  • Ranger RX Speed AS Asymmetrical Battery Powered Pack

    This is the Elinchrom Ranger RX Speed AS Asymmetrical Battery Powered Pack.  The "RX" signifies the ability to be fired by a remote control handset, or computer. The "AS" indicates the ability of the 1100Ws power pack to divide power to each of 2 heads asymmetrically. The "Speed" indicates very short flash duration (when using an "A" model flash head). A special remote control is available to allow control over settings and firing from a computer or handset.

    Two dedicated heads are available: FreeLite S and FreeLite A. Following the same head designations as other flash heads in the Elinchrom family, the A "Action" heads provide ultra-fast flash duration, whereas the S Heads produce a "Standard" flash duration (considered extremely fast compared to other brand's flash heads). Lower the power to 17Ws, and switch to slow recycle and up to 5100 exposures can be made.

    Elinchrom Ranger has flash durations as short as 1/4310 sec. (with 2 "A" heads attached), ideal for sports, fashion, and theatre photography.

    Controls on the pack permit changing the output in 0.1 stop increments in an easy-to-read digital display.

    Compact Design
    Easily transportable, fits easily into many location cases.
    Special sealed controls and capped flashhead connectors, sealed bottom, battery drawer access from side of unit.
    8.5 F-Stop Range
    17 - 1100Ws, digitally controlled in 0.1 stop increments.
    Fast Recycle Time
    2.5 seconds @ full power.
    Recycle Indication
    2 LED's and an Audible Switchable Beep signify flash is ready to fire.
    Fast Recharging
    The multi-voltage charger can charge a battery in 3 hours to full power, inside the unit, or externally.
    Conserves Battery Power
    Automatically switches off 5 minutes after the last operation.
    LED's indicate remaining battery power.
    Built in Slave
    The photo cell is adapted to trigger in bright ambient light.
    Auto Dump

  • Ranger Free Lite A Flash Head

    The Elinchrom FreeLite A Flash Head is dedicated to the new Elinchrom Ranger battery-powered pack. It is an ideal choice for anyone requiring the shortest possible flash duration. It features Elinchrom's unique short flash duration flashtube, capable of 2400 w/s output and designed to withstand the heating stresses associated with rapid full power shooting.

    The Free Lite A features a 16', low resistance power cable, modeling light switch and safety fuse.

    Elinchrom's extensive line of reflectors, softboxes, accessories are compatible, and available separately. This is a flash head only. It requires an Elinchrom Ranger Power Pack.

    Compact Design
    Compact and lightweight, fitting into standard existing Elinchrom cases.
    Changeable Reflector
    Elinchrom standard bayonet, plus additional security breech lock. Accepts all Elinchrom/Prolinca accessories since 1974.
    Modeling Lamp Switch
    Features a switch to turn the modeling light on or off.
    Asymmetric Distribution
    Even though the Ranger Power Supply has symmetrical distribution only, the photographer is able to achieve a 2:1 ratio between the "A" and "S" series of heads. This works because the "A" heads have a duration up to 1/3250 second while the "S" heads have a duraton up to 1/1600 second. The "A" head is twice as fast, and draws twice the energy of the "S" head creating a 2:1 ratio.
    Umbrella Socket
    Centralized umbrella socket for optimized and even light distribution.

Elinchrom RX Speed AS reviews

Ranger RX Speed AS and A Head Kit is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 23.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Forget the Quadra and go with the Ranger I struggled for weeks agonizing over Quadra versus Ranger RX and all the advantages/disadvantages of each. I finally decided that I wanted power to shoot outdoors no matter how bright the sun over convenience and portability of Quadra. Turns out the Ranger when held in a snappy carrying case really isn't very heavy at. At least not for a 36 year old man. And the difference between using the light as a key light rather than as a fill light (Quadra in bright light) is dramatic. Quadra has that harsh light look to it when used as a fill. Also the cost of the adaptors to be able to use the modifiers is ridiculous. No need for this with the Ranger RX. Well recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I needed While shopping around between Profoto, Broncholor and Elinchrom, I ultimately opted for Elinchrom and am completely satisfied.I already own the Ranger Quadra from Elinchrom and needed something a little more powerful and transportable. This is the perfect remedy AND I can use my Skyport system to control the strength of the light without ever having to get out from behind the camera and waste my clients' time.The power is substantial and even shot after shot. .... This is an incredible product and I am an Elinchhrom customer for life. I love their products.PS - The battery box and control unit are very heavy compared to the Quadra but I use it as a sandbag on a C-Stand! :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Heavy duty, great light quality! I was thinking about buying a Quadra RX for ages, but I finally decided on a Ranger. I am extremely happy about the build quality, very easy to use, perfect for on-location jobs under mid day summer sun. More power is always useful when needed. I use it with 3 canon 580EX II, works out great. This kit is heavy but I love the heavy duty cable and battery casing. I also bought a Lowe Pro PRO ROLLER x300 CASE for this kit. it fits the battery unit and two heads perfectly. Just to mention that you might need to buy a extension cable with the kit as the original cable is not long enough when use on a long boom pole.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Good Product I use this lighting system for weddings, Modeling, & Portraits it is by far the best system that I have ever used. Easy to pack around and lots of power to this day yet I have never used full power. If you buy this systems buy the skyports wireless remotes but be carefull the ones that hook up to the power pack come off real easy. I glued a wire to them & then attached them to the power pack. The sync cable that comes with it doesn't give you a lot of room to move around. The sky Port gives you over a 100 feet to move aroumd. Also at full power you should get 250 shots per battery.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great kit but Lead Acid?! I can't say anything bad about performance but I'm dropping stars for the junky case and the Pb acid battery. When they come out with a Li Ion replacement, it will get 4.5, less the junky case. Just send me a box and let me put the savings towards a proper pelican case and it will be five stars. A universal wireless trigger would also be nice. I keep loosing track of the adapter and forget what works with what (I have two Quadrs packs too). Maybe built-in Pocket Wizard compatability since 99% of us have them already?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great kit I was using the profoto D1 250 studio kit and a big difference between the two. I wanted a battery powered system that would be able to over power the sun at some points and the great stoping seconds is superb! The kit is heavy but looks great and feels great!I had to re order due to the first order being scratched. But I hope the second one isnt scratched and I'm sure this will blow away my standards of what I expect from lighting!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect as Expected from Elinchrom The second Ranger Kit I have purchased. Very strong power pack and perfect lighting.
Date published: 2008-07-21
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best money could buy I was debating on getting self contained units/ generator powered units/ and battery powered units.... the the Ranger Speed AS covers exactly what I need. I have used it in studio/ home/ outdoors in wet weather with no problems ever. I gave it 4 stars for the Case it comes with which is made of molded plastic and feels flimsy but does the job. 5 stars for the actual unit without a doubt. this is lighter than most units I was considering.
