Hensel Integra 500 Monolight
Key Features
  • 500W/s
  • Multi-voltage (110-240 VAC)
  • 6-Stop Power Range
  • 300W Modeling Lamp
The Hensel Integra 500 Monolight provides the control, power and the quality features that photographers, no matter their field, desire. Start with its flexible power setting allowing precise output selection from its 500W/s capacity over six f/stops in 1/10 stop increments. Settings are visible on an easy-to-read LED screen. The powerful 300W modeling light is strong enough for the multi-tasking image maker to shoot video and for strobe work it can be set to proportional to preview the effect of the flash. Besides fan-cooling, which lengthens the life of the flash tube and modeling lamp, as well as the unit's circuitry, an electronic system continuously monitors the unit's operation, ensuring that after a user-adjustable interval (5-90 min), the modeling light power is reduced to a preset value. As soon as the unit is reactivated, the previous value is restored.

The powerful 300W modeling light is strong enough for the multi-tasking image maker to shoot video and for strobe work it can be set to proportional to preview the effect of the flash.

As soon as the unit is reactivated, the previous value is restored.

The Integra 500 boasts short flash durations of 1/500 sec. (t0.1) and a very short recycling time of only 2.2 seconds at full power. The durable, extruded aluminum alloy cylindrical body features a built-in ergonomic handle and improved quick-action reflector mount. The stand mount, fixed on previous models, now slides along the body so that the correct fulcrum point can be found to counterbalance front-heavy accessories like large softboxes. Other features include visual and audible recycling alerts, a user replaceable flash tube and a protective dome.

Six Stop Range

Adjustable in 0.1 stop clicks, on the illuminated front panel, from full to 1/32 power output

Optical Slave

Built-in optical slave allows wireless firing without a sync cord

300W Modeling Light

The smart 300W modeling light goes far beyond conventional full and proportional power operation. An electronic system continuously monitors the unit's operation, ensuring that after user-adjustable time (5 - 90 min.), the modeling light power is reduced to a preset value. As soon as the unit is reactivated, the previous value is restored.

User Replaceable Flash Tube

Economical and easy to replace flash tube minimizes downtime

Fan-Cooled

Fan cooling lengthens the life of the flash tube, modeling light and the flash head's electronics

Flash Check

  • Dims the modeling light while charging the capacitors
  • When the capacitors are at 100%, the modeling light relights
  • Protective Glass Dome

  • Surrounds the flash tube for added safety
  • Optional glass domes available for control over color temperature of the flash
  • Compact Ergonomic Design

  • Strong cylindrical aluminum alloy housing with cast aluminum alloy reflector mounting
  • Built-in handle
  • Shifting pan-tilt support balances heavy accessories

    question

    How can I tell which model is the one with max flash sync of 1/125th and the other 1/250th?
    Asked by: Anonymous
    The maximum sync speed would be camera dependent, as this monolight or the Hensel Integra Plus 500W/s Monolight with FREEMASK B&H # HEIP500PFM can sync at any shutter speed.

    I'm thinking about getting two of these, what do I need to trigger wirelessly? I have a Canon 5D mk III
    Asked by: Roy
    With a basic 1/4" phono cable connector the Integra 500 Monolights can be triggered by basically any 3rd party trigger/receiver setup. You would just need a trigger, 2 receivers and the appropriate connecting cables. Also available are the Integra Plus 500 units https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/755853-REG/Hensel_8815FM_Integra_Pro_Plus_FREEMASK.html which have our proprietary Strobe Wizard Plus receiver built in which allows for triggering, remote power control and turning on and off the modeling lamp.

    question

    Whats the mounting size, 5/8 or 3/8?
    Asked by: Carlos D
    The mounting bracket on the Integra 500 accepts any standard 5/8 baby pins but is also deep enough that it will accept pins with integrated 3/8 threads common on many light stands.
