The 233SL Dual Beam Searchlight sports a clean, modern look with a multitude of new features never seen before in a searchlight of this size and price range.
Auto Sweep: With the light on in either fast or slow mode, pushing this button will continuously sweep the light 10° each side of the initial target spot in slow mode. If the light was in fast mode when hitting the sweep button the light will automatically place the unit into slow mode. Simply press the auto sweep button again to finish the cycle. The light will return to its initial starting point and the directional controls will become available for use again.
Speed: The 233SL has the option to run the light in all motion axis's in FAST or SLOW mode. For fast simply hit the Hare button, and for slow hit the Tortoise Button.
Spot/Flood: The spot and flood buttons allow you to change the beam configuration from a spot to a flood, and allow you to choose any beam configuration you desire between these two extreme limits. Simply hold one of the buttons down until you reach your desired beam configuration. For full spot or flood simply hold the spot or flood button down until it comes to a hard stop.
