The IR-75 IR illuminator is a compact, lightweight low to mid-range device. The IR-75 features a focusable beam and infinitely variable power output of 75mW, controlled with the on/off switch located at the back of the device.
IR illuminators mount easily on night vision or CCD devices or can be hand-held. The IR-75 is ideal for extreme low light conditions, especially indoors and in close quarters where higher powered IR lights may create significant “hot spots” or overexposure within the image. The IR-75 significantly extends capabilities of weapon sights, observation devices, and photographic equipment.
The performance of any night vision or low-light CCD device is dependent on ambient light, magnification, atmospheric transparency, and contrast between the target and its background. Adding the right IR Illuminator can significantly enhance visual acuity and extend detection ranges.
Capabilities of IR Illuminators are a function of ambient conditions, power and wavelength. Effective range is a function of power and wavelength. Higher power and shorter wavelengths result in longer ranges.
Additionally, IR sources above 940nm are virtually invisible to the naked eye, while shorter-wavelength sources emit a visible, point-of-origin signature what viewed from the front.
