The BNVD Standard Kit Night Vision Binocular from N-Vision Optics takes the concept of night vision one step further by offering two Pinnacle intensifiers in this well engineered design form with variable gain control. Binocular night vision viewing offers a comfortable viewing experience full of depth and accurate perspective. Not only do you feel the experience of true stereoscopic viewing, you also get the light intensification performance from dual premium 3rd generation Pinnacle intensifiers. Depth perception and well detailed resolution are mission critical factors, and the BNVD comes through in spades.
The scope can be operated as a hand-held binocular, or head mounted or helmet mounted for hands-free tactical operations. A head mount is included in this standard kit. The high performance and maximum versatility of the BNVD night vision binocular are huge tactical advantages that will give you the edge you need to overcome all obstacles. The device is submersible to a depth of 66 feet / 20 meters.
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 this varies by manufacturer, so ultimately the generation of the intensifier tube is much more relevant than any quoted statistic when determining the maximum viewing range.
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.
