A micro processor controls and monitors the lamp with the following functions:
-The standard 20/50 watt HLX high power halogen Bulb is supplied with a controlled over voltage. The Bulb effectively has more than a 30% increase in illumination.
-a current limiter regulates the current in the first vital moments when the unit is switched on, thus protecting the delicate high performance Bulb.
-4 phase variable power setting allows the lamp to be adjusted to individual needs
A magnetic field monitor prevents the unit from being activated by a foreign magnet. The discharge protection switches the lamp off and prevents the voltage in the cells falling below 0.9 volts. A low capacity warning informs the user with 3 blinks of the halogen Bulb, of the imminent end of the burn time. The lamp can then be switched over to a reduced power setting, thus extending the time before the lamp turns itself off.
SOS Flashing according to the Morse alphabet, (3 x short, 3 x long, 3 x short), can be used as a distress signal.
The cell pack is a plug in unit and can be replaced within seconds with a second unit. The spot reflector provides a soft transition from a bright center to a softly illuminated extremity. Beneath the reflector unit there are two housings for spare Bulbs. A special flood reflector for video use is available as an accessory. An automatic charger is supplied with each lamp, suitable for use with either 115 or 230 volts.
The charger switches automatically over to a pulse trickle charge when the cells are fully charged. The state of charge is indicated by an LED signal. The maximum charging time is 8 1/2 (2 1/2) hours. Option for mini compact:
An automatic rapid charger off-shore I/6 (off-shore II), with a maximum charge time of 4 1/2 (2 1/2) hours is optionally available.
