The general work horse of the line. This is a 400 WS maximum power lighting unit which can be plugged into any of the 4 Outlet jacks.The light heads of the FlashMaster system are very lightweight compared to the weight of a monolight. This is because the monolights must contain all of the power supply components inside each monolight case. The light heads of the FlashMaster system only contain the flashtube and select components of the triggering circuit. This greatly reduces the weight. If you have ever put monolights on stands you know how unstable it can be unless you use extra heavy duty stands. The extra weight of putting the power supply components inside the case of the monolight increases the chance of an expensive accident. Further, there is also the overkill in putting all the power of a monolight in at lease one of your setup locations. ( The hairlight) In this position alone, putting a monolight is both inconvenient, time consuming to setup and operate, and expensive if there is an accident.

The Photogenic Ion Lithium-ion Pure Sine Wave Inverter Module without Battery is the heart of the ION Inverter System which allows you to take your studio strobes on the road or off the road without electricity and without noisy generators or bulky old-style inverters. Weighing in at only 3.5 lb including its optional battery, the Ion measures only 7.5 x 4.4 x 3.3" but is able to deliver hundreds or even thousands of full power flashes depending on the flash head in use. For example, Photogenics 1,000W/s PL1000DR gets 300 full power flashes on a fully charged battery while their AKC160 will get a whopping 2,050 flashes from the same battery.
