Introducing .......... \

sephiroth016fc.jpg


This project have been an extremely long journey. I had made designed it out in my head back in February. However, due to timing, parts availability, and work (real) priorities, I have been pushing it back further and further.

Yesterday, while CroMagnet was working modding his JIL Rev, I took the time trying to start and finish this project. Originally I planned to use a miniturize fan for active cooling but after there was about 2 feet of 24G wires stuff in that thing. The fan will just have to wait til I can get my hands on a small grille or fabricate my own. And I also ran out of UCL since Tony got the last one for his father's 3W-DD.

This light is fully regulated and it's dimmable down to barely on at 0.2W (??? 10 lm ???) to max power at 27W (650 lm). This is only the third Mag2D that will get to stay at my house as a permanent resident /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif. The first is a Mag2HID so guess what the second one is /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif

=== "Sephiroth" Specs ===
344g | 12.2oz w/o batteries
435g | 15.4oz with batteries
Power consumption: 0.2 -> 27.5 Watts
Runtime: 40 -> 200 minutes
Max Light Output: 650 lumens

=== "Sephiroth" Parts List ===
Spash Blue Mag2D (yes stock!)
2x FatMan driver (latest version)
1x dual channel analog pot
1x nFlex driver
1x punny momentary switch
1x Modified PQS-D heatsink
1x Luxeon V WX1S
6x Luxeon III TY0H
7x IMS SO17XA reflectors
1x Ultra-Void len
1x 8AA-2D battery adapter
1x Dummy AA cell
7x Energizer 2500mAh NiMh

Just couple beamshots for now. Diner's calling.


"Sephiroth" dis-assembled.


"Sephiroth" on Low ... "Sephiroth" on High
Canon A80 | Manual | ISO100 | Shutter 1/2000s | Aperature F5.0 | Auto White balance
This is the lowest shutter speed my little camera will do.

SICK!! THREE regulators in one light, seven Luxeons? /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/faint.gif

And the honor of building the most outrageous Luxeon cannon for 2005 goes to modamag... /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/bowdown.gif /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/huh.gif /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/bowdown.gif

Re: Introducting .......... \"Sephiroth\"

Thanks guys for the kind words. This is my "second to last" mod til the big project start.

icarus: Thanx for the proof read. Original post editted.
jaids: This light have three different zone each of which is controlled by one of the drivers. The fatmans controls the upper and lower zone of the outer ring of 6x TY0H LuxIII. The center piece WX1S LuxV is controlled by the nFlex driver.

Freddy, it's no secret.

Here's my "final CPF" mod for this year.


And here's the big project which is currently in assembly process. All the fine tunning and modding will start in December 2005.

Re: Introducting .......... \"Sephiroth\"

Is the baby an "nflex" or a "fatman"? /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grinser2.gif

If she is an "nflex" are you going to name here "Maggie"?? /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/sssh.gif

Congrats!!

Les

Re: Introducting .......... \"Sephiroth\"

Congratulations on your "big" project. I have a 19th month old girl and a boy on the way - I can tell you from experience that these "projects" will be the most rewarding of them all /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif
