Firefield N-Vader 3-9x Digital Night Vision Monocular Manual (FF18066)
To install, locate the battery cover (9). Slide the cover out. The cap will release and flip open. Insert four AA batteries into the compartment so that polarity of the battery matches the markings inside the compartment. Replace the battery cover. Battery charge level is identified in the upper right corner of the display. Note: Rechargeable batteries can be used with this device.
To activate the device, press the on/off button (1). While looking through the device, the “Firefield” splash screen will appear three seconds after pressing the on button. After another three seconds, the device will begin operating in the night vision mode. To turn the unit off, press the on/off button once more. Note: After 5 minutes of no button operation the unit will notify the user the unit will turn off. To continue operation, press any button.
To focus the device, locate an object 10 to 20 yards away. Rotate the eyepiece (8) until you clearly see the display screen. Next, rotate the objective lens (3) until the image of the object is sharp and crisp. When the viewing distance changes, the objective lens only needs to be rotated.
Day/Night Vision Mode and IR Power:
Day/Night Vision mode and the InfraRed illuminator power are controlled by the IR control (5). Night Vision mode is equipped with two IR power settings: high (1 watt) and low (500mw). The current IR power setting is identified in the lower right corner of the display. A full circle represents high power. A checkered circle represents low power. Press the IR control (5) once to switch from high to low power. To switch from night vision mode to day vision mode, press the IR control once more. The display will change from black and white to color, the IR illuminator will automatically turn off, and the frame per second (fps) will increase to 30 fps. Note: A small click will be heard when activating and deactivating the day vision mode. This is normal and is not a defect. This click is an internal mechanism designed to enhance color imaging for daytime viewing.
To increase the brightness of the image and the nighttime viewing distance, the gain control button (6) should be used. Consecutively pressing the gain control will decrease the frames per second from 25 fps,
to 15 fps, to 8 fps. The current fps setting is identified in the lower left corner of the display. To achieve maximum viewing distance, 8 fps should be used.
To digitally increase the magnification of the device, press the digital zoom button (7). Consecutively pressing the digital zoom will digitally increase the magnification from 3x, to 6x, to 9x magnification. The current magnification is identified in the upper left corner of the display.
To attach the device to an external viewing monitor, plug in a composite video cable into the video output plug (2) on the side of the device. Once plugged in, the device will automatically send the video feed to the external device.
