Hopefully someone can help me ID this tube from a PVS-7 that I purchased last month. I was told it is a gen 3, but it has no markings to indicate which gen it is. The outside covering is transparent. I have poor hearing as well as tinnitus, so I cannot hear if it whines to determine if it is autogated or not (I cannot hear this any of my PVS-14s either, units which are definitely autogated). The display has the appearance of the tube being P-43. It performs very well and has no blems or black dots in any zones. Thanks for any help you can provide.

I'm trying to source a replacement for this, it's dead.  It's from a PVS-11, I think it's the same size as an mx-9916, but no leads anywhere, just contacts on the side.  I may try sleeving a 10160 per a suggestion in another thread, but if anyone could tell me any more about this unit I'd greatly appreciate it!!

The PVS-11 was a gen II MX9916 and the PVS-11A was a gen III fat ANVIS tube, yours looks like a gen III because of the contacts, post a pic of the input window of the tube, it should look just like a PVS-14 tube. If it is a gen II MX9916, there is a chance an MX10160 wont work because of the focal plane distance of the objective lens(PVS-5C type lens)

That is a Gen II tube, the photocathode looks good, it may just have a bad power supply. Have you tried applying 3V to the contacts? If it`s dead, @dts-blackout25 might be able to help you, He`s done a lot of work on MX9916 tubes.

That’s a mil spec L3 Omni VIII mx11769. Those are very high Performance tubes, probably 1800+ FOM. It’s got the label removed for pretty obvious reasons, I won’t ask where it came from. I see the o ring gasket is missing from the battery housing, which is another tell as to its origin

@tlandoe07

Thanks!

Can you clue me in as to how you arrived at the conclusion that this is an OMNI VIII?

I picked it up on EE for $1800. Seller stated he was 2nd owner and that he didn’t know any specifics about the tube (as he had never opened it up).

Before I took it apart, it had a peppering of about 12-15 tiny specs that were only barely visible against a while wall. Upon re-assembly, most of the specs are gone but now I introduced a “spot” at about 12:30. I need to take it apart again and reassemble in a clean room, using compressed air to blow out any remaining particles.

The design of the tube cap and the pigtail are what make me say Omni VIII. That’s a removable pigtail you can actually pop it out and run it without the pigtail if you needed to.

The newer top cover plates have that notch that allows for this. Previous L3 tubes still had snap-in pigtails but they had a cover plate that sealed the entire top of the power supply, including the pigtail.

As for the specks, you probably accidentally introduced debris when you opened it up

@PFran42
@tlandoe07

Yes it is a very late tube, could still be omni 7. The pigtail is dated 15 week of 2009

Yes missing label is a bad sign.

also look at the first page of the thread, his notes second to last one in red AEO l3 module l3 pigtail

Thanks, I did some more cross referencing and that's what I got too. Both are autogated. I can't hear any tube whine since my tinnitus is so bad, but had the wife verify the tubes were in fact whining.

FYI I created an excel spreadsheet of the various tubes from the available data from CJHawks website and the one here. If anyone wants a copy just send me an IM with your email.

the nsn was assigned jan 29 2003, so that does put it in omni 6. from the link below the army "built" these tubes as well, under another part number. as you know the tube was made in 09

I think I found the same USMC reference you did, has a contract date of 9-18-2007, which is a omni 7 date. But it is a clip on, not a pvs14 contract with insight.

I am wondering if the tube is omni 7 but a weapon grade tube, with a different contractor number for assembly into a clip on.

4590 is a auto gated mx11769, even under the current Omni VIII mil spec that’s the NSN. But the CAD date is the end of 2009. I think it’s most likely an omni VII equivalent.

You might be onto something with the clip on thing. Tested the tube today, it looks great in the test housing.Attachment Attached File

Seen those before being sold as Photonis tubes. The output fiber coupler looks very much like Photonis. Have no evidence yet to doubt that. Ones I've seen were very nice Gen 2 tubes.

They were sold to me as Photonis. The more photos I see of Photonis tubes, the less sure I am that these are but I could be wrong.

Photonis makes a lot of tubes and has done so over many years. Ones I had worked with no issues and I was satisfied regardless of the origin. Allegedly Photonis sold Russia an entire Gen 2 tube production line. Have not seen any up close pics of Harder Digital tubes so can't say.

That's good to know. I'm satisfied with these tubes and they are damn good, regardless of manufacturer.

Could try asking NGI. The tube in their Gen 2 PVS-14 is physically identical with the exception of having a pigtail. Same SN format and I think it was also in the ~4000 range.

Here's an odd one, it's a Litton PVS-7D, tube is Litton Electro-Optical Systems MX-10130D which would have to be early, so I'm guessing Omni IV or V, but I can't find any info on Litton PVS-7s other than A or C models.  Can anyone confirm Omni / gating, or have any more info on Litton making -7Ds?

I just ordered a set of PVS-7 and they haven't arrived yet.

Tube is supposed to be:

80063-A3297290
Cage: 55311
MX10130D/UV
NSN: 5855-01-504-4589
Contr No:
W9124Q-05-D-0823
CAD: 09/32

I've read conflicting info.

Some sat Omni 4/5
Others say Omni 7
Some say no autogate
Others say autogate.

Thanks

Just got it in.

Sold as not autogated, but it definitely is.

Short whine when startup then quiet as described for L3 tubes online.

One battery with spacer causes clicking noise.  Don't see strobing (or anything) in the viewfinder.

Slight visible strobing when looking out my window into brighter areas at night.

Definitely NOT Omni level 4-5 as shown on the tube list.
