(SHOT SHOW 2021) The PD-PRO-16B Binocular Night Vision is designed around a 16mm image intensifier tube that allows the system to be smaller and lighter without sacrificing performance. The system specifically built to highlight all the capabilities and benefits of a Photonis filmless 4G image intensifier tube.
Available only in the US from the world’s premier supplier of image intensifier tubes to international markets, Photonis. The housings can be manufactured from either rugged lightweight aerospace alloy or for even more weight savings they can be created out of ultralight magnesium.
Ambidextrous controls provide equal adjustment capability using either hand eliminating the need for “work-arounds”.
Approximately 25 hours of continuous operation on internal battery.
Standard version is submersible up to 32 feet (10 meters). Salt water restrictions
apply for magnesium variant. A submersible version (PD-PRO-16B-SUB) is submersible up to 66 feet (20 meters) and has been tested to 2-hour/20-meter US MIL-STD-810G requirement.
