ITT Pinnacle Image Intensifier Tube
The PVS7-3P is equipped with an ITT Pinnacle Image Intensifier Tube. These industry-leading tubes use a gated power supply to provide actually outstanding performance in high-light or light-polluted areas, such as urban environments. The ITT Pinnacle works by eliminating the “halo” effects that people frequently associate with night-vision devices in cities, where random street lights were frequently an issue when the usage of early-generation night goggles. Night vision units with Pinnacle tubes have a typical resolution of 64-72 lp/mm and a typical signal-to-noise ratio of 24.
Night vision goggles work by amplifying existing ambient light.
How Night Vision Works
All ATN night vision devices consist of several main parts: an objective lens, an eyepiece, a power supply, and an image intensifier tube (photocathode tube). The devices function by gathering existing ambient light, such as starlight, moonlight, or infrared light, through the front lens. This light, which is made up of photons, goes into the photocathode tube and is converted into electrons. Next, the device amplifies the electrons to a much greater number through an electrical and chemical process, and then hurls them against a phosphorous screen that changes them back into visible light. The image will appear through the eyepiece as a clear, green-hued, amplified re-creation of the scene you were observing.
All night vision devices need some light to amplify. That’s why all ATN night vision devices have a built-in infrared illuminator (IRI). An IRI essentially throws out a beam of infrared light that may be near invisible to the naked eye, but your night vision device can see it. This permits you to use your scope even in total darkness. The IRI works like a flashlight, which is why the distance You’ll see with it is limited. Despite the fact that ATN IRIs extend out to 100 yards, the IRI may cover only 40 to 60 percent of the viewing area.
How Far Can You See?
There are lots of different variables that can impact the distance you see with a night vision device. First, what are you trying to see? Are you on the lookout for another boat on the water or are you on the lookout for a rabbit in the woods? The larger the object, the easier it is to see. Plus, are you trying to see details (commonly known as “recognition range”), or are you just trying to see if something is there? Maybe you’ll see just the movement, but will not be able to resolve 100 percent who are what it is. This is known as “detection range.” Another variable is lighting conditions. The more ambient light you have, the better and further it is possible for you to to see. You’ll all the time see further on a night where the moon and stars are out than if it’s cloudy and overcast. ATN in most cases states that You’ll tell the difference between a female and male or a dog and a deer at about 75 to 100 yards. Alternatively, if you were taking a look across an open field and there was once a half moon out, it is advisable see a barn or a house 500 yards away.
The goggles come with a head-mount assembly for hands-free wearing.
