01-0500-02 PRIOLITE MBX 500

The units feature replaceable battery drawers that allow unlimited flash power without mains supply. The batteries can be charged inside and outside of the housing of the
flash unit.

All devices offer a bright, easily visible display for flash power setting. The flash power is adjustable in 1/10 f-stops using a turning knob. There is an internal power reduction when the flash power is dumped; in this case, no flash has to be manually released.

The Omega shaped flashtube has a long life-span; in case, it can be user-friendly replaced through a 3-point connection system. For flash triggering, the devices have a switchable photocell; a switchable audio signal indicates flash readiness. A temperature-controlled build-in fan prevents from overheating.

The devices are already prepared for radio operation with built-in remote control modules. The flash units can be individually controlled by the Priolite radio remote control; they
communicate bi-directional over distances up to 300 m.

The flash power setting of an individual flash unit appears on the RC display and can be adjusted, modeling light options can be selected and flashes can sent into ‘sleep mode’. Up to 36 wireless flash devices can be remotely power controlled and triggered.

The massive reflector mechanics works with no external adapter to hold accessories from Bowens SLine and many Hensel reflectors. Except for the handle, all parts of the units are constructed of solid metal. The support rail profile is made of aluminum casting, the reflector mechanics is made of die-cast aluminum.

The especially strong tilting head allows for tilting and rotation of the device and can hold even heavy lighting accessory like big softboxes or octaforms.

The LED modeling light at the MBX 500 provides a bright light by preserving the battery.
