Short range strike scope mounted night vision system
The NiteSite VIPER™ is a patented night vision system for hunting in zero light.
It converts your day scope (there’s no need to remove it) into a powerful night vision system that is quick and simple to set up. It utilizes infrared in a unique way making it more affordable, reliable and user-friendly than traditional light amplification technologies.
The VIPER™ is for the hunter who wants a product without limitations.
Quick and Easy to fit any day scope!
The true beauty of a NiteSite is that it converts any day scope (there’s no need to remove it) into a powerful night vision system that is quick and simple to set up.
Indeed, from opening the carry case to hunt ready status takes just 60 seconds once you are familiar with the setup.
All NiteSites are equipped with adaptable fittings that enable mounting onto virtually any make and size of scope and there is no need to re-zero or adjust your scope in any way. Just mount the unit, switch on and you’re ready to shoot.
Maximum versatility and advantage for the night hunter
The VIPER™ is the perfect night vision unit for any hunter, delivering high quality, clear night vision through any day vision rifle scope. It achieves this using three powerful infrared illuminators (invisible to to people and animals) to literally illuminate the target area immediately in front of where the rifle scope is aiming, allowing clear target identification up to 110 Yards away.
The infrared image is then captured through the rifle scope by a compact video recording unit attached to the scope’s eyepiece and then played back live to the hunter via the unit’s integral 3.5 inch dimmable LCD screen.
Understanding the components of a NiteSite
All NiteSite scope mounted models operate on the same basic principle with variations to performance and specification across the range. This infographic will help you to understand what each component of a NiteSite does,how fits into the system and what is specific to this model.
A. IR Illuminator module
The scope mounted module houses three powerful (IR) illuminator delivering a range of up to 110 Yards. An ergonomic ‘dimming’ knob on top of the unit allows accurate control of the illumination power to reduce flare for closer range targeting. The hooded front has an inset protective lens cover.
B. LCD dimmable viewing screen
Your IR illuminated targets are viewed through a high-resolution 3.5 inch LCD screen that delivers a clear black and white image of the view through the rifle scope.
C. Anti-recoil clamp
This removable plastic sleeve connects to the top of the scope clamp and ensures that the illuminator module stays firmly in the ‘T’ slot even during the most powerful recoil actions.
D. Scope clamp
The scope clamp is used to attach the illuminator module to the rifle scope body tube. Its flexible construction allows easy clip on attachment to the scope.
E. Scope sleeve
A rubber sleeve provides a secure, stable connection from the scope’s ocular to the camera unit. The heavy-duty rubber construction is flexible enough to stretch over most rifle scope eyepieces.
F. IR camera module with integral recording and external focusing
The rugged module houses an infrared (IR) frequency camera with audio and video (AV) output allowing external connection to a recording device via a 3.5mm four pin socket. A large push button on/off switch is located on the rear face of the module for easy night operation.
G1. 2 or 4Ah scope mounted lithium-ion battery
The 4Ah battery provides up to 4 hours full IR, 10 hours no IR operating time. It has an adjustable Velcro strap for easy fastening to your rifle scope. The 2Ah lithium-ion polymer scope mounted battery provides up to 3.5 hours full IR, 5 hours no IR operating time.
G2. 6Ah stock mounted lithium-ion battery and stock pouch
The stock mounted 6Ah lithium-ion polymer scope mounted battery provides up to 3.5 hours full IR operating time and is housed in a separate battery pouch. The sturdy weather resistant pouch is attached to either side of the rifle stock with a wide elastic belt and Velcro fasteners.
