Iluminar recently introduced a line of long-range, independent IR illuminators, the IR919-2 Series, which serves as an alternative to IR cameras. While an IR camera typically captures objects within about 100 ft., Iluminar’s IR lights capture objects at distances up to 900 ft., according to the manufacturer. Additionally, by not having the LEDs inside a camera, the separate illuminators avoid heat built up, hotspots and insect attraction and they preserve the life of the LEDs while also freeing up more bandwidth on the camera. Iluminar also offers double and triple mounting brackets for the lights. By using these accessories, an end user can achieve 360 degrees of light coverage, which is ideal for solutions such as PTZ cameras.
