    Believe me, when the MR-X's are built, the first test is a LUX test [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

    Just completed a few MR-X turnkeys and thought I'd report on the lux readings.

    The lux readings were taken from a distance of 1m from the front of the reflector. The beam was focused to the narrowest point possible. The MR-X was set to 1.5A, running 6 x NiMh in a modified 6AAto2D battery holder. The light source: X3T binned 5-watter.

    Reading 1: 10,030 lux
    Reading 2: 10,130 lux
    Reading 3: 10,080 lux
    Reading 4: 10,050 lux

    The 10,000 lux barrier has been broken using a WHITE 5w Luxeon LED!!!

    BTW, the beam was also WHITE. PURE WHITE.

    **EDIT: lux readings corrected. 4 digit only.

    Yes Branny, one of the three is yours [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] A black MR-X. PM sent.

    Holy Schnikees, that's one hot beam (pun intended). I have to get on the horn and see what I can drum up. Maybe just a quick "need good 5W LS" post just won't do.

    Now I would like to be the first to ask for BEAM SHOTS! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grinser2.gif[/img]

    Does anybody know what 10,000 lux would compare to incandescent say like M3 with MN11 HOLA, US, Tigerlight, SRTH with N2......

    hi beretta... beam shots from the MR-X would be the same as those from a SNII. It is just so intense that all you see is a white circular area on your screen.

    toneloe... I don't know but I am sure someone will be able to chip in here on that.

    Ooh Man! Very nice. I could never get a reading past 9,999 lux because that's as high as my meter goes. May have to ditch the LightMan LM631 in anticipation of everyone getting X-binned Luxeons eventually -- hey Howie, what kind of meter are you using?

    Mr B... It is a DSE (local manufacturer) model Q1400. This is the same meter that I used to measure the Arc LS, my SNII, 3AA, etc... Measures up to 50,000 lux.

    Shankus... An open Paypal... cool. Can I fill in the amount [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

    Lighthouse... This LS is from the same vintage as the other 5-watters you have seen, rated at 1000hrs.

    Howie, thanks. Is there a U.S. distributor? Reason is the ones here (with 5 digit readotus) are all getting up into the rather pricey range, the LM631 I bought was under a hundred bucks, but the next one up the scale at that time was around $500...!

    Mr B, my meter has a 4 digit range but can measure to 50000 lux. Lux figures for the X3T have been fixed up in the post above. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img] I just went to the store's site (www.dse.com.au) and they have a nice and cheap one currently. It measures Lux and CP (candlepower)!!! Mine is different to that one. If you want me to get one for you, email me.

    So, do you think that 6 months from now, or a year, these X3T or similar 5 watters will be more available?

    I sure hope so!

    It is very difficult NOT to say "I WANT ONE OF THESE!"

    I see one of these in a McModule, or a 3 cell, M6 mod, Direct Drive Mr bulk McModule.

    Wow, I think I would be done buying lights for a while!!!

    NAAAAAA! There is always something else to buy!

    Well, if you find a source large enough, I am sure that you realise that you could sell them ALL here!

    In time, one would hope X's would be as common as the U's are now. But for now, they are *almost* impossible to obtain. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    Well well... impossible?? I believe there will be some more "X" mods coming out shortly. Just got wind that someone (not me) snatched up a nice batch of X3Ts. I wonder who it will be?

    Alan... Wrong thread. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img] This is the thread.

    Isaac... All I can quote you is 120 lm, as per the spec sheet. I don't have the necessary equipment to measure lumens. ***EDIT. Oh, please see Phaserburn's post (3 down). I didn't have the flux scale handy.

    Ledmodman... Hmmm... I am sure when they are ready, they will spring it upon us [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

    Right, but as certain bin flux P make xlumens and bin Q makes xlumens, etc.. I forget what letters the spec sheets go up to. I don't even think R or S or X is listed??

    Hotbeam, IsaacHayes, allow me... from the Lumiled spec sheet. It's only weeeelllll over 100% increase from U to X bin... nothing to see here, move along...

    U - 87.4 to 113.6 lumens
    V - 113.6 to 147.7 lumens
    W - 147.7 to 192.0 lumens
    X - 192.0 to 249.6 lumens

    LedmodMan, as you might wonder why I have this info on tap for just such an occasion, and to answer your question... I do have one of these en route!

    Phaser,
    I have both the new and old Luxeon binning spec .pdf sheets on my hard drive at work, so I understand completely.

    My ultimate goal - A XXoT or XXoU bin 5W for the Hotlips MR.

    So did you mean you have one of the Hotlips TK enroute, or one of the "top secret" X3T's we haven't heard about yet?

    Hotbeam,
    I have a USA Dept of Defense "Secret" security clearance, so you can PM me with the contact info. for the next batch of X3T's and I'll keep it hush-hush. Thanks. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/thumbsup.gif[/img]
