A u t o nomous Flash
Ranger RX System
The upgraded Ranger RX unit, plus the new
Speed and Speed AS units are designated
RX because they may be operated by remote
control – by computer or by a handset – enormously increasing the ease of use on location.
The basic unit has an improved “fast” recycling
sequence and the Speed unit will recycle to full
power in 2.9 seconds plus up to 250 flashes.
Why Ranger RX Speed AS & Ranger
RX ?
• Consistent flash power at any battery level.
• Guide number all units max. power
f-64.1 @ 2 m distance 100 ISO
• Charger, Multi-voltage with European, USA
and UK adapters.
• Battery re-charging - to full power- 3 hours.
The Speed unit is available with either 2:1
asymmetrical or symmetrical output.
It incorporates the most advanced miniaturised
components weighing in at only 8 Kg – much
lighter and smaller than any comparable unit.
The same modified circuitry has permitted an
extension of its power range to 7 f-stop, with
enhanced stability. We believe these will be the
units to which others will be compared.
• The charger can charge the battery in the
unit or externally.
• Power saving, auto cut off of modelling
lamp and charging
• Modelling Lamp modes, 15 s, 30 s & off
• Battery Charge Indicator, two green LED
100%, one green LED 50%, one red LED
approx. 10%. The Ranger electronic protects
the battery from over and complete discharging. The battery can be recharged at any
level. There is no “Memory-Effect”!
• Battery-Box Quick Release, to release, press
the two push buttons at the left and right
side of the housing, lift up the unit releasing
the existing battery - then place the pack
over the replacement battery, pressing firmly
down for automatic locking.
• Moisture resistant rubber protectors.
• Raised sockets complete with covers; electronics only in the upper part of the unit.
• Photocell, adapted to release in bright
ambient light.
• Charge Ready Beep, on/off, with green LED
indicator.
• Charge Ready Light / Open Flash, indicated
with bright LED!
• Auto Dump Function, adjust power levels
after setting automatically

E l i n c hrom Remote Studio
Mac OSX & Windows
Need to control your Elinchrom studio flash system together with your
digital camera controls on the same computer?
Additional features such as Flash and Power On Counters are useful for
Rental and Service.
You want it? We made it...
Take a look @ ERS and let it roll! Scan the Flash-Net... After installing
ERSMAC Software, connect your Style RX compacts or Digital RX power
packs to your computer. Open ERSMAC, the Elinchrom Software starts
automatically to search for connected RX units.
In “Single Mode” each RX unit can be operated separately in all functions.
The Studio Mode and Net Mode enables global changes such as “stand
by” to be made by studio or to the complete network of studios.
ERS-Mac supports Apple Macintosh operating systems OSX 10.2.8 and
higher

Slow Charge, on/off.
Easier control of all functions.
Last But Not Least The ERS Setup facilitates customised settings.
Place RX flash units in four different Studios or working areas and
address the RX flash units from Unit 1 to Unit 16.
ERS-Windows offers the same controls and settings as ERS Mac and
supports Win 98 SE, 2000 and XP.

Control
The Hand Remote Control
enormously increases the flexibility
of all “RX” flash units. Optional
remote cables in 1.2 to 19.2 m,
the integrated highly sensitive
photocell and the 3.5 mm sync
socket helps to control and trigger
any RX flash unit at long distances.
This item operates all functions of
Style 300 RX, 600 RX and
1200 RX.
The RX power pack range Digital
RX 1200/2400 and the new
Ranger RX battery powered
system accepts the same Hand
Remote and operates almost all
functions.
