Light source · Brightness

A long-life laser diode is equipped in the light module

The product can be operated at low cost because the laser light source (rated for 20,000 hours of use*) can be used for a long time without requiring replacement or maintenance.

* It is the nominal hours by 50% brightness reduction of the independent laser light source, and it is not guaranteed.

Brightness can be adjusted within a wide range

Unlike with ordinary light sources, the brightness can be adjusted from 20 to 100% in 1% increments.

[CONSTANT BRIGHTNESS] mode

Brightness normally decreases with use, but by selecting [CONSTANT BRIGHTNESS] mode, sensors inside the projector detect and automatically adjust the output, thereby maintaining constant brightness throughout the life of the light module.

However, if brightness output is set at the maximum, brightness will decrease with use.

Installation

Wide range of optional lenses selectable according to the place of installation

This projector supports 4 types, however PX602UL-WH and PX602UL-BK support 3 types of optional lenses, providing a selection of lenses adapted to a variety of places of installation and projection methods.

In addition, the lenses can be mounted and removed in one touch.

Note that no lens is mounted upon shipment from the factory. Please purchase optional lenses separately.

Tilt-free, portrait projection

This projector can be set to any angle within a vertical 360° range. It can also rotate the picture 90° into portrait orientation.

This projector cannot be installed with right or left slant besides the portrait projection.

Double stackable for high light output projection

By stacking 2 projectors, increased brightness on a large screen is possible.

Checking Energy-Saving Effect [CARBON METER]

This feature will show energy-saving effect in terms of CO2 emission reduction (kg) when the projector’s [LIGHT MODE] is set to either [ECO1] or [ECO2].This feature is called as [CARBON METER].

There are two messages: [TOTAL CARBON SAVINGS] and [CARBON SAVINGS-SESSION].The [TOTAL CARBON SAVINGS] message shows the total amount of CO2 emission reduction from the time of shipment up to now.You can check the information on [USAGE TIME] from [INFO.] of the menu. (→ page 117)

The [CARBON SAVINGS-SESSION] message shows the amount of CO2 emission reduction between the time of changing to LIGHT MODE immediately after the time of power-on and the time of power-off.The [CARBON SAVINGSSESSION] message will be displayed in the [POWER OFF/ ARE YOU SURE ?] message at the time of power-off.

TIP:

The formula shown below is used to calculate the amount of CO2 emission reduction. Amount of CO2 emission reduction = (Power consumption in [NORMAL] LIGHT MODE – Power consumption in current setting) × CO2 conversion factor.* When an energysaving LIGHT MODE is selected, or the Lens Shutter is used, there will be a further reduction in CO2 emission.

* Calculation for amount of CO2 emission reduction is based on an OECD publication “CO2 Emissions from Fuel Combustion, 2008 Edition”.

The [TOTAL CARBON SAVINGS] is calculated based on savings recorded in 15 minutes intervals.

This formula will not apply to the power consumption which is not affected by whether [LIGHT MODE] is turned on or off.
