I would really like it if the ramp has an indication of when it goes from regulated to hybrid modes like the Emisar D4 standard UI. Or if there’s a pre-defined percentage indication in a leaflet that allows one to adjust the ramp ceiling to max regulated current, leaving turbo for full FET.

Would this be possible?

Nice! I’ve got a 219B triple board waiting for my FW3A.

I’ve been tempting fate with 219B emitters in a D4. I have the ramp ceiling turned way down and mostly use it on lower levels, but I’ve run it on turbo for a few seconds a handful of times. Party

Will the FET % be a compile option, or something you determine during testing? BTW, I’ll gladly send you a 219B sw45k R9080 triple board if you need/want one for your FW3A.

The FET percent is generally just a hardcoded thing. I’m just not sure yet what percent it should be. I’ll probably put in a few options which can be selected at compile time, and make the default build something relatively safe. I definitely can’t turn down a 219B triple board though; those are hard to get these days.

It’s too late to change the firmware now, but fortunately that function is already included. It has a brief blip in the ramp when it changes power channels.

About the actual ramp shape, those values are in the config file. They’re also in the user manual.

Can I call dibs on one more (total of 3) but only with samsung emitters (if they show up eventually)? Would it still be as part of the group buy?
Also, I’d really like to have an option to have the bunny on the switch Blushing

You can declare your intention here on the thread of how many lights you’ll want! When the interest list is updated, you’re name will be on it! Beer

Just checking on addition status. I added one more to the first one #1648 however have not seen a change on the interest list to two total. Just don’t want to miss out.

The list wasn’t updated yet!
If you go to the first page and check the list, always seek the last name on that +2000 names list.
If you click in the the last one you’ll see when the list was updated last time. Then you’ll only have to check/know when you made your request.
In this case, you’ve requested on the 16th March, but the list was only updated until the 11th March!

When ToyKeeper / FW3A Team has the time for it, the list will be updated Beer

Thanks MascaratumB for the info. As excited as I am I also have plenty of patience for this light especially considering all the brilliant people who have donated their time and expertise to this project.
