How long pause do you make between the first and second click in point 3 – “click + click and hold for 3 seconds”?
If it’s too short, the clicks are interpreted as double click => max ramp and the subsequent hold decreases brightness towards floor (single hold pressed quickly after reaching ceiling decreases brightness).
Depending on the “rhythm” of this sequence, you can get the expected behavior, or the behavior described as “actual”, or reach the strobes…

Oh alright, I was doing it very fast. I remember getting the expected behavior pretty much everytime. I’ll now try waiting between the clicks a bit longer.

Hi JiggyJinjo. I’ll explain, I hope, how Anduril works according to what you’ve written.
1) Set the automatic memory
2) Set the brightness to about half
3) Turn off the torch.
Now this happens
1) If you make a click from off and immediately after click and hold, it is normal for the torch to go up and then start to go down.
2) Turn on the torch, wait a little and then immediately click twice and hold the second click, the flashlight starts to go down from the set level, as you yourself have verified. So, if I understand correctly, the behavior of your torch is normal. Have a nice day, Riccardo.

Hello, I have a weird behavior with Anduril since I put a 30A VTC6 inside my FW3A. Here are the steps to reproduce :

1 Set memory to automatic, turn the light on and set the brightness to about half (with either stepped or smooth ramp)
2 click to turn the light off
3 click + click and hold for 3 seconds

Expected behavior :The light should start on your last brightness set in step 1 and decrease to floor.
Actual behavior : light starts at ceiling or turbo and decreases to floor.

This behavior only happens when the light is started from off. Doing step 3 when the light is already ON yields the expected behavior

Here is the intended behavior from off:

  • 1C (1 click): go to memorized level
  • 1H (press and keep holding): go to the floor level and then ramp up
  • 2C (2 clicks): go to the ceiling level
  • 2H (press, release, press, keep holding): go to the ceiling level and then ramp down

The only action which goes to the memorized level is a single click.

While the light is on, the actions are a little different:

  • 1C (1 click): off
  • 1H (hold): ramp up (unless the button was released less than 1 second ago, in which case, ramp down)
  • 2C (2 clicks): turbo
  • 2H (press, release, press, keep holding): ramp down

So, to turn the light on at the memorized level and then ramp down, the user should:

  • 1C (click 1 time)
  • wait a moment (~300ms or more)
  • 2H (press, release, press, keep holding)

I hope this makes sense.

Where can I set the max level after a double click from off? It’s max ceiling I guess.
I tried #define RAMP_SMOOTH_CEIL MAX_LEVEL – 30
in 369 line, but it doesn’t works.
I want to have it lower even after reset. I’m using fw3a files.

!!! Hello. Let’s start with order. I try to explain various passages. How to set the maximum level after a double click from off? Reply. 1) make the setting on the ramp you usually use..you can also do it on the other ramp. 2) example: smooth ramp: turn on the flashlight, click 4 with the flashlight on to enter ramp configuration mode. 3) after the first flash, while there is flicker (low level setting, floor), you do nothing. 4) after the second flash, during the flicker (high level setting, ceiling), click only once, and you will have set the ceiling to the maximum level (turbo). Now, if you double click with the flashlight off, the flashlight will go up in turbo. Then I didn’t quite understand what you want to achieve after the flashlight reset. In the meantime, you should know which torch you are using and if this torch has the possibility of being reset to factory values. After a reset, the torch returns to factory values. The factory value of the ceiling is always set to a value lower than the maximum one; now I don’t remember well … it should be 120/150. So if, after a reset, you double click off, the flashlight will go up to a lower level than the turbo, I imagine a level 30 times lower. If you have set the ceiling to the maximum level, as I explained above, to return to the factory level, you will have to click 31 clicks in the ceiling setting mode. . this, of course, works in a flashlight that has Anduril UI and the ability to return to factory levels. I hope ToyKeeper can participate in this discussion to clarify it well.

I don’t think you understood my post. I want to reduce this value during compilation. I know how to do it by clicking.

Edit.
I found it.
On line 367 instead of:

Quote:

#define RAMP_SMOOTH_CEIL MAX_Nx7135


should be:
Quote:

#define RAMP_SMOOTH_CEIL MAX_LEVEL – 35

Hello all,

Was searching a lot on BLF to hopefully find an answer to a question I have about thermal regulation for the Anduril UI for the D4v2 light but I am having difficulty locating my answer. Does anyone know what the max temp is you can set the thermal regulation to? For example can you go higher than 65C etc? Just to note I would never set it that high, I just wanted to know what the highest potential could be. Also, if I wanted to set the thermal regulation to kick on at 55C or 60C what would I do? Any help is appreciated.

Thanks

The highest it allows is 70 C, and the lowest is 31 C.

For a D4 V2, the sensor can be auto-calibrated by using the factory reset function. Basically just loosen the tailcap, hold the button, then tighten the tailcap. Release the button about 4 seconds later after it makes a bright flash.

Then to get to thermal config mode, the fastest way is 10 clicks from off.

After starting up thermal config mode, the first setting calibrates the sensor, which is probably not necessary if you have ever done a factory reset. If you want to set it manually though, click once per degree C for the current room temperature. Usually this is about 20 clicks.

The second setting configures the limit. Each click takes the limit 1 C above 30. So for 55 C, that would be 25 clicks at the second prompt.

In the stepped ramping mode it is possible to set “Floor”, “Ceiling” and “Number of steps”. But it is possible to set specifically each step with own value? F.e. I want three steps – and first step with 10lm, second with 100lm and third with1000lm… Is it possible?

No. The steps are evenly spaced.

For anduril aux lights, is it normal for a double blink on the 8th blink during beacon mode? What does this indicate?

If there are inconsistencies in the aux LED blink pattern, it probably means the firmware doesn’t have the recent irq-refactor branch yet. There were some race conditions which could sometimes mess up the timing of sleep ticks, and those conditions have been fixed.

That branch also had some unfortunate effects on thermal regulation though, so 0-8-15 and I have been working on rewriting that part of the code.

Sorry if this has been addressed already, but how long will a light with Anduril maintain firmware settings with a battery removed – mainly thinking about the temperature configuration and temperature limit settings. Are these set indefinitely until a factory reset or another configuration is performed? About to get my first light with Anduril (Astrolux HL01).

Thanks!

Most settings yes. But the current level is not remembered if you remove power.

By “current level” are you referring to the “room temperature” setting – the calibration of the sensor itself? Or are you referring to “mode/light output level”? The latter I don’t care about and would prefer it be “lost”.

Thanks!

According to Atmel, there is less than a 1-in-a-million chance that the light will forget its settings within 100 years, when kept at or below room temperature.

Most config options, including the temperature options, are kept in eeprom… which has an estimated life span of 100+ years regardless of whether the device has power or not.

Thanks ToyKeeper! I think that’s long enough for my needs!

Any chance Anduril could have an additional feature/shortcut where one could have the Voltage fudge factor configurable, just like the temp calibration and all other configurable features ?

I think it would be easier to have a light's voltage reading adjusted in case you've had a sloppy flash, or you just don't know what dropout your driver has, or simply tolerance between individual components.

Just measure a cell with a decent multi-meter, pop in the cell, go batt voltage chk without loading it and compare - If any difference, go to vff config and adjust, save and Bob's your uncle.

 

Cheers!

+1 on that Voltage cal. I'm gonna add it if it's not gonna happen. Maybe code space is getting too tight.

Is it possible to reconfigure momentary brightness setting?

Words can be broken,
so can bones.

It uses the last used level.

Yea, I don't see anything wrong with it since it uses the last used level.

I understand how to calibrate the temperature sensor, and how to set max temperature. But what is supposed to happen when you are running in temperature regulation and then double click to go into to turbo?
I have a new EC01 that I just calibrated and set for a max temperature of 45C (15 clicks).
From a cold start, I ramp to max, then doubleclick to turbo. The light heats up to about 50C using my IR thermometer. The output does decrease and the temperature doesn’t get any higher. Regulation looks good.
Then I doubleclick, putting the light back in turbo. The temperature rapidly climbes to 60C at which point I turn it off as it’s getting too hot to hold.
Does doubleclick bypass the temperature regulation?

No it shouldn't. But you do get to start over, so you may have a min time before it regulates again.

The Ec01 is a burner with the XHP50.2

That’s why I wanted to calibrate the thermal settings. Mine draws about 16A from a Samsung 21700 30T. It gets hot pretty fast.

i don’t see any difference from maxramp to turbo, why? (temperature limits 20 clicks and a new samsung 40t)

Thank you so much Toykeeper for the instructions. I thought I had bricked my Fireflies E07, but apparently I just got into programming mode by mistake after a few too many beers and messed it up. Your instructions got me straightened out! All Hail Toykeeper!
