The RX2 LED debuts this week at DEMA. One of the most exciting features on the light is the switching mechanism. We have designed a rotary magnetic switch on the head; the switching is integrated into the board for stability and function. Full and half power modes are at your fingertips, no reaching for a canister switch. This allows multiple mounting options for the diver. The two previous blog entries give some ideas.
This light represents the latest in LED lighting innovation. The RX2 is the product of months of development with US-based companies and all production is made in USA. Our design team engineered the product and feature set – this light is not a “me to” product from a Chinese supplier. The LED boards are the latest in technology and RoHS compliant for European standards. The new polymer boards dissipate head better than conventional boards so we have over 93% efficiency with power consumption to light output. This means we were able to give you more light using the same battery power source as its predecessor the LUX while maintaining the 4 hour burn time at full power.
