AOI RGBlue System02 Underwater Video Light
AOI RGBlue System02 Underwater Video Light
Building on the System01, the RGBlue System 02 is a more powerful video light with all of the features that RGBlue have brought to the table. With interchangeable batteries and light heads, not to mention that they are both water sealed, you will have one of the best lights currently on the market.
Overview / Product Description
What do divers want from an underwater light source? What do they expect of the diving equipment they use? And how do we reconcile lighting requirements with the unique needs of underwater equipment. These are the key questions the Japan-based product development team of RG Blue focused on when designing their exclusive line of underwater lights. The result is the System Series, a new standard in underwater lighting that features faithful color reproduction supported by a unique set mechanisms that protect the equipment against water and prevent leaks.
High-quality COB (Chip On Board) LED
System Series models employ a single-source type COB (Chip On Board) LED. The COB LED emits light from a single plane, eliminating the problems that plague multi-LED light sources such as irregular light distribution from center to periphery, color irregularity, and the multi-shadow effect.
High-index color rendition and optimum color temperature ensure natural reproduction of underwater colors
The light emitted by System Series models achieves a high color rendering index of Ra80 and a color temperature of 5000K, making it possible to bring out the full, natural colors of objects underwater with a fidelity closely resembling that of colors produced under normal sunlight something that has not been possible with high-power LED lights until now.
Flat light distribution with 100_ emission angle, top-level light intensity, condenser lens for double illuminance.
Flat light is distributed evenly throughout the emission angle of 100_, providing sufficient light for shooting movies, as well as for wide-angle shooting. While light intensity is already high enough to provide more than enough illuminance for most applications, it can be further increased by using a condenser lens that reduces the light distribution angle to 60_.
Modularized system with one-touch connection/disconnection capability
Each underwater light consists of two modules the light source (Light Module) and the power supply (Battery Module). An original bayonet mechanism allows the two modules to be easily connected and disconnected. This design offers users more flexibility, allowing them to keep multiple spare batteries on hand or to connect a System 01 module with a System 02 module.
Independent waterproofing for each module with recovery mechanism helps protect against water penetration and leaks
The inner lid of each module is provided with an IPX6 equivalent waterproof mechanism. In addition, protection circuitry keeps the electrical contacts from corroding, preventing failure and ensuring safe, reliable underwater operation.
Simple operation, perfect safety mechanisms
Just two pushbuttons are all thats needed for intuitive control of the standby, ON/OFF, 4-step brightness control and non-step brightness control. Remaining battery power is indicated with a 4-color LED indicator.
Safety mechanisms cover a wide range of risk factors, and include a function that reduces light to minimum intensity when remaining battery power drops to 5% to prevent sudden light extinction when the battery powers down, as well as an overheat control, overcharge/over-discharge prevention, short-circuit protection, and over-pressure valve.
