Thread: FS: 5,000 lumen E seires Aleph head light engines.

    Arrow FS: 5,000 lumen E seires Aleph head light engines.

    Hi all,

    Finally getting this together. These engines are a spin off the one I build here for AndyF a while back.





    The original engine was XP, but the new ones will be XML2 or XHP-50 as shown here.




    Beam profile of the XML2 is a fairly long thrower for a multi emitter setup.



    The XHP-50 is wider but still got range because of the massive volume of light output.




    This will be a group buy/presale. As a result I am attempting to offer as much of a break on price as possible, especially on multi engine purchase. Multiple colors of each emitter type will be added and there will be a break in price for all additional engines of any type. In addition to this you can stack on the every day use cpf6 code for an additional discount on top of that.



    Lead times will be about 3-4 weeks on this project. While it is possible I may purchase a few extra of these for the store myself, stock will primarily be limited to what is purchased now on the preorder. Also since Aleph heads are more scarce than say their P60 counter parts this may well be the ONLY run of them. So if you think you will want more than one NOW is the time



    Here is the link for purchase of the engines. If you have any questions please feel free to ask in the thread.

    Thanks all!

    These basically screw in like an Aleph E-can, no tools needed, except from the window side ?

    And what are the max currents for the two emitter options ?

    Will a standard McClickie be ok, or will the springs melt ?

    Correct, no tools will be needed, its a thread in pill. Using an IMR 18650 on the XML2 version you could see as much as 6 amps. Using a pair of IMR 18650s on the XHP-50 version I would think as much as 10. The McClicike should be ok on the XML2 version, but I have not done that much testing with that particular switch. If using a clickie of any type on the XHP-50 model I would suggest using IMR 18350s to lower the current to around 4-5 amps.

    Would it be possible to measure the current on the XHP-50 with 2x18350 and 2x16340 (IMR) ?

    I'd rather not go over 5A max.

    Just now I did a bench test. With the McClickie in the circuit I got 5.05A on full cells. With no switch I got 7.29A.

    Did the test like this with my clamp meter

    Still interested in a 3 X XPL-Hi L.E. for a combination of throw and power.

    Any chance you could make one?

    In layman's terms, "theory" means an idea. However "scientific theory" is fact because it requires proof.

    VOB, any chances those would fit in a Haiku?

    Str8, not these ones, these are intended for the old Aleph-3 head which takes a 38mm lens. The Haiku takes a 22mm lens.

    Sure, I could add an XPL HI option. Do you have a rough idea what color temp you'd like?

    Thank you. I figured as much when I didn't see the Haiku mentioned. I was kinda hoping, I guess I should say dreaming of a Haiku version. How cool would that be???

    Thanks, my preferred color temp is around 4500K if possible.

    I have found a couple of fairly high bin options, but neither are exactly 4500k. I found U6 bin 5A3, and V2 bin 3D.

    Sold. In order to even get these made at all I need to order a minimum of 25pc which is still considered a very small batch. Most often 50pc or more is preferred by the manufacturer. Since I have committed to the build and started taking payment we will absolutely be doing this even if it means I end up with 10+ piece for "personal use"

    One more thing I just realized. Originally one of the tints listed for XHP was 4000K 5D2, but its actually 4000k 5B for that emitter. It is changed on the site now, but not before a couple orders were placed. If this is a huge thorn in anyone side shoot me a PM and I will see if I can come up with anything else. Thanks again all..

    Although it will probably be obvious during installation, does the optic fit under the lens, or does it replace the A3 lens ?

    EDIT - Never mind, I went back to the original build thread and see that the lens is retained over the new optic. Thanks !

    Apparently, there is still room for the o-ring too to provide a water-resistant seal. I'm assuming that this can either be fitted between the optic and the glass window or after the glass window but before the retaining ring but I'm not sure which way round? Maybe Matt can confirm this?
