    Thumbs up SPY 007 levels and measurements

    Hi all,

    Since an LED efficiency decreases when the power goes up, I knew that level 5 (500mA) would not be exactly half the luminous flux of level 6 (1000mA). Same for level 4 not being half of level 5 etc... they would be a bit more than 50%.

    So I went on an measured all my levels using a stupid integrating ceiling method, which BTW gives pretty consistent results especially when measuring the same light output at different settings.

    Here are my results, taking level 6 as a 100% reference. The light was powered by two Energizer CR123 batts. I performed a reset of the light before, so all the levels are stock.

    Level 1 : 0,4%
    Level 2 : 4,5%
    Level 3 : 15%
    Level 4 : 35%
    Level 5 : 62%
    Level 6 : 100%

    As a comparison, I mesured my UX0K Ti-PD under the same conditions :
    Low : 1,7%
    High : 32%

    If I assume level 6 produce 240 lumens at the emitter, and 170 lumens out of the front (30% of light lost in reflector and glass...) here are the numbers of all levels.

    Level 1 : 0,7 lumens
    Level 2 : 8 lumens
    Level 3 : 26 lumens
    Level 4 : 60 lumens
    Level 5 : 105 lumens
    Level 6 : 170 lumens
    Ti-PD Low : 2,9 lumens
    Ti-PD High : 55 lumens

    That's all folks! Just thought I could shame these numbers.

    If anyone has other measurements or comments about the SPY 007 levels, please share here!

    cheers!

    Thanks for those numbers Tino, very interesting.

    Great that you can get more at 250ma (level 4) with the SSC-P4
    than at 500ma with the UXOK.

    In those days the output on high of the luxeon PDs was still more than
    adequate for most tasks.
    We are all flotsam and jetsam being carried by a relentless tide towards our ultimate fate!
