See The New TNVC ANVS to BNVD Cable Adapter at SHOT Show 2020 Booth #6502

Sands Expo Center, Las Vegas, Nevada — January 16, 2020

Tactical Night Vision Company (TNVC) is excited to introduce the new TNVC ANVS to BNVD Cable Adaptor at the 2020 NSSF SHOT Show Booth #6502. The TNVC ANVS to BNVD Cable Adapter (TNVC-ABCA) allows end users to power night vision devices equipped with a BNVS-style external power connection port such as the L3Harris BNVD-family (AN/PVS-31A, BNVD-1531) or GPNVG using ANVS remote battery packs (LPBP) or other power supplies using the Legacy LEMO connector.

As issued, Legacy ANVS power supplies are not compatible with the BNVS-style connection used on many next generation night vision devices, frustrating users with large numbers of Legacy power supplies already in inventory that cannot be used with their night vision devices. Moreover, the cost of OEM BNVS-style power supplies is often prohibitive if power supplies or cables are lost or damaged or spares are needed.

While many night vision devices have onboard battery capabilities, many end users prefer the extended battery life offered by using external power supplies with their night vision devices, especially in colder weather, while devices such as the GPNVG-18 have no onboard battery capabilities. Furthermore, moving the power supply to the back of the helmet in an external power supply can help to counterweight night vision devices mounted on the front of the helmet, improving user comfort and reducing neck strain and fatigue.

The TNVC-ABCA is also compatible with ruggedized external battery packs such as the LPBP-Ground Optimized (also available from TNVC), which allow end user to use either AA or CR123A batteries, giving them greater flexibility for powering their devices with readily available power cells, and at a much lower cost than the OEM external power supplies.

The TNVC-ABCA was developed in partnership with the OE manufacturer of the BNVS power connector, and features a durable, shielded cable and a rubberized BNVS connector housing and uses authentic OEM connectors rather than aftermarket components. The TNVC-ABCA is available in both 6” and 8” cable lengths to accommodate a wide range of helmet mounting and cable routing configurations (custom cable lengths available via special order).

The TNVC ANVS to BNVS Cable Adapter will retail for $224.95, or with the AB Night Vision LPBP-GO and TNVC Mohawk MK 2 Gen. 2 counterweight/battery pack pouch system for $549.95. Available late-Q1 2020.
