The Sightmark Infrared Illuminator acts as a flashlight during night vision use. With the Infrared Illuminator, the user can illuminate the target without the prey detecting it. The Sightmark IR Illuminator is great for indoor and outdoor use, where there is low ambient light, such as during a SWAT raid in a dark warehouse or varmint hunting out on a moonless night.
Operable with two AAA batteries, the Sightmark Infrared Illuminator offers two power options, a low output at 70 miliwatts and a high output at 100 miliwatts for a more powerful and brighter experience. Featuring a battery life of 20 hours, the infrared illuminator also has an adjustable beam focus to widen or narrow the stream of light. The adjustable beam focus is perfect for not only user preference, but for adapting to long and short ranges and indoor/outdoor use. For closer ranges or indoor use, where target acquisition is important, the wider beam will cover a wider field of view.
The design of the IR flashlight is great for handheld use and the location of the on/off switch makes it easy to operate with the thumb. As long as the enemy does not have night vision, the IR flashlight can be used for covert signaling at night. The Infrared Illuminator comes with a standard one inch weaver mount that fits most AR15s and average rifles and also comes with nylon carrying case for easy carry and storage.
