As I previously mentioned both lights can be powered by USB battery packs or chargers via USB-PD, V-mount batteries or AC mains power. The FC-60B can also use NP-F type batteries. All of these power options can run the fixtures at 100% output. The FC-60B draws 78W and the FC-120B 145W. USB-PD Mobile power banks or chargers need to support continuous power output of 30W or higher.

To ensure the FC-60B and FC-120B run as quietly as possible they are equipped with an adjustable cooling system including four fan modes: SMART, FULL SPEED, LOW SPEED and OFF. SMART mode automatically adjusts the fan speed according to the ambient temperature. Being able to select the optimal fan speed either automatically or manually is ideal for live recordings and other situations where background noise levels are a prime consideration.

In SMART mode, the fixture will automatically switch fan speed according to the ambient temperature. In SMART and FULL SPEED modes, the maximum output are 100%. In LOW SPEED mode, the maximum output is 50%.When the fan is off, the maximum output is 15%.

Size & Weight
