The Panther NVG-P7 is a lightweight, compact, military grade night vision goggle. The Panther NVG-P7 is equipped with an Automatic Brightness Control (ABC), which automatically adjusts the brightness of the 12 tube to deliver superior image quality resolution under changing light conditions. The Panther NVG-P7 comes standard with a built-in IR illuminator that allows the user to operate in total darkness. The Panther NVG-P7 also has an excessive-light cut-off feature that protects the I2 tube from bright light sources, and a flip-up shut-off feature when used with the optional helmet mount assembly. The NVG-P7 is equipped with two LED indicators: yellow to indicate low battery, and red to alert the operator that the IR illuminator is on. Both are conveniently displayed on the eyepiece screen.
