The FC-500C features a larger 11cm diameter fan that allows for efficient cooling at lower speeds. To minimize noise it has four fan modes (Smart / High Speed/LowSpeed / Off) that allow the user to manage lighting and audio recording requirements.

In Smart mode, the fan automatically adjusts its speed based on the ambient temperature, allowing for 100% power output while limiting the noise level to around 29 dBA*, making it suitable for professional projects.

  • In Smart mode or Full Speed mode, the maximum output is 100%.
  • In Low Speed mode, the maximum output is 50%.
  • In Off mode, the maximum output is 8%.

The FC-500C supports DC 48V input and can be powered either by the included power adapter or the external batteries (sold separately). When used with the FC Power Controller, the FC-500C can be powered by one or two 14.4-14.8V / 26V batteries.

The FC-500C fixture body is equipped with a USB port for firmware updates via a USB drive.
