I have four of these packs, 800 WS each. They are old, circa 40 yrs, I think. I also have six heads. The heads are actually made by Speedotron, are tough as Sherman Tanks, and about as heavy (they weigh several pounds). The connector fitting, though, fits the Ascor pack, not Speedo, and would have to be changed to be used w/ Speedo packs.

I do not use the Ascor's because I now have more modern, and safer gear. The Ascors are very much obsolete, and lack the safety features (no arcing, automatic capacitor discharge) of modern stuff. Also, the Ascor packs weigh 25 lbs each.

QUESTIONS:

Are these packs worth anything, or should I just toss 'em?
How much work and cost is it to convert the heads so they can plug into a different brand of strobe? There's nothing wrong w/ the heads, in fact, they are wonderful heads.

Everyone have a wonderful holiday season. Here in Los Angeles it's cold, and blowing a gale.

Is this the powerpack?

The one above is being listed for $565 and it looks like he has 7 of them. Interesting power comparison (shades of EWS).

I think you could put them on ebay and get something for them. But be sure to know what your shipping will be upfront so you can advertise that in the auction because most people don't realize the weight of these things to ship.

Cheers,
rfs
