Night Reaper CSWL

Please see our dedicated website : in French here and in English here

The Night ReaperTM Crew Served Weapon Light (CSWL) is a powerful High Intensity Discharge (HID) Searchlight specifically designed for military and security applications where dominance in low-light environments is paramount.

The Night ReaperTM Crew Served Weapon Light (CSWL) is a 50-watt, 5,200 lumen High Intensity Discharge (HID) Searchlight that simultaneously provides an unparalleled combination of long range and wide-angle illumination in both white and Infrared (IR) light.

Unlike other lighting systems that involve the requirement of either manually or remotely “rotating the bezel” in order to provide either a narrow beam of bright light or a wide beam of pale light, the Night Reaper’sTM pre-focused, long-arc Xenon-Metal gas-filled lamp and reflector provide a consistently intense beam that illuminates vast areas over great distances at the same time. Inherent within the Night ReaperTM CSWL is a built-in thermal controller that automatically regulates the light down to 40-watts and 4,200 lumens after approximately 5 minutes of CONSTANT ON use. If the searchlight is turned off and then turned on again, it immediately reverts to the 50-watt, 5,200 lumen output and the time cycle begins again.

The Night Reaper HID Searchlight

‣ 5,200+ lumens of clean, brilliant white light

‣ Remote switching for the gun operator (ON/OFF)

‣ Remote power choices from multiple sources including D/C vehicle power (12-28V), readily available Military 5590 Lithium Sulphur batteries and their rechargeable counterparts as well as Polarion Lithium-Ion rechargeable batteries

‣ Quick connect and disconnect for gun-mounted or handheld applications at will, on the fly

‣ When disconnected (I.E. vehicle power fails, cable is damaged), the system will have backup power for 60 minutes +/- 10% of onboard power

‣ Lamp Assembly is Field Replaceable

‣ Secure double locking/850 nm IR Filter, all aircraft-grade aluminum body, MILSPEC connectors and cables

‣ The system can be configured with or without an internal battery, tethered as handheld spotlight to a vehicle, boat, or airborne platform, or to the solider for ground search operations.
