PixController Video Light Board 
Overview

Discontinued Product

Introduction
The 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.

The board will include a light bulb (MR11 type), power connector, and interface cable for the PixController board (or other boards).

The board size is a small 2” X 2 ˝” and has 4 (6-32" machine screw) mounting holes.

We 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. 
 





Video Examples

Construction Note
You may want to have some small air gap between the IR filter (if you use one) and the bulb. If you run the bulb for any amount of time it will be come hot and can melt the IR filter.
