    Default Programmable Light User Guides and Flowcharts

    I thought it might be helpful to pull together the threads that provide instruction manuals and/or flow charts on some of the more complex programmable lights available nowadays. These instructions are often MUCH easier to use than the instructions that come with the lights.

    Note: Per Henry, all of HDS' manuals below have been updated to reflect the latest improvements in the UI. The major update in the UI was made in July 2009. HDS is currently in the process of revising the product names to focus on the HDS Systems name:

    Here's the official Ra Twisty Customization page, from HDS/Ra Lights.

    http://www.ralights.com/?id=TwistyCustomize


    Some people find the instructions a bit hard to follow, while myself and others seem to get it on the first try.. There hasn't been a CPF user guide of the Twisty programming method that explains it in a flow chart type fashion, but it seems easy enough to do if necessary.

    You should also add LLCoolBean's Novatac T and E to P method.

    Excellent idea, Illumination! It is very useful to pull all this information together into 1 reference thread.

    I'm sticking it at the top of the page.
    Resistance is futile...

    Thanks guys for the vote of confidence. These programmable lights can be pretty confusing so the help of others on CPF becomes all the more important.

    Please feel free to point me to other threads to add.

    Thanks.

    Great idea -- anyone considering buying one of those lights can check out the programming and " yeah I think I can handle that"

    Another one of Goldserve's boards, the buck/boost Piglet driver (similar to FLuPIC UI but slightly different operation).

    I think LF2X (and LF2) has the same UI of the ArcMania MJP Extreme III, so you could use the link posted by xcel730 some posts ago:

    I'm not sure if the ArcMania MJP Extreme III is the same of the LF2X in everything (I knew you had to rotate a quarter turn from P1 to P2 in the LF2X but in this link they say 180° (half turn) )

    Correct me if I'm wrong.

    This will be an excellent reference once my lights come in Photon Proton Pro and Nite Core D10. I'll probably be ordering a LF3XT or LF5XT soon, and perhaps the Novatec EDC 120W or E.
