Increase Flash Intensity

The minimum and maximum flash brightness settings of a M550 beacon are dependent on the configured flash code. For the 066 flash code typically set on NexSens-supplied beacons, the maximum effective intensity that can be set is 20cd as demonstrated by Carmanah’s table below.  A complete listing of Flash Codes is available in Carmanah’s manual which can be found here.

The IR programming remote command to set the minimum intensity is PWR 600 √, while the command to set the maximum 20cd intensity is PWR 620 √

All intensities between these values are also configurable (ex. PWR 611 √). The beacon will flash for each registered keypress and a quick triple flash after entry of the full command indicates it was applied successfully. Two slower flashes following a command entry indicates an invalid or incompatible (given current settings) command.
