The patented Graflex Video Boresight Camera System (BCA) is designed to convert any traditional Graflex Boresight Telescope to a video assisted system. Among the advantages of our video boresight system includes the fact our standard optical telescope remains fully intact. Secondly, the inherent accuracy of the optical telescope remains unchanged. Parallax is eliminated regardless of the target distance. The standard optical telescope/boresight system remains fully operational given a camera failure.

The Graflex Video Boresight system is very simple to use. The user identifies the mechanical centerline axis of the gun tube according to the standard boresight user’s manual. The camera is then applied to telescope eyepiece where the image is then transferred to a display. The user will then collimate the gun tube with the gunner’s sight. In general, the Graflex Boresight Camera (PN BCA-1001) is used to capture the image (in the form of a video stream) as seen through any Graflex boresight telescope. The camera simply slips over the telescope eyepiece providing a crisp, clean image without any degradation of accuracy nor any degree of parallax. The imagery may then be fed to our BCA-1002 Control Box (with LCD) or any other display including that integral to the Fire Control System (FCS).

Components include the BCA-1001 Camera, the BCA-1002 Control Box (with LCD), cables, and ancillary tools. The BCA-1002 Control Box is fully self-contained including an auto-switching LCD and rechargeable battery pack. The BCA-1001 Camera may be used independent of the Control Box via a direct interface with the FCS LCD (at the auxiliary video input) additionally drawing (camera) power from the vehicle.

Note 1:  Standard video/power camera cable for BCA-1001 is 33 FT, if longer cable is required or ifmetric length is desired the PN shall be derived as follows: BCA-1001-CBL-50 for 50 foot cable, for 10 meter length PN = BCA-1001-CBL-10M. Video/Camera Cable must be ordered separate from BCA-1001-X Camera.
Note 2: The current revision (Rev 3 dated 3/1/2013) of the BCA Camera Assembly replacement cableincludes AMP circular connectors at the camera body and mating connectors on both ends ofcable.
Note 3: Control boxes include the DC power cable meant to draw power from the vehicle directly tothe control box (superceding the AC power cable and ACDC converter).
Note 4: Always indicate EU or US if AC power is to be utilized, for example, BCA-1002-NVC-US andprong style. 
Note 5:  Standard cable is XXX FT, if custom length is desire please add -"Number of Feet or Meters".For example, BCA-VPC-10 or 10M = 10 Feet or "M", 10 Meters.
Note 6:  Add "N" after BCA-1001-"N" for nitrogen filled. Nitrogen filled camera includes BCA-1001-NFVT.
