The PS22-3 is a night vision attachment that converts your day-time sighting system into a mission critical night vision weapon sight. The PS22 can be co-aligned on a weaver rail with a red-dot or open collimating type of sight, fitted directly to the front of your riflescope with an optional bracket, or attached to an A.R.M.S. quick-release mount.
The PS22 is designed to operate within the 1-6x magnification range of your daytime optic. However, you will experience optimum performance within the 2.5-4x power settings.
There are many different variables that affect the distance that one can see with a night vision device, among them the object's size, the level of details being sought from the object and the conditions of observation. Night vision devices detect much further under a full moon and clear skies than they will under a new moon and cloudy skies.
Many different formulas are used to determine the statistic of maximum viewing range and the method of calculation varies by manufacturer.
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 mechanisms in place to protect the intensifier tube from a sudden burst of bright light, but this does not mean that bright light doesn't damage the device. No matter what, bright light in any form is not good for the longevity and performance of image intensifier tubes.
