Profoto Acute2 2400 Power Supply
- Product Details
Notes: This is a power supply denoting that it powers multiple flash heads via surge-protected, arc-proof proprietary plugs on a central box that connects to AC power via a power cord. This is NOT a portable battery unit for cordless strobe powering. This power supply is compatible with Profoto D4 heads, such as the Profoto 4800W/s D4/Acute 2 Flash Head or the Profoto 2400W/s D4/Acute 2 Ringflash Head, which are NOT included. It is identical to the Profoto Acute2R 2400 Power Supply with the exception of NOT having a Pocket Wizard brand radio transceiver built in. However, you can still plug in a Pocket Wizard using a 1/4-1/8 sync cable for wireless radio firing from your camera. A total of 2 Pocket Wizards will need to be rented to wirelessly fire this way. See these instructions for full information on the Acute2 system.Rental includes:
The Profoto Acute2 2400 Power Supply is a robust power supply with the ability to support up to 4 Profoto D4 flash heads, such as the Profoto 4800W/s D4/Acute 2 Flash Head or the Profoto 2400W/s D4/Acute 2 Ringflash Head. From this centralized box, you can control the power of up to 3 D4 or Acute heads with a total output of 2400W/s. The power supply allows you to connect your camera directly to it with a PC-in sync cable to fire the heads wirelessly or you can also rent a couple of Pocket Wizards and a 1/4-1/8 sync cable. As soon as the unit is turned on it is in “learn” mode and the first signal it receives it remembers. A built-in light-sensitive slave can be turned on or off. You can also individually control the power of your modeling lamps. While the power is AC only, the voltage is compatible the world over making this a safe choice for on-location shooting. You can shoot from around 300’ away from the power supply. When shooting at lower W/s powers you can potentially sync up to 1/1000th of a second, however, this pack is not designed specifically for high speed sync. To shoot at 100% power, you may be limited to a sync speed as low as 1/100th of a second. This power supply is ideal for indoor shooting.
