Steady strobe lights – not flash

I find direct links to the products very helpful if you have time to go that extra mile.I would appreciate a recommendation on a good sturdy strobe light that I can fit into a fairly large size Octabox. Will need a mount for this.

I am discovering that when I use my speed lights and I have been shooting for a while with my client, it can cause me slight dizziness and nausea. It  would be  much better for me to have my subject in front of a steady strobe light. Up to this point, I have been using Nikon speed flashes on light stands.

I shoot both indoors in a home studio that I have set up and outdoors during nice  non-winter  weather. This strobe will have to have enough power to contend with the sun, although,  I do attempt to find open shade whenever possible,  which is my preference for outdoor shooting.  I generally shoot with ambient light, but find that sometimes flash is necessary to overcome shadows in the face.

I do not own a strobe  like the one I am describing here  at this time and would appreciate recommendations on what  is a good brand for consistent lighting, rather than flash. I find direct links to the products very helpful if you have time to go that extra mile.

(I shoot with a Nikon D750.)

Thank you
