NEW Variable Focus Beam ELR and options, need Feedback!

Postby Clutch » Sat Jun 03, 2006 3:51 pm

Hello all,

As many of you know, Da-Torch (ELR) has been a GREAT success thus far! It's probably pound for pound da best IR illuminator out there! Over the last year, I've had interest in a variable focus and pressure switch. I've listened and I just completed the testing of some units and I need feedback. I've put a few feelers out there several months ago on the pressure switch and variable focus (2-8 degrees), but the response was a bit slim. If the interest is NOT there, I will not go into production with the new unit, pressure switch, and/or silent switch. Since the original torch was so bright, CQB of 25 yards and in was a slight issue. With the new variable focus, we NOW have the best of both worlds! Below, is some specs of the proposed new units and some pics. I REALLY need an interest list. You can also email me to give me us da "nod" sorta speak.

1). New 2-8 deg Varibale focus torch, will come standard with a silent on/off power switch.
Price: In the neighborhood of $189.00-$199.00 without the pressure switch.
2). Pressure Switch, can be used with new da new variable torch AS WELL AS da original fixed focus torch.
Price: In the neighborhood of $35.00 for my current customers of Da-Torch and $39.95 for new pruchases.
3). Silent Switch, can be used with all torches.
Price: In the neighborhood of $35.95

As stated above, YOUR INPUT IS NEEDED ON THIS ASAP! Thanks all!

So, you manufacture these units, is that correct?

I do not personally assemble them, I have a unique position to the design, functionality and fit. Hope this helps.

Nightvision.ru is listing variable power on some of their IR Illuminators. Are you familiar with what they are doing?

unique position

Postby Jemmy » Mon Jun 12, 2006 11:57 am

Victor,

I am afraid that your unique position is not, er, unique.

I bought the same type illuminator as you are talking about about 5 weeks ago from a website on this side of the pond

http://www.nightvisiongear.co.uk/Night- ... s-X-IR.htm

Complete with weaver mount and laser sight type remote switch.

They also apparently have a focusable version in stock, which is not on their site - this information came from a telephone conversation that I had before I purchased the X-IR (ELR or torch).

Since then, I have had a look around the net, and found the same illuminator under various different guises and brand names.

You might factor all this into your next production run........


:lol:

Jemmy,

Victor is helping us to field test and develop new products. The factory that we are working with on this items (in Russia) is manufacturing a number of different products. I am familiar with the line that NightVisionGear carries and it is not the same product that we offer. While certain parts are the same (battery housing and switch assembly for example; after all it makes no sense not to have interchangeable parts), the main components (in my opinion :) ) such as diodes and optics are quite a bit different.

It is quite common to have similar housings (MUM 2 or MiNi-14 is the perfect example) sold by different companies, the difference is in the "stuffing" :) like tubes, diodes, etc.

Variable power for both indoor and outdoor use of the ELR? Can this device be designed to meet the MFAL RFP illuminator requirements?

Are there any image comparisons with the Laser Devices DBAL I2 illuminator?

The new ELR will be for indoor and outdoor use. Here is the latest design which is awesome.

Btw, the DBAL-A (Squared) is a pure IR laser/Illumunater plus visible laser, kinda hard to do a comparison test with this system.

Vic,
I'll spring for one, but I won't need the pressure switch. Let me know when they are available.

Thank you!
