This Monolight Flash with LED Modeling Light from Impact is a compact, 180 watt-second monolight strobe that has the same features of larger strobes, making it a great starter strobe unit, as well as an addition to existing setups. Offering a variable output range of five f-stops, the monolight has an integrated optical slave for wireless triggering and includes a 3.5mm sync cord for a direct connection to a camera or a wireless triggering system.

Optical Slave
An integrated optical slave allows the SF-ABRL180 to be triggered wirelessly using a camera's flash, or other studio strobe. Multiple strobe units may be used for endless lighting possibilities.
LED Modeling Light
The integrated LED modeling light shows precisely where shadows will fall on the subject. The 4-watt LED array is made up of 60 daylight-balanced LED bulbs, with cool operation that won't be uncomfortable when used for portraiture.
Bowens Mount
The built-in Bowens-style mount makes the SF-ABRL180 compatible with a wide range of reflectors, speed rings, and other light modifiers such as softboxes and beauty dishes.
Replaceable Flash Tube
If the long-life flash tube wears out or becomes damaged, it may be replaced by the user in just minutes, minimizing downtime. Simple instructions are included in the user manual.
Audible Recycle Alert
The audible recycle alert indicates when the strobe has fully charged and is ready to be fired again. The alter may be disable with the touch of a button.

Is this strictly 110v only or can this be used in Europe as well (220v)?
Asked by: Levan
The Impact 180Ws Monolight Starter Flash listed above is designed for use on 110 VAC / 60 Hz AC power outlets. It is not designed for use on 220/240V AC power outlets and is not a multi-voltage light fixture. If you are looking for a multi-voltage monolight, the Raya SDR-400 Alpha Monolight, B&H # RASDR400, or the Jinbei DM-3 300Ws Portable Studio Monolight, B&H # JI101011306, would be compatible for use on 220/240V AC power outlets.

To fire the Impact 180Ws Monolight Starter Flash with LED Modeling Light you will need a wire trigger. Such as the Impact PowerTrigger 16 Channel AC Transmitter and Receiver Set.

How does it synch to a camera? Will it synch to other flashes such as Yongnuo?
Asked by: Jim
If you have a DSLR with no PC connection, buy an adapter that goes into your hot shoe with a PC terminal and use the sync cord that comes with the unit. Also, you can use the mono-light as a slave that's triggered from another flash going off.
