The PVS-7 is equipped with Automatic Brightness Control (ABC) to adjust image brightness in changing light conditions to maintain image definition and clarity. The builtin infrared illuminator provides a light source beyond the visible spectrum to enable the user to operate in complete darkness without being detected.
Additionally, the PVS-7 has a bright light cutoff feature to protect the image tube from sources of intense light, and a flip-up shut-off feature that can be used with the optional helmet mount system. The PVS-7 has two LED indicators in the eyepiece for the IR illuminator on and low battery indicator.
Lightweight, tough, and versatile, the PVS-7 can be handheld, or mounted to the user?s head/helmet. It is compatible with afocal magnifier lenses for superior long-range viewing.
