The projector will always switch to the lamp with the shortest runtime when the difference between the runtimes of lamp1 and lamp 2 reaches 100 hours, switching from one lamp to another happens only at switching on of the projector and not during operation.

When the lamp fails or reaches its maximum runtime the projector switches automatically to the other lamp without interrupting the projection.The failure is logged and the lamp will never be initialized in the future.

Single mode operation: switching principle

Dual mode

Both lamps are working.

When one lamp fails, the projector continues the projection using the remaining lamp.

When switching from the dual mode to the single mode the lamp with the longest runtime is switched off.

If the runtimes are equal (if the projector has always been operated in dual mode) then lamp1 is switched out.

When switching to single mode, returning to the dual mode will not be possible in the first 60 seconds, Dual in the menu is greyed out and LED1 is flickering, thereby preventing hot restrike which may damage the lamp.

10.3 Power mode (only active in the iQG/R 500)

What can be done ?

The lamp power mode can be chosen to be in :

Full power mode : the total available power is used for the lamps (maximal brightness). This corresponds with the shortest lamp lifetime (1500 hours)

Economy mode : the lamps are dimmed, the lifetime is extended to 3000 hours

The choice of the Power mode must be done during the installation of the projector. The switching between the 2 modes can only be done 6 times and this only during the first 100 hours of the lamp lifetime (considering a dual lamp mode i.e. both lamps are used).
