The Hensel Nova DL 1200 Generator is made for photographers who need power coupled with very fast recycling and intuitive control features. The Nova DL features two flash head outlets with a large 7 segment digital readout that displays power variations across 8 stops in 1/10th stop increments. The symmetrical power distribution allows you to pump full power from a single channel for large light banks or assign it to 2 discrete channels. Conversely, you can apportion the power asymmetrically in a 60/40, 70/30 or similar ratio. The Nova DL 1200 delivers its output in a very fast 0.6 seconds at full power and as fast as 0.3 sec at minimum power with flash durations as short as 1/2,480 to 1/4,500 sec for extreme stop-action shooting. For those all-day shooting sessions you'll be glad to know that a cooling fan kicks in to ensure consistency from shot to shot while protecting the pack's electronics.
Triggering options include 1/4" phono plug for hardwiring, an optical slave, which responds to the firing of another flash, and radio triggering thanks to the Nova's built-in radio receiver. The receiver is compatible with Hensel Strobe Wizard Plus, Freemask and Profoto Air Sync transmitters, as well as Profoto's Air Remote which offers power and modeling light control as well as wireless triggering at distances up to 984'.
Precision and control also extends to the modeling lights on compatible EH flash heads. Power can be set to Proportional, to preview the effect of the of your flash ratio, On, Off, Full power and User Selectable, which allows you to adjust the modeling lamp intensity independently of the selected flash power. And, speaking of power, the Nova DL 1200's power supply is self-seeking 100-240VAC, allowing you to use it anywhere in the world. When operating in a nominal 120V environment the pack handles 300W lamps and in a 230VAC electrical environment lamps as high as 650W. If you're mixing later power packs with older legacy packs you'll appreciate that Hensel continues their tradition of using essentially identical nomenclature and positioning of switches and controls throughout the system. You might say that Hensel moves forward with an eye on where they've been.
