Sweet. Looks like they came out more or less as intended!

Thanks for posting the pics.

Still fine, still on a break. One day I’ll catch up with you folks! previous wight catchup Wink

Wasn’t it said somewhere that 7135’s won’t go as low? If you go for a real low moon they act up? And also something about the PWM rate? Might check that out as well. Sorry I don’t have more pertinent information, but I am not using anything it pertains to and well, my memory is kept in a minnow bucket with oversized flow holes.
Yeah…I think it was my compile, I didn’t change the location of the ramping in the code and I used fast PWM

Cereal_killer did a few video’s for me on the next re-compile and it looked as if it worked on his builds, ramping was clean and worked as compiled
(if he want’s he can post links) It’s a SK68 with 100% variable modes w/ memory

I just have to rebuld my driver and give it a shot, using the slow PWM he reported it ramped smoothly (fast PWM went all wonky)

Way cool!

A little cleanup of the inner tabs and a few shots of solder and BLAMO…instant 22mm Nanjg…NICE!

I made a 3xAA in series battery-holder, using the Oshpark boards mentioned in the OP, and did some tests on it, thread here:

hi RBD, this battery-carrier is therefore no longer untested, so the the OP might be updated for these triple AA boards??

I was hoping the added height would make it so I could use a normal size spring in this balder SE2 but not quite.

WORK IN PROGRESS: "Medusa" SRK Replacement PCB: http://oshpark.com/shared_projects/NuBPKgTp

Complete all in one package replacement PCB for SRK style lights. Not sure why I'm posting this. Maybe someone else will be interested in trying it out. I figure it'd look cool having the electronics all exposed in the face of the lights, and multiple different lights for different uses. 

You will have to use the stock driver PCB as a dummy contact board. Highly recommended to add a heat sink to the rear of this board. Given the height of the topics chosen this board could be stacked on top of aluminum or similar to bring the optics closer to the SRK lens.

  • 4 XP footprint emitters driven via 70N02 FET through Carclo 24mm quad optic (board pre-drilled for this optic).
  • Single XP footprint emitters driven via IRLML2502 FET through Ledil Lisa 2 optic (board pre-drilled for this optic).
  • 3 XQ footprint emitters driven via 2x7135 regulators per LED. XML Reflector 12mm in diameter (no mount holes for a reflector).
  • There are two LED+ (BATT+) connections on the board but they are electrically the same. I just couldn't get the traces down for one solder point so had to split it. Both LED+ pads connect to BATT+.
  • MLCR doubles as the SW+ pad.

Controlled via PIC16F1825 in TSSOP-14 package. Debug/programming points included. Designed to use ttrev3's MLEDv2 firmware without modificationhttp://tterev3.blogspot.com.au/2014/04/meld-v2.html

I had a link to the firmware but cannot find it right now. The single XP emitter is connected as if it were the UV emitter, while the quad XP emitters are connected as if they were the white emitter in the WRGB array of the original. Red, green, and blue are all connected as normal. 

I plan on using a medium flood optics with 4 nichia 219 emitters for the quad, dedomed cool-white XP-E for the single emitters for throw, and then regular XQ R,G,B for the reflector.

Should be a versatile light for camping. I was going to use a UV emitter in place of the single emitter but I couldn't find a reliable source for a cheap UV emitter. That and I think throw will be more useful.

Nice! Good idea. Just this weekend I was reflecting on how useful it would be if more electronics could be easily exposed in a custom light without complete disassembly. Replacing or building a driver is something that we try to explain to muggles, but if you can show then a PCB with components on it, that makes the explanation much easier. Right this moment I don’t remember exactly what my idea was, but it wasn’t as cool as this one…

Chris are you able to post a short video showing the issue? It sounds like what I have but not sure. Also is this with a clicky or momentary setup that gives you issues (or it doesnt matter, it does it with both randomly)? The biggest similar issue I've had is when I tried to use a stock FET I pulled out of an M6, it cleared up when I swapped it out for a 70N02 however I know the M6 FET's work when left on their own board but controlled by a ATTiny13A on a piggy backed board, strange...

When you piggyback on to the M6 board you are using the 7136s to supply the current to the FET gate, instead of driving them directly like we do the 70N02.

UV can be very useful camping and exploring. Minerals light up in pinks, yellows and blues, scorpions light up pale yellow. Lots of cool things with UV but not much throw and as you noticed, not easily sourced. Very neat project. I hope someone puts it together and posts pictures.

I have the PERFECT heatsink for this

Bond that board to that copper round with alot of solder paste stuffed down in the vias! (well with a few holes drilled to make sure the batt+ didn’t ground out by accident Wink

Regarding the 12.2mm tactical switch by Helios, how do I incorporate this effectively in a switch for a light that takes 18350’s etc.? I suspect that it is more complex than a simple swap. I am trying to make a light that can use the Star firmware in the version RMM did with the double click to strobe and the switch is my sticking point.

Helios' switch board is just a thing to mount a pushbutton on one side and wires (or header pins) on the other. Meant as a direct replacement for SRK-style lights.

Adding a side switch to a light that didn't originally come with one is a much trickier project. You need a pocket for the switch PCB to sit in, and then a button on top and an outer bezel to retain it all in the light.

I’m traveling right now, so I can’t measure but I was imagining that I might be able to remove the clickie from a solarforce or similar and measure the diameter of the board it’s on and tweak the gerber file to that diameter, order, solder and replace. Would that work?

The tactile switch board is meant for side button use. Would not work for tail clickies. I can change the diameter for you.

This RMM driver (double click for strobe) is meant for side button, right?

I’m afraid something different would have to be done for tail clickies.

I know I missed this somewhere? Where does the 130 or 100 ohm resistor go on the BLF17DD rev 2 to 4? Marked R3 or marked R4? There's no definite source to find out? Thought the assignment used to be on the OSHPark page for BLF17DD but it's not there. Richard's website has conflicting info - doesn't list it where he lists the parts assigned to the board, then does include a 100 ohm resistor in the kit -- but doesn't say where it goes?

If it does go in the R3 spot (guessing), then does the R4 spot have to be jumpered?

** wish there was a way to search within a thread, or at least get search results to link to a post. These large threads are a total PIA... If someone knows, please don't use post links -- just a post #...

Edit: Crap! think I answered my own questions by tracing the routes on the BLF17DD -- should be on R3, and looks like R4 is not necessarry to jumper out. Someone please confirm?

This is my first BLF17DD (I got 6) - think I'll take detailed pics when it's all tested...

Your correct, R3 is 130 (gate) and R4 is the pull down and can be left open. R3 if not used has to be jumpered.

You would need to make it so the batt is always connected and have to run a wire to the tail switch (which would go to MCU pin2, pressing the bottom would cause a short to ground).

You could also get a nitecore piston drive host (like my D10) to use momentary FW with a tail mounted “click” switch. If you did want to go that route I have THE board for you.

I built this, it is the V2, if it worked fine before I tried the v1;) 

I uploaded the file eagle (sometimes no matter oshpark well all) maybe I should upload gerber files; 

 

If you want you can improve PCB;)

OMG!! Built up a couple of BLF17DD (V2's I think??), put one in a SupFire L6 (C8 size head/reflector but uses a 26650). Wow, just wow! 1,462 OTF (I measured) from a XM-L2 T6 4C. I think I'm loving this tint... A KK 4200 gets 5.7A, a Powerizer gets 6.2A, LG HE2 gets 6.15A, and 6.05A for a Sam 25R.

The heat sinking is done up well (SinkPAD - GC Extreme - screwed down the SinkPAD - 1.5mm copper disc soldered to a brass pill top - thermal/electrically conducted greas on the pill threads), it sure gets hot in a hurry, so the heat sinking is working.

The V1 was wrong The printing on the + and - 

and the size of the PCB was 12, now it is 16mm 

 

The V2 is tested and it is ok.

Same light with the same driver and an XP-G2 S2 2B has some nice throw, nice tint, pretty awesome at 4.66A, 943 lumens…emitter is domed. Those “copper” (brass) pills that I got with the light are threaded wrong, thought about forcing one in and brute force changing the threads on something but ended up leaving the aluminum pill in. Still get’s hot quite fast. Not so bad as the harder driven XM-L2 though.

I used this: fasttech-C8-pill, but it's been out of stock forever. It's a standard brass pill for C8's, also sold here: lck-led-brass-pill. The copper C8 pills from VOB also fit (I threaded it in fine), but again had a lower height. The SupFire L6 aluminum pill had an o-ring to elevate the LED/star, like they designed the body or pill wrong. With the brass pill, I left out the o-ring and used a copper shim bought here to elevate the SinkPAD.
