The Norman D12R Rapid power supply operates with all Series 900 Commercial lampheads and features a built-in Pocket Wizard radio slave receiver.

The D12 is a compact 1200w/s power supply, making it an ideal unit for location flash photography.

The power adjusts from full to -5 stops in .1 stop increments. All power levels are visible from the bright LED readouts.

In the symmetrical mode, the circuit has two 600 w/s channels. Each channel supports two heads, and each features a separate continuous sweep flash dimming dial. This enables the photographer to dial the power down from 600 to 75 w/s.

A Slow Charge selector allows use of the pack on location where there is sub-par wiring.

Wireless Triggering
Use your own Pocket Wizard brand radio slave transmitter to trigger this power pack. This pack is also capable of firing from other strobes' visible flash bursts.

Each head outlet has its own on-off switch.
Flash Ready Indication

        Comments about Norman D12R Rapid Power Pack with Radio Slave - 1200 W/S:

        I use this power pack more then year. I'ts well done and good quality. You can use 4 heads in same time. Radio Slave helps and have no problems. I use IL2500 heads with it. It's great solution for mobile studio and who need to work on location. I use it for my food photography, fashion projects, and it's always with my for any case on wedding.
