Baja Designs offers high performance LED IR lights for off-road trucks, UTVs, and ATVs. Baja Designs is The Scientists of Lighting provide Infrared Illuminators that produce light in the infrared spectrum for high performance night operations with Night Vision Goggles.
Baja Designs military Infrared IR LED lights to provide a high powered covert IR light source which is used to enhance night vision capabilities for vehicle lighting or boat. With the installation of IR Led Lights your, hunting and security lighting applications will become more efficient and productive. The Baja Designs Infrared LED lights are available in both 850nm and 940nm spectrums.
For infrared Auxillary LED lights to provide the power and strength required to meet whatever the road throws at it. With more than 20 years of off-road lighting experience, the infrared lights at Baja Designs provide powerful IR light and off-road durability.
NOTE: IR or Infrared Light is not visible to the Human Eye. Night Vision Goggles must be used for this light to become visible to the human eye!
Infrared radiation, or simply infrared or IR, is electromagnetic radiation (EMR) with longer wavelengths than those of visible light, and is therefore invisible, although it is sometimes loosely called infrared light. It extends from the nominal red edge of the visible spectrum at 700 nanometers (frequency 430 THz), to 1 mm (300 GHz although people can see infrared up to at least 1050 nm in experiments[. Most of the thermal radiation emitted by objects near room temperature is infrared. Like all EMR, IR carries radiant energy and behaves both like a wave and like its quantum particle, the photon.
Infrared was discovered in 1800 by astronomer Sir William Herschel, who found a type of invisible radiation in the spectrum lower in energy than red light, using its effect on a thermometer. Slightly more than half of the total energy from the Sun was eventually found to arrive on Earth in the form of infrared. The balance between absorbed and emitted infrared radiation has a critical effect on Earth's climate.
Infrared radiation is emitted or absorbed by molecules when they change their rotational-vibrational movements. It excites vibrational modes in a molecule through a change in the dipole moment, making it a useful frequency range for the study of these energy states for molecules of the proper symmetry. Infrared spectroscopy examines the absorption and transmission of photons in the infrared spectrum.
Infrared radiation is used in industrial, scientific, and medical applications. Night-vision devices using active near-infrared illumination allow people or animals to be observed without the observer being detected. Infrared astronomy uses sensor-equipped telescopes to penetrate dusty regions of space such as molecular clouds, identify objects such as planets, and to view highly red-shifted objects from the early days of the universe. Infrared thermal-imaging cameras are used to detect heat loss in insulated systems, to observe changing blood flow in the skin, and to detect overheating of electrical apparatus.
Thermal-infrared imaging is used extensively for military and civilian purposes. Military applications include target acquisition, surveillance, night vision, homing, and tracking. Humans at normal body temperature radiate chiefly at wavelengths around ten μm (micrometers). Non-military uses include thermal efficiency analysis, environmental monitoring, industrial facility inspections, remote temperature sensing, short-ranged wireless communication, spectroscopy, hunting, and weather forecasting.
The Baja Designs IR lights using the 850 nm wavelength is standard for most military and hunting applications. This 850 nm light source does produce a faint red glow, but otherwise, it remains invisible to the naked eye. Most of the true Day/Night cameras with removable IR cut filter have great sensitivity to 850nm wavelength, that’s why they are so widely used for IR illumination.
The Baja Designs IR lights using the 940 nm wavelength offer the advantage of being completely invisible for a further reduction of signature.
