IR Camera Housing - Raytec Lighthouse

Author: John Honovich, Published on Apr 21, 2014

A key limitation of integrated IR cameras is distance covered. Even long range integrated IR cameras are typically not more than 50 meters. 

Now, Raytec is releasing the Lighthouse, what they describe as a "fully integrated lighting and housing solution" that supports using 3rd party box cameras in an assembly delivering 400% greater range than professional integrated IR cameras.
