The NM1 SL is the perfect balance between the NEW XL and CL NM1 IR Illuminator models, thanks to a combination of the latest LED technology and ultra-clear 50mm convex lens you can expect to detect eye-shine out to 900m and clear ID through night vision up to 350m away with the 850nm wavelength. The SL offers you a perfect beam balance of being tight enough to reach a long distance yet wide enough to still cover a good amount of area when looking through the riflescope, this is the perfect scope mounted IR illuminator.
The NM1 IR range of illuminators have been specifically designed for night hunting, with controls that are close-at-hand. Beam focus, brightness control and all other functions are operated from the tail-switch. So if the hunting lamp is rifle-mounted there's no need to reach forward to twist the lens or fumble looking for buttons.
The switch is quiet and brightness control is smooth with the rotary dimmer. A lock-out function prevents accidental activation and a soft-glow indicator pulsates when the battery power reaches 10%. The indicator light can also be set to activate when the beam is active - an ideal alert if you leave your infrared (IR) LED switched on.
The NM1 IR range of Illuminators are designed to be used with any digital or tubed night vision device, available in both 850nm & 940nm you can expect the perfect amount of illumination due to the amount of light control you have through the smooth twist brightness control and rear focus control which are both controlled by the intelligent tail cap - this completely eliminates white-out.
All NM1 models are modular with each-other, meaning that you can easily swap the LED module from one different colour to another or even change the lens size, with no tools required in a matter of seconds.
The NM1 range is our most powerful, versatile and best yet - it is the ONE to trust.
Choosing the right wavelength
If you’re looking for the brightest most powerful IR LED that we offer for your Night Vision device, the IR (Infrared) 850NM is the one to go for. The 850NM is designed towards massively enhancing NV devices that require as much IR illumination as possible such as digital or older intensified tubed night vision devices.
This will give you an amazing amount of clarity with it being an LED, the advantage of using LED IR over laser IR is that although the LED won’t travel a mile, at the realistic distances that you’re going to be looking at it’ll give you much better clarity over a laser IR.
The IR 940NM is popular to use with the ‘high end’ intensified tubed night vision devices as they require much less IR to give you a good picture at longer distances and help detect eye-shine, the main difference that you’ll notice between the 850NM and the 940NM is that the glow from the LED is much less on the 940NM making it more covert.
Many shooters favour the 940NM over the 850NM when it comes to ‘spook-able’ quarry such as wild boar, as they are completely unaware of the IR 940NM light - but only go for the 940NM if you aren’t chasing distance, the 940NM has around 30% less range than the 850NM.
Please note: IR (Infrared) is invisible to the naked eye! IR is only compatible if you have a Night Vision device which requires an IR illuminator.
