The rugged and versatile NVM14-WPT night vision monocular features performance specifications that rival military-issue NVDs.
The NVM14-WPT can be adapted for hands-free viewing with optional head and helmet mounts, or it can be fitted to a firearm as part of a formidable nighttime sighting system. The waterproofing of this NVD is remarkable; it's rated at 20 m/60 minutes. Run time on a single CR123A battery is an outstanding 60 hours/IR off, 30 hr/IR on. Yes, the NVM14-WPT can be powered by a "AA" battery, with a 50% reduction in run time.
Inside the NVM14-WPT monocular there's a powerful and eye-opening intensifier tube. Not only does this 2nd generation system provide specifications that rival premium 3rd gen optics, it should be noted that imagery viewed through the 6015-WPT are black and white (as opposed to the familiar greenish hue).
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.
