Ludicrous Lumens 5” SCREEN-HD MP NV system instructions
Ludicrous Lumens 5” SCREEN-HD MP NV system
Fitting device to your day scope.
The NV System supplied with 4 x spacers , depending on your scopes ocular size a spacer may or may not be required.
Add a few wraps of electrical tape to the scopes ocular at a minimum as this will dramatically increase the grip/help protect your scopes finish.
If you do have to use one of the supplied spacers again choose a spacer that allows a wrap of tape under the spacer & ON the spacer, again this will really help with grip & your spacer can stay affixed ready for next time.
When you have decide where on the main body of your scope you are going to be attaching the screen/power box please add a wrap of electrical tape as above to preserve your scopes finish & aid grip.(use provided spacer with 25mm main tubes)
SWITCHING ON YOUR DEVICE
Switching on your device will require the rocker switch to be turned to the “1
Switching off is the reverse of above (please ensure to switch off the toggle switch as damage to the battery could incur over time if left “on” for long periods).
FOCUSING THE CAMERA TO YOUR SCOPES CROSSHAIR
units built before the 3/3/2017 will need the camera to be removed for lens focusing
The lens on your NV system is under sprung tension, if your crosshair is not sharp & clearly in focus you can make minor adjustments by turning the cameras lens & holding behind your scope to assess if the crosshair focus is getting better or worse. (If you cannot do this with your fingers a pair of pliers with some protective tape on them to protect the camera lens works well).
Minor adjustment to crosshair focus can also be made by turning your scopes diopter adjuster (adjusting ring usually closest your eye).
CHARGING YOUR DEVICE
The 12v battery that powers the camera & screen requires the 5.5MM pin charger to be connected (Led charge status indicator goes from Red – Green when fully charged).
PLEASE NOTE THIS DEVICE CONTAINS POTENTIALLY DANGEROUS LI-ION BATTERIES & MUST NEVER BE LEFT CHARGING UNATTENDED OR OVERNIGHT.
FIRST USE IN THE FIELD
When you’re happy you have the device fitted correctly & a nice clear crosshair some adjustment of the camera in the field at night with the IR device you are going to be using is recommended.
Prior to your first trip out it’s a good idea to remove the 3 x self tapping screws + the cover at the back of the camera housing, this will give access to the camera & the joystick controls.
ADJUSTING THE CAMERA
Pressing the joystick button will bring up the camera menu. The only settings you will need to adjust are:
- Page 1 of camera menu
- High luminance/Brightness numbered 1-33
- Low luminance/Brightness 25-1
- When finished go to next page of save/exit the cameras menu
Adjust these settings until you get the best possible image with your focused IR device.
The 5” NV system allows a DVR recorder to be attached via the RCA video out connector on the side of the monitor box.
Access to the monitors brightness & contrast settings are available by removing the 4x 2mm hex screws on the monitor housings back panel.(3x internal buttons)
Please note IR & scope choice will make a HUGE difference to your attainable performance.
