Ultimate Creative Power.
Creo from Bowens is the pinnacle of performance, reliability, robustness and value.
These professional power packs come in 1200Ws and 2400Ws models, both boasting specifications that, until now, could only be found on the most expensive generators.
The precision performance of the Creo, including flash durations as quick as 1/7692 second and colour stability from flash to flash as stable as ±40k, coupled with the legendary build-quality of Bowens means these packs are perfect for hard-working commercial studios and rental houses alike.
Pack power is easily operated with the intuitive control panel, allowing all features to be quickly set at the touch of a button.
The packs can also be operated without ever leaving your camera position with the optional Creo Infra-Red remote control.
"Creo" means 'to create' – the ease and speed of operating these professional, feature packed generators allows you to do just that with no complications.
The integrated Radio Trigger Card slot allows you to plug in a Pulsar Radio Rx Card delivering wireless freedom.
The Creo also features two surface mounted Photocells to sync the pack perfectly with any remote flash.
For the traditionalist the Creo pack has two 1/4" jack sync sockets for connecting a sync cord to your camera.
Cool Under Pressure.
Creo packs are equipped with an advanced cooling and protection system designed to prevent heat build-up and ensure that the pack is always operating at optimum performance.
Multiple fans automatically switch to increase airflow through the pack when required and the charge limiter monitors system conditions and will automatically adjust the charge rate if necessary to protect the pack as indicated with the Speed LEDs.
The Control Panel.
The intuitive digital control panel of the Creo professional power packs makes precision control fast and simple.
Power to each of the two channels can be quickly adjusted in stops or tenths of stops at the touch of a button.
Other features such as Modelling control, Ready indication and Recharge speed can be easily set with LEDs clearly showing their status.

*Please be aware that the Creo 1200 and Creo 2400 generators should not be used with the BW-7685 Quad/Quadx 5m extension cable (or any other extension cable) as it may damage your Creo to do so.
The Creo is designed to operate with the Creo head BW-7760. It may also be used with the earlier Bowens Quad heads, though these will not offer optimal performance in extremely fast, repetitive shooting, for which we strongly recommend the BW-7760. The earlier Quad Mini heads (BW-7646, BW-7652 and BW-7647) are not compatible with the Creo and should not be used with it at all; nor should other earlier Bowens heads, or non-Bowens heads.
The Creo has a Radio Trigger Card slot for use with the Bowens Pulsar Trigger Card. Bowens is currently updating the BW-5170 Receiving Card as some inference issues have been identified with the Creo in a couple of markets. We therefore recommend that you use the Pulsar Trigger BW-3965 as the transmitter with either a Pulsar BW-5150 Transceiver or the BW-5150/B Receiver plugged into the 1/4" Jack Sync Socket (marked A on the Creo Overview in the User Guide). Alternatively, other good quality radio trigger systems such as Pocket Wizard etc. will operate the Creo.
The BW-5170 Receiver card operates normally in Gemini monoblocs across all markets.
If you have any questions on these matters, please contact your distributor or Bowens direct.
