trigger the strobe. Inserting a plug into the input jack will put the strobe
into the External mode. The range for triggering is from 0 flashes per
second to 233 flashes per second (14,000 flashes per minute). The
display will only display down to 0.08 FPS (5 FPM). There is typically a
5 msec delay from trigger input to flash. The trigger source should provide
a pulse with a minimum duration (width) of 20 µsec.
The output jack is the
one with the arrowhead
pointing away from it (#
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 mimics 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.
2.0 LCD PANEL DISPLAY SYMBOL DEFINITION
Ext —External Mode active.
Tach —Tachometer Mode active (strobe won’t flash).
Alt Function —Indicates second function of each button and knob
will be used.
FPS —Flashes Per Second is on the display.
FPM —Flashes Per Minute is on the display.
$—Remote Sensor On Target Indicator.
- - - - - —Indicates input frequency exceeds the limit of the
LO BAT —(Battery Powered Model Only) Flashes on
display when the battery is getting low. It is on
steady when strobe must be recharged.
To turn on the stroboscope, depress the trigger. The trigger may be locked in
position using the side locking button. To do this while holding the unit in the right
hand, depress the trigger as far as it will go, and then using the thumb press the
locking button. You may release the trigger and the trigger will be held in place.
To release, simply depress the trigger and then release.
the lens notches onto the two small tabs to prevent lens rotation. Push
the tabs on the front rim outward and press the lens into place.
5.2 Low Battery Indication (Battery Powered Model Only)
When the batteries are low, the display blinks “LO BAT” every second.
The strobe may still be used for a short time. When the battery charge
is further depleted, the strobe will stop flashing, display “LO BAT” and
then completely shut off. The unit needs to be recharged. Remember
to release the trigger switch.
5.3 Battery Recharger (Battery Powered Model Only)
The unit should not be left on charge indefinitely as this will damage
the lead acid batteries.
TO AVOID SERIOUS DAMAGE TO THE STROBOSCOPE, USE ONLY
THE PROVIDED AND APPROVED RECHARGERS.
See Charger Mode Section 3.4 above.
