Product Line

Pelco Cameras

Environment

Esprits with Raytec 50 Illuminators added to it as a Pelco SMR. Especially happens when the Esprit heaters come on.

Cause

The Illuminators are drawing to much current through the Esprit powers supply.

Resolution

The Raytec 50 series Illuminators have been approved for addition to the Esprit as an SMR. The illuminators need to be set up to draw as little power as possible. Inside the illuminator is a potentiometer that needs to be turned down to about 25% so that the illuminator draws less power. It comes from the Raytec factory set to the high position.

Note: This is apply to both Dual or Single IR Illuminators
