Primary Lights – Test

Primary Light

Key Primary Light Features

  • New model design considers past design to provide an update path with past UWLD generations of products
  • Electronics integration; older models are compatible with newer model electronics, whenever design parameters allow
  • No moving parts to fail or leak
  • Single button control of both on/off and light levels
  • Not affected by depth, same pressure on switch to operate it
  • No moving parts to be affected by sand and grit improving reliability
  • Eliminates one of the most common failure points
  • Latch less system is stronger and more reliable than conventional latches
  • Allows multiple O-rings to be used for redundancy
  • System does not use a thread which causes a twisting motion on the O-ring and is a common cause of seal failures
  • The thread less design eliminates the possibility of cross threading
  • Convienence; simply plug in to charge without having to remove the canister cap
  • Less wear and tear on connectors & O-rings
  • Reduces the opportunity of flooding
  • The primary lights flash six times then turns down to low allowing time to end the dive before the battery reaches the shut off point
  • Primary lights turn on at the high level then cycle to low, medium, then back to high with a simple press and release
  • Multiple canister cap options allow for versatility
  • Stack cap allows multiple devices to be used on one canister
  • Blanking caps allow the stack cap to be used as a single
  • Dual cap allows two devices to be used on one canister
  • Ability to quickly change out battery canisters and/or canister size
  • Both top and bottom glass O-rings seal against water intrusion
  • All penetrations have a secondary sealing method for redundancy
  • Multiple O-rings on the canister cap and other components for redundancy
  • A uniform tight, full beam without hot spots, balancing the need for signaling and peripheral vision in the under water environment
  • Light patterns change underwater; dive lights can only be accurately compared when submerged in the environment in which they will be used
  • Our optics are designed for under water exploration
  • With redundancy (excludes mini), packs have separate power control boards (PCB’s) to keep light running even if a board or pack fails
  • Internal temperature sensing, if limit is reached, the lights will turn power down to low, all lights can be used out of the water on low
  • Locks out the piezo switch from incidental light activation when light is stowed
  • Cover clips onto the bottom of the light so it won’t be lost & is available during the dive
  • Optimized battery cell and PCB configuration allowing for a smaller canister
  • Light heads are optimized without wasted space for both heat sinking and size
  • All battery packs are certified safe
  • All battery packs are within watt hour limitations for air travel
  • All design & engineering is performed in house to rigorous standards
  • Solid Works is utilized for optimization of all designs including heat dissipation
  • In house testing results in considerable performance gain through design improvements towards heat sinking
  • Reduces damage and abrasion to cord
  • Cover will show damage or abrasion before reaching the cord saving costly repairs from water intrusion due to a cut or damaged cord
  • Using a clean design slate allows us to develop innovative new products
  • We use Solid Works for all of our in house CAD design
  • We develop our own firmware instead of using “off the shelf” drivers so we don’t have unwanted features such as strobe or SOS modes
  • We engineer our products in house to minimize EMI and other common issues from using electronics under water
  • Building our own light modules allows us to uses the most current LED’s and have very high quality control
