A Maximum 5,000-Hour* Lamp Replacement Cycle and 6,000-Hour** Air Filter Replacement Cycle
These handy portables offer a lamp replacement cycle of up to 5,000 hours* for extended, maintenance-free use.
Three-layered air filters, in which each layer contains a different mesh size, are installed in two parts of the body.
Increasing the filters& surface area made it possible to achieve a replacement cycle of up to 6,000 hours.**
This reduces maintenance hassles for long periods of use, and helps to lower maintenance costs and reduce environmental impact.
* This is the maximum value when the lamp power is set to Eco1 or Eco2, with the lamp turned on for 2 hours and off for 0.25 hours. Increases in the lamp on cycle or extended use with the lamp continuously turned on will shorten the lamp replacement cycle. When the lamp power is set to Normal, the lamp replacement cycle is 3,000 hours.The usage environment affects the lamp replacement cycle.
** With the lamp power set to Eco1 or Eco2. The usage environment affects the duration of the filter.
Quiet 29-dB* Design Does Not Interrupt Meetings or Classes
The quiet design keeps noise levels down to 29 dB,* so the sound of the cooling fan is hardly noticeable.
This helps the audience to keep their attention on the speech when someone is giving a presentation or on the
screen images during quiet scenes.
* With the lamp power set to Eco1 or Eco2.
Intelligent Lamp Control System Reduces Power Consumption
When the lamp power is set to Auto, the Intelligent Lamp Control system automatically adjusts the lamp output in accordance with the brightness of the projected image and reduces it by up to 70%. It also combines with color shift correction, which corrects the shift in the color balance that occurs when the lamp output drops.
As a result, power consumption is effectively reduced while excellent color reproduction is maintained.
Displaying the Total Amount of Reduced Power Consumption and CO2 Emission
When the lamp power is set to Eco1, Eco2 or Auto, you can display the total amount of reduced power consumption and decreased CO2 emission compared to when the lamp power is set to Normal. It can be shown by day, month or year. Quantitatively checking these reduction amounts helps to increase the awareness of energy saving and the environment.
Environmentally Friendly Standby Power Consumption of Only 0.48 W*
When Standby mode is set to Eco, the standby power consumption is low at 0.48 W.*
This lowers running costs, and helps to reduce environment impact.
* Standby mode: Eco. When Standby mode is set to Eco, network functions such as standby on via LAN are not available.
Also, only certain commands can be received for external control using the serial terminal.
