NV Depot Pinnacle Gen3 Night Vision Binocular Single Gain Control Mil Spec Ultra description

NV Depot Pinnacle Gen3 Night Vision Binocular Single Gain Control Mil Spec Ultra 

The Night Vision Depot (NVD) Binocular Night Vision Device with Single Gain Control (BNVD-SG) represents a lighter version of Night Vision Depot devices with no loss in performance. This version of night vision binoculars utilizes single brightness (gain) control knob for adjusting brightness level depending on level of ambient light. The BNVD-SG can be operated as a monocular – you can choose the arm you want to use as a night vision device and rotate the other side out of the way. When BNVD-SG is not used and is in upright position, it does not interfere with objects above the user's head – a great tactical feature for situations when you rapidly move in/out of vehicles or enter/exit unknown premises. Light weight of the device allows it to be worn for extended time. Night Vision Depot BNVD-SG runs on one AA battery for 30 hours of continuous use. Also, the device can be used underwater on depths up to 60 feet.

This Unit includes:

  • System/Data sheet

  • Lens caps
  • Neckcord

Gen 3P 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.

Our Night Vision units with the 3P designation use ITT Pinnacle™ Image Intensifier tubes. The industry leading ITT Pinnacle™ image tubes utilize a gated power supply providing truly outstanding performance in high-light or light-polluted areas, such as urban environments. The Pinnacle™ tube with gated power supply minimizes any “halo” effects. “Halo” is often associated with using night vision devices in an urban area where random street lights are often an issue with early Generation Night Vision devices. Night Vision units with Pinnacle™ tubes have a resolution of 57-64lp/mm and a typical signal to noise ratio between 16.2 and 25 . All Night Vision devices utilizing Pinnacle™ Image Intensifier tubes come with ITT data record sheet. Units with Pinnacle™ tubes are not available for export. A signed export compliance and end use statement is required prior to shipping of these units.  As with all night vision tubes, each one coming off the production best has different parameters.  We can help you with picking the parameters which will fit your needs and the price of the device will depend on the quality of the tube you select.

3P Gen. ITT Pinnacle™ IIT Features:

• Photo Cathode type: Gallium Arsenide
• Resolution from 57 to 64 lp/mm
• Signal-to-Noise Ratio: 16.2-25 
• 10,000-hour tube life

Delivery Time and Manufacturing Process for NV Depot Pinnacle Gen3 Night Vision Binocular Single Gain Control Mil Spec Ultra:

Most of our manufacturers do not keep products like NV Depot Pinnacle Gen3 Night Vision Binocular Single Gain Control Mil Spec Ultra 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.

Questions on NV Depot Pinnacle Gen3 Night Vision Binocular Single Gain Control Mil Spec Ultra

From on

Q: I'm comparing your model #s NVD-BNVD-SG-ULT (Single Gain) with the NVD-BNVD-G-ULT (Dual Gain). All specifications for the two models are the same except the NVD-BNVD-G-ULT (Dual Gain) has listed a higher Signal-to-Noise Ratio and better Photocathode Response than the NVD-BNBD-SG-ULT. Both models are priced at $9147.40. NVD-BNBD-SG-ULT (Dual Gain): SNR = 25.0 min; Photocathode Response = 2200 min NVD-BNVD-G-ULT (Single Gain): SNR = 30.0 min; Photocathode Response = 2400 min Why is there a difference? As far as I can tell, the dual gain and single gain are mechanical differences not I2 tube differences? Thanks, Don

A: Hi Donald. You are absolutely correct. The IIT specs ont he two night vision devices are identical. We have corrected the NVD-BNVD-G-ULT model. Thank you for bringing this to our attention. Please let us know if you see any other issues or have any other questions.
