Overview of the Raytec Vario IP PoE i8

Part of the Raytec Vario PoE series of network illuminators, the IP PoE i8 delivers high performance and flexible infrared illumination, enabling infrared-sensitive CCTV cameras to capture long-range monochrome video footage. This unit is ideal for large outdoor applications with multiple cameras that require 24 hour high quality surveillance. Featuring PoE connectivity, the Vario IP PoE i8 can be controlled over a network and can be remotely accessed for quick and easy set up and maintenance, reducing site visits and lowering costs. The unit supports both PoE (60W PoE++) or low voltage (24V DC) power supply, providing installation flexibility depending on requirements or preference.

The IP PoE i8 unit supports the Vario interchangeable lens system, enabling users to adapt the angle of illumination to best suit the application by using holographic lenses. 10°, 35° and 60° lenses are supplied with the unit and 80° and 120° lenses are also available (please select from the drop down menu above if required). The Vario IP PoE i8 is IP66-rated and provides infrared illumination up to a maximum of 220m, ideal for large outdoor spaces such as shipping ports and high streets.

Infrared light is efficiently and precisely delivered by the Vario IP PoE i8 using Hot Spot Reduction Technology (HRT), which generates longer illumination distances, minimises light wastage and prevents overexposure. All LEDs are equipped with Platinum SMT technology, comprising Light Intensification Miniature Optics (LIMO) and Cool Running thermal management technologies to provide high performance with maximum power output and reliability.

The Vario IP integrated web interface provides user-friendly management for one or multiple Vario IP illuminators, offering advanced user defined settings such as timer functions. The interface offers handy, quick access to respond to live events or to make manual adjustments, in addition to offering easy software upgrades. Completely password protected, the web interface is secure and assists with technical support by providing advanced diagnostics for each light.

The Raytec Vario IP PoE i8 comes with a wall/ceiling mount bracket and the unit has a 5 year warranty.
