Product Highlights
  • 500W/s
  • Multi-voltage (110-240 VAC)
  • 6-Stop Power Range
  • 300W Modeling Lamp
  • 2.2 sec. Full Power Recycling
  • Sturdy Aluminum Alloy Housing
  • Sliding Pan-Tilt Adjustment
  • User Replaceable Flash Tube

The Hensel Integra 500 Monolight provides the control, power and the quality features that photographers, no matter their field, desire. Start with its flexible power setting allowing precise output selection from its 500W/s capacity over six f/stops in 1/10 stop increments. Settings are visible on an easy-to-read LED screen. The powerful 300W modeling light is strong enough for the multi-tasking image maker to shoot video and for strobe work it can be set to proportional to preview the effect of the flash. Besides fan-cooling, which lengthens the life of the flash tube and modeling lamp, as well as the unit's circuitry, an electronic system continuously monitors the unit's operation, ensuring that after a user-adjustable interval (5-90 min), the modeling light power is reduced to a preset value. As soon as the unit is reactivated, the previous value is restored.

The Integra 500 boasts short flash durations of 1/500 sec. (t0.1) and a very short recycling time of only 2.2 seconds at full power. The durable, extruded aluminum alloy cylindrical body features a built-in ergonomic handle and improved quick-action reflector mount. The stand mount, fixed on previous models, now slides along the body so that the correct fulcrum point can be found to counterbalance front-heavy accessories like large softboxes. Other features include visual and audible recycling alerts, a user replaceable flash tube and a protective dome.

Six Stop Range
Adjustable in 0.1 stop clicks, on the illuminated front panel, from full to 1/32 power output
Optical Slave
Built-in optical slave allows wireless firing without a sync cord
300W Modeling Light
The smart 300W modeling light goes far beyond conventional full and proportional power operation. An electronic system continuously monitors the unit's operation, ensuring that after user-adjustable time (5 - 90 min.), the modeling light power is reduced to a preset value. As soon as the unit is reactivated, the previous value is restored.
User Replaceable Flash Tube
Economical and easy to replace flash tube minimizes downtime
Fan-Cooled
Fan cooling lengthens the life of the flash tube, modeling light and the flash head's electronics

        Comments about Hensel Integra 500 Monolight:

        I've added several of these to my studio over the years. I've found them to be durable and incredibly reliable. Fast recycle times with consistent output. I've grown to prefer them over power packs for their simplicity of operation and completely independent output.

          Used in a studio environment with sboxes/bdishes, recycles fast, no color shifts on low output.
          Like the control dial for output and the dual voltage capability. Very solid construction, it oozes quality. Definitely worth the investment, will last a long time.
