Andrúil halfway ramping flash mystery

My Lumintop EDC18 flashes halfway when I ramp up to maximum. All my other lights ramp up smooth with no flash when I ramp up to max. Is there something wrong with driver? firmware maybe?

Anduril has a flash when the driver changes channels from a single 7135 linear current regulator to a second channel with 7 for higher output. The flash is intentional for those that just want to run off the maximum output of a 7135. There should be a second flash when it reaches the maximum selected output on normal ramping.

The flashes can be disabled when compiled with that commented out

Whew! Thought something wrong with the light. Bugging me all night too Big Smile . But my other lights don’t flash halfwayish? Is that because theyr’re not 7135 based drivers??

So only way to enable it is to compile it? No click combo?

Yeah thanks for the 7135 channel switch info. Come to think of it I kinda like channel switch flash. Good to know when the power shifts. I might consider looking into getting the file and flashing now Smile .
