Photo Camera with IR Laser Illuminator

PKI 5150Print

For more than 30 years, PKI has been dealing with night photography, i.e. taking photos during pitch-black night, and facial recognition up to a distance of 50 m. In the past, an IR flash was used for this; today we have solved this task with an IR laser in the 910 nm range. A detection by the photographed person is impossible as the IR frequency range of 910 nm is invisible to the human eye. The PKI 5150 is indispensable for professional observations. The used single-lens reflex camera with 300 mm telephoto lens has been modified by us and can only be used for night shots in combination with our IR laser. In contrast to low-light systems, the resolution of the photos taken with our PKI 5150 is considerably higher. Further processing of the stored digital images is possible at any time.
