Dragon Dome LED
Security surveillance over large distances is now possible thanks to the new infrared Dragon Dome LED from Osram Opto Semiconductors (Sunnyvale, CA). The focused beam of this high-power Infrared LED (IRED) achieves a range of more than 100 meters (109.36 yards). It has a compact design and does not need an external lens. With its wavelength of 850 nanometers, this LED is ideal as a light source for security surveillance tasks. The Dragon Dome SFH 4783 is the first high-power infrared LED that emits its light within a narrow angle of +/-12 degrees, says the company. From a current of 1 A, it achieves a total radiated power of 430 milliwatts and a radiant intensity of 2.3 watts per steradian. At this radiant intensity, the beam of light will have a usable range of more than 100 meters, depending on the sensitivity and field of view of the camera.
