BH #HE4962S • MFR #4962S
Hensel Porty L 1200 Power Pack
Key Features
  • 1200Ws
  • AC or Battery Powered
  • Symmetrical or Asymmetrical
  • 1/10 Stop Adjustments
The evolution of lithium battery technology has enabled the production of the Hensel Porty L 1200 Power Pack. Used with a Speed Flash Head this 1200Ws power pack will provide a flash duration of 1/2400 second at full power, and a blistering 1/5200 second at minimum power with recycle times as short as 0.2 seconds. Digital processing ensures consistent power output hour after hour, day after day. The L 1200 distributes power to your flash heads symmetrically or asymmetrically in 1/10 stop increments over a seven-stop range, displayed on its bright seven-segment performance indicator. Although you can go "old school" and fire the Porty via a 1/4" phono plug sync cord or its built-in optical slave, going wireless is a better way. The L 1200 makes it easy with built-in Profoto Air, Hensel Strobe Wizard Plus, and Freemask receivers.

Digital processing ensures consistent power output hour after hour, day after day. The L 1200 distributes power to your flash heads symmetrically or asymmetrically in 1/10 stop increments over a seven-stop range, displayed on its bright seven-segment performance indicator.

The L 1200 makes it easy with built-in Profoto Air, Hensel Strobe Wizard Plus, and Freemask receivers.

The optional transformer/quick charger is multi-voltage, auto-sensing. Besides charging the battery, it can be used as an AC power supply when set to slow recycle mode.

Higher Performance through Lithium Technology

Lithium technology has allowed Hensel to re-engineer the Porty for today's photographer:
  • Faster, smaller, lighter, but with stronger output performance than units with lead-gel cell battery
  • Only 13.5 lb total weight but with 1200Ws output
  • Extremely fast flash recycle times from 0.2 sec
  • Extremely short flash duration up to 1/5200 sec
  • Choice of symmetric or asymmetric power distribution via the "A" or "B" socket
  • Individual settings in 1/10 f-stop increments
  • Output range of 7 f-stops
  • Remote Control

    Integrated Profoto Air radio, Hensel Strobe Wizard Plus and Freemask receivers. Switchable radio remote functions: output adjustment, triggering, modeling light, standby. Full remote control with both systems, manufacturer compatible
  • Integrated radio antenna for optimum protection
  • Structural and Convenience Features

  • Metal housing with sturdy, protective rubber profile
  • Large 7-segment performance indicator
  • Special ergonomic handle bar for carrying, with integrated spare fuses
  • Optional use of AC mains switch drawer instead of power pack
  • Connector socket for round plugs / Hensel Porty connector and Pro Mini / 20-pol. long plug via adapter
  • USB port for software updates
  • Durable foil surface with "real" push-buttons and clearly detectable imprint around the push-buttons. Optimized for your sense of touch
  • Name and position of switches and control units are generally the same as previous generation
  • APD, internal power reduction when reducing power output
  • Synchronous socket for standard cord 1/4" phono plug
  • Very low synchronous voltage protects digital cameras
  • Thermal monitoring of performance electronics
