Superled-SE module for Duo Petzl
This module can substitute the couple Superled for Duo + Micro-Zoom for Duo. Superled-SE has the same baseplate and the same LED's of Superled-3 modules family. The progression light has 1 light level at 120 lumen without SW electronics. The result is a lower cost module that still remains powerful with a very nice look. Technical specifications: -Single level double-led progression light at 120 Lumen 100° wide. -Autonomy: 10 hours at 120 Lumens + 72 hours decreased from 120 to 0 Lumen (AA alkaline batteries). -Micro-Zoom: focused light beam 10° with 5000 candles of a light intensity. -Autonomy: 4 hours at 5000 Candles (AA alkaline batteries). -The system can be powered with alkaline or rechargeable Ni-Mh batteries. -Medium life: 100,000 hours. -It does not interfere with the compass during surveys. Also availeable the following versions: - Superled HSE with hybrid (4500°K) progression light of 120 Lumens and 9 hours autonomy. - Superled WSE with warm white (3000°K) progression light of 120 Lumens and 8 hours autonomy.
The Superled-3 SW assembly for Duo Petzl is intended to be used as main light. Its light is as intense and diffused as that one of acetylene! A special plate mounted in place of reflector contains Micro-zoom as depth light and 2 Superleds as diffused light for progression. The new switching regulator is simple and reliable. Superleds for progression, working in couple, optimize the electrical efficency. A set of 4 rechergeable NiMh - 2500 mAh batteries will now give us at least 12 hours of 120 Lumen light! If we dont' change batteries we will continue for other 18 hours with a decreasing light from 120 to 0 Lumen. No more batteries? You have other 48 hours of 0,5 Lumen light from microzoom! Micro-zoom provides a depth light of 5000 Candles with 10° light beam. Mounting: simply remove reflector and insert special connectors in place of lamps. Voltage: 6 Vcc. Progression current: 200 mA.Micro-zoom current: 400 mA. Power supply: Alkaline cells (AA) or rechargeable Ni-Mh. Medium life: 100.000 hours. No magnetic interference to the compass during surveys.
This model has the same caracteristics of "SW" with, in addition, 4 luminous levels for progression light. Level 1 - Progression1: 120 Lumen - 12 hours autonomy (4 AA alkaline cells) Level 2 - Emergency: 3 Lumen - 200 hours autonomy (4 AA alkaline cells) Level T - Mastrel-Test (pulse battery test) Level 3 - Maximum power: 300 Lumen - 3 hours autonomy (4 AA alkaline cells) Levels can be changed turning on - off progression light within 2 seconds. The Mastrel-Test can be done at every time without taking off the helmet and is optimized for alkaline cells. It consists in a sequence of luminous pulses varing from 0 to 10 depending to the state of batteries. I.e.: 10 pulses indicates 100% fully charged batteries, 6 pulses indicates 60% charge, 1 pulse 10% charge. It is recommended for testing at home illumination efficency before caving. In this case: - Turn on progression lights at Level 1 - Progression1 (120 Lumen) for at least 3 minutes before starting test. This is necessary for eliminating initial overvoltage that would give a wrong test (otherwise all batteries seem to be ok). - Switch to level T (Mastrel-Test). - If batteries are full charged the test should give at least 9 pulses for alkaline cells and 7 pulses for rechargeable Ni-Mh cells. Superled-3 SW4T In this model has been added new Progression2 level that provides 40 Lumen for anti-dazzle and smaller caves. Summary of lights: - Diffused light for progression      Level 1 - Progression1: 120 Lumen - 12 hours autonomy (4 AA alkaline cells)      Level 2 - Progression2: 40 Lumen - 40 hours autonomy (4 AA alkaline cells)      Level 3 - Emergency: 3 Lumen - 200 hours autonomy (4 AA alkaline cells)      Level T - Mastrel-Test (pulse battery test)      Level 4 - Maximum power: 300 Lumen - 3 hours autonomy (4 AA alkaline cells) - Depth light      Micro-zoom with 10° light beam and 5000 Candles intensity. Superled-3 SW2 This model has only 2 basic progression levels and battery test. Summary of lights: - Diffused light for progression      Level 1 - Progression1: 120 Lumen - 12 hours autonomy (4 AA alkaline cells)      Level 2 - Emergency: 3 Lumen - 200 hours autonomy (4 AA alkaline cells)      Level T - Mastrel-Test (pulse battery test) - Depth light      Micro-zoom with 10° light beam and 5000 Candles intensity. All Superled-3 family models are available in WSW (warm-white) version that gives a kind of light identical to the acetylene one. Warm-white Superled requires some more electrical power and must be considered about 20% reduction of autonomy. I.e.: Progression1 level medium autonomy will be 10 hours instead of 12.
Also availeable the hybrid Superled-3 HSW module. The hybrid light (4500° K) is a compromise from cold and warm lights but keeps the main advantages of both. Medium autonomy (progression level 1) is about 11 hours.
Ultra Compact Illuminator
Available now a four superled Ultra Compact Illluminator. It is used specifically for cave filming and photography. The reduced size and ease of use make it a versatile tool for every kind of cave. The sturdy aluminium body has only 65x100x35 mm dimensions and 200 gr weight. It requires 4 AA Ni-Mh cells that can be easily replaced opening the lateral vane. Autonomy is about 1 hour. The luminous power is 600 Lumen with color temperature from 5500 to 6000 °K. Light beam amplitutde is about 100°.
