It is one of the finest 400 w-s battery portable flash units in the industry.
The standard model is the A400B Assembly which does not include the modeling lamp feature. Also there are three 200 w-s battery portable assemblies; A200C standard assembly, A200C-M with modeling light lamphead and A200C-LS Light Sphere Assembly (bare bulb).
The Norman P400B is a 400 w-s battery-operated flash power supply that is generally sold with the A400B or A400B-M assembly. It accepts Norman Series 500 lampheads including the LH52K with 5' coil cord (standard) and LH52K-M with modeling lamp circuit.
Norman believes that the P400B is the highest quality 400 w-s flash power supply on today's market. Its all-aluminum housing is rugged and compact and it can be worn either over-the-shoulder or around the waist. Optional for the P400B is a high-quality R4107 shoulder strap with contour pad that hugs the shoulder. Remove the pad and the strap ends hook together to hang the pack on a stand or on a door knob. The optional R4122 leather belt is used to wear the P400B around the waist.
The unit features four power levels, quick recycling, voltage stabilized output, heavy-duty industrial lamphead connector and a low-battery li ght that warns the photographer when about 10 full power flashes are remaining. It accepts two of the B5122 Super Battery which boosts the number of flashes from the P400B by about 25%. The C55x2 "Delta V" Battery Charger is required to provide added battery life and performance. (Batteries and charger not included with P400B, unless ordered as a complete assembly; A400B and A400B-M.
The LH52K-M is our lamphead for the A400B-M Battery Portable flash unit. It features a 12v modeling lamp circuit.
Included with the LH52K-M is an FT120-UV plug-in Flashtube with UV filtration and a 5' Coil Cord with vinyl jacket that won't crack or split. The modeling lamp circuit automatically switches off after each flash or after 20 seconds, whichever comes first. This prevents draining of the battery.
Reflectors for the LH52K-M include our 2D-ML general purpose with modeling lamp, 2DRP-ML with built-in diffusion dome and modeling lamp, 2H telephoto sports and 2Q general purpose with 150w quartz modeling lamp.
The LH52K has a standard ¼"x20 tapped hole on the bottom to accept practically all brands of camera brackets. The Norman R4108 and R4130 Umbrella Stand Adapters attach the LH2K to a light stand.
