EX IR Light
The Arisaka EX IR Light is an illumination package consisting of an Arisaka Light Body, Tailcap, and Malkoff Devices EX IR Scout head. Simply add an aftermarket Scout mount of your choice for a complete infrared lighting solution.
The EX IR Scout head outputs light in the 850nm infrared spectrum. It has a very focused beam with minimal spill, making for an excellent infrared illuminator which easily surpasses the performance of any civilian powered IR laser/illuminator. It also supports a wide voltage range which allows it to be powered off of one CR123, two CR123, or 16650 rechargeable cells.
The heads have a 5 degree beam angle, so the 250mW output version produces a beam that is similar in intensity to the MAWL C1+ long range setting, but covers approximately twice the area. This makes for a very usable illuminator from close range to several hundred meters, without being too powerful as to wash out your laser pointer or cause your image intensifier to bloom or gate down.
The 700mW output version is for much longer range, and depending on the image intensifier, can illuminate objects well past 600 meters, and is bright enough to produce reflections off of bullets as they travel down range. It exceeds PEQ-15 high output at equivalent illuminator focus.
Included is a low profile Arisaka Light Body for an unobstructed, close fit when using an Arisaka Inline, Offset, or Side Scout Mount, along with your choice of tailcap:
- Surefire UE socketed tailcap - for use with remote switches
- Surefire DS socketed tailcap - has both a remote switch port and clicky switch
- No tailcap - in the event you already have a tailcap to use
The EX IR Light will fit in almost any aftermarket Scout mount, as it retains the mounting holes and square lug interface on the underside of the light body.
Please note: this light is infrared only. It is only visible with the use of image intensifier devices.
