The Night Vision Devices BNVD-SG Binocular is a dual tube goggle with gain control. The BNVD-SG operates with a single gain control knob that controls both eyepieces simultaneously. Depending upon the amount of ambient light, the user can adjust the tube brightness (gain) lower to compensate for overly bright conditions or to increase the gain under extreme dark conditions. The BNVD-SG can be used as a monocular by choosing which side you want to use as your night vision eye and rotate the other side/arm of the binocular up and out of the way. This enhanced capability allows the user to rotate either monocular channel away from their eye while leaving the other monocular channel in place. This provides the operational flexibility to use the BNVD-SG as either a dual-eye or single-eye device. When used as a monocular, the user can operate the BNVD-SG with weapon mounted sighting equipment without sacrificing night-time situational awareness. Best of all with all the added features, the BNVD-SG is still substantially lighter than the AN/PVS-7 single tube goggle.
NVD BNVD-SG now features a ‘Tactical Monocular Cut-off’, which turns off power to each channel of the binocular whenever a channel is rotated up out of the users’ line of sight. This eliminates stray light emitting from the monocular eyepiece, which would reveal the user to anyone else on the battlefield. The BNVD-SG has an automatic system power cut-off whenever the BNVD-SG is flipped up into the helmet mounted stow position, and then powers back on when it is flipped back down. This feature can also be turned off via a four position ON/OFF switch. The BNVD-SG is submersible to 66 feet (20 meters) for up to 3 hours. The BNVD-SG is available with an optional battery pack which holds 3 x AA Alkaline batteries for run times exceeding 50 hours.
The BNVD-SG can be used with optional 3x Afocal Magnifiers. Each 3x Magnifier can be either pushed on to each objective lens or the push-on adaptor can be removed and screwed directly in to the threads on the objective lenses. For extended use, it is recommended to screw them on to prevent the lenses from falling off. These magnifiers transform the BNVD-SG into a 3X Magnification Hand-Held Binocular.
