About this item

Monolight controlled by microprocessor with interlocking Pulso bajonet, which permits a 360° rotation of the mounted light shapers. 300 J flash energy (100 V version: 250 J), control range over 5 f-stops in 1/1 or 1/10 f-stop increments, high repetitive accuracy for digital imaging, internal discharge in case of a reduction of power. Infrared receiver and photocell (can be switched off separately).

Modelling light with 6 different proportionality levels compatible with all Broncolor flash systems and the various power levels. Monitoring of the modeling light. Front panel with illuminated digital display, LED display as well as a dust and scratch-proof illuminated silicone keyboard. Flash monitoring either by dim or boost function of the modeling light during charging, as well as buzzer. Visual and audible ready display (buzzer can be switched off).

Can be switched to slow charging mode. Fan cooling for long flash sequences, robust metal housing with integrated umbrella holder, big handle, thermal protection and overload circuit breaker. Integrated tilt head with locking lever. Stand adapter for 12 mm / 0.4 inch and 16 mm / 0.6 inch bolts. The bracket of the monolight with the stand adapter can be installed upwards for suspended mounting.

Integrated RFS Interface (Radio Frequency System) for remote control respectively flash release of the unit by radio by means of transmitter RFS as well as transceiver RFS from a PC or Macintosh computer. Built-in memory function to store 4 lighting situations while working via screen.
