Illinois PS & Raytec IR 03A police department in Illinois chose the Power Sentry 6000 with Raytec’s VARIO Infra-Red LED illuminators to provide high performance surveillance lighting for an urban concert park. With large public events regularly taking place in the park, good lighting was required to improve CCTV image quality for ensuring public safety and reducing crime.

The park’s surveillance system requires regular modification for different events, so a lighting solution was needed that could be quickly adapted. The department approached Mobile Pro Systems for a solution and the Power Sentry equipped with Raytec Infra-Red LED Lighting was the clear choice.

“We had previously carried out extensive trials with illuminators from several different manufacturers,” said Joe Anaya, Project Manager at Mobile Pro. “The VARIO Infra-Red illuminators produced crisp and clear illumination and excellect CCTV images at night without bright or dark spots, with an illumination range that spanned further than others while requiring less power.”

VARIO i8 models were specially integrated into the Power Sentry all-in-one camera and lighting system for ease of transport and installation on site. The Illinois police department commented, “This technology has allowed us achieve a fit for purpose system with minimal environmental impact, and has greatly reduced system setup time. We couldn’t be more pleased with the results.”
