TNVC is now offering the incredible MOD3 Night Vision Goggle System. The MOD3 is the most modular goggle ever created and features a fully functional binocular system that can be broken down into two individually-operating monoculars in seconds. TNVC assembles the MOD3 with brand new high spec L-3 OMNI VIII MX10160 image tubes complete with factory data sheets.
Until now you could either have a binocular or monocular. The MOD-3 overcomes this problem by utilizing Optical Pods that are waterproof, Nitrogen purged units that can be installed into either a monocular or binocular. Power is conducted to the intensifier tube and indicator LEDs by means of spring loaded, gold plated contacts. Even the springs are gold plated to prevent corrosion.
The Optical Pods can be assembled in the MOD-3 Binocular Bridge to form a full function binocular. A latching mechanism firmly holds the Optical Pods in place and is easily manipulated with one finger. Installing or removing the Optical Pods is accomplished in just a couple seconds.
The other half of the MOD-3 system is the MOD-3 Monocular Adapter. This adapts an Optical Pod into a full function monocular. It has the same circuitry as the Binocular Bridge which means you have a flood IR LED, IR “on” indicator, and low battery indicator. It uses the 3V lithium battery as well. It also accepts the IR Spot/Flood adapters like the PVS-7 goggles use.
Like the Binocular Bridge, the Monocular Adapter releases the Optical pod with the press of one finger, allowing instant changeover from monocular to binocular. The monocular housing is waterproof and has a side mount like a PVS-14, allowing you to use it as you would any other monocular with head and weapon mounts. The monocular is 75 grams lighter than a PVS-14.
All MOD3 kits come complete with two full assembled Optic Pods with MILSPEC PVS-14 Objective and Eye Piece Lenses, One Binocular Bridge, and two Monocular Adapters. The Binocular bridge will attach to any dovetail night vision mount interface while the monocular adapters simply require the addition of any PVS-14 J-Arm to attach to a helmet mount.
