Setting a Power Limit

Power draw of the fixture can be limited by setting a limit, in Watts.  This can be set from 100W to 650W, in steps of 10W.  The brightness level of the unit will be limited to keep within the power limit set.  Note the limit only applies when a DC input is detected, and will apply even if AC source is also plugged in.  Set the limit under MENU > Fixture Settings > Battery Power Limit.
