iRay MH25 and PVS-14 IC|D-14 Dual Mounting System
The system comes standard with one PVS-14 mounting arms and one iRay MH25 thermal adapter, or two PVS-14 mounting arms and one iRay MH25 adapter.
Integrated Components iRay MH25 and PVS-14 IC|D-14 Dual Mounting System™ offers an adaptable system that can be configured as a single-tube or dual-tube stereoscopic night vision thermal dual band system. The need for binocular depth perception is particularly acute when operating at night, and users of single-tube PVS-7 or 14 systems are at a significant disadvantage when it comes to effective tactical night movement, and detection. IC’s mounting system increases the flexibility and utility of the PVS-14 and thermal device by making it possible to rapidly detach one or both devices from the headgear for use as a weapon-mounted night sight, for handheld use as a surveillance or observation device, and as a force multiplier by distribution to others without night vision devices.
The unique design of the iRay MH25 and PVS-14 IC|D-14 Dual Mounting System™ also allows one or both devices to be swung up 180 degrees, completely out of the line of sight, without disturbing the eye alignment of the other device, and when the entire assembly is folded back against the helmet the system allows both devices to be folded further back towards the helmet than any other system. This feature decreases the chances of knocking the devices against branches, doorframes or other obstacles as well as keeping the center of gravity of the helmet as far back as possible for operator comfort. The system comes standard with one PVS-14 mounting arms and one iRay MH25 thermal adapter, but it can be used with a single PVS-14 or iRay on either eye, without anything interfering with the visual field of the opposite eye, and it can be instantly upgraded to a dual-tube system whenever a suitable unit is available.
The iRay MH25 and PVS-14 IC|D-14 Dual Mounting System™ offers redundancy, flexibility and ease of maintenance. Unlike a dedicated PVS-15 system, dual PVS-14s and dual band systems give the user two separate power supplies, decreasing the potential for complete system failure. Moreover, the IC system does not interfere with the installation of the PVS-14 Ultimate Weapon Mount and is compatible with all Wilcox and Norotos dovetail helmet mounts.
This bridge will also work with the ML19, and the RICO MICRO (if it has the PICTAIL Shoe attached P/N: IRAY-AC52).
