Product Highlights
  • Built-in Radio Receiver
  • 300' Range
  • Multi-voltage
  • 1.5 sec. Recycling @ Full Power

The standard of rental studios worldwide, Profoto offers action-stopping short flash duration and fast recycling times for any type of application.

Heavy-duty design, dual voltage capability, consistency of light output and color temperature, and compatibility with Profoto's full line of modular light shaping tools, make this power pack the first choice of professional photographers around the world.

The Acute 2R1200 w/s Power Supply can withstand the rigors of frequent transport and travel. This new power pack is based on the Profoto Acute 2 1200 and is identical to it in every way except for the the addition of a built-in PocketWizard Digital Radio Slave that gives the photographer freedom from sync cords and a wireless triggering range of 300'.

Wireless Freedom
Features a built-in PocketWizard Brand Radio Slave.
Attach an optional PocketWizard transmitter to the camera, and trigger the pack from up to 300' away.
Easy Channel Selection
Simply turn the power supply on and the system is put into "Learn" Mode. The first signal it receives, it remembers. To reset, turn the power supply off, then on again. Then send a new channel, which will be locked in until the power supply is turned off.
Asymmetrical or Symmetrical Distribution
The power level chosen can be symmetrically or asymmetrically distributed among 1, 2, or 3 flashheads.
Compact Design
Measuring only 8.7 x 7.5 x 5" and weighing only 9lbs, the Acute 2R 1200 is extremely portable.
Multi-Voltage
