PolyVision NVIS Filters for SMD Type LEDs

NVG Compatible & NVIS Compliant Optical Filters

  • NVG display compliance per MIL-L-85762A and MIL-STD-3009
  • Monolithic construction – filtered NVIS light from both top and side walls
  • Dimensions are typical and may vary depending on color, design, and application requirements
  • Custom dimensioned filters and rapid prototyping are our specialty – please contact Lumitron with your requirements

  1. Use the Typical Dimensions Tables (mm or inches) to match SMD LED package size.
  2. Note that dimensions are reference only and may change depending on customer application.
  3. Use the Color Table to select the color code and corresponding LED color.
  4. Example: L-65196-0603-xxx is an NVIS Green A Optical Filter Cap for Cool White 0603 Package SMD LEDs.
  5. NOTE: Fitting filter caps onto SMD LEDs correctly is critical. Because SMD LED spacing and solder buildup on populated PCBs can vary greatly, Lumitron offers custom design services to insure that our filter caps work well on all customer applications. The part number suffix -xxx is therefore left open to allow a three digit code that locks in custom dimensions to meet customer-specific fit requirements.


  1. Monolithic Construction of NVIS filter.
  2. Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) Sensitive.
  3. Soldering recommended prior to filter installation.
  4. Green LEDs filtered for NVIS Green A using L-65330-xxxx-xxx filters have u’ and v’ chromaticity values that are near the upper left limit of the color radius per MIL-STD-3009. Due to variations in the LED manufacturing process and drive currents, the green color may shift slightly beyond the NVIS Green A color limit. This will have no effect on compliance to NVIS Radiance.
  5. NVIS PolyVision Optical Filters are subject to the following thermal constraints: Intermittent Use Temperature 190°C. Extended Use Temperature 120°C.
  6. Stray unfiltered light emitting from the bottom of the LED can cause IR leakage. Potting may be required to light-seal the assembly. IR Opaque Light baffles are now available to facilitate this process.
