Custom Night Visions offers the AB Night Vision ARNVG with the following tube options:
- L3Harris 20UA Filmless White Phosphor – Aviation Spec Supergain
- L3Harris 20UA Filmless White Phosphor – Aviation Spec
- Elbit White Phosphor XLSH
- Elbit White Phosphor PH 2376+ FOM
- Photonis Echo White Phosphor
**PLEASE SPECIFY IF YOU WANT BLACK OR FDE HOUSING**
We offer L3Harris Filmless White tubes in Handpicked 20UA and 20 UA Supergain. 20UA tubes will have a typical FOM of 2200-2600 with an EBI of 0.5 to 2.0 and 20UA Supergain will have a typical FOM of 1800-2200 with an EBI of 0.2 to 0.5.
SuperGain Filmless White Phosphor image intensifier tubes increase the Luminance Gain (Gain) specification for image intensifier tubes from the standard 40,000-80,000 fL/fc to between 100,000-120,000 fL/fc. This greatly increases the image intensifier’s ability to amplify and collect light, resulting in a noticeably brighter image with increased low light performance and extending operational envelope and ability to see into dark areas.
Handpicked Option – This is our most popular way of ordering night vision. We maintain a massive inventory of 500+ image intensifier tubes not listed on the website. We will contact you (typically within 24-48 hours of placing your order) with pictures and specs of tubes we select to ask for your approval. If you have preferences on certain specs (ie: SNR, EBI etc…) please include those in your order notes and we will do our best to meet your goal. After customer tube approval the night vision unit will be ready to ship within 1 to 3 business days.

The RNVG-A, also known as ARNVG, (Articulating Ruggedized Night Vision Goggle) is an extremely tough, full featured night vision binocular. The housing is billet machined from aircraft grade aluminum and designed to handle challenging real-world environments. During drop testing the housings far exceeded military requirements of MIL-STD-810H drop testing, surviving falls onto bare concrete from heights beyond what lenses and image intensifiers can handle.
The RNVG-A design includes push button switches for power and an Infrared Illuminator. The IR illuminator button is guarded by a fence with distinctive contours to prevent inadvertently activating the IR illuminator. Indicators in the viewing area alert the user if the IR illuminator is on, or if the unit senses a low battery condition. The unit is powered by either an onboard 123 battery or auxiliary power from a battery pack using a 4 pin LEMO style connector.
AB Night Vision RNVG-A optics feature a full range of adjustments. The mil-spec objectives allow the user to focus between 9.8 inches and infinity, while the mil-spec eyepieces offer a diopter adjustment range of -6 to +2. The articulating design allows the user to quickly adjust for an Interpupillary Distance from 47mm to over 80mm.
Each optical pod can be rotated up out of the users view as desired, freeing one or both eyes for natural sight as conditions demand. When the goggle is helmet mounted and in the stowed position, the optical pods can be folded back flat against the helmet to minimize neck strain and better protect the goggle, and the user, from impacting overhead objects. The optical pods automatically turn off when articulated up. This feature prevents illumination on your helmet when one side is articulated up and ensures that the image intensifiers are ‘off’ in the stowed position with the optical pods folded back against the helmet. The force required to swing the optical pods is user adjustable using a coin.
The goggle is available in Flat Black and Flat Dark Earth. The components of the binocular are media blasted to give a non-reflective matte finish, then black anodized for durability. For the FDE option, Cerakote, a proven firearms finish, is applied over the anodizing to give a tough, attractive finish.
