Gold Medal of Securex for Redbeam IR illuminators
Readbeam IRD120 is a modern IR illuminator designed for indoor applications (ceiling-mounted). Its IR LED array provides IR light of 850 nm wavelength, with radiation angle of 180o in vertical plane and 360o in horizontal plane, covering area up to 120 m2.
Distinguishing features:
  • IR LED array
  • Output power: 3000 mW
  • Maximum covered area: 120 m2
  • Operational angle: 180o (vertical plane), 360o (horizontal plane)
  • 8-times longer life than conventional LEDs
  • Indoor aluminum housing
IR illuminators of Redbeam series are modern devices for providing homogeneous IR light in the monitored area in order to enable CCTV cameras to capture images in low-light or no-light environments. The advantage of the series is application of specially designed LED arrays (instead of conventional sets of diodes) which, together with optical lenses, ensure desired operational angles and distances.
The IR illuminators of the series, cooperating with day/night cameras, make perfect sets for night surveillance. Their twilight sensors in combination with high-efficiency IR LED arrays provide very good results, with relatively low power consumption.
A typical IR LED provides output power between 5 mW and 15 mW, so, even in the case of short operational distance, an IR illuminator has to employ at least several such diodes. The Redbeam IRD120 illuminator provides 3000 mW. This means a much larger coverage capacity, in spite of the small size of the device.
Comparison of IR illuminators with similar output power
Another advantage of the arrays is the lifetime of the materials used. Standard heavy-duty IR diodes operate around 6000 hours. In the case of the arrays, the expected lifetime is about 50000 hours. It means that they can work for over 10 years (12/24 cycle)!
The casing is made of aluminum (black finish). To prevent overheating, the body is formed as a radiator. For optimal results, the illuminator should be mounted on the ceiling in the middle of a room.
We also offer IR illuminator with coverage area up to 60 m2 - M1642.
There are available cameras with pre-mounted other illuminator/s (M1632): M1130 (one illuminator), M1131 (two illuminators).
