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 1200W/s power pack will provide a flash duration of 1/2500 second at full power, and a blistering 1/8100 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 7 stop range, displayed on its bright 7-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.
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 (6.12 kg) total weight but 1200W/s output
Extremely fast flash recycle times from 0.2 sec.
Extremely short flash duration up to 1/8100 sec (with Speed Head)
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
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
