Night Vision Devices Announces NEW BNVD-SG UL

Optimised for both White (P45) and Green (P43) image tubes

Night Vision Devices (NVD) announces the new BNVD-SG UL, ultra light dual tube goggle with Single Gain Control. At only 475g, this new Binocular Night Vision Device (BNVD) is the lightest fully functional dual tube goggle in the world.

The BNVD-SG UL incorporates new high performance optics that are not only much lighter, but also offer higher performance than standard optics,” the company states at SHOT Show. “Currently the AN/PVS-14 and most other night vision systems, use optics which were only designed for green (P43) phosphor image tubes. However these new BNVD optics were designed specifically to be optimised for both White (P45) and Green (P43) image tubes.

The BNVD-SG UL includes the following features: EMI compatibility, full dioptre adjustment range (-6 to +2), infrared LED and a close focus range of 9.8in, critical when trying to read maps or do close up work such as clearing a weapons jam.

NVD-BNVD-SG UL now also features a “TACTICAL Monocular Cutoff,” which turns off power to each channel of the monocular whenever a channel is rotated up out of the users line of sight. This eliminates stray light flashing the users helmet, which would reveal the user to anyone else on the battlefield. The BNVD-SG UL has an automatic system power cutoff whenever the BNVD is flipped up into the helmet mounted stow position, and then powers back on when it is flipped back down. This feature can also be turned off via a four position ON/OFF switch. The BNVD-SG UL is submersible to 66ft (20m) for up to three hours and is available with an optional battery pack, which holds three “AA” alkaline batteries for run times exceeding 50 hours.

The BNVD-SG UL can be used with optional 3X Afocal Magnifiers. Each 3X Magnifier can be either slide onto each objective lens or screw into the threads on the objective lenses. For extended use, it is recommended to screw them on to prevent the lenses from falling off. These magnifiers transform the BNVD-SG UL into a fixed 3X Magnification Binocular.
