IR capability of Pi NoIR opens door to diversity of projects for Raspberry Pi enthusiasts

Oxford, UK, 28 October 2013 - RS Components (RS), the trading brand of Electrocomponents plc (LSE:ECM), the world's leading high service distributor of electronics and maintenance products, is now selling the latest innovative product to emerge from the Raspberry Pi Foundation. Priced at £16.80, the Pi NoIR infrared camera module is a variant of the existing visible light Raspberry Pi camera module stocked by RS since the end of last year, and features the same
5 megapixel image sensor as its predecessor with the optical light filter removed to enable IR light frequencies.

Developed for diverse applications including those requiring night vision (e.g. security and monitoring nocturnal animal behaviour), hyperspectral imaging, astronomy, and paranormal investigation, Pi NoIR is capable of taking still photos with a resolution of 2592 x 1944. The tiny module, which measures just 20mm x 25mm x 9mm, can also record up to 1080p HD videos at 30 frames per second, allowing users of Raspberry Pi models A and B to build video applications. The board will plug into the currently unused CSI pins on the Raspberry Pi, using the I²C interface for control.

To get started with Pi NoIR, users will need a Raspberry Pi board, an SD card with OS installed, and a battery pack or power supply. Optional extras include an infrared lamp, a Raspberry Pi camera stand, and various cables for HDMI, VGA and Ethernet connectivity. All components are available to purchase direct from RS stock.
