GJD, an Ava Group company, has today announced the launch of the new Clarius Medium Hybrid IP IR/WL LED illuminator. The Clarius medium Hybrid IP combines advanced Infra-Red and White-Light LED technology, in one unit for increased functionality and ease of installation.
The Clarius Hybrid provides infra-red light for monochrome night-time CCTV images, or white-light for color images. It is designed to smoothly integrate with IP cameras to provide event triggered lighting to illuminate and deter burglars.
Fully IP connectable, the Clarius Hybrid uses a remote user-friendly GUI. The installer can take complete control of the settings and programming at any time, from anywhere including power output, photocell sensitivity, and eco mode. If an intruder enters a restricted area on site, there is an option to activate the strobe function which provides an additional intruder deterrent.
Another key feature is the interchangeable diffuser system with elliptical beam profiles. Allowing light to be delivered exactly where it is needed with minimal light wastage. The new Hybrid illuminator also helps to prevent overexposure of foreground objects, this is especially useful for when the illuminator is integrated with CCTV.
One of the common issues of using cameras with in-built IR lighting, is that the heat source attracts insects and bugs. This blocks the cameras visibility, so the user can’t see the scene properly. For monitored CCTV systems, this will cause a high volume of nuisance activations, which will often result in the camera being deactivated.
To solve this issue, security installers will disable the internal camera LED’s and fit GJD’s Clarius illuminators, which will remove the heat source from the camera lens and provide brighter higher-quality images. Designed with a robust anodised aluminium heatsink, the installer can be rest assured the Hybrid will last the test of time. It is IP66 rated for durability against harsh environmental conditions, and has an IK09 impact protection rating.
The Clarius Hybrid is extremely versatile and offers security installers all the benefits of two illuminators, but in one unit. This reduces cabling, as well as minimises running costs and time spent on site.
