The Quadra Living Light Kit with Lead Battery, S Head and Transmitter was put together by Elinchrom to offer on the go photographers a turnkey location lighting solution. The kit includes the 400Ws Quadra Hybrid RX Pack, a lead-gel battery, multi-voltage charger, 8.2' flash head cable, sync cable, and an ELS Transmitter Speed for remote triggering of the flash.
The Quadra Hybrid RX Pack with Lead-Gel Battery pack delivers an impressive 400Ws of power in a small package that weighs in at only 6.6 lb. while offering has portability, flexibility and professional convenience features you would expect from a company of Elinchrom's stature. The powerful pack can recycle in 0.41 to 2.26 seconds at 115V with full power flash durations as short as 1/3,000 sec. with the S (Standard) head and 1/5,700 with the A (Action) head. The Quadra Hybrid RX has a 6.6 stop power range that's variable in 1/10 stops and can distribute power in a fixed 2:1 asymmetrical ratio (66 - 33%) or 100% through one head.
The pack has a built-in ELS Skyport Receiver with 8 channels that can handle 4 distinct groups of flashes and not only allows you to trigger your pack at distances up to 393' but gives you control of power, on/off, modeling light functions and HyperSync activation. Free software for Mac and PC computers is available with the transmitter to add additional features a they become available. Add an optional USB Wi-Fi module for computer control and software that allows you to use specially designed apps that allow full remote control via your for iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch.
The full-functioning miniaturized S flash head which is ideally mated to the 400Ws Ranger Quadra Hybrid battery-powered pack. At only 0.6 lb and measuring only 5.9 x 3.3 x 3.1", the head not only packs well and is eminently portable, but is mountable in situations that would be impossible for a full-sized flash head.
The "S" designation for Standard, might look like the head is an under-performer as compared to its "A" counterpart, but on the contrary, the Standard is capable of very fast flash durations as short as 1/3,000 sec - perfectly adequate for nearly all applications. The Hybrid S Head does away with conventional halogen modeling lamps in favor of a low-draw LED lamp that produces the tungsten equivalent of 50W, and ships with a standard 5.3" umbrella reflector. Elinchrom also offers the EL-RQ adapter for those who want to use standard full-sized accessories and reflectors. The head comes with a removable 8.2' head cable. Optional 5.0' and 11.5' cables are available.
The Elinchrom Skyport SPEED Transmitter can control basic functions of Elinchrom units such as the BXRI 250/500, Ranger Quadra and D-Lite-it with their built-in ELS Receiver, and Elinchrom RX units to which a Transceiver RX (not included) is attached. The Skyport remote control system works at distances up to 196' (60m) indoors and up to 393' (120m) outdoors and syncs at up to 1/250 sec. It can control flashes in 4 selectable workgroups, and there are 8 frequency channels for interference-free operation.
