What is a BNVD?
The BNVD is a binocular night vision device that features individual articulation (both channels can articulate individually). BNVD’s feature outstanding depth perception and supportability at reasonable price points. BNVD’s are designed to be comfortable and capable of wearing for long periods of time with minimal fatigue.
BNVD’s are a rugged option for people looking for binocular night vision that also features articulation. The housing has a very robust yet simple design that has been proven in the field over time. Rest assured that with the BNVD’s you will have a high performance, high endurance binocular night vision device that will last, even through harsh environments.
The difference between the BNVD and PVS-14:
The PVS-14 is a monocular meaning it has one image intensifier tube that can be used over one eye. BNVD’s feature two separate image intensifier tubes and allow you to see with both of your eyes through the unit. The benefit of Bino’s over a PVS-14 is better depth perception, less fatigue, and an overall better nigh vision experience in the darkness.
Features of the BNVD night vision binocular:
The BNVD’s we offer feature “tactical monocular cutoff” which means when either channel is rotated up and stowed, it automatically shuts off the unit. This conserves battery life but also minimizes chance of revealing positions of the user in the darkness. The unit will automatically power up either channel when rotated back down into position. This feature can be disabled with the four position power switch. The BNVD is submersible to 66 feet for up to 3 hours. The BNVD’s we offer feature internal battery power which houses 1 AA battery for up to 20+ hours of run time with Alkaline AA and up to 40 hours+ run time with Lithium AA battery.
Units are manufactured for us by Night Vision Devices and are backed by their 10 year warranty.
This system complies with MIL-STD 810G, MIL-PRF-A3256342A(CR) and MIL-PREF-49427(CR).
NOTE: Lead times for units shown above is 1-4 weeks. This may change without notice as the market is incredibly volatile. Currently L3 tubes are 6 months or more out. For this reason we are equipping citizens with other high quality and available options.
