NEXT RESTOCK ETA: 3-4 WEEKS
- Each unit includes a lightweight digital push-button battery pack.
- Units are priced by actual specs of the tube (allowing you to hand select). They are not priced by a tube's model (i.e. 18UM-24UA) as a model only guarantees a minimum FOM and maximum number of spots. Given the large variation of performance and cosmetics (spots) in the same model this should never be a preferred option.
- It's always beneficial for the BUYER to hand select. Many dealers will list models as they don't have the unit on hand (hence the lead time and lack of specs) or worse, don't want to reveal the specs of their NVDs. It's also possible that they just don't have the time. None are good alternatives to a ready to ship unit with available specs.
- SNR = Signal to Noise (Numeric)
- EBI = Equivalent Background Illumination (x10-11 phot)
- HALO = Halo (mm)
- LG = Luminance Gain (fL/fc)
- PC = Photocathode Sensitivity (2856k)
- CR = Center Resolution (line pairs)
- Spots: Listed on the data sheet as anything larger than .003”. Cosmetic speckles below .003" are not considered spots and are commonly referred to as peppering (or pepper flakes). Absent spots, a certain amount of peppering exists in nearly every tube. Spots and peppering occur as part of the manufacturing process.
Q: Why do some pictures look more blue vs. green? Is one better? Some appear to be brighter than others.
A: Tube pictures are only provided to show spots and cosmetic blemishes.Color differences are primarily a result of the digital images taken of analog tubes and are not a true reflection of tube performance. White phosphor tubes will appear white to the eye when used- not blue or green, though there can be very slight color variation among tubes.
- Pair with an iRay MH25 in a Panobridge for a NV / Thermal Fusion setup.
BACKGROUND ON THE PVS-14
The PVS-14 is the all around best multi-functional night vision monocular available. Head or helmet mounted, the PVS-14 allows the user to retain their night adapted vision in one eye while viewing their surroundings through the illuminated eyepiece of the PVS-14. The new battery housing completes the perfect package by allowing the user to power off the unit when in an upright position and power on when flipped down.
Gain control gives the user the ability to increase or decrease the tube gain. Under extremely dark conditions, gain control allows the user to adjust the gain upward, giving a better image. Under high light conditions, details can be washed out due to an excess of light. Lowering the system gain can allow those details to be better seen.
Additional features of the PVS-14 include an infrared LED with LED indicator and a low battery indicator.
We include the following with every purchase:
- PVS-14 touch button model with L3 filmless white phosphor, Mil-spec tube
- Data Sheet from L3 Harris
- Objective Lens Cap (A3144318)
- AA Battery
