CTRL® eyewear changes from light to dark tint in less than 0.1second. No lens change needed.
Aberdeen, NC– (May 2019) Quantico Tactical® is proud to announce that e-Tint, LLC will be exhibiting with them at the 2019 Special Operations Forces Industry Conference (SOFIC), booth #1811. E-Tint’s CTRL®line is the ONLYactively tinting eye protection APPROVED on the APEL.
CTRL®is the first-ever battlefield-ready, electronically controllable eyewear – now approved for the Army’s Authorized Protective Eyewear List (APEL). Combining ballistic lenses with e-Tint’s Electronic Tint-on-DemandTMtechnology, CTRL®is designed to enhance tactical capability and provide protection by enabling automatic switching when lighting conditions shift (for example, moving from outdoor sunshine into a dark building). By switching tint manually (on/off button) or automatically (hands-free) to adjust to any environment instantly (0.1 sec), soldiers are not required to remove their sunglasses, and their eyes remain protected at all times.
Originally developed for strategic military application in partnership with the Air Force, Navy, and Army, CTRL®eyewear offers speed and control: instant tine change with a simple press of a button, or in a hands-free mode that can be adjusted to users’ preference. With a built-in light sensor which can be programmed to exact needs, these goggles and spectacles are the Next Gen solutions for today’s warriors to eliminate the need to lift their goggle or spectacle, or mechanically change the lens, which leaves eyes unprotected in dangerous, fast-paced situations.
Using expertise in liquid crystal photonics and optics, e-Tint’s early award-winning light-reactive visors for the United States Air Force was tailored to produce eyewear that meets or exceeds the Army’s exacting MIL Spec standards, including: stringent ballistic and impact requirements ANSI z87.1 for use in military and tactical operations; high quality (ANSI z80.3) optics; anti-fog and 100% UV blocking. Equipped with a ‘fail-safe’ mechanism to ensure your safety – in the event of a loss of power, the lens will automatically go clear.
Other features include: adjustable features (nose piece, strap, arms) to allow for a comfortable and customized fit, threshold adjustment to enable tailoring of the point at which system tints interchangeable lenses (e-Tint and clear) for greater flexibility, and an optional prescription lens mount.
