question

will this work withMultiblitz Profilux ?400 2-Monolight Lighting Kit
Asked by: Shaefy N.
This power pack is only for use with it's own dedicated flash heads such as the Profoto ProHead Plus Flash Head with Zoom Reflector B&H # PRPHP. To power the Multiblitz Profilux 400 monolights on location, the Dynalite XP800 Pure Sine Wave Inverter B&H # DYXP800 would be something to consider. This inverter would have standard AC outlets on it which will accept the AC plugs on your monolights. Please see the image below for reference.
