Connecting Flash Units

Introduction Specs Settings Connecting Flash Units About Slave Flash Building Systems

These flash units can generates 350V DC which is stored in a large capacitor on the board. This voltage will not kill you, but will deliver a nasty SHOCK! For this reason, the project has a great benefit. It will teach you to work very carefully on equipment with high voltages and if you do get a shock, you will appreciate electricity EVEN MORE! Simply discharge the large capacitor with a screwdriver or jumper lead before working on the circuit. You don't want to get a bite or tingle each time I pick up or work on the board.  

There is no reason why beginners cannot experience working on this project as it contains non-lethal high voltages and is a very good grounding for electrical safety.  

General Wiring Diagram
How to connect any Flash Unit to the PixController Slave Flash Controller

Note: Do not use a Sealed Lead Acid battery (Gel Cell) to power your strobe flash.
The internal resistance of these batteries can cause the strobe board to
pull too much current damaging the PixController Slave Flash board.
Because of the unique design PixController developed for our Slave Flash
product a SLA battery will not be needed.
