Here's the link to Pulso 2/4/8 manual: http://bit.ly/yzsXjy
I asked a similar question regarding the Pulso heads, and here's the response from Broncolor US:
The Pulso 2 and Pulso 4 lamp head have detection resistors on the circuit baords. Pulso 2 has a 22k and Pulso 4 has a 33k resistor. These resistors were put there so that the Pulso 4 and Pulso 4A pack (only) would know whether the lamp head is a 1600ws or 3200ws. If you were to connect a Pulso 2 lamp base (1600) to a Pulso 4/4A pack and put the power level at 10. The power display will not display the power level because it knows that the lamp head is a 1600ws. But that is only for the Pulso 4/4A power pack. All other packs Grafit, Primo, Topas, Scoro etc. whether the lamp head is 1600 or 3200 will go up to power level 10.
Now imagine 1600ws flash tube a bag and 3200 flash tube another bag. The 3200ws flash tube being a bigger bag. If I have a 1600ws pack at power level 10 and dumped the energy into a flash tube whether 1600 or 3200ws it is only going to take the 1600ws. That is all the power pack has to give. Now lets say that we have a 3200ws pack and the energy is dumped into a 1600ws flash tube, the 1600ws bag is smaller. So what is going to happen is that as time goes on the life of the 1600ws flash tube will end before it's time because you are hitting it with too much power.
Therefore, I guess you should send an email to Salomon, the service manager of Broncolor US: srafael[at]bronimaging.com
