smoke, fog, snow, dust to deliver lucid output.

You can connect this thermal monocular to your phone and make a snapshot and video recording. If you want to change the parameters of the device, you can do so via APP.

Final Words

With this AGM Global Vision Asp 1.7x25mm Short Range Thermal Imaging Monocular you can do more professional and semi-professional applications.

I think now you understood everything about this short-range thermal monocular and its aspect.

So before you embark on any tactical task make sure you have the right thermal binocular. Because going anywhere with the right equipment can lead to good results.
