Thread: Emisar/Noctigon KR4, KR1, D4v2 output and tint measurements

  1. #1

    Default Emisar/Noctigon KR4, KR1, D4v2 output and tint measurements

    Output tested using Texas Ace Lumen Tube calibrated with Maukka lights at 2 seconds. Light quality measured using Sekonic C-800-U.

    The E21A 4500K is just as rosy as the 219B sw45K but with cooler tint. It is a very beautiful tint but I think mixing it with 8x4500K with 8x3500K will result in somewhere near 4300K, which would be more idea. Also the E21A 4500k does not reach 9080.


    The E21A 2200K is much rosier than I expected. The 2200K batch that Clemence had was on the BBL. This batch is much nicer IMO and exceeded my expectations. Because of the negative duv, it doesn't take long for your eyes to adapt because it doesn't look overly yellow. The 2200K tint is similar to a beautiful sunset whereas the E21A 2000K that Clemence sells look like candle light.

    Also pay attention to how much output the bezel kills on the mule lights. Even the color of the bezel (stainless steel vs dark gray) makes a big difference in output. I think Hank should use white mcpcb for the mules to reflect as much light as possible to minimize output loss.

    The D4v2 TI with the 16x E21A 2200K is the only light with a loud electronic whining noise on turbo and it smokes as if there's a fire burning. At first I thought it might be moisture that its burning but the smoke doesn't stop and it sure doesn't smell like water. I wonder what is the cause. I don't get this on the KR4 16x E21A 4500K mule or any of the other Hank lights. Anyone have this experience?

    I've got a green D1, grey D1S, a cyan D4V1 and a gold D4V2 and just wanted to share.

    How are these 16x arranged on the mcpcb? Could you please make a photo?

    I have a sneaking suspicion it is because it is not compatible with being a mule. Put it in a reflector where all of the parts of the beam contribute to the output I bet it does reach R9080.

    They're all arranged in one big circle along the outer edge.

    What mcpcb did you use?

    The Noctigon KR4 mule and Emisar D4 mule each come with a custom mcpcb produced by the manufacturer of the light.

    Mules always have issues around the outside edge of the beam.
    Sometimes it is the pedals that form around the beam or lack of beam focus gives a washed out look on low power.
    I have imagined a outer optic that could reflect misguided light around the edge out the front.
    I am lacking the skills to develop this,but a concave mirror ring that plugged in under the lense could help mules even out the
    beam around the edges.
    It would be nice if something so simple could help.

    Sorry for so many questions but I cant find such an offering on their web site, the only mule config they list is 8x 3535. How did you order your 16x e21a mules?

    For now you have to ask Hank via email. Price is +$20 over the 4xE21A. ~3K lumens, 7.5A constant current driver.
