Vista, CA (PRWEB) October 20, 2011
FoxFury Lighting Solutions, designer and manufacturer of professional portable LED lighting, announces its powerful new Nomad Infrared (IR) Area-Spot light, the first portable IR LED combination area light and spotlight. This rechargeable quick deployment 850 nm IR light can be set up or taken down in 20 seconds and features built-in legs and the ability to telescope up to 8 feet tall. The Nomad IR serves as an effective niche lighting tool for security, military and police special operations and forensics.
At 17 pounds and 33", the Nomad IR can be carried through the worst terrains imaginable. The light offers three intensities and converts from an area light to spotlight by quickly detaching its diffuser lens allowing the Nomad to function as either a flood light or longer range spotlight. The Nomad runs on a rechargeable lithium ion battery system, which provides 2.5-9 hours of light.
Law enforcement and military agencies employ Infrared light sources when using night vision systems. IR light essentially increases the visual field when seen through night vision devices. The Nomad IR is a stealth lighting tool that can provide flood or distance lighting in SWAT, security checkpoints and more.
“The Nomad IR gives special ops the ability to covertly blanket an area with an unseen light. That presents a huge tactical advantage in the field and allows them to own the night,” said Tim Ellwood, LE / Military Sales Manager for FoxFury.
Infrared light is also used by forensic investigators in the laboratory and at crime scene to detect dried blood on dark clothing. IR light also helps locate bite marks, bruising and gun shot reside (GSR). Little ambient lighting and a camera with IR capabilities is also needed in order to best visualize evidence.
