IR (Infrared) 24-LED IR Panel
54mm (2.2”) Board – 940nm LEDs
Important Availability Note: This infrared (IR) LED panel is no longer available.
An alternative is the 48-LED IR Panel which is also preassembled and tested. If you would prefer, a DIY 24-LED Panel is available with either 850nm or 940nm LEDs.
Imagine being able to see in total darkness, it's easy with any standard CCD video camera and our 24-LED IR Infra-Red Panel! Most CCD TV cameras, as well as night vision scopes, are sensitive to IR light. If you illuminate objects with IR, the camera will see as though being lit by a floodlight - but will look completely dark to the unaided human eye.
There's nothing magic about this board - it's just a circular array using 24 high-intensity IR LED's and appropriate drive circuitry. The real magic is your CCD video camera. CCD sensors are sensitive to IR light that you can't see, thus illuminate the scene with IR and the camera sees just fine. 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 similar to what you'd expect of a bright flashlight.
Our 24-LED IR Panel is constructed using 24 high-output 940nm 60° LEDs mounted on a 54mm (2.13") diameter board. These are the highest-quality LEDs with absolutely no Red Glow from the LEDs when they are on, making this panel ideal for surveillance applications. The panel has a working distance of approximately 10-13m (32’ to 42’) in ideal conditions. The board also includes an onboard light sensor (CDS cell) which will only illuminate the LEDs when the surrounding area is dark.
Power requirements for the board are 12v to 14v DC and draws approximately 150mA. Power draw of the board is only 1mA when in stand-by mode.
Board comes fully assembled and tested complete with a 14cm (5.5") power connection cable.
