Product Information

The ATN PS22 is an attachment for a Daytime Riflescopes with 1x Magnification that converts a scope into a high-quality night vision weapon sight. The ATN PS22 System mounts in front of a Daytime Scope. Re-zeroing of the scope is not required. The ATN PS22 comes standard with 7/8" weaver mount. The IR Illuminator can be mounted onto the optional Picatinny Rail. This ingenious setup allows the shooter to go from day to night in less than 30 seconds without tools, without changes in eye relief and remain zeroed all around the clock. The ATN PS22 is a complex optical-electronic system. The device contains an image intensifier tube assembly with an integrated high-voltage power source and three volt battery housing. The PS22 is covered by a 2-year factory warranty.

A night vision device works by taking existing light, whether infra-red, moonlight or starlight, and changing it into visible light. This visible light is amplified to the point where it may be viewed in the device's eyepiece. The process, where the existing light (made up of photons) moves through a photocathode tube, changes to electrons that are electro-chemically amplified and then driven against a phosphorus screen to return them to visible light, gives the final image a green hue. Night vision devices are referred to by what "Generation" they are. Each generation has a different type of intensifier tube.

1st Generation amplifies light several thousand times. The image will generally be sharp in the center and slightly blurry around the edges, allowing wildlife observation or for general security use. A 1st generation will hum when on, it may continue to glow for some time after it is turned off, but is the least expensive type of night vision device.
  • Recognition of a deer on a cloudy night is possible at 75 yards using a 1st generation unit.

    2nd Generation has an extra process because a micro-channel plate is directly behind the photocathode tube and amplifies the light many times more than a 1st generation. The image is sharper and brighter.
  • Recognition of a deer on a cloudy night is possible at 100 yards using a 2nd generation unit.

    CGT IIT Generation type of Image Intensifier tubes are engineered for significantly enhanced performance over current 2nd generation IITs. The CGT IIT is a Multi-Alkali compact 18mm format MCP Image Intensifier. Highlights of the CGT specifications are typical SNR of 16-22 and resolution of 45-54 lp/mm. CGT IITs are sensitive in a wide spectral band and thus provide good contrast in all scene circumstances.

    HPT IIT Generation tubes are an upgrade of the CGT Generation tube. They are a Multi-Alkali compact 18mm format MCP Image Intensifier. The HPT tube increases sensitivity, resolution, Signal-to-Noise Ratio (SNR), and the Modulation Transfer Function (MTF). These improvements produce an exceptional image clarity and brightness. Most HPT specifications typically are equivalent to standard 3rd generation. Highlights of the HPT specifications are the typical SNR of 22 and resolution of 64 lp/mm.

    3rd Generation has a chemical added to t
