For setting up the flash power, the device features a 3-digit LED display, which additionally simplifi es the set up of further parameters. The important signal “ready”,is displayed by the illumination of the test button and additionally, by the illumination of the glass dome placed on the top side of the device. Thereby the readiness of the flash is seen very easily even from a far distance.
PFC – sophisticated high perfomance power supply
The integrated high performance power supply provides constant current during loading the capacitors. The main fuse of the building is protected this way, so that many flash units can be used within one power circuit without blowing the fuse. The technical term for this module is called Power Factor Correction (PFC).
Rugged base, safe protection
The housing base of the MB500 represents an extrusion profile. It holds its components safely, that results into an extreme rugged system. An elongated hole under the housing enables to fix flash umbrellas and leads them safely over the complete length. Furthermore the umbrellas are clamped with a secured screw, so clamping will not damage the umbrella stick. Umbrellas can be used up to 10 mm stick diameter.
The standard equipment includes a glass dome in various coatings. It provides an excellent protection and enables modifi cation of the color temperature.
Constant light distribution
The MB500 operates with a flash tube in omega form. In comparison to a U-formed tube, it provides a better light and an extreme constant light distribution. The flash tube is pluggable and exchangeable by the user. The flash triggering can be done by synch cable, by slave, by IR-flash or by radio remote control. The synchronous voltage is 5 V. Therewith a safely handling with all established modern cameras, is assured.
Bidirectional radio controllable
The MB500 is featured with a bidirectional radio controlled module. This module operates together with the Priolite remote control, which can be attached to the Hot Shoe of the camera. Nearly all functions of the flash device can be controlled on telecommand. The radio control displays the power setting of the device and its flash readiness. By organizing in 4 teams, each with 9 devices, in total 36 devices can be individually controlled. The system operates in a frequency range of 2.4 GHz, which is world wide approved for these applications.
Compatible accessories kit
The Priolite adapter system is compatible to Bowens S-type Bayonets as well. A lot of Hensel reflectors can be fixed with this clamp mechanism, too.
What is in the box?
The flash unit comes with a sync cable, a power cable, the flash tube, and the glass dome.
