Infrared (IR) cut-off filters are used with color CCD or CMOS imagers to produce accurate color images.  An IR cut-off filter blocks the transmission of the infrared while passing the visible.  This can be done with two optical techniques: absorption or reflection.  Absorptive filters are made with special optical glass that absorbs near infrared radiation.  Reflection type filters are short-pass interference filters that reflect infrared light with high efficiency.

We offer two types of absorptive IR cut-off filters, IRC20 and IRC21, and two types of reflective IR filters, IRC30 and IRC40. The IRC40 is a specialized reflective filter suitable for day/night cameras that allows both visible and 850nm infrared LED light to transmit. The absorptive filters are recommended for CCD imagers while the reflective are recommended for CMOS imagers. Our standard off-the-shelf filters are listed below. If you need a custom filter, please contact our support.
