3W high-power 850 infrared LED

100 degree field of view, two pieces of LED is required to get wider field of view, up to 160 degree

Supported cameras: RPi Camera (E)RPi Camera (F)RPi Camera (H)


  • 3W high-power 850 infrared LED
  • Onboard photoresistor, the ambient light detector
  • Onboard adjustable resistor, for controlling the ambient light threshold of toggling the infrared LED
  • Suit for Raspberry Pi cameras which feature infrared night vision function:

How to Use

  1. Connect the Infrared LED Board to the camera PCB by screws
    • The screw holes are used for both attachment and power supply
  2. Adjust the adjustable resistor to set a proper ambient light threshold, which toggles the infrared LED automatically
    • When ambient light is lower than threshold value, the infrared LED is on, vice versa

Note :

  • Limited by the Raspberry Pi power supply, the 3W high-power infrared LED might cause the Pi to increase heating, heat sinks are suggested.
  • Ideal imaging distance is within 3m. When the distance goes up to 6m, the night vision camera can just capture blurry outlines.
