video light board is the first in our line of lighting boards. This
20 watt, 12V halogen light produces enough light for video
camcorders, and digital cameras running in movie mode. The greatest
feature about this board is the power supply on the board runs from
a 6V "Gel Cell" or "Sealed Lead Acid" battery, so you won’t need to build your trail camera with a
large 12V battery any more. The board also uses a PMW controller,
which cuts the current draw down considerably. The bulb has a 5000
hour rating, but I will be carrying additional bulbs on my web site
if you need a replacement. Note: you can run your PixController
board off of the same 6V "Gel Cell" or "Sealed Lead
Acid" Battery supply as you do the video light.
This board will work with the PixController Universal and the
original PixController board.
board will include a light bulb (MR11 type), power connector, and interface
cable for the PixController board (or other boards).
board size is a small 2” X 2 ˝” and has 4 (6-32" machine
screw) mounting holes.
carry a 2" X 2" IR filter which can be used with the
video light for users that want to produce IR emitted light. This
can be useful for Sony NightShot camcorders, or IR modified digital
cameras for taking stills and movies.
This will product a 40' to 60' IR spot light for your Sony
camcorder in NightShot mode. There will be a very slight red glow
from the IR filter. We recommend masking off the light internally by
putting the bulb into a PVC tube. If you mount the light into the
non-component "back mount" side you can run the PVC
tubing from the IR filter to the board.
