Digital night-time night vision device with infrared laser illuminator and 4.6x magnification. The laser illuminator increases the range of the night vision device compared to the version with the LED illuminator. The device allows observation both at night and during the day. Digital technology is used here that uses very sensitive and well-functioning CMOS sensors of the new generation. In contrast to all previously manufactured night vision goggles PHOTON is built in the form of a classic telescope with a round-shaped tube. At this point, the already known problems with mounting such devices are disappearing - any installation with clamps with a diameter of 30mm is sufficient for mounting PHOTON. The PHOTON viewfinder lens has a diameter of 50 mm, so it is also sufficient to use a low or medium assembly.
In comparison with other night vision devices, the PHOTON stands out thanks to its simple operation. All knobs and manipulators were in easily accessible places, menu was limited to the necessary minimum.
The image visible in the device is digitally processed both at night and during the day. The device allows you to observe in complete darkness over a distance of 190 m (in the version using a laser scanner). Both versions with a laser illuminator (designation L) and a LED diode with a slightly smaller range (designation S) are available. Photons with a 50mm lens have a magnification of 4.6x. The heart of night vision goggles is a CMOS sensor with a resolution of 654 x 492 pixels. The image is displayed on the 640 x 480 display in black and white. It is possible to select six grids displayed digitally against the background of the visible image.
PHOTON has a shock resistance up to 6000 J.
The device has an IPX4 degree of protection (it is resistant to moderate splash and rain). The whole is extremely light, weighs 670 g, the same as a classic night spyglass. The device is powered by easily available and cheap AA batteries ("finger").
