At only 475 Grams, the BNVD-SG UL, ultra light dual tube goggle with Single Gain Control incorporates new high performance optics that are not only much lighter, but also offer higher performance than standard optics. 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 optimized for both White (P45) and Green (P43) image tubes.
The BNVD-SG UL includes features not found in other dual tube goggle designs in this weight class. These features include: EMI compatibility, Full Diopter Adjustment Range (-6 to +2), Infrared LED, and most importantly: a close focus range of 9.8 inches. This is critical when trying to read maps or do close up work such as clearing a weapons jam.
A power port can be added to the BNVD $265. The goggles can be connected to NVD's external battery battery pack. The power port can not be added after production.
Available with green or white phosphor tubes
Weighing just (475g/16.8 oz.) the BNVD-SG-UL is a lightweight system comparable to the AN/PVS-31, (450 g/16 oz.) and F5032 (500g/17.6 oz.) dual tube goggle systems
NVD-BNVD-SG UL now features a “Tactical Monocular Cutoff”, which turns off power to each channel of the binocular whenever a channel is rotated up out of the users’ line of sight. This eliminates stray light emitting from the monocular eyepiece, which would reveal the user to anyone else on the battlefield. The BNVD-SG UL has an automatic system power cutoff whenever the BNVD-SG UL 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 66 feet (20 meters) for up to 3 hours. The BNVD-SG UL is available with an optional battery pack, which holds 3 “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.
The optional external battery pack will only work with our Night Vision Devices manufactured binoculars with an external power port in order to extend the operating life of the system. If you would like to use this battery pack with this system, you must add the power port now when first assembled. The body cannot be modified afterwards. You may however, add the battery port now and purchase the battery pack at a later time.
