IR ILLUMINATORS
LIR SERIES
Compact Infra-Red illuminators comprised of high efficiency LED’s,
the LIR series of infrared illuminators are the ideal choice for short to
mid-range applications.
The inherent low power consumption of the solid state LED array
results in low running costs over the life of the lamp. With an average
LED life well in excess of 5 years the LIR series can provide real
savings for the user in terms of maintenance and servicing costs.
Tough, rugged and waterproof (IP67) with an attractive design, LIR
units can be used internally and externally to dramatically improve
the performance of IR sensitive CCTV cameras under night-time
conditions.
Rainbow illuminators are supplied with U-bracket and require 12-24V
AC/DC input power. Control features in the power supply include
adjustable power output and photocell. The LIR Series is suitable for

www.rainbowcctv.com
LENS TERMINOLOGY
ALC CONTROL: Photometric control, measures light intensity. Sets the iris to react to bright objects in a picture that do not affect the overall video level. Turning the control towards
Peak will increase sensitivity, towards Average will decrease sensitivity.
ANGLE OF VIEW: The angular range that can be focused within the image size. Small focal lengths give a wide angle of view, and large focal lengths give a narrow angle of view.
Sometimes referred to as Field of View.
APERTURE: Relates to the F-number. The effective aperture of a lens is not its actual diameter but the diameter of the image of the iris seen from the front of the lens. Larger
apertures equal smaller F-number.
AUTO-IRIS LENS: A lens with an electrically controlled iris. The circuit controlling the iris is set to maintain a constant video level in varying lighting conditions.
C-MOUNT: “C-mount” lenses have a flange back distance of 17.526mm vs. 12.5mm for “CS-mount” lenses. C-mount lenses can be used on CS-mount cameras by utilizing a 5mm
adapter or adjusting the camera for C-mount lenses.
CS-MOUNT: “CS-mount” lenses have a flange back distance of 12.5mm vs. 17.526mm for “C-mount” lenses. Because of the shorter back focal distance, CS-mount lenses can
only be used on CS-mount cameras. Your picture will be out of focus if you use a CS-mount lens on a C-mount camera.
DC TYPE LENS: An auto-iris lens without an internal circuit to control the iris. All iris control voltages come from a circuit located within the camera.
DEPTH OF FIELD (FOCUS): The zone in the front and back of the area focused upon that will remain in focus. Anything within this depth of field will appear sharp. Depth of field
has the following features: 1. Larger F-numbers give greater depth of field. The more the iris is stopped down the greater the depth of field. 2. Shorter focal lengths give greater
depth of field. 3. Greater subject distance gives greater depth of field. 4. Depth of field is greater behind the subject than in front.
EXTENSION TUBE: Kit consisting of various size spacers that are used between the lens and the camera to reduce the lens M.O.D. Generally used for very close-up applications.
Not recommended for zoom lenses due to loss of tracking.
F-DROP: The drop of the F-number of a while zooming at full aperture. The entrance pupil of a zoom lens changes in diameter as the focal length is changed. As you zoom towards
the telephoto end, the entrance pupil gradually enlarges. When the entrance pupil diameter is equal to the diameter of the focusing lens group, it cannot become any larger. This
causes the F-drop.
F-NUMBER: Indicates the brightness of an image formed by the lens. A smaller F-number means a brighter image.
FIELD OF VIEW: See Angle of View.
FOCAL LENGTH: The basic parameter to determine the image position, magnification, and angle of view of a lens.
IMAGE SIZE: Reference to the size of an image formed by the lens onto the camera pick-up device. The current standards are 1”, 2/3”, 1/2”, 1/3”, and 1/4” measured diagonally.
LEVEL CONTROL: Main iris control. Used to set the auto-iris circuit to a video level desired by the user. After set-up, the circuit will adjust the iris to maintain this video level in
changing lighting conditions. Turning the control towards High will open the iris, towards Low will close the iris.
MANUAL IRIS LENS: A lens with a manual adjustment to set the iris opening (F stop) in a fixed position. Generally used for fixed lighting applications.
MECHANICAL BACK FOCAL DISTANCE (FLANGE BACK): The distance from the flange of the lens (beginning of the lens mount) to the focal plane. C-mount lenses have a
flange back distance of 17.526mm vs. 12.5mm for CS-mount.
OPTICAL BACK FOCAL DISTANCE: The distance from the rear most portion of the lens glass to the image plane.
PINHOLE LENS: Lens used for applications where the camera/lens must be hidden. Front of lens has a small opening to allow the lens to view an entire room through a small
hole in a wall.
PRE-POSITION LENSES (PZF): Zoom lenses which utilize a variable-resistor (potentiometer) to indicate zoom/focus position to the lens controller. After initial set-up, this allows
the operator to view different pre-set areas quickly without having to readjust the zoom and focus each time.
INFORMATION
MINIMUM OBJECT DISTANCE (M.O.D.): The closest distance a given lens will be able to focus upon an object. This is measured from the vertex (front) of the lens to the object.
Wide angle lenses generally have a smaller M.O.D. than large focal length lenses.
SLIP CLUTCH: A part of the lens mounts which allows the lens position to be adjusted to a desired position after the lens is mounted. The lens will turn (slip) up to 350° until
reaching a physical limit.
SPOT FILTER: A supplement to the iris which allows the lens to have a larger F-number than is physically possible with the iris only. These usually range from F88 to F1600. This
allows very sensitive cameras to view bright scenes easily. The iris of a lens without a spot filter would not be able to close down enough in bright light to achieve a usable picture.
TRACKING: A zoom lens’ ability to remain in focus during the entire zoom range from wide angle to telephoto position.
VIDEO TYPE LENS: An auto-iris lens with internal circuit which receives voltage and a video signal from the camera to adjust the iris.
ZOOM LENS: A lens with a variable focal length to obtain a wide angle picture to a narrow angle picture to cover a variety of needs.
ZOOM RATIO: The ratio of the starting focal length (wide position) to the ending focal length (telephoto position) of a zoom lens. A lens with a 10X zoom ratio will magnify the image
at the wide angle end by 10 times when at the telephoto position.

IR ILLUMINATOR INFORMATION
For IR systems to operate properly, they must contain the following components:
1. IR illuminator
2. IR sensitive camera (True Day/Night)
3. Day/Night lens (IR)
Tips For Optimum Performance
1. Match the horizontal view of your lens (FOV) to the illuminator field of illumination
(Example: 90° lens FOV with 90° illuminator)
2. Make sure the illuminator has enough power to reach the scene. We recommend -10% from the maximum distance rating of
the illuminator. The camera, lens, and scene all have characteristics that can reduce the amount of IR being detected.
3. Use a CCD based camera if possible. Standard and Mega-Pixel CMOS based cameras can experience a considerable loss
of distance when used with infrared illmumination. Please call us if you have any questions about your application.

LENS FORMAT (IMAGE SIZE)
“Image size” refers to the size of an image formed by the lens onto the camera pick-up device. The current standards are 1", 2/3",
1/2", 1/3", and 1/4" measured diagonally.

FLANGE BACK VS. OPTICAL BACK FOCAL DISTANCE
Flange Back is the distance from the flange of the lens (surface of the lens
where the mount ends) to the image plane. C-mount lenses have a flange
back distance of 17.526mm vs. 12.5mm for CS-mount. Optical Back Focal
Distance is the distance from the rear most portion of the lens glass to the
image plane.
FOCAL LENGTH
Focal Length is the distance between the optical center of a lens and
the image plane of the camera. The focal length is measured in millimeters and determines both the magnification and the angle of view of
a lens. On a variable focal length lens or zoom lens this measure can be
adjusted between two preset focal length extremes.
ANGLE OF VIEW
Angle of View is the portion of a scene visible through the lens.
Small focal lengths give a wide angle of view, and large focal lengths
C-MOUNT / CS-MOUNT
CCTV lenses are available in two different lens mounts. “C-mount” lenses
have a flange back distance of 17.526mm vs. 12.5mm for “CS-mount” lenses.
Many of today’s cameras can accept either type of lens, but it is important to
make sure that camera and lens are compatible and set up properly. C-mount
lenses can be used on CS-mount cameras by utilizing a 5mm adapter or
adjusting the camera for C-mount lenses. Because of the shorter back focal
distance, CS-mount lenses can only be used on CS-mount cameras. Your
picture will be out of focus if you install a CS-mount lens on a C-mount camera.
