Target Light

XSW 30

used in the german tank Leopard I

The infrared or  white shining target light is a floodlight, in which alternatively the invisible infrared or the visible white  light radiation of the ARC -Xenon Bulb can be used. This bulb, in an interchangeable cartridge, is arranged horizontal in the optical axle of the main reflector  (see: Reflector). Its emitting rays are radiated by this parabolic reflector in the direction of the target. Opposite of the parabolic reflector a metallic ball reflector is mounted, which is fixed on the centre of the arc of the bulb. This reflector serves to get a nearly complete output of the radiation of the ARC - Xenon Bulb.
