Image Intensifier Tube Type: ELBIT Pinnacle / Autogated Gen 3 – White Phosphor with Manual Gain Control (includes data sheet)
Image Tube Summary: These brand new Elbit Omni VIII MIL-Spec White Phosphor image intensifier tubes are the elite level of night vision image tubes. These tubes are what is currently being used by the US Military and are currently available for civilian use. However export of these units from the U.S. like all Gen 3 products are strictly prohibited without a proper export license. These Pinnacle image tubes are equipped with autogated power supplies that allow them to excel in all low light conditions regardless of artificial “light pollution “that occurs in urban areas. This auto-gating greatly reduces “halo” around any light sources and also eliminates the need for the unit to go into light-overload safety shutdown when exposed to excessive light. If you will be using your device in urban areas or in “light polluted” situations than this image tube will double your night vision’s capability!
Hand Select Quality: This is the absolute best you can get! Our Hand Select Image Tubes are simply awsome! With a guaranteed signal to noise ratio of 30.00 or higher, plus their exceptional image clarity they don’t get any better than these tubes. In fact only a very small percentage of our image tubes make our hand select cut. With these image tubes you can expect superior performance in the darkest environments thus giving you longer range and improved resolution in very low light.
Noteworthy Features: Manual Gain Control
Feature Summary: Manual Gain Control is one of the best performance enhancing options you can have on a piece of night vision equipment. This feature gives the user the ability to surpass the automatic gain control that is standard on most units, thus allowing the manual gain adjustment to boost light gain beyond where the built-in auto gain would go in very low light situations. In essence it gives the user control to “tweak the brightness” of the night vision device to the users preference based on current light situation which will often result in resolving objects that were too washed out or too dark to previously be identified.
If you can only own one piece of night vision equipment, this is it – this is the unit that can go anywhere and do almost anything. Our PVS-14 systems are the most versatile, capable, and durable of any night product on the market. With the right accessories and configuration these binoculars excel at virtually any night time optics task! Our PVS-14’s are truly the Swiss Army Knife of night vision equipment. Currently in use by US Armed Forces, the PVS-14 is the first choice for conducting combat operations to include dismounted terrain navigation in extremely low light conditions.
The highly versatile NO/PVS-14 system can be used as a hand-held or hands-free single eye goggle, or as a night vision weapon system when coupled to a daytime close quarters battle sight. Each system ships with a fully adjustable Head Mount Assembly and adapter to allow right or left eye use.
Simple user controls include a 3-position switch (OFF/ON/Momentary and constant IR). The system’s Generation 3 image tube features Automatic Brightness Control and is protected by fully-automated sensors that shut off the unit within seconds if accidentally exposed to bright light. Sophisticated electronics turn off the NO/PVS-14 when removed from the head or helmet mount or when shifted into to the “UP” position.
Light weight, rugged and waterproof, the NO/ PVS-14 is a powerful performer for use in confined as well as open spaces.
