IRLamp6


IRLamp6 is an incredibly bright IR source for field use. It offers 40 high performance IR LEDs in a specially designed heat sink case. At less than three inches in diameter, the lamp takes up very little room in a backpack.

A dramatic improvement on our IRLamp3 Array, we have use a totally machined case to improve both the ruggedness and manufacturability of these lights. This case also offers better heat sinking capability so can run these brighter than our original IRLamp3 design. Otherwise the design is much the same as our original IRLamp3.

Design elements of IRLamp6 arrays:

  • Compact and field rugged
  • Completely solid state, no filaments to burn out
  • Efficient use of battery power, puts far more of the energy into light, waste as little as possible so you carry a smaller battery
  • Produces bright light with a beam angle suited to most video cameras
  • The wavelength of the light is just long enough to not be visually disturbing to most wildlife, but short enough to fall within the sensitivity of most video cameras
  • Input voltage designed to use common and easily charged 12V sealed lead-acid batteries or vehicle power systems
  • An under voltage lockout circuit turns off the lamp when the battery is exhausted, avoiding over-discharge of the battery
  • Mounted with a common 1/4"-20 thread standard on photographic tripods
  • Supplied hot shoe adaptor allows the lamp to be mounted atop many video cameras
  • Available in 20 degree (standard) as well as 12 and 40 degree beam widths.

The IRLamp6 is the latest result of years of development and field experience videotaping wildlife in southern Arizona.
