Novatron D1500 Power Supply
This is a Novatron D1500 Power Supply. Its function is to take AC line power, rectify to DC, and store it in a bank of capacitors. This stored energy can be discharged quickly and intensely through one or more flash heads.
Novatron produces power supplies in five power ratings: 240, 400, 600, 1000, and 1500 w/s. The smaller power supplies have fewer capacitors and thus are lighter in weight and lower in cost than the more powerful ones.
Power level is adjustable in 1/10 stop increments over a 5.8 stop range. Power levels are visible in large LED readout window.
Auto Dump feature eliminates the need to fire the heads after selecting a lower power level.
Low sync voltage is compatible with all digital and film cameras.
Use a Key, Fill, Back, and Hair light with only one power supply.
Durable metal housing can really take a beating.
Novatron's equipment is ideal for those photographers who want to be creative, but don't need bells and whistles.
Novatron 2103FC Fan-Cooled Bare Tube Lamphead
The Novatron 2103FC Fan-Cooled Bare Tube Lamphead is a 3-way switching convertible flash head that contains the controls to independently ratio the flash and modeling lamp at full, -1 stop, or -2 stops. It comes equipped with an internal fan, which aids in cooling electronics and the user replaceable plug-in flashtube.
Fan cooling extends the power handling capacity of this lamphead to 1500 watt/seconds. Without the fan in use, the power limit is 1000 watt/seconds. This head also gives the photographer the option of using different reflectors. This head is better for photographers who want more control over their light than what can be achieved with the other lampheads in the Novatron line of quality flash equipment. A power supply for this flash head is required.
All Novatron Lampheads feature a umbrella socket for optimized and even light distribution.
Easy to Control
This lamp head features an integrated tilt mechanism for continuous tilting for stand or suspension mounting. An optional lever handle 4049, is available for even more precise control.
Easily Replaceable Flashtube
The plug-and-play flashtube eliminates the need to replace the entire head when the flashtube expires.
The 2103FC Lamphead can accept the included 2032 6.5" Removable reflector or an optional 16" 2043 reflector.
25' cable included. Head extension cables are available in 15 and 25' for heads used at longer distances from the power pack (Longer cable lengths will result in .25 and .3 stop reduction in power, respectively).
Easily replaceable, 250W, quartz halogen
