SIONYX Out-Of-Band Illuminators Enhance OPSIN’s Digital Night Vision Capabilities

The new line operates at 1050nm, allowing for complete covertness during critical missions

BEVERLY, Mass. (March 19, 2024) – SIONYX has defined itself as a leader in advancing the night vision industry, allowing professionals and outdoorsmen to do more in moonless starlight conditions. This spring, SIONYX is poised to introduce a line of 1050nm infrared illuminators designed to complement and enhance the capabilities of OPSIN, SIONYX’s helmet-mounted digital night vision monocular. Out-of-band illuminators represent a technological leap forward, ensuring optimal performance in low-light conditions while maintaining full covert operations. The SIONYX illuminators can be utilized in handheld, helmet-mounted, and weapon-mounted applications to adapt to any mission requirements.

OPSIN offers clear digital advantages over its analog counterparts. These advantages encompass color imaging, an edge-to-edge, informational heads-up display, video streaming and recording with metadata, and the option to update the device as SIONYX advances its technology and capabilities. OPSIN’s advanced low-light imaging enhances situational awareness and keeps operators safe by allowing them to see further into the infrared spectrum with an expanded field of view. In addition to recent firmware updates, the illuminators round out the innovative OPSIN series of night vision products.

OPSIN provides an invaluable capability to users by perceiving out-of-band illuminators and lasers up to 1200nm, which most traditional night vision systems cannot detect. Pairing OPSIN with the new SIONYX 1050nm illuminators maintains covertness during critical missions in ultra-low-light or completely dark environments – meaning OPSIN users can see their targets while remaining undetected by traditional I2 devices.

Like many SIONYX products, the recoil-rated illuminators come built for the toughest environments, featuring aircraft aluminum alloy, a hard anodized finish, a MIL-STD drop rate of >2m, and an IP67 water and dustproof rating. Built-in USB-C charging eliminates the need for external charging accessories. The focusable front lens allows flood-to-narrow beam operations, and the adjustable brightness intensity allows the user to fully illuminate their image while avoiding scene wash-out.

The 4-1 illuminator’s built-in adjustable payloads keep the LED positioned in the optical center, providing focused, accurate illumination with no parallax shift. Use white light for active illumination and maximum visibility; red light provides illumination with minimal impact to natural night vision; or quickly switch to 940nm and 1050nm IR illumination with a simple rotation of the selector knob. The compact helmet-mounted model connects to any standard Picatinny rail mount for always-available, hands-free 1050nm IR illumination.

The new SIONYX illuminators can be found at and through the SIONYX authorized dealer network. For more information about OPSIN and the illuminators, please click here.

    Just IP67 for 3 digits.
    No thank you – every 2 digit flashlight got IP68 rating.
