Hello -

I recently acquired a Hensel Interga Pro Plus 500 system.

The problem seems to be with the included Strobe Wizard Plus transmitter.
Uses a single 3v cr2 battery.

Unit would not fire after 2 days use, used sync cord no prob.

Replaced battery and all was well, until the following day. Once again the unit would not fire. I had gotten 2 batteries, so replaced the day old battery with a new one. Unit fired reliably thereafter. Removed battery when I was done.

There is no power off for the transmitter and instructions claim low power consumption and a battery life of 1 to 2 years with regular use.

So, I'm removing the battery after each use for now.

Anyone got any experience with this?

Several things are possible. Could be a defective remote. The batteries might have been defective. Did you check the voltage of the batteries that you removed to see what their voltage might be?
Cheers,

Don't have a V meter handy.

Planning to give Hensel a call Monday.

Thought I might get a heads up solution from those with similar experiences.

I like the remote as it provides a way to adjust strobe power without having to walk to the light(s). Otherwise, it would only be a minor irritation.

Thanks for the reply -
