Infrared lamp for night vision devices (NVD)
Radiation power 2050 mW ... This is 8-15 times more powerful than those built into most night vision devices and 4-6 times more industrial-made remote lights.
Do not confuse radiation power (roughly speaking, brightness) and electrical power. Often, infrared lights indicate the power in watts, but this indicator only indicates what current the diode consumes and does not in any way characterize the real efficiency of an infrared flashlight. The current consumption of our diodes is 1.5A, but in the world market there are several dozen diodes with such a consumption current that are very different both in their efficiency and constructive (diode size, beam spreading angle). The compatibility of the diode and the body of the flashlight (size and shape of the lens, the distance from the lens to the diode) is a very important aspect for achieving the maximum efficiency of the infrared flashlight and its long-term performance. We attach great importance to the selection of components.
Wavelength radiation 940 nm Is a range invisible to humans and animals. Lighting range in complete darkness 200-1000 m (depends on the quality of the optical sight); operating time from one 18650 battery (3400 ma) about 3 hours. This infrared light can be used only with night vision devices - Generation III image intensifier and digital devices.
The beam spot is round, and due to the aspherical lens evenly illuminates the entire field of view of the night vision device. This is the main advantage of a LED IR flashlight over a laser one. In a laser infrared flashlight, the beam spot is usually in the form of a grid and a narrow strip. Many lasers are not recommended to operate at temperatures below -5 degrees. Due to the uniform illumination of the entire field of view of night sights, the picture quality of digital sights is much better than with laser illumination.
Infrared light supplied with adjustable mount... This is a very important aspect when choosing an IR illumination. Adjusting the direction of the beam allows you to raise the infrared illumination beam just above the optical axis of the sight, and this avoids the backlighting of the foreground.
