About the Pulsar PL78021

The Pulsar Recon 550 is one of the most compact and ergonomic digital night vision devices available in the market.

The Recon 550 features high light gathering capacity (F/d = 1.0). Combined with large magnification, this ensures one of the best viewing distances among budget NV devices.

The Recon 550 is outfitted with a jack enabling connection of peripheral equipment; it functions both in video out mode and video in mode. Video out mode allows video recording without use of adaptors and camcorders or cameras; video in mode can be employed to transmit image via radio channel from remote cameras to Recon's display.

The built-in IR illuminator (805 nm wavelength is optimal for night vision) permits the device to operate in complete darkness. Optionally you may use with the Recon additional, more powerful infrared illuminators including "invisible" version (940 nm). The Recon has a specially design mount combining Weaver and 1/4" standards to affix various accessories. The Recon 550 has four working modes of the display - black and white, green (regular color for NV), red (reduces eye strain) and enhanced contrast mode.
