Night Vision Illuminator

Postby phoglund on Fri Nov 14, 2008 12:05 pm

I'd like to purchase a stand-alone IR Illuminator to enhance the capability of my Gen 1 device. What should I be looking for and are there any recommendations for an illuminator in the sub-$200 price point?

The best IR illuminator that I have use is the Pentagonlight S2-IR 4-watt IR illuminator. This uses multiple IR LED lights that produce a nice far reaching beam that covers a long distance as well as having a nice flood beam while having a minimal visible signature. This will greatly enhance the performance of any night vision device.
Best regards,
