Description of Tube:
ITT PVS-14 Night Vision Autogated Gen 3 Pinnacle F9810SLG (MX-11769) image intensifier tubes consists of a high-efficiency GaAs photocathode bonded to a glass input window, a micro channel plate (MCP) current amplifier, and a P-43 phosphor screen deposited on an inverting fiber-optic output window. The Gen 3 photocathode is very sensitive to low-radiation levels of visible and, especially, near infrared light. It also provides very high signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) for extended detection ranges at very low light levels as well as variable gain to optimize performance in the ITT PVS-14 Night Vision Autogated Gen 3 Pinnacle. Export Restrictions Warning: Export of U.S. manufactured night vision equipment is strictly prohibited without a valid export license issued by the U.S. Department of State Office of Defense Trade Controls, in accordance with International Traffic in Arms (ITAR), Title 22, Code of Federal Regulations Part 120-130, and/or the U.S. Department of Commerce. For further information contact the Office of Defense Trade Control @ (202) 663-1282 and / or the U.S. Department of Commerce.
The 6-micron channel spacing in ITT’s MCP provides exceptional resolution. The MCP has a thin ion-barrier film that preserves photocathode sensitivity during operation, thereby greatly extending the life of Gen 3 tubes compared to Gen 2. ITT continues to improve Gen 3 MX-11769 image intensifier tubes to increase operational range and situational awareness for the user. Equipped with an auto-gated power supply, the Pinnacle® versions provide truly outstanding performances in high-light or light-polluted areas, such as urban environments. In addition, the PINNACLE® tube provides a much reduced halo.
ITT’s MX-11769 Gen 3 18-mm image intensifier is completely self-contained with an integral high-voltage power supply. Equipped with automatic brightness control (ABC), this power supply provides constant output image brightness as light levels increase. It also provides bright-source protection to guard the tube against exposure to high levels of light.
ITT PVS-14 Night Vision Autogated Gen 3 Pinnacle Image Intensifier with hand select tube is currently the top of the line.
