Malaysia's Tallest Towers Deploy IR Illuminators
Raytec | Date:
The Petronas Towers in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, are protected by Raytec Infra-Red illuminators. The Towers were the tallest buildings in the world between 1998 and 2004 and remain the tallest twin buildings to this day. They were constructed as a monument to announce Kuala Lumpur's prominence as a cultural and commercial capital and consequently require the highest levels of security.
The Raytec units have been installed to secure the busy entrance areas during the hours of darkness, helping to deliver crisp and clear CCTV images of the towers 1500 daily visitors. The RM100 illuminators chosen deliver up to 150 metres of illumination, allowing the cameras to monitor a large area without the need for multiple light fittings; increasing safety without increasing cost.
Raytec illuminators employ state of the art SMT LED technology to deliver premium performance with significantly lower power consumption, lower running costs, longer life (minimum 10 years) and zero maintenance, compared to alternative lighting technology. In addition, all Raytec units are extremely reliable, robust and fully vandal resistant.
