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 (optional). 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.
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.
