I’m contemplating a project and it involves implementing dual infrared and white light in a single reflector. Emitter being replaced would be about the size of a xr-e and I need about 200 lumens from each die. Of course, the dies would need to have separate grounds. Does anyone have any ideas or sources?
Sources? For IR emitters? http://mtnelectronics.com has black olsons.
I did not realize that. But all OOS and all are pure IR emitters. Though I recall seeing dual-emitter pads for sale on Fasttech once. Could be something to consider. thank you.
Though I just learned that the device’s function I’m attempting to copy did so with a polarizing filter over an incandescent lamp, so the project is kinda just dead. When/if I get NODs I’ll just buy a DBAL to go with it.
Opps, I missed that you were asking for a white led + IR on a single package. I’m not sure if that exists.
Also OOS? NOD? DBAL?
And I think you just made up the last one for fun!
NOD Night-Optical-Device [night vision]
DBAL Dual-Beam-Aiming-Laser [ir and visible laser slaved together with an ir illuminator for use with night vision]
Sorry, forgot I wasn’t on Ar15.com.
What is the device were you looking to copy and do you know the purpose of polarizing it? Doesn’t night vision work just as well with un-polarized light sources?
I was looking at buying an airsoft copy of the Surefire M900v. The Original has a function where you twist a collar on the bezel to switch from white to infrared spectrum. I thought it was done with a dual-die LED, as for $500+ it should effing better have a LED, but it turns out it’s a polarizing filter over an incandescent bulb on the real item. The copy version is just a white LED and the rotating collar serves to switch it from constant to strobe. It’s still something I could do but I think its just going to make for a more reliable system to buy the normal M910A copy, put a warmer emitter in it, make sure its waterproof, and then when I eventually buy night vision, get a proper ir illuminator.
Night vision would work with un-polarized light I imagine. I must not be understanding things right.
