Cell-Tank Tech maxi with switch-module and Iluminant-module LED 48/1


Switch-module

 

The lamp sets wreck-maxi (wreck-maxi HID-gasdischarge) and tech-maxi, have been specially designed and developed to meet the tough requirements of modern technical diving.
The power pack and the lamp head are two separate modules connected with a cable The units are particularly small and streamlined for easy handling and optimum rig configuration.
The electrical connection between lamp head and power pack is a specially welded, polyurethane cable, approx. 130cm (4 feet) in length.

Switch-Modul

The core of both lamps is the micro processor controlled switch.
The individual components of the switch-module are identical with those of the power tube lamp mini and medi.
The lamps have been pressure tested in pressure chambers to equivalent depths of over 500m (1650 feet).
  • The magnetic plunger which controls the lamps is completely independent of any mechanical connection to the inside of the housing.
  • A hall sensor, senses the movement of the switch and the resulting changes in a magnetic field.
  • The micro processor receives these signals and converts the commands into functional commands which change the brightness of the lamp to either 50%, 75%, 100% or 125% of full capacity. The deeper the switch is pressed, the brighter the light.
  • Using controlled over voltage, the series HLX halogen bulbs can produce more than 25% power above their normal rating.
  • The lamp has a discharge protection which shuts the electronics down when the cell voltage in each cell falls below 0.9V. thus protecting the cells from long term damage.
  • The lamp has a remaining burn time display and warns the user of the imminent shut down by flashing the main lamp 3 times.
  • Just before the lamp shuts down, it will blink continuously. If the lamp is turned on to a lower power setting, it will return to a continuous light.
  • The switch can be used to send Morse messages, or an automatic SOS Morse signal ( 3 x short, 3 x long, 3 x short) can be activated.
  • The mechanical transport lock ensures maximum safety and security when the lamp is not in use and/or in transit.
  • After removing the front cover of the lamp head, the halogen bulb is immediately accessible and can easily be replaced within seconds.
  • The switch-modul have two M6 thread for mounting on helmets or traditional hand grips (Goodman handle)







Switch-module with Illuminant-module Halogen

Illuminant-module:

Halogen-Illuminant

Halogen bulbs produce the complete spectrum of colours. The red tones are particularly well produced.
The HLX-Halogen bulbs used in our lamps are filled with xenon gas and are particularly effective in producing light. The bulbs have a life expectancy of approx. 100 hours. The colour temperature is approx. 3500K.
Halogen bulbs are however commonly available on the household/DIY market. These bulbs usually have a comparatively low effectiveness in producing light but therefore have an extended life efficiency of approx. 2000 hours.
Our 50W HLX-Halogen bulbs, powered with controlled over voltage has an equivalent light emmission to a 100W "DIY Bulb".

 

 

Halogen illuminant 3600K

Acceptable efficiency. Warm, red light with reduced penetration properties but excellent red colour reproduction.

Coral, sponges or fish radiate a very rich red colour.

For divers who wish to use their lamp for optimum colour reproduction in tropical waters

LED 69/7 (LED-R 69/7), LED 59/4, LED 48/1


LED-Illuminant

For the tech-light switch-module we offer interchangeable
LED-modules (beam characteristic: spot).
The functions of the lamp, such as power control, activation of the SOS distress signal, and remaining burn time warning as well as total discharge warning will be fully sustained.
The existing reflector unit is replaced by the appropriate LED module. After removal of the halogen illuminant the electric contact is established by plugging in an adapter plug into the socket.
The electronic is protected against reverse polarity of the adapter plug.

What are the advantages of an LED-light?
  • An LED has an extremely long life span. It is considerably longer than that of a halogen bulb.
  • The LED is hard to break and very durable.
  • The cold white (bluish) light of an LED is not as strongly absorbed by the water as the warm white (reddish) light of a halogen bulb. Therefore, underwater an LED light has a greater range.
  • Due to the individual perception (only in dark environments!), cold white LED light seems to be stronger than warm white halogen light .

    What are the disadvantages of an LED-light?

  • Fairly high costs of the LED and the necessary electronics.
  • Bad rendition of the red colour.

    Conclusion:

    We recommend the use of an LED-illuminant for night dives in freshwater, for dives in murky and cloudy water and for cave dives.
    Despite a rather low power consumption of the LED modules, a sufficient brightness and a considerable longer burn time is achieved.


LED-illuminant 6000K

High efficiency. Very cold, blue light with very good penetration properties but a very poor imaging of red colours.

For example; the reproduction of red colours with a gas discharge iluminant from Welch-Allyn (10/18/21/24W), is equivalent to the picture shown on the left with LED illuminant.

Corals, sponges or fish take on a reddish-brown tint similar to that of a house brick.



LED-R-illuminant with
Red-Light-Compansation
-NEW-

Good efficiency. Very cold, blue light with very good penetration properties and a good red colour reproduction.

Coral, sponges or fish radiate a rich red colour.

The best choice for divers who do not exclusively divie in fresh water and/or caves. The LED-R is available as a spot or a flood module for the mini & maxi compact LCD and for the Tech Lamps (LED-R 69/7). .

Switch-module with 10W HID Illuminant

 

 

Gas-discharge (HID) -Illuminant

Because of the mechanical sensitivity of the bulb no longer available

The lamp set wreck maxi gas discharge (HID) is equipped with
a 10 watt gas discharge element complete with the necessary ignition circuitry. The illumination produced from the element is equivalent to a 30 watt halogen bulb.
The colour temperature of the element is 6000°K and compared to a standard halogen bulb with 3500°K, it is a colder light.
The colour reproduction of red underwater, is therefore not as intensive as a halogen bulb. The penetration of the high blue content light is however extremely efficient and makes it ideal for fresh water diving activities.
There is no power adjustment feature on these lamps.

The micro processor which has been especially developed for this lamp, has a variety of monitoring and safety functions which control the condition of the circuitry including:
-Stabilising the flow of current and the service voltage during the entire operation.
-The gas discharge element can only be re-activated after at least 8 seconds of cooling down.
-The gas discharge element will only shut down after the minimum 8 second warming-up phase is completed.

Cell-Tank Wrack maxi



Cell-tank Tech maxi

Tank Wrack-maxi

Die Energieversorgung des Tanks Wrack-maxi erfolgt durch einen 14.4V NMH-Akkumulator mit 4.0Ah Kapazität.

If the cable which connects the power-pack and switch-module is removed, the two modules can be connected directly together and become a power tube lamp.

The power packs have M6 threads on each side providing various mounting possibilities.

A mounting plate is available as an accessory, with clips for mounting the power pack onto a diving cylinder.

Tank Tech-maxi

Die Energieversorgung des Akkutanks Tech-maxi erfolgt durch einen 14.4V NMH-Akkumulator mit 14,4 V / 4.5Ah Kapazität.

Optional for the tank tech-maxi we offer Lithium-Manganese-Cells (14,4V / 5,4 Ah).



The housings can be opened without the need for special tools. The housings are sealed with reliable large dimension precision
O-Rings ( 3.0mm, 50°).

Cell-Pack Wrack maxi

 

 

Cell-Pack

To charge the cell pack, or replace it with a spare cell pack, the front cover is simply unscrewed from the power pack. The modular system allows the cells to be replaced with a spare pack within seconds.
The lamps are powered by selected nickel metal hydride type A cells.


 



Cell-Pack Tech-maxi with Lithium-Mangan-Cells
Optional we offer Lithium-Manganese-Cells.

Since 2003 we took receipt of a newly developed
re-chargeable cell for test purposes, a lithium- manganese- cell. The electrode material is manganese sealed in a so called spinell rather than the traditional cobalt electrode.
The cells have proven themselves to be the "wonder cells" with the following properties:
  • Excellent power properties and resilience
  • Low self discharge, less than 3-8% per Month
  • At temperatures as low as -15°C (+5°F), the cells retain 95% capacity
  • A missing (defective) protection switch within the cell will reduce the capacity of the cell but will not produce an explosive reaction such as those previously mentioned in lithium ionen cells.
  • Mechanical damage such as a blow or squeezing, or even a puncture of the wall of the cell such as with a nail will not produce a critical chemical reaction within the cell.
  • For fully charged cells at high ambient temperatures, the aging process of these cells is considerably less than that in lithium ionen cells.
  • Another feature that must be mentioned is that aged lithium manganese cells do not produce dangerous hydrogen gas and therefore make re-charging in a sealed housing much safer and in our opinion only now possible.
    The only disadvantage of the lithium manganese cells is that the energy density is approx 10% less than lithium ionen cells. Compared to the nickel metal hydride cells, the lithium manganese cells have 30% higher energy density
