So, since LH351D well-binned ordering options are quickly evaporating + reports of their beam profile maybe not being ideal is there any chance the LH351C or SST-20 could be considered instead? At least down the road if a source for below BBL 351Ds isn’t found?

I know the first test of the HCRI 4000K SST-20s in the PL47 shows they are from a bin that’s below BBL.

It should probably be mentioned that BlueSwordM is talking to Digikey independently, and Neal seems to have already ordered from a different supplier weeks ago.

Help is always welcome. Smile

I just don’t want people to get confused about FW3A project status. As far as I’m aware, emitters are already taken care of.

The BLF list was updated 3 days ago. It does not update itself though; I have to do that manually.

I’ll try to clarify that next time I update it. The “automatically generated” part is true, but it means a script takes a very long list of posts as input, and then generates the list seen in comment #4. So the request numbers are not particularly meaningful, and are simply a side effect of the order requests happen. Request numbers aren’t guaranteed, because if I find any errors in the list, or if anyone cancels their requests, all the numbers afterward will change. There is no “Bob cancelled request #123, so can I have that spot?” because it’ll move everyone one number lower instead.

The update process is:

  • Run a script to download new posts since the last run.
  • Run a script to display new posts one at a time so I can manually categorize each one.
  • Manually copy that list to the link above.
  • Run a script to convert the full post list into a human-friendly interest list.
  • Manually copy the human-friendly version to comment #4.

So a lot of it is automated, but it’s not fully automatic.

Production & ship date unknown. But getting closer each day. Thumbs Up
Post #1 says $36 for XP-L HI & $30 for Samsung
Final features will be pretty much those discussed in post #1.

My light had better be a CoolNeutralWarm White combo!

Nope, as long as it is a ‘Cool Neutral’ – True Neutral Whitetm XP-L HI below the BBL….. it is not important at all. Wink

I just thought of something...

This light is a triple.

There could be one emitter that's CW, one that's NW, and one that's WW.

Completely not worth doing, but it'll be the perfect tint!

If I ever get the answer to that question, I’ll be sure to post about it.
