IR-Light: a High Intensity, Pulsed Illuminator for ANPR/ALPR

Read license plates even in the distance – thanks to this Infrared light extension module


In some ANPR projects, it is required to read license plates in the distance – even up to 100 meters from the camera, and that is definitely a challenge, especially in low light. For such scenarios, an additional illumination source comes in handy; that is why we designed this infrared light extension module that works with all of our ANPR cameras.

IR-LIGHT is a plug-n-play auxiliary light component constructed to illuminate the vehicle and its surroundings in a glare-free way, preventing excessive reflections and the overexposure of unnecessary details. Depending on the application, you can select IR-LIGHT with white light LEDs or infrared (IR) LEDs (760 nm or 850 nm), and you can connect even more than one unit to a single ANPR camera.

Highlighted features


Extended ANPR range

Traffic systems benefit from IR-LIGHT by its extended ANPR range, especially in low light conditions.


Plug & play

This illumination add-on works out of the box with Adaptive Recognition's Vidar ANPR camera for high-speed traffic.


Non-visible illumination

Better ANPR accuracy is made possible without ever disturbing the traffic.


Synchronized flash

IR-LIGHT works in complete synchrony with Adaptive Recognition's Vidar camera – it flashes as the camera controls it.


Glare-free imaging

Infrared illumination filters out well excessive reflections, creating a proper input for ANPR processing.


Sturdy design

The unit has a high-class IP67 rating to endure heavy rain and even a sandstorm.


IR-LIGHT has 25 powerful LEDs in a vandal-proof IP67 housing and it can be purchased as a light kit for ANPR cameras: everything comes in the box, nothing else is required except basic tools. We believe in sturdiness and quality, which is why this product comes with an extended 3-year manufacturer’s warranty.
