The PVS7-3A is a robust and dependable night vision binocular from ATN. Its water and fog proof housing is complimented with all-glass optics and a high quality 3rd generation light intensification system. The binocular configuration with its two oculars and a single objective offers a greater sense of depth perception; this results in an enhanced sense of dimension within the scene, and longer term viewing comfort.
Many variables affect the distance that one can see with a night vision device; the object's size, the level of details being sought, the conditions of observation, the performance level of the NVD. The important factors to consider when evaluating any night vision device are the intensifier tube's generation, s/n ratio, level of magnification, specified resolution, along with the clarity & light transmission performance of the optical stack.
All night vision devices sold by B&H have bright-light-protection systems. This does not mean that bright light will not damage the device; exposure to a bright-light source will compromise the longevity and performance of any image intensifier tube.
