STRIX VL headlamps have color lighting (red, green, blue) and three white lighting levels.
Two lighting configurations:
- Visible color lighting:
Red, green and blue color lighting choices offer comfortable vision for close-range work & when moving around
- Visible white lighting:
Three modes: stealth mode ( very narrow, low-intensity beam for stealth and maximum battery life), close-range vision mode, movement mode.
Intuitive lighting management to guarantee stealth:
For each of the numerous ways the headlamp can be worn, the biaxial rotation system allows great freedom for orienting the beam: 180 degrees horizontally & 120 degrees vertically. The user can be assured that he/she will see where needed. Orient the beam straight up to prevent blinding people when conversing is desired. It offers exceptional versatility and intuitive use with absolute reliability.
- The sequence of modes moves from most discreet to least discreet
- Pulse control allows each mode to be accessed and to quickly turn off the headlamp
- Lighting modes and the OFF position can be locked to prevent any unwanted maneuver
- SCAN" function: Headlamp turns off instantly when button is released
- For quick movement between modes, only one of the three colors is directly accessible (programmable choice)
