Infrared Radiation (IR), also called Infrared Light, is a type of radiant energy and is invisible to human eyes. Infrared waves have longer wavelengths than visible light and can pass through dense areas with less scattering and absorption. Thus, infrared energy can also reveal objects that cannot be seen in visible light or dark conditions.  Many agencies use Infrared Light to aid in nighttime illumination or to remain undetected to the human eye.

TOMAR offers several solutions for Infrared Illumination and Identification.  These solutions include:

Infrared Illumination:
  • TRX Off-Road Lightbars, with Infrared only or multi-function bars with Infrared, White, and Amber Light
  • TRT Tactical Off-Road Lightbars with Infrared and White Light, combined with flashing Warning Patterns in red, blue, or red and blue.
  • 970 Scorpion or Black Widow Lightbars with integrated Infrared Spot or Flood Modules
Infrared Identification:
  • RECT-14 Infrared Series
  • “Arch-Angel” Option to 970 Scorpion and Black Widow Lightbars add vertically oriented special-unit identification for aircrafts.
Infrared Traffic Priority Preemption Emitters:
  • Stand-alone 3×7″ or Low-Profile Emitters which can be mounted on Fire, EMS, PD, or Motorcycle Units.
  • Integrated high-power 2,500+ Feet Emitters built-into 970 Scorpion and Black Widow Lightbars

TOMAR’s Infrared Illumination takes a back seat to no one.  Our optimized optics work well not only for visible light, but Infrared light as well.  See how TOMAR’s IR modules stack up against the competition, and notice the lang-range spot and wide, full flood.

Infrared Series

The TRX Line is focused on illumination. This bar functions in nearly and environment you can think of, with its ability to adapt to the surroundings. Featuring intense white light for clear conditions; full amber-override for reduced glare in fog, rain, dust, smoke, etc. and 940nm infrared light for covert operations.


Infrared Series

The TRT Line is about mission adaptability between warning and illumination. This bar maintains the ability to project intense white light or 940nm infrared light; but can also function as a SAE-compliant warning light bar, which also meets CA Title 13 standards for 50-state compliance.


Infrared Series

TOMAR’s multi-function TRX and TRT Infrared (IR) Series is the answer to industrial-strength, flexible lighting solutions, optimized for military and government applications. With the ability to combine White; Amber; and IR light in the TRX Series; and White: IR: and Warning light in the TRT Series, TOMAR has the high-strength solution needed to accomplish the mission. These off-road light bars are designed and built to be both extremely rugged and reliable for the United States Military; Special Forces; DoD; and First Responders. For flexibility to meet the mission parameters of varying assets, TOMAR has engineered two sets of multi-function infrared light bars:

Infrared Series

  • Multi-function modes individually activated: -TRT gives all-modules SAE compliant warning in steady burn or up-to 20 programmable flash patterns, each with 8 selectable flash rates; intense white light for illumination; or stealth illumination with IR
  • Field-interchangeable lamp modules
  • Heavy-duty 6063-T5 aluminum chassis
  • Programmable flash patterns meet 50-state compliance
  • IP69K Rating for water and dust-proof components
  • Available in lengths: 6″, 10″, 15″, 20″, 25″, 30″ 35″, 40″, 45″, 50″, and 60″
  • Rugged anodize finish
  • Patented linear vibration welded light modules eliminate the need for failure-prone rubber sealing agent
  • Current draw: .85 amps @ +12.8VDC per IR module .46 amps @ +24VDC per IR module
  • Projected beam angles:
    -Visible light Spot 6.5°, Flood 85°
    -IR light Spot 8.5°, Flood 90°

Never before has a more rugged; more reliable; and more versatile off-road light bar been engineered for those who serve.
TOMAR stands behind our products, just like we stand behind you.

58" Black Widow

Infrared Series

Scorpion & Black Widow Infrared takedowns

The TOMAR 970 Scorpion and Black Widow Lightbars can be optioned with 940nm Infrared Spot or Flood Modules, to aid searches when Night-Vision Optical Devices (NODs) are in use.  These can be added in conjunction with a Lightbar’s standard visible-light scene or warning lamps.

Contact TOMAR to discuss options for specifying a 970 Lightbar equipped with IR modules.


RECT-14 Infrared

Infrared Series

Embodies four 850nm high power IR emitters.  The 4.5″ light heads are the perfect size to allow for that “fit-anywhere” design appearance, with a full array of mounting bracket options available to meet your installation needs.

The RECT-14 IR Series warning lights deliver huge impact in a small footprint, with tons of user selectable flash patterns. RECT-14 IR Series lights are made with optical Lexan and hermetically sealed creating a solid single piece structure that is built to last! Additionally, these lights are available for mounting on top of a Scorpion or Black Widow Lightbar for vehicle/asset identification from the air.

Infrared Series

Scorpion & Black Widow Arch Angel

The TOMAR 970 Scorpion and Black Widow Lightbars can be optioned with a unique feature, designed for airborne identification of ground assets.  The Arch Angel Infrared Option adds two RECT-14-style IR lamps to the top of the Lightbar’s extrusion, and is controlled through the Lightbar’s standard control harness.  

These powerful upward-facing 850nm IR lamps can help air units using Night-Vision Optical Divides (NODs) such as Forward Looking Infrared Radiation (FLIR*) to identify specific ground assets such as Command or Canine (K9) Units.  This identification can distinguish these special assets from other vehicles from the air with invisible light to the human eye, which can allow air units to direct them for a more efficient deployment.

Contact TOMAR to discuss options for specifying a 970 Lightbar equipped with Arch Angel.

Infrared Series

Optical emitters provide emergency vehicle preemption or transit priority at upcoming traffic signal intersections and gated entries.  Reducing response times in order to save lives and/or property in a proven, efficient & affordable way.

Applications include:

  • Providing high-priority or right-of-way for emergency vehicles at properly equipped intersections
  • Providing low-priority or sustained-green for transit vehicles at properly equipped intersections
  • Remote access to gated entries (such as those controlled by TOMAR’s Strobeswitch)

Infrared Series


TOMAR is the only single electronics manufacturing company which produces emergency warning lights, scene lights, preemption emitters, preemption detectors, and optical signal processors (OSPs).  Because of this, TOMAR’s Envelope of Safety (TM) can offer cost-saving solutions such as 2,500+ feet optical preemption emitters built-into 970/975 Scorpion or Black Widow Lightbars.
