a fraction of the power of a halogen lamp. HID has quickly become the standard for exploration-grade lighting systems. Halcyon's Explorer and Apollo lights require very little attention beyond the care given to a halogen light. Although it produces 5% of its output when first ignited, the HID light requires a few seconds (usually 15-20) to produce full output. Also, if power to the lamp is lost or turned off (such as with an underwater pluggable cord), the light ballast must be allowed a brief period to reset before being reignited. Halcyon HID lights only require a brief 5 -10 seconds. The ballast...

characteristics that indicate a bulb is approaching the end of its lifespan. Initial symptoms of end-of-life are characterized by low light output and/ or intermittent starting. Visual signs include blackening at the ends of the arc tube and electrode tip deterioration. Note that HID bulbs contain metals, including mercury, that are harmful to the environment. Please be responsible in arranging for proper disposal of an HID bulb. The bulb and ballast are sensitive to external operating temperature. Although HID light technology doesn't generate heat equal to that of a halogen light, it should...

movement. Dirt may become trapped along the focusing barrel, creating friction between the test tube and light head. To clean the dirt from the bulb assembly, simply loosen the locking screw and push the bulb assembly out toward the cord. Clean the light head and bulb assembly. Be careful not to pull a stuck assembly out by the cord while underwater as the tube may come free from the assembly, flooding the light. The groove on your light head's bulb assembly will prevent the unit from being accidentally pulled out from the light head by an entangled cord. The promise of LED technology that can...

The canister is configured for attaching to the diver's waist belt. The unique three-fold webbing attachment on your Halcyon Light is held in place by two stainless steel bands. The three-piece fold holds the light with more stability than conventional methods, and prevents the light from accidentally releasing from the diver's hip. The steel bands can be raised or lowered on the canister to balance the light on your hip; the canister should rest parallel to your body when mounted on your harness. Delrin Canisters Halcyon canisters are milled out of a solid rod of Delrin. The one-piece design...
