FIRING A STROBE LIGHT


Recommended Posts

yes

it all depends on the strobe - in 2007 i used strobes that were constantly powered 12v and used a 120v relay to trigger the firing wire

I am not sure where to get the strobes, as I had purchased and built them several years ago

There are a few ways to do it. Optoisolated trigger and Transformer isolated trigger


The TRIAC that He shows in the Schimatics; Is The TRIAC that is on your Strobe already.

I have Done the One with the Transformer and It worked.




THIS IS VARY DANGERUS AND CAN BE DEADLY, I AM NOT RESPOSIBLE FOR WHAT MAY HAPPEN FROM WHAT I SAY.
ALSO Please Note To discharge the Capacitors, 250Vdc Easy


+Look at the parts inside the strobe And Find the TRIAC
