The input jack is the one with the arrowhead pointing toward it (S
closest to the black knob) and enables an external signal to trigger the
strobe. Inserting a plug into the input jack will automatically put the
strobe into the External Mode. When the plug is removed, the strobe
will be put back into the Internal Mode. The Internal Mode can be
forced by pressing the INPUT button. The polarity of the input pulse
can be set in the MENU options.
The output jack is the one with the arrowhead pointing away from it
(T closest to the reflector). With no external input this output provides
a TTL compatible pulse from the strobe’s internal oscillator. If an
external input is applied, the output pulse is in sync with the input
pulse. This output pulse may be used to trigger a second stroboscope
synchronously to illuminate larger areas. Many strobes can be “daisy
chained”. The output jack of one strobe is connected to the input jack
of the next strobe causing all the strobes to flash together and be
controlled by the first strobe in the chain. The polarity of the output
pulse can be set in the MENU options.

6.2 Fuse Replacement
Under normal operating conditions, the fuse within the stroboscope
should never blow. Examples of abnormal operating conditions would
be foreign materials entering the strobe, such as water, pulp, ink, etc.
The AC Powered stroboscope has a replaceable fuse inside the unit,
which may be accessed by removing the lens and reflector - refer to
Figure 4. If the fuse needs to be replaced, replace only with a fuse of
the same type and value: Fast Blow - 750mA, 2AG.
WARNING: Before attempting to replace the fuse, make
sure the stroboscope is turned off and any
mains cord is removed from the AC outlet. Allow
the lamp to cool waiting at least 5 minutes.
The Battery Powered stroboscope has a resettable fuse, which will
reset once conditions are normal again.
