We applied the latest technology to the XR5™, technology that enables the user to detect more details during operations.

The prominent feature on the XR5™ is the integrated Auto-Gated power supply, facilitating operations under dynamic lighting conditions. Auto-Gating constantly operates to improve the quality of the image, not only during day-night-day transitions, but also under dynamic lighting conditions, such as military operations in urban terrain which define many of today's missions.

Our XR5™ Image Intensifier represents the new standard for night vision and is available in a variety of inverting and non-inverting 18 mm formats (form - fit - function) for existing and new optical systems.

Options available

ONYX - black & white vision

onyxONYX is the optional black and white night vision of Photonis.
Studies show that night-time scenes appear remarkably more natural in B&W versus the usual green. Photonis offers B&W night vision for those who want to have a natural vision at night. B&W provides clearer information about the contrast, shapes and shadows.
