48-LED 940nm IR (Infrared) Panel
48-LED Infrared Illuminator with Light Sensor
There's nothing magic about this board. It's a circular array using 48 high-intensity IR LEDs and appropriate drive circuitry. The real magic is your CCD video camera. CCD sensors are sensitive to IR light that you can't see. The IR illuminator lights the scene with infrared light and the camera sees in low-light conditions. The small size allows easy hiding in clocks, smoke detectors, pictures or any object you can think of. Place a piece of smoked plexiglass in front (it looks clear to IR) and you’ve hidden your IR light source. The whole array will illuminate like what you'd expect of a bright flashlight. The IR light generated from this panel is completely invisible to the human eye. There is no red glow indicating the panel is on. Great for covert surveillance applications.
Our 48-LED IR Panel uses 48 high-output 940nm 60° LEDs mounted on a 53mm (2.1") diameter board. These are the highest-quality LEDs with absolutely no Red Glow from the LEDs. The panel has a working distance of approximately 15-20m (49’ to 65’) in ideal conditions. The board also includes an onboard light sensor (CDS cell). It will only illuminate the LEDs when the surrounding area is dark.
Power requirements for the board are 12v to 14v DC and draws approximately 400mA at 12v. Power draw of the board is only 2mA when in stand-by mode.
Board comes assembled and tested with a 14cm (5.5") power connection cable.
