IP Hybrid

VARIO2 IPPoE, medium and long range Hybrid illuminators

About VARIO2 IPPoE – Hybrid

Infra-Red 850nm & White-Light

The awarding-winning VARIO2 IPPoE delivers dedicated high-performance lighting for IP cameras. Hybrid technology delivers all the performance of a stand-alone Infra-Red and a stand-alone White-Light illuminator in a single, fully integrated two-in-one solution, and can be fully integrated into an IP eco-system to provide smart, situation dependent lighting. The range is made up of a number of sizes designed to cover medium and long-range distances.

Outstanding Distances.

Hybrid delivers distances of up to 450m (1476ft) of Infra-Red illumination and 195m (640ft) of White-Light illumination - all from a single illuminator.

Fully Programmable.

Control from anywhere on the network. Easy set-up, commissioning, operation and maintenance, minimising labour time and costs whilst maximising performance 24/7.

Integrated Web Interface.

An integrated web interface provides a host of user-defined additional settings and diagnostics tools. Tailor your solution to meet the exact demands of your installation.

Advanced Security and Diagnostics.

Greater levels of security with stricter access controls and secondary HTTP port access. Health monitoring and lifetime diagnostics provide insight into illuminator history and status.


VARIO2 Hybrid illuminators are available in a range of different sizes to suit different applications and requirements.
