|5v Optical Flash Kit (DIY kit) (instructions: click here)|
Model: OPTICAL-SLAVE-KIT : DIY Assembly kit !
POWERFUL: The 50ws kit fires a flash as powerful as a FULL POWER FLASHGUN.
GREAT for DIY projects:
|5v Optical Flash Kit (DIY kit) - Soldering instructions|
Step 1: Place small components
According to the part list, identify R1-R4 using the given color codes or refer to the image below.
Step 2: Continued
Now pay attention: insert the D1 diode into it's place, while the diode's marked white side is oriented to the PCB's marked bold white stripe.
Step 3: Transformer
Take the T1 square yellow transformer which has 5 pins (XFT-1610) and place it, should snap in easily, and solder it.
Step 4: Trigger coil and Flash Tube
A little effort, just a few components left: the Trigger coil (yellow, 3 wires) , the U-shape flash tube, and the big capacitor.
Step 5: BIG power !
Place the BIG capacitor C3 into the PCB while the NEGATIVE PIN IS MARKED BY A WHITE STRIPE ALONG IT.
Step 6: Solder Sync port and power source
Place the 3.5mm Sync socket on the corner of the PCB, and solder it. The sync voltage through this socket is about 7v.
OPTIONAL: opto-Isolated triggering
you can trigger the unit using an external 5v pulse source,
like a micro-processor - INSTEAD of triggering with the optical flash detector. This is done by using
a MOC3020 optocoupler (order here)
Done ! now you can power it.
There are very few things that can go wrong here. please check that:
