A M P P O W E R S E T T I N G The Atomic 3000 provides high and low lamp power settings. The high power setting provides maximum flash intensity; the low power setting reduces output by approximately 50 percent and extends lamp life.
Important: Use only replacement lamps from Martin! User only replacement lamps from Martin that have been prepared for use with an ionization wire. XOP lamps without an ionization wire will not work. A M P R E P L A C E M E N T End of life can be confirmed with the Flash LED on the rear panel.
