    Elinchrom Ranger RX AS - power settings question.

    Hello,

    I just purchased an Elinchrom Ranger RX AS (asymetrical) power pack and have a question to those that use it as well.

    On the Ranger AS, if you connect the head to socket B only, should the power control range become smaller accordingly to indicate the decreased power range in that socket? Both the A and B sockets show 1.5 to 7.5 adjustment range, despite a completely different power output between them.

    In comparison to the Quadra RX power packs I also own, the power setting on the A port ranges from 6.0 (full) to 2.0 (minimum). On the B port power setting ranges from 4.4 down to 0.4 on the LED display, as the B socket has different (smaller) power output.

    Is this lack of change in display/adjustment values between sockets to be expected on the Ranger RX AS unit?

    Many thanks,
    Pat

    Hi Pat,

    According to an Elinchrom technician, this is normal (just got an email). The scale is shared between the sockets but there is no equivalency in power settings.

    Best,
    Pat
