Code 4 Defense is proud to announce the GEN 2 NVB-58 (Night Vision Bridge – 58° field of view). The NVB-58 was designed as a simple compact PVS-14 bridge that gives the user a fixed 58° field of view. This is a nearly 50% increase over the standard 40° field of view offered by other dual tube systems. Made with the latest additive manufacturing processes, the NVB-58 offers the end user with a lightweight, durable design.
Unlike other wide field of view, or “panoramic” bridge options on the market, the NVB-58 gets its field of view from a fixed angle in the attachment arms of the PVS-14s. This offers several benefits over creating an angle in the bridge of the device. First, a fixed angle requires very little in the way of adjustment for the end user. Simply place the device into your field of view, and you are good to go. This also means the device doesn’t suffer as much when accidently bumped against objects. The fixed angle also means that when you articulate the device out of your field of view, it becomes parallel with the mount, reducing the risk of snags. When you stow the unit, the fixed angle tilts the front of the PVS-14 towards the centerline of your helmet to further reduce the chance of snags while limiting the overall profile for vehicle born operations.
In addition to the fixed field of view arms, the NVB-58 comes with an additional set of parallel arms. This allows the user to either mount both PVS-14s in a more traditional parallel configuration, or mount a single PVS-14 in case of unit failure.
The NVB-58 does not require a tool for installation or adjustments. In order to change tension on the arms of the bridge, simply tighten the thumb screws. In addition, there are thumb screws used to attach the PVS-14s to the bridge. This means you don’t have to worry about carrying a separate tool with you in the field to make minor adjustments.
The NVB-58 utilizes a standard dovetail mount which works with most industry standard helmet attachments. In the rear of the bridge is a place to attach bungee cords from either side of the helmet.
