PocketWizard ReceieversNorman ML400R and ML600R models include built-in PocketWizard™ receivers
Norman Monolights are also available with built-in PocketWizard™ radio receivers. This unique feature allows the use of multiple lights in the studio or on location without the hassle of sync cords, and it eliminates the risk of inadvertent tripping of your lights from other strobes in the area. The built-in PocketWizard™ receiver can be set to operate from any channel selected on a compatible PocketWizard™ transmitter.

Having the PocketWizard™ receiver built into the ML400R and ML600R eliminates the need to carry and keep track of a separate receiver module and compatible cable. Best of all, the built-in unit is powered directly from the monolight, eliminating the need for batteries.
Monolight Communication Software:
WIth the Communication Software Kit, a PC can now be used to run the Norman Monolights in your studio. Complete control of every function is available, with an on-screen display that is laid out to look like the control panel of the Norman ML400/ML600 series Monolights. Multiple unites can be displayed and controlled, each with a unique on-screen position and name that relates to your set-up.
Each kit includes software and a 25' cable to connect the first monolight. Additional cables are available for using your PC to control multiple monolights in your studio.
