The Raytec ir illuminator.
The RM300 is the new ir illuminator from Raytec. It is part of the RAYMAX series and is generally recommended where CCTV professionals have specified PTZ dome cameras on an installation. As with all Raytec ir illuminators the design of the product is based around the ethos of zero maintenance and longevity of life. The weak point of PTZ domes is their inability to deliver night time pictures in areas of absolute darkness and the raytec RM300 solves this issue delivering a performance that is second to none. What is more, reliability is totally assured.
Using a clever design the raytec series of ir illuminators provide total flexibility to alter the angle of illumination. This is particularly important on sites where light levels need to be controlled. The Raytec ir illuminators have an adjustable power output, a photocell and the Raymax series also boast telemetry control. RAYMAX ir illuminators are also purpose designed to provide even output illumination. Each IR illuminator is fitted as standard with Active LED Life Control. This will carefully control LED output, delivering consistent illumination. As a result of this the Raytec ir illuminator will have a projected working life of 10 years. All the ir illuminators in the range are supplied with bracket and power supply.
The RAYMAX 300 in particular is generally specified for low light installations that require illumination up to 370 metres (1,214ft) away.
Raytec have built a reputation as the World leader in ir illuminator production. The led lighting technology has been deployed for security and safety around the world. The main aim of Raytec is to improve the safety of any area at night and to improve the performance on any CCTV system under darkness. Lower power requirements are also a major benefit when it comes to reducing light pollution and environmental considerations.
So if you need quality and reliability to ensure you CCTV cameras get the correct level of lighting then the Raytec ir illuminator range is a good starting point.
