Armasight about the N-14 Exportable Night Vision Monocular:

The Armasight N-14 is the new standard by which all compact multi-use monoculars will be judged in future.

We built this body to surpass MIL-SPEC-810 specifications, and so the Armasight N-14 can withstand salt water, rain, high humidity, extremes of temperature and still give unsurpassed levels of performance.

The N-14 mini-monocular is equipped with automatic gain control so that the image brightness level always adjusts for the ambient light level in user's area of operations. The Armasight N-14 is available with a whole array of accessories like – 3, 5 and 8X magnification lenses for mid-long range viewing, head or helmet mounts to allow the unit to be worn as a mono-goggle, various different weapon mounts for tactical or hunting use and detachable IR illuminator for long range use.

Gen 2 Night Vision

Please note that most high end night vision devices are built per order.  It may take 3-5 days or more for your order to ship.  If timely shipping is important to you, please, contact us to verify availability prior to ordering.

2nd generation is primarily used by law enforcement or for professional applications. This is because the cost of a 2nd Gen. unit is approximately $500.00 to $1000.00 more then a 1st Gen. The main difference between a 1st and a 2nd generation unit is the addition of a micro-channel plate, commonly referred to as a MCP. The MCP works as an electron amplifier and is placed directly behind the photocathode. The MCP consists of millions of short parallel glass tubes. When the electrons pass through these short tubes, thousands more electrons are released. This extra process allows 2nd generation units to amplify the light many more times then 1st generation giving you a brighter and sharper image. 2nd Gen. IIT standard 2nd generation tubes are high quality with exceptional brightness and resolution. Each tube has a micro channel plate, multi-alkaline photocathode with built-in power supply.

2nd Gen. IIT Features:

• Photo Cathode type: Multi-Alkali
• Resolution from 40 to 45 lp/mm
• Signal-to-Noise Ratio from 12 to 20
• 5,000+ hour tube life

Delivery Time and Manufacturing Process for Armasight N-14 SDi Universal Night Vision Monocular Gen 2 Standard:

Most of our manufacturers do not keep products like Armasight N-14 SDi Universal Night Vision Monocular Gen 2 Standard assembled on the shelf. Night Vision tubes are kept separate from the body of the unit. When the order is placed, the manufacturer starts the order processing and assembly process which includes the following:

  • Order processing - we collect all the necessary information including address and phone numbers. We also make sure that our customer ordered the correct product for their needs and that the product can be exported by US law to the country of destination. In some cases a signed export compliance form is required.
  • QC - in this step the manufacturer will inspect all individual parts which will be used to assemble the night vision device for any defects.
  • Production & Assembly - during production, all the parts are put together. Night Vision tubes in inserted into the body of the unit and all the complex electronics for the device are connected. This process takes place in a special lab called the "clean room" as even a small speckle of dust can cause undesired optical effect.
  • QA - one the night vision device is assembled, it goes through a rigorous testing process to make sure it meets all the expected specifications and all parts function as expected. For this most manufacturers have a special "dark room" designed to allow testing of the units without causing incidental damage to the night vision tube by exposure to bright light.
  • Packaging - this is a key process as well. In most case your night vision device will be shipped to you directly from the manufacturer but sometimes needs to be sent to us first. In either case items need to be packaged securely to avoid any kind of damage during transportation.
  • Shipping - as described above items will most of the time ship from the manufacturer. For most domestic orders (unless shipping to POB or AFB) a premium shipper like FedEx or UPS will be used.

Only by following the above steps can we along with our manufacturers bring you - our customer - night vision products of highest quality, However as you can understand the above process can take several days to complete. For example if your device fails QA, the entire process restarts. Also at QC stage a manufacturer may realize that the tube they have in stock has a defect and a replacement tube needs to be ordered. Due to the complexity of this process, it is prudent to expect 3-4 business days for production and handling of the purchased device. Keep in mind that this process is designed to guarantee your satisfaction with the night vision device of your choice.  It occasionally possible to expedite the process for urgent orders but addional fees or other restrictions may apply.

    • Q: wtf is sdi

    • A: Hi Travis.

      That's a good way to phrase your question. I won't make any presumption and will start from beginning.

      Night vision monoculars like any other analog night vision devices operate using night vision tubes. These tubes provide the light amplification which allows for night time vision. There are several technologies of night vision available in the market currently. These technologies are called "generations". The higher the generation the brighter and sharper your image.

      Standard Definition (SD) and Standard Definition International (SDi) are Armasight nomenclature for standard Generation 2. These devices will give you visible range of around 130-150 yards and much brighter image than a Gen 1 device would. SDi night vision tubes have been approved for export while SD have not.

      Please let us know if you have any further questions about Armasight N14 SDi or any other device.
