Maximize your production uptime

We created the D2 Industrial to handle the enormous demands large volume photography puts on lighting. Featuring selected long-life components, including a Quartz Flash Tube and upgraded internal circuit boards, this flash is built to go the distance.

We developed the firmware with scale in mind, with an industrial feature set, such as predictive maintenance and adjusted parameters for a longer lifetime. The Profoto D2 Industrial comes with the standard 1-year warranty and the option to extend for up to 5 years.

The workhorse for large volume photography

Engineered for world-class volume photography, the Profoto D2 Industrial has everything you need and nothing you don't. We've taken away the features you're unlikely to use, like TTL and HSS, and placed the emphasis firmly on heavyweight shooting power, reliability and durability.

As a result, the D2 Industrial is relentless, taking on thousands of exposures day after day, hour after hour with consummate ease. Ensuring each shot has the same level of high-end consistency, color stability, and light quality; making Profoto the go-to system for leading studios worldwide.

Why choose the Profoto D2 Industrial

Predictive maintenance

Add Profoto Maintenance to minimize the risk of unexpected production stops and costly repairs. We will notify you when it's time for a service and when you need to exchange flash tubes, and you can check your usage directly on each unit. Peace of mind so you can continue to produce high-quality images day in, day out.

Quartz - Long life flash tube

When shooting industrial volume, you need the power of quartz. The Profoto D2 Industrial comes with this high-performance, long-life flash tube.

High performance firmware

We designed the firmware to ensure D2 Industrial's critical components last longer; without sacrificing performance. For example, removing TTL and HSS will significantly prolong the life of the Quartz flash tube.

Prepared for automization

The D2 Industrial has a built-in interface for serial communication through the USB port. So, if you're shooting images in significant volumes, you can automize selected parts of your workflow by integrating flash control, and flash presets into your proprietary production software.
