Impact POWERSYNC16A overview

  • 1Description

The Impact PowerSync16 AC Receiver (100-240VAC) is one-half of the PowerSync 16 radio slave system for triggering flash units up to 590' (180 m) away indoors, or 200' (60 m) outdoors using the PowerSync16 Transmitter (available separately).

PowerSync16 has 16 digitally coded channels available so you can even work at events with other photographers without flash or radio interference. You can trigger as many flashes as you like from a single one transmitter, as long as they're all on the same frequency and have this PowerSync16 AC receiver or DC receiver. Flash sync speeds of up to 1/250 second are possible with PowerSync16.

This receiver operates on 100-240VAC. The PowerSync system is not designed to perform in TTL mode with flash units -camera and flash must be set to Manual Mode.

Note: This remote does not provide high-voltage sync protection, and is not recommended for use with flash units that have a trigger voltage of more than 6V.

16 Reliable Channels
Digitally coded at 2.4 GHz for multiple set-ups; work at events with other photographers without the worry of flash or radio interference.
Extensive Range of Reliable Performance
590' (180 m) indoors; 200'+ (60+ m) outdoors. An above-average range for the most demanding situations (radio interference and low battery strength will lower your effective range).
Fast Sync Speeds
Compatible with most cameras, offering a maximum sync speed of 1/250 second; allows the user to capture most studio and event scenes.
Universal Voltage
AC version: The receiver offers the ease and convenience of global voltage (100-240V). The receiver utilizes current from a host flash lighting unit. Operate your receiver without the hassle of replacing batteries.

    Impact POWERSYNC16A reviews

    PowerSync16 AC Receiver (100-240VAC) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 19.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Flawless Performance! This receiver may seem a bit on the pricey side to you, but quality is definitely on it's side. From it's durable build quality to performance, this receiver works flawlessly and every time. I have a small portable studio setup so I am never stretching the boundaries of the radio reach, but I have never had a problem one with getting these things to fire my flashes. The connection is strong and consistent. This DC version is a godsend being as I don't ever have to worry about batteries failing. I also have the transmitter and an addition AC receiver for a Yongnuo flash that I sometimes use as a hair light or to simply flash the background of a portrait set. You will not be disappointed with this item!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Product Works ad advertised. Only one caveat. You may need to support the power cord that you plug into this product (possibly by clamping it to the light stand). Otherwise, the weight of the cord may cause it come loose.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works exactly as expected - good value I use this AC receiver with my Novatron strobes, it's small and just works. With a small sync cord and the lanyard attached to the power pack handle it's always right where I expect it without having to worry about batteries. I didn't do much of a range test, but I was able to successfully trigger them from the other side of my home through a few walls, at least 40 feet.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Flawless...indoors I use the Impact PowerSync in studio and on location. Indoors it performs flawlessly, but outside (even within a few feet) absolutely worthless if it is sunny out. Even if it is positioned in the shade! I use it with Photogenic, Alien Bees and White Lightning monolights. If you are interested in using it indoors, I highly recommend it for its low cost and reliability.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Consistent, especially for the price I've used Impact triggers in a professional studio and on-location for about three years and I've found them to be consistent and reliable. For the price, they are a bargain, but lack any special bells and whistles such as being able to adjust your flash settings from a distance. They do what they do very well, which is simply trigger the flash heads.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well designed I bought the receiver with several emitters as I often use several cameras within the same studio session. I appreciate the ease of use, reliability and good synchro speed. Note synchro speed is also dependant on the flashes themselves.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Like Magic Works as promised, no fuss. Used these in a small studio setup to trigger some very old strobes. Connected everything and just started shooting. No more wires.
