WILCOX MODULAR POWER TRACK
Wilcox Industries designs some of the most sophisticated and user-centric night vision helmet mount systems available. The first reaction people tend to have is to balk at the price tag. Sure, it is expensive, but like everything: you get what you pay for. Wilcox helmet mounts are, literally, works of engineering art. They are designed with direct input from US Warfighters at the very tip of the sharp stick. These designs are refined until they reach perfection and are then masterfully crafted in Wilcox’s state-of-the-art manufacturing facility.
The Wilcox Modular Power Track mounts to a variety of fielded ballistic and non-ballistic helmets. It is a component of several Wilcox helmet systems that require remote power such as the MHRS and 4949/5050 NVG Interface Systems. The track uses a patented ratcheting cinch mechanism and front hook to secure to the Wilcox L3-series of shrouds and the L4 MHRS Dashboard. A rear hook assembly attaches to the back of the helmet shell.
Three power receptacles accept modular power units and other accessories like IFF devices and recording modules by means of a dove-tail interface. Power is transferred through the track to the dashboard or NVG device.
The Modular Power Track is a specialty piece of equipment, proprietary to Wilcox devices. The cinch mechanism is incredibly well-designed and locks the unit very securely to the helmet- no worries of it accidentally being bumped loose during rigorous activity. In fact, after tightening, the release lever actually becomes more difficult to actuate.
