Hensel Nova DL 1200 Power Pack with Wi-Fi
Key Features
  • 1200Ws, f/128 at 3.28', ISO100
  • 2 Flash Outlets, Short Flash Durations
  • Long Flash Head Power Outlets
  • Wi-Fi Wireless Remote Control Via App
The Hensel Nova DL 1200 Power Pack is made for photographers who need power coupled with very fast recycling and intuitive control features. The Nova DL features two 20-pin long outlets with a large seven-segment digital readout that displays power variations across eight stops in 1/10th stop increments. The symmetrical power distribution allows you to pump full power from a single channel for large light banks or assign it to two discrete channels. Conversely, you can apportion the power asymmetrically in a 60/40, 70/30, or similar ratio. The Nova DL 1200 delivers its output in a very fast 0.6 seconds at full power and as fast as 0.3 seconds at minimum power with flash durations as short as 1/2500 to 1/4500 second for extreme stop-action shooting. For those all-day shooting sessions, you'll be glad to know that a cooling fan kicks in to ensure consistency from shot-to-shot while protecting the pack's electronics.

The Hensel Nova DL 1200 Power Pack is made for photographers who need power coupled with very fast recycling and intuitive control features. The Nova DL features two 20-pin long outlets with a large seven-segment digital readout that displays power variations across eight stops in 1/10th stop increments. The symmetrical power distribution allows you to pump full power from a single channel for large light banks or assign it to two discrete channels. Conversely, you can apportion the power asymmetrically in a 60/40, 70/30, or similar ratio. The Nova DL 1200 delivers its output in a very fast 0.6 seconds at full power and as fast as 0.3 seconds at minimum power with flash durations as short as 1/2500 to 1/4500 second for extreme stop-action shooting. For those all-day shooting sessions, you'll be glad to know that a cooling fan kicks in to ensure consistency from shot-to-shot while protecting the pack's electronics.

Triggering options include 1/4" phono plug for hardwiring; an optical slave, which responds to the firing of another flash; and radio triggering thanks to the Nova's built-in radio receiver. The receiver is compatible with Hensel Strobe Wizard Plus, Freemask, and Profoto Air Sync transmitters, as well as Profoto's Air Remote which offers power and modeling light control as well as wireless triggering at distances up to 984'. There's also a free app available that allows wireless Wi-Fi control of the pack from a smartphone or a tablet.

Precision and control also extends to the modeling lights on compatible EH flash heads. Power can be set to Proportional, to preview the effect of the of your flash ratio; On; Off; Full power; and User Selectable, which allows you to adjust the modeling lamp intensity independently of the selected flash power. And, speaking of power, the Nova DL 1200's power supply is self-seeking 100-240 VAC, allowing you to use it anywhere in the world. When operating in a nominal 120V environment the pack handles 300W lamps and in a 230 VAC electrical environment lamps as high as 650W. If you're mixing later power packs with older legacy packs, you'll appreciate that Hensel continues their tradition of using essentially identical nomenclature and positioning of switches and controls throughout the system. You might say that Hensel moves forward with an eye on the past.
