BNVD-SGC Night Vision Binocular – Single Gain Control

BNVD-SGC Night Vision Binocular – Single Gain Control


Gen 3 Elbit White Phosphor Minimum FOM (Figure of Merit) 1900.


The next generation Binocular Night Vision Device – Single Gain Control, is the culmination of improvements to the rugged and proven BNVD-SG system. Utilizing feedback from thousands of end-users, the BNVD-SGC introduces a new rotary control switch. The single switch controls system power, gain, and auxiliary functions, providing intuitive control with a substantially lower weight. The BNVD-SGC also includes an improved Diopter Adjustment Assembly with reduced backlash, tighter feel, and improved strength. The IR Spot Flood Assembly has been upgraded to provide a wider Flood setting, filling the entire field of view, as well as a more concentrated Spot setting to illuminate hallways and caves void of light. The BNVD-SGC comes standard with Lightweight Sacrificial Windows which can be threaded into the Objective Lenses to provide protection while still allowing the use of the Lens Covers. Like its predecessor, the BNVD-SGC features diopter focus from +2 to -6 diopters, a close focus of 9.8 inches (25 cm), and fully meets the latest release of MIL-STD-810H including 66-foot immersion.


The BNVD-SGC features a “Tactical Monocular Cutoff”, 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-SGC can be used with optional 3X Afocal Magnifiers. Each 3X Magnifier can be either slide onto each objective lens or screw into 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-SGC into a fixed 3X Magnification Binocular.


The optional external battery pack will only work with our Night Vision Devices manufactured binoculars with an external power port in order to extend the operating life of the system. If you would like to use this battery pack with this system, you must add the power port now when first assembled. The body cannot be modified afterwards. You may however, add the battery port now and purchase the battery pack at a later time.


The BNVD-SGC has been rigorously tested for US Military and DoD EMI compliance by an independent, Gov’t support facility, and qualified for conformance to MIL-STD-461G, RE102, RS101 and RS103. This means that BNVD-SGC has an extremely low electronic emission signature, making it nearly impossible to detect its use, even in close quarters. The BNVD-SGC was also shown to not be damaged nor suffer performance degradation when exposed to very high electrical field strengths, over a broad frequency range, as measures of electromagnetic susceptibility. These proven factors make the BNVD-SGC robust under the harshest of EMI conditions.


This system complies with MIL-STD 810G, MIL-PRF-A3256342A(CR) and MIL-PREF-49427(CR).
