In Topic: Inon Z240 cannot "see" red light signal from Nauticam LED flash trigger?

28 May 2016 - 01:47 PM

Hi Nicolas,

Thanks for the info, it is very helpful.  The strobe settings look right, assuming the ACC magnets are down.

 

I don't see photos of the fiber optic cables, from the second video it doesn't look like they are genuine Nauticam cables.  PN 26211 should be used here.  Four different  strobes were tested today in my office, and they are all firing.  

 

If you can test the proper cables that would be a good next step.

Can you post photos of the optical cables, and a photo of exactly how you have the dials on the back of the strobe set?

They are shipping now, but my guess is that dealers are filling preorders placed in January...  Shipping forecasts will have to come from individual dealers based on their order queues.

The currently shipping YS-250 work with the standard manual trigger, fired optically.

 

There were some very early YS-250 strobes that were not compatible optically with our previous LED flash trigger.  The updated part in D5 and D500 has more power, but we haven't been able to test those early units unfortunately (because we don't have them any  longer).  We are hopeful that these recent updates allow all YS-250 to be triggered optically (manual power).

The standard LED flash trigger that ships in these housings is manual only.  

 

An accessory part, #26307, TTL Converter for Nikon (Compatible with NA-D5/D500, Sea & Sea YS-D and Inon Strobes), $430 is available to add TTL functionality with Sea & Sea YS-D1, YS-D2, Inon D-2000, S-2000, Z-240.  

 

Future revisions or iterations of that part are planned to support Sea & Sea YS-250, and Ikelite DS-160/DS-161.  

 

The TTL Converter supports both optical and electrical triggering.  With the currently compatible flashes, we recommend optical triggering for the best performance and accuracy.  YS-250 and DS-160 don't have optical/slave TTL functionality, so they'll require electrical triggering.
