The PNP-MCS is an image intensifier mini monocular night scope incorporating the latest technologies in a compact robust moulded glass filled polymer lightweight body with interchangeable 'C' mount objective lenses .
With the PNP-MCS's interchangeable lens feature, standard photographic equipment can be quickly turned into a powerful, effective night-time device, dramatically enhancing your intelligence gathering and observation capability.
The unique feature is the standard “C” mount for the objective lens, enabling standard CCTV camera lenses to be used. Special purpose adaptors enable the PNP to be mounted onto a wide variety of dSLR and video cameras (including CCTV cameras).
* Unique to the industry, the PNP-MCS incorporates a 75mW IR illuminator - 4x more powerful than all other NVD’s map reading illuminators. The additional invisible 810nm IR illumination provides up to 20m of unseen ‘to the naked eye’ luminosity – a critical tactical advantage! A red LED in the eyepiece illuminates when the IR illuminator is on as does a yellow LED when a low battery state occurs.
* The in-built ‘safety photo sensor’ prevents accidental operation during daylight by terminating power to the Image Intensifier Tube, which otherwise, would typically irreparably damage the Tube. This protection, of course, does not activate in darkness in the case of bright flashes, vehicle headlights even at very short distances, nor in street lighting
or inside illuminated confines.
Utilising the PNP-MCS's Optical Modules (see images at right) instead of utilising the camera's lens as a relay lens, allows the operator to seamlessly & effortlessly mount the PNP-MCS on Nikon & Canon EOS dSLR bodies without having to pre-focus the cameras lens & without having to adjust the zoom lens. On cameras with nominal 24mm x 16mm or 36 x 24mm APSC or FF chips, dependant upon camera body, vignetting of the image may be eliminated.
PNP-MCS is a powerful, multi-purpose pocket-sized monocular night scope. The pocket scope is designed to be used either as a stand-alone night vision device or in combination with a wide variety of camcorders, dSLR photography, CCTV equipment and spotting scopes.
It is ideally suited for covert night-time observation and intelligence-gathering purposes using standard photographic media, as well as an effective aid to night-time field missions.
PNP-MCS employs a choice of image intensifier tubes characterized by high resolution and a clear, bright image including autogated types.
In addition, a range of adaptors allow dSLR camera lenses to be used on the PNP-MCS in place of CCTV lenses.
