This is our Black Sun Ruby IR System custom machined pill for maximum thermal efficiency, reliability and power in this popular format.
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 NM400, the performance of the Black Sun Ruby is comparable to that of our standard Black Sun in an XSearcher!
Once the Black Sun Ruby is put into a NM800 or XSearcher 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.
Warning: Use only with single battery torches.
