The lightweight, durable, and waterproof N-14 2nd Gen Standard Definition (SD) Night Vision Monocular from Armasight is a versatile 2nd generation night vision device that can be used handheld, mounted on a weapon, or used with headgear. The Armasight second generation intensifier tube technology incorporates a microchannel plate, multi-alkaline photocathode, built-in power supply, and 18 mm format screen, which improve reliability, image brightness, and quality compared to first generation devices. The Standard Definition (SD) devices offer green images a resolution of 45-51 lp/mm. To protect the tube and your eyes from a sudden flash of bright light, the tube has a bright light cut-off function that will shut down the tube. If there is not enough natural infrared and your targets appear too dark and with little detail, the built-in infrared illuminator will provide additional illumination and help improve visibility even in complete darkness. The 1x optical system offers a wide angular field of view, a 0.8' minimum focus distance, and can be upgraded to 3x, 5x, and 8x with optional objective lenses. Additionally, the monocular has an auto shut-off function and a low battery indicator.
The composite housing is waterproof, lightweight, durable, and provides protection from adverse conditions and extreme temperatures. It is contoured and has ergonomic controls, knurled adjustment rings, and a wide rubberized winged eyecup.
