The light "R2X OSTAR" (Temporary
name) was designed for OSRAM Japan's presentation on CEATEC
Japan abs other places in Europe. (Semiconductor trade show held in near Tokyo
Oct 2nd to 6th 2007 as far as I know.)
factory had done ALL design works of the light. Engineering
drawing, 3D CAD, 3D Rendering, converter design, conveter
from the board and programing. First proto was
machined by Beta Titanium. Then, Mr. Chris Orgaz of TNC machined
all the parts of the light from Alcoa's Aerospace grade
6061 T-651 Al for the show in much better quality. (12 Alminum parts and 1 plastic
part on one light!)
This TNC (Ogaz Enterprises) version is
perfect finsih as designer's drwaing, with 6061 T651 Aluminum.
fee for the entire one flashlight was aprox $3.000 or even more.
The machining cost above does not include
OSTAR, all hand made electronics, all engineering fees include
CAD design fee, programing fee and assembling fee.
LED : OSRAM's OSTAR LE UW E3B, bin : QY 5D (Measured approx
950lm@700mA, approx 1,200lm at 1.0A)
The brightest quality LED in the world.
Then, only three QZ rank came from the safe of OSRAM HQ's labo.
Only Two were made with these QZ rank.
This light was made as 1,200lm LE UW E3B QZ rank
light at boot mode. (Requires programing option. for the safety on presentations in the wold, it is limited to approximately 800mA. NOT 1.0-1.2A.
Output : 4 modes plus strobes : (The program can be modified
based on requeste. Exp. memory fubction, accurate temperature
monitor, or "High" start as possible.)
Default setting from Off is :
--Click at first Blink, second, third, 4th, or 5th blinks calls
diffrent strobes in the chip.
Exp : Click at first blink calls 10Hz strobe The converter has heat sensor that prevent
damage or thermal shut down. Boost mode will reduce current
to half, then one quarter when converter's temperature
exceed approx 80 celsius. Current will back to boost when
converter's temperature drops.
The control chip is prtected and the program will
be destroyed in case the electrobnics disassembled.
- The warranty shal be teminated if the light was disassembled.
- Please contact imediately in case the light does not work
Recommended highest output
is 350mA mode is approx 400-420 Torch lumen and consume
less than 8 watt at entire light from four batteries. CR123
has long runtime at less than 2.1watt consumption on each
battery and will drop drasticaly more than 2.2-2.3 watt.Highest output is 800+ Torch lumen. ( IF
my light box is accurate, and....)
It should be 840 torch lumen if Nova Tac's dealer sample
that calibrated at 120 torch lumen was accurate.
It should be 863 Torch Lumen if early under driven LEW E3B
light measured by Ocean Optics was 249.3 torch lumem.
Great thanks to "fixer" of ROF factory
and Chris of TNC.
Chris machined 13 types *10 sets bosy and choose 6 sets only.
He finished this hard work in 3 and half weeks!
