To switch between the settings, use the down switch on the Petzl Duo. Switch on-off-on-off to move between settings 1-2-3-4 ... 1-2 etc, in a looping sequence. Setting 1 will blink momentarily when selected to make it very easy to determine exactly which setting has been selected.
The v42 can be programmed using Customduo infrared remote control (cr2025 battery required). From 1-9 light settings can be specified, and the level of light provided by the spot and/or flood LEDs for each setting can be configured by the user. This is now even easier as the 5 green LEDs provide feedback!
The spot and flood LEDs can be operated separately or blended together. Each LED can be operated at low, medium, medium plus, high and maximum, offering a choice from 24 possible light combinations.
The v42 is the latest version of our widely acclaimed Duo Omni module, simply the most effective LED conversion for the Petzl Duo, with user programmable light settings.
