I don't believe ikelite supports eTTL for non ikelite strobes. I'm not sure about Subal

I do know that the eTTL circuitry in the ikkie housing needs power, it get this from the Ikelite strobe. Other strobe manufacturers cannot (do not) provide this power.

I have an ikelite 5D housing and an inon z240 and I'm going to try and modify the ikkie housing to fire the strobe using a fast LED via fibre optic. But I'm a way away from implementing it.

You can get it with the z240 and Subal, but you need a 6 pin adapter on the housing and a heinrichs or equivalent external ttl converter. I used to run all my inons that way.
