GTID material? are you referencing the phosphor wheel? just so we are on the same page im planning on using this in a Ca*io xj-a140,2xx projector.

any info is greatly appreciated

Keith.
GITD (glow in the dark) material...

Blu-ray and 445 diodes make GITD material glow. So possibly that PT-54 blue emitter will also do the same... :cool:

You mean to combine all three to get white?

I'm sure it can work, but it would not be practical in a hand held...

Too much current demand / heat / etc...

I have a 1000 lumen white torch here: :cool:

Yet another Phlatlight mod!

The voltage demand (per the data sheet) for the green PT-54 is 4.9 vs 2.6 for the red. (I measured 4.3 for the Green PT-54, and 2.2 for the red)

My battery current draw on this Green PT-54 build is 6.7 Amps vs 3.8 Amps for the Red PT-54. And of course that means it gets warmer too...
Received my green PT-54 today and its safe to say its bright and energy hungry 4.6v @ 8 amps :drool:

i had to double up my test leads as there rated for 3A

Also warn is an understatement i have the thing screwed to a CPU heatsink and the hole sink is warm to the touch after only a couple of minutes











cant wait till its dark out :lasergun:

found an easy way to solder to these contacts just now: i had real trouble soldering to the contacts : most probily because my soldering iron is only 18W (used them in school and like it as its small) not the 60w thats been said on here i managed to get the negative wire on ( F knows how its just stuck like superglue) but couldnt get the positive on to save its life so i thought to ignore the gold coating and put 2 divits with a 2.4mm drill bit into the positive terminal to get to the rich copper underneath , filled the divets with solder and tinned the wire and its all bonded perfectly first time



sorted



p.s. i need to fit a lens and iv got no clue how im going to do that somthing adjustable would be good maybe fit the lens in a bracket and use a screw to focus either way i have no lath and minimal tools


any ideas?

That's cool...

Nothing speaks better than buyer feedback, and I have collected it all together in one post. Zero bad feedback... :)

I mention the link from time to time just so others that may read the thread or post, might also take a look at it... :beer:
