Black Sun Ruby BR501 50mm IR illuminator

Our BR501 IR LED illuminator is a great addition to your night vision setup.

The BR501 IR is fitted with the latest Black Sun Ruby IR System pill.

The Black Sun Ruby  IR System is our latest development and is most suitable for add on night vision systems that require extreme power density, tighter beam focus, clarity and image contrast.

In terms of performance, in a 38mm aspheric illuminator such as a T20, the performance of the Black Sun Ruby is comparable to that of our standard Black Sun in a 67mm aspheric!

Once the Black Sun Ruby is put into a 50mm or larger Aspheric or sunnranger it is absolutely the most effective IR illuminator available at this time.

This new development can be used to either save weight by dropping from a 67mm to a 38mm lens illuminator or to gain considerable performance increase by using the larger 50 and 67mm lenses.

The Black Sun Ruby uses a slightly shorter wavelength of infra red light to achieve better efficiency and image contrast. Due to this and the high level of output power the visible glow from the die of the LED is more than that of our Black Sun 2. This can be mitigated if necessary by using the 3 power level modes built into the pill, accessed by a short press of the illuminator's switch to cycle through power levels.


The beam is focussed via a precision aspherical lens and is easily and smoothly adjusted from flood to spot.

The illuminator comes with a variable power tail cap tactile switch with memory for Low / Medium / High power outputs.
