    The website's compatibility chart shows it being compatible up to the 600r. That's not to say it won't work with the 1200w/s Profoto CF strobe, it just hasn't been tested. The Explorer XT shows it can be used with strobes up to 2400w/s, so it's possible that it will work. You could always contact the company and ask. That's one of the surest methods of finding out.

    I have the Explorer 1200, which is the lowest-powered model. I use it with smaller power supplies, like 400 and 600 watt-second power packs. And although it will power a Speedotron 2400 watt-second pack, the recycle times with that much of an overload are too long for my taste. I would be tempted to go with the XT or XT SE, since those have a higher power rating than the 1200 model. Check the manufacturer's extensive compatibility list if there's doubt. These are not designed to power "digital" flash units.

    Shipped straight from their company on the Islands. You have to buy from Tronix.
