|Emitter||4 x Samsung LH351D LEDs|
|Color temperature||5000 K|
The emitter of S43 LH351D manufactured by Samsung, a Korean LED manufacturer. Color temperature is a characteristic of light. It is measured in units called Kelvin (K) and is used to quantify the color appearance of light sources, particularly white light. The TIR lens of S43 LH351D consists of a single-piece lens made of a transparent material, typically acrylic or polycarbonate. Its shape and internal geometry are designed to achieve specific light distribution patterns, such as flood or spot beams, by manipulating the behavior of light rays. The S43 LH351D utilizes electronic switch. Electronic switches on flashlights provide a range of advantages and additional features compared to mechanical switches.
With 4000 lm, the S43 LH351D flashlight will provide an exceptionally bright and powerful beam of light. It can illuminate large areas, outdoor spaces, or even act as a temporary spotlight in certain situations. With 8464 cd, the S43 LH351D flashlight provides a noticeably brighter and more intense beam of light. It can illuminate objects or areas with greater clarity and visibility, even at longer distances.
The throw distance refers to the maximum distance at which the flashlight can effectively illuminate an object or target. The stated throw distance typically indicates the point at which the brightness falls below a specified threshold, such as 0.25 lux. The candela per lumen (cd/lm) ratio can be used to determine if a flashlight has a spot or flood type beam. Well-focused spot beams can be over 100 cd/lm, tactical flashlights are typically between 20-100 cd/lm, and work lights are less than 10 cd/lm.
A flashlight with a higher CRI can provide better color accuracy when examining objects or distinguishing between different colors in low-light or nighttime situations. This can be beneficial in certain tasks or activities where color discrimination is important, such as identifying wires or reading color-coded information. With a CRI of 95, the S43 LH351D flashlight can render colors with exceptional fidelity, capturing even subtle nuances and details in color. This makes it particularly well-suited for applications where precise color discrimination and accurate color reproduction are critical.
NarsilM is an open-source firmware designed for flashlights, it is similar to Anduril. The S43 LH351D has mode memory. Mode memory means that the flashlight will remember the mode you were using when the light was last turned off, and when you turn it on again. The S43 LH351D flashlight with ramping mode has a user interface that enables you to control the brightness level by pressing and holding a button.
The S43 LH351D is tactical strobe ready. The strobe light is disorienting to the person it is aimed at which makes it difficult for them to concentrate. It has the SOS beacon function for an emergency situation. The SOS flashes Morse code so you can signal for help when needed. The SOS signal is recognized as an international distress call and is used to indicate an urgent need for assistance.
