  • Infrared LED set for Pi NoIR cameras
  • Gives your Raspberry Pi Night Vision!
  • These 2 high power 3W Infrared LEDs attach to the left and right of your Pi NoIR camera to allow the camera to see in darkness!
  • LED Power: 3 Watts
  • 2.5V regulator onboard
  • Supply voltage: 2.5V to 12V (3.3V recommended from Raspberry Pi GPIO)
  • Current: 240ma each (480ma for the pair)
  • Wavelength: 850nm
  • Power rating: 3W
  • Works with:
  • Onboard light sensor (The LEDs will only turn on when it is dark out to conserve energy)
  • Potentiometer onboard for adjusting the ambient light threshold
  • When the light in the room is below the ambient light threshold, the LED will be on.
  • Takes power from the Raspberry Pi's power supply so heatsinks and / or a cooling fan are recommended to dissipate excess heat created from the 3W high power drain.
  • The screw holes are used for both mounting and power supply! No extra wiring necessary!
  • Ideal imaging distance: up to 9.8 feet (3 meters)
  • When the distance goes up to 6m, the night vision camera can just capture blurry outlines.
  • Includes:
    • 2 Infrared LED Boards
    • 5 Screws
    • 5 Nuts
    • 1 Adhesive Pad
  • Connect the Infrared LED Boards to the left and right of the camera PCB with the screws
  • Adjust the potentiometer to set a proper ambient light threshold, which toggles the infrared LED ON/OFF automatically
How is the pi noir V2.1 suposed to power these when the 4 holes where they are to be screwed are not connected to any part of the circuit on the board ?
You will have to wire up the contacts to the 5V and ground pins for the V2.1 version. Or you can get the 5MP NoIR Camera V1 that has the contacts on the board and doesn\'t need wiring. If you don\'t need 8MP quality, I would use the 5MP version since then you don\'t have to bother with wiring. It\'s a trade off with a bit lower picture quality for a much easier wiring /neater setup.I set up a bunch of them and it was easy since you can just screw them on without having to run wires.

I\'m brand new to the world of raspberry pi, so forgive my lack of knowledge. I am trying to build a night time game catcher (bear, bobcat, mountain lion, raccoon. with a Pi Zero W, and the NOIR Camera V2. I need to add IR LED lights. Will this light work with my set-up? Is it what you would recommend?
For the Pi Zero W you\'ll need a camera cable adapter because the camera plug is a little smaller on the Zero W. Here are the parts I would recommend:
Pi Zero W Kit
Pi Zero Camera Adapter Cable
NoIR Pi Camera Module V1

how do you know which side of the contacts is positive or negative, when connecting it directly to the pi GPIO for power (picam2) ?
+ is on the side with 2 dots when viewed from the back.

How can I wire these infrared LED attachments to GND and 5V? I didn\'t see any pins or holes on these attachements.
The power pins are at the screw holes. This design lets you attach it directly to the NOIR camera without any wires where the mounting holes have gold power pads like this or if you want to place it somewhere else, attach the screw holes to 3.3V and GND from the GPIO pins to power directly and it will work well. You can even add a heat sink on the back of the LED if you want.

Hi there,

I tried to use these LED attachments in our optical imaging lab. I have one question that the wavelength of these LEDs. It is really important for our experiments but I didn\'t find them in the product description. Hope someone can answer me. Thanks.

Because I will test camera in the dark, I would like to know the wavelength of this LED attachments. Thanks!
850nm. Works well for night vision using the Pi camera.
