There are three major operating modes for the Strobe. These are Internal,
External and Charging (Battery powered model only). In the Internal
Mode, the knob adjusts the flash rate. In the External Mode, an external
signal from a remote sensor is used to trigger the flash and the knob has no
effect. The Charging Mode (Battery powered model only) is when the
strobe has the battery recharger plugged into it. The strobe will continuously
display the state of the battery charge while being recharged.
4.1 Internal Mode - Standard Strobe Operation
In the Internal Mode the stroboscope generates it’s own signals and
functions like a tunable stroboscope. The strobe is in the Internal
Mode when nothing is plugged into the input jack or when manually
set using the INPUT button.
To change the flash rate:
With the power on, turn the knob counter clockwise to increase the flash
rate and clockwise to decrease it. The knob is velocity sensitive. Turn the
knob slowly to have each “click” is equal to 0.01 FPM. Turning the knob
more quickly will adjust the FPM by larger steps. When adjusting flash
rate, quickly turn the knob (or use the x2 or ÷2 buttons) to coarsely
change the FPM. Then slowly turn the knob for fine adjustments.

will come loose, but it is not necessary to remove the reflector.
2. Hold the lamp with a cloth between your forefinger and thumb
and rock it back and forth gently while pulling out. Do not attempt
