    So I've got a few questions for you, some of which at this time you may not want to answer until the heads are released.
    1. Why are they called hybrid heads? What sets them apart from other heads?
    2. How will the TMG system know it has a hybrid head installed? I can see ports being dedicated with splitters and such, such as port 1 is hybrid front and port 2 is 2 regular split heads, etc.

    I call it that. I just call it "the hybrid head" so I can keep it straight in my mind :)
    The new algo's will work with the older heads or the newer heads. The "hybrid" head will perform better against VPR guns when installed along with the standard heads.

    Nice, but if you're willing to tell us, what is the overall technical difference of the head?

    It will fire at different "rhythms" filling some gaps that are allowing punch through's at shorter distances.

    ..... it would appear that using both (at least one of each of the current & hybrid), due to the firing at different rhythms "should" give the best protection...... :happyanim::hatsoff:

    Interesting.....

    Yup. So far on the bench that is a true statement.

    Very nice! So I guess I'll hold off on installing the 3rd/4th head up front until these come out not to mention its cold and wintry here! I can also save the 2 current extra heads for the rear and/or bike install when that finally happens! :)

    That's my thoughts as well!

    Swap out one of the front heads and one of the rear heads.

    Oh, ummmmm.... this is if the current head and a hybrid can share the split cable.

    WOW - was very surprised to learn( TMG Testing Results MK II - 12/1/18 & 12/2/18 ) my concern over the TMG A-15 lasing DIODE longevity in Post #12 was indeed at risk b/c of the high-frequency pulse train as I suspected. Kudos to TMG for sharing/admitting to the design flaw.

    In your up coming TMG wknd LAB Testing you mentioned in another Thread...
    1.Do you have access to Ophir Photonics Test Electronics ? (energy level output in joules)
    2.Would it be possible for you to determine the 'brute force' PRR TMG uses for DrahonEye Lidars ?
    3.Can you measure the "peak" ampere draw (from +12v) the TMG pulls during a DragonEye jam.

    Sorry to see all the "hatin" on you I've seen in the other Testing thread recently, it comes w/ the territory & I've taken it myself when I helped start RALETC & Tests were nit-picked. I have great respect & admiration for all the work/results I've seen from NYCTG, please don't stop b/c of a few miscreants !!!

    Thanks for the support RR. Appreciate it.

    1. No idea. I will get back to you.
    2. Yeah already determined. I will post something up in advanced.
    3. I will get back to you on this one too.

    Hey do you want the power draw of the TMG system, or the absolute peak current draw of the diode?

    I'm not looking for voltmeter/ammeter rms or average power levels. It would be easiest just for the "peak" current sink off the +12v source during Dragon encounters. The A-15 prolly only draws a few hundred milliamperes to run all the system electronics, the Lasing diode & its Driver is where all the juice goes. So it's not necessary for you to cut a circuit trace or wiring to get directly "in-line" for the Diode only.
