The new RAYMAX Panoramic Ultra illuminators represent the latest development in ultra wide 180° illumination, for seamless, full scene surveillance images at night. Panoramic Ultra illuminators now offer a much better spread of light and longer illumination with distances up to 150m (492ft) at 180°, making them perfect for wide angle, PTZ, multi-sensor, or 360° dome cameras covering large areas.
We are often asked ‘what is the performance difference between 850nm and 940nm infra-red lighting?’ We answer your question with this video. All cameras are most sensitive to 850nm infra-red, delivering superior surveillance footage at night. 940nm delivers virtually invisible covert lighting but does result in reduced performance (typically up to 40% less) and requires a very sensitive camera. Here we take a high performance camera and see how it performs with 850nm and 940nm
