ETTLINGEN, Germany, April 7, 2016 — The VC Flash IR lighting module from Vision Components GmbH is designed to ensure optimal brightness in traffic surveillance and other intelligent transportation system applications. VC Flash illuminates an area measuring 7.5 × 5 m from 20 m away. Extrahigh brightness can be achieved by activating several connected modules. The module measures 195 × 80 × 20 mm. It operates with a central wavelength of 850 nm and a spectral width of 30 nm. Power consumption peaks at 36 W for the highest pulse duration and pulse frequency levels. A trigger regulates pulse duration from 10 to 500 μs, with automatic switch-off at the upper threshold.
