Additional Information

The PFC Advanced Black Edition. Milled from a solid block of aluminum and anodized in black color, armored like a Leopard II in combat, only 400 g heavier than the standard one, completely waterproof housing (if the breather valve is replaced with a sealed screw). Beast Mode activated. Now it does not matter anymore if you use it for tactical forces, outdoors under the Niagara Falls or in beautiful sunshine in the desert of nowhere. Unlocked and loaded, only your imagination is the limit.

The differences to the PFC Advanced Standard quickly become clear: First, the very robust and absolutely waterproof housing. Besides that, the Black Edition comes with a removable handle that can be plugged in almost everywhere: On the sides, the front and back and even on the bottom side, which allows for tilting the unit if you want to use it on your desktop. Furthermore, it has no key switches anymore. You have a single button to switch it on, which leads you to a code request after selecting the language. The code can be changed to a personal four-digit code, as you e.g. know it from smartphones. In addition a backup switch is integrated by default.

For arming the unit, you slide in the magnetic pen on the side of it while being in one of the firing modes. The connectors of the unit are all waterproof and heavy-duty.
