Understanding the Development Origins of Infrared Laser Compensation Technology and 3KM Optoelectronics in the Past Ten Years
The infrared laser night vision lighting industry is not very large, and as of 2023, its global development history is only over a decade. However, whenever it comes to the topic of infrared laser compensation, industry insiders will naturally mention the 3KM Optoelectronics. Next, let's explore the historical origins of the development of 3KM Optoelectronics and infrared laser night vision lighting technology.
Ten years ago, LED infrared lights, which had an effective distance of only a few tens of meters and a very short service life, accounted for over 95% of the night vision monitoring and lighting market. At that time, infrared laser fill lights were still in their early stages of development, mainly lasers with edge emitting point light sources. The farthest fill distance was only within the range of 200 to 500 meters, and the homogenization effect of the laser spot was not ideal. The significantly lagging night vision fill technology has become increasingly difficult to meet the development needs of the long-distance, high-definition professional night vision monitoring fill market.
It is in this market context that 3KM Optoelectronics was officially established, with the development positioning of ultra long-range infrared laser lighting as the company's development positioning. The overall layout, step by step exploration and progress, and one by one breakthroughs in the industry's technological bottlenecks, harvesting one after another technological innovation achievements, while also promoting the development of the laser night vision lighting industry.
2015-- Promote the intelligent development of the laser night vision lighting industry
1. Pioneering laser homogenization technology with uniformity, controllability, and high transmittance
It has achieved the use of standard data parameter values to control the process flow and optical design effect of frosted glass, making the transmittance, uniformity, and consistency of frosted glass completely controllable. It can also be used for digital batch production, improving production efficiency. Solved the technical bottleneck of low transmittance, poor consistency, and uncontrollable ground glass laser homogenization technology necessary for traditional infrared laser illumination.
2. Launch of fully intelligent infrared laser fill light
The first fully intelligent infrared laser lamp is launched, which can be intelligently and remotely controlled through software, achieving three major functions: plug and play, remote control, and remote monitoring. Intelligence has become the main feature of the fourth generation infrared laser lamp, replacing the third generation automatic infrared laser lamp.
2016-- Pioneering the Era of Safe Laser Night Vision Lighting
3. Pioneering zero loss, noiseless laser homogenization technology
The 3KM microlens laser homogenization technology solves all the defects of traditional ground glass laser homogenization technology, with six highlights: no light loss, no noise, no vibration, no shaking, no speckle, and more transparent image quality.
4. Pioneering Safe Long Range Infrared Laser Lamp
The first to adopt VCSEL (surface emitting light source), with a maximum effective fill distance of 800 meters, and the first to obtain Class 3B laser safety certification from FDA and IEC, with an optical power only 50% of the upper limit of Class 3B safety standards. The laser safety distance at the minimum angle is only a few meters, which enables long-distance infrared laser fill lights to successfully enter night vision security monitoring in crowded places such as large shopping malls, squares, and communities. In just over a year, traditional EEL (edge emitting) laser lamps within an 800 meter range were successfully eliminated.
5. First to achieve industrial grade operating temperature range
The first -40 ℃ extreme temperature cold start, with a maximum operating temperature of+85 ℃ and a continuous service life of 50000 hours. The working temperature range of traditional infrared laser illumination is only -20 ℃ to+55 ℃.
2017-- Infrared laser lighting replaced LED infrared lighting and entered the high-end close range supplementary lighting market
6. Create a fixed focus infrared laser fill light
A full series of fixed focus infrared laser lamps with a range of 50-500 meters, with an exclusive minimum angle of 3 ° in the industry, and a Class 3B laser safety level. Solved the problems of short distance, short lifespan, and poor performance of LED infrared lights, and the compatible structure can directly replace LED infrared lights for high-end ball and gun monitoring equipment;

14. Full clear laser lighting technology
The industry's first fully clear infrared laser fill light, not only has clear spot edges, but also maintains transparent image quality and clear image during automatic zoom. The infrared laser fill light technology has entered the era of full clear for the first time. Solved the problem of virtual focus blurring that cannot be avoided when traditional infrared laser lamps zoom due to inconsistent optical axis and stride.
