Anduril Használati Útmutató

-------------------

 

Anduril is an open-source firmware for flashlights, distributed under

the terms of the GPL v3.  The sources can be obtained here:

  https://bazaar.launchpad.net/~toykeeper/flashlight-firmware/trunk/files/head:/ToyKeeper/spaghetti-monster/anduril/

 

 

Quick Start

-----------

 

After putting a battery in the light and tightening the parts together,

the light should quickly blink once to confirm it has power and is now

operational.  After that, basic usage is simple:

 

  - Click to turn the light on or off.

  - Hold the button to change brightness.

  - Release and hold again to change brightness the other way.

 

That is all the user needs to know for basic use, but there are many

more modes and features available for people who want more.

 

Before reading the rest of this manual, it is recommended that users

look at the Anduril UI diagram, which should be provided along with the

flashlight.

 

 

Ramping / Stepped Ramping Modes

-------------------------------

 

Anduril's normal operation mode uses a smooth ramp or a stepped ramp,

depending on which style the user prefers.

 

Each ramp has its own settings -- floor (lowest level), ceiling (highest

level), and the stepped ramp can also have a configurable number of

steps.

 

There are four ways to access this mode when the light is off:

 

  - Click: Turn on at the memorized brightness.

  - Hold: Turn on at the floor level.  The light should give a very

    subtle dark blink when the user can let go of the button to stay at

    the floor, or keep holding the button to ramp up.

  - 2 clicks: Turn on at the ceiling level.

  - Click, hold: Turn on at the ceiling level, then ramp down.

 

While the light is on, a few basic actions are available:

 

  - Click: Turn off.

  - 2 clicks: Go to or from turbo (full power).

  - Hold: Change brightness (up).  If the button was released less than

    a second ago, or if it's already at the ceiling, it goes down

    instead.

  - Click, hold: Change brightness (down).

  - 3 clicks: Switch to the other ramp.

  - 4 clicks: Go to ramp config mode.

  - 5 clicks: Activate manual memory and save the current brightness.

  - 5 clicks, but hold the last click: Go back to automatic memory.

 

The "automatic" vs "manual" memory modes change the level the light goes

to with 1 click from off.  In automatic mode, it uses the last

brightness the user ramped to.  In manual mode, it uses the brightness

the user explicitly saved with 5 clicks.

 

 

Other Modes

-----------

 

Anduril has several other modes too.  To access these, press the button

more than 2 times when the light is off:

 

  - 3 clicks: Access the blinky / utility modes.

  - Click, click, hold: Access the strobe modes.

  - 4 clicks: Lockout mode.

  - 5 clicks: Momentary mode.

  - 6 clicks: Muggle mode.

 

 

Blinky / Utility Modes

----------------------

 

Click 3 times from Off to access Anduril's blinky / utility modes.  This

always starts at battery check and the user can proceed to other blinky

modes from there.  The sequence is:

 

  1. Battery check.
  2. Sunset mode.
  3. Beacon mode.
  4. Temperature check.

 

In all of these modes, some basic actions are available:

 

  - Click: Turn off.

  - 2 clicks: Next blinky mode.

 

Additionally, in beacon and temperature check modes:

 

  - 4 clicks: Go to the beacon config mode or thermal config mode.

 

In more detail, this is what each blinky / utility mode does:

 

  1. Battery check.

 

     Blinks out the battery voltage per cell.  Full is 4.2V, empty is

     about 3.0V.  The light blinks the whole-number digit first, pauses,

     then blinks out the "tenths" digit.  Then a longer pause, and it

     repeats.

     So for 4.2V, it would be "blink-blink-blink-blink .. blink-blink".

 

     A "zero" digit is represented by a very quick blink.

 

  1. Sunset mode.

 

     This starts at a low level, then dims gradually for an hour, and

     then shuts off.  It is intended for use when going to bed.

 

  1. Beacon mode.

 

     Blinks at a slow speed.  The light stays on for half a second, and

     then stays off until the next blink.  The brightness and the number

     of seconds between pulses are configurable:

 

       - Brightness is the user's last-ramped level, so set this in

         ramping mode before starting beacon mode.

 

       - Speed is configured in beacon config mode.  Click 4 times to

         enter beacon config mode, wait for the light to stutter, then

         click to enter the number of seconds per blink.  For example,

         to do a 10-second alpine beacon, click 10 times.

 

  1. Temperature check.

 

     Blinks out the current temperature in degrees C.  This number

     should be pretty close to what a real thermometer says.  If not, it

     would be a good idea to click 4 times to enter thermal config mode,

     and calibrate the sensor.

 

     Thermal config mode has two settings:

 

     - Current temperature.  Click once per degree C to calibrate the

       sensor.  For example, if the ambient temperature is 21 C, then

       click 21 times.

 

     - Temperature limit.  This sets the maximum temperature the light

       can reach before it will start doing thermal regulation to keep

       itself from overheating.  Click once per degree C above 30.  For

       example, to set the limit to 50 C, click 20 times.  The default

       is 45 C, and the highest value it will allow is 70 C.

 

 

Strobe / Mood Modes

-------------------

 

Anduril includes a few extra modes for a variety of purposes:

 

  - Candle mode

  - Bike flasher

  - Party strobe

  - Tactical strobe

  - Lightning storm mode

 

Click 3 times from Off to access these, but hold the third click for a

moment.  Click, click, hold.  The last-used strobe mode is remembered,

so it will return to whichever one you used last.

 

In all of these modes, a few actions are available:

 

  - Click: Turn off.

  - 2 Clicks: Next strobe / mood mode.

  - Hold: Increase brightness, or strobe faster.  (except lightning)

  - Click, hold: Decrease brightness, or strobe slower.  (except lightning)

 

Additionally, candle mode has one more action:

 

  - 3 clicks: Add 30 minutes to the timer.

 

In more detail, here is what each mode does:

 

  - Candle mode

 

    Brightness changes randomly in a pattern resembling a candle flame. 

    If a timer is set, it will run until the timer expires, then get

    dimmer for one minute, then sputter and turn itself off.  Without a

    timer, candle mode runs until the user turns it off.  Brightness is

    configurable.

 

  - Bike flasher

 

    Runs at a medium level, but stutters to a brighter level once per

    second.  Designed to be more visible than a normal ramping mode, but

    otherwise works mostly the same.  Brightness is configurable.

 

  - Party strobe

 

    Motion-freezing strobe light.  Can be used to freeze spinning fans

    and falling water.  Speed is configurable.

 

  - Tactical strobe

 

    Disorienting strobe light.  Can be used to irritate people.  Speed

    is configurable, and the duty cycle is always 33%.

 

  - Lightning storm mode

 

    Flashes at random brightness and random speed to simulate lightning

    strikes during a busy lightning storm.  Do not look directly at the

    flashlight when this mode is running, because it may suddenly go to

    full power without warning.

 

 

Lockout Mode

------------

 

Click 4 times from Off to enter Lockout mode.  This makes the light safe

to carry in a pocket or a bag or anywhere else the button might be

pressed by accident.

 

To exit lockout mode, click 4 times.  The light should blink briefly and

then return to the regular "off" mode.

 

Lockout mode also doubles as a momentary moon mode, so the user can do

quick tasks without having to unlock the light.  The brightness in

lockout mode has two levels:

 

  - Hold: light up at the floor level of the current ramp.

  - Click, Hold: light up at the floor level of the other ramp.

 

 

Momentary Mode

--------------

 

Click 5 times from Off to enter Momentary mode.  This locks the

flashlight into a single-mode interface where the LEDs are only on when

the button is held down.  It is intended for Morse code, light painting,

and other tasks where the light should be on only for a short time and

probably in a pattern.

 

Momentary mode does either a steady brightness level or a strobe.  To

select which one, go to the mode you want to use, adjust the brightness

and speed and other settings, then turn the light off.  Then click 5

times to enter momentary mode.

 

Supported momentary modes are steady (normal ramping mode) and strobes

(everything in the "strobe" mode group).

 

In steady mode, brightness is the last-ramped level, so adjust that

before entering momentary mode.

 

In momentary strobe mode, the settings are copied from the last-used

strobe mode, such as party strobe, tactical strobe, or lightning.

 

To exit this mode, physically disconnect power by unscrewing the tailcap

or battery tube.

 

 

Muggle Mode

-----------

 

Click 6 times from Off to enter Muggle mode.  This is a simpler and

less-bright interface which makes the light relatively safe to lend to

children or other people who could use the light unsafely.

 

In Muggle mode, there are only a few available actions:

 

  - Click: Turn the light on or off.

  - Hold: Change brightness.

  - 6 clicks: Exit Muggle mode.

 

The brightness in this mode usually goes from about 10 lm to 300 lm.

 

Muggle mode is remembered even after changing the battery.  This helps

prevent children from exiting the mode by unscrewing the tailcap. 

However, be sure to supervise children whenever they are using any

powerful tools, including a bright flashlight.

 

Note: If the light steps down in muggle mode, it probably needs to have

the temperature sensor calibrated.  Use thermal config mode to do this.

 

 

Configuration Modes

-------------------

 

Every config mode has the same interface.  The menu has one or more

options the user can configure, and it will go through them in order. 

For each menu item, the light will follow the same pattern:

 

  - Blink one or more times, corresponding to the item number.

 

  - Stutter or "buzz" quickly between two brightness levels for a few

    seconds.  This indicates that the user can click one or more times

    to enter a number.  It will keep buzzing until the user stops

    clicking, so there is no need to hurry.

 

  - Pause, and then go to the next option.

 

After the light has gone through all of the menu options, it should

return to whatever mode the light was in before entering the config

mode.

 

If the user doesn't press a button during a menu item's "buzz" phase,

that item remains unchanged from its previous value.

 

 

Ramp Config Mode

----------------

 

While the light is on in a ramping mode, click 4 times to enter the

config mode for the current ramp.

 

For smooth ramping mode, there are two menu options:

 

  1. Floor. (default = 1/150)
  2. Ceiling. (default = 120/150)

 

For the stepped ramping mode, there are three menu options:

 

  1. Floor. (default = 20/150)
  2. Ceiling. (default = 120/150)
  3. Number of steps. (default = 7)

 

To configure the floor level, click the button equal to the number of

ramp levels (out of 150) at which the floor should be.  To set the

lowest possible level, click once.

 

To configure the ceiling level, each click goes one level lower.  So 1

click sets the highest possible level, 2 clicks is the 2nd-highest, 3

clicks is the 3rd-highest level, etc.  To set the default of 120/150,

click 31 times.

 

When configuring the number of steps, the value can be anything from 2

to 150.

 

 

Protection Features

-------------------

 

Anduril includes low voltage protection (LVP) and thermal regulation.

 

LVP makes the light step down to a lower level when the battery is low,

and if the light is already at the lowest level, it shuts itself off. 

This activates at 2.8V.  LVP adjustments happen suddenly, in large

steps.

 

Thermal regulation attempts to keep the light from overheating, and

otherwise adjusts output to stay as close as possible to the

user-configured temperature limit.  Thermal adjustments happen

gradually, in steps so small they are difficult for humans to perceive.

 

 

Aux LEDs / Button LEDs

----------------------

 

Some lights have aux LEDs or button LEDs.  These can be configured to do

different things while the main emitters are off.  There is one aux LED

mode for the regular "off" mode, and another aux LED mode for "lockout"

mode.  This allows the user to see at a glance whether the light is

locked.

 

Aux LED modes typically include:

 

  - Off

  - Low

  - High

  - Blinking

 

To configure the aux LEDs, go to the mode you want to configure and then

click the button a few times:

 

  - Off mode: 7 clicks.

  - Lockout mode: 3 clicks.

 

This should change the aux LEDs to the next mode supported on this

light.

 

If the aux LEDs can change color, there are additional actions to change

the color.  It is the same as above, but hold the button on the last

click and then let go when the desired color is reached.

 

  - Off mode: 7 clicks, but hold the last click.

  - Lockout mode: 3 clicks, but hold the last click.

 

For lights with a button LED, the button LED typically stays on while

the main emitters are on.  Its brightness level is set in a way which

mirrors the main LED -- off, low, or high.

 

For lights with front-facing aux LEDs, the aux LEDs typically stay off

when the main emitters are on, and when the light is otherwise awake. 

The aux LEDs on most lights only turn on when the light is asleep.
