  • OT - Crompton Strobe - anyone familiar with them?

    On my on going balancer project, originally I was going to use the super bright led clusters for a strobe. Pretty sure it will work, you even get enough of flash off a largish single led, but then this bench strobe popped up for small dollars. Its got a trigger, but I'm kind of stymied what it expects, with a 7 pin connector. Usually there's lots on the net about older equipment, but I could find nothing on this one.

    Anybody have one, access to a manual or is there any sort of trigger-in standard? Suggestions?

    thanks

    If you proceed with using an LED I suggest that you will probably avoid the white versions. They use a phosphor to convert some portion of a BLUE led output to a yellow light that mixes with the blue to give you white. That phosphor has a noticeable afterglow when the LED is de-energized. I used the ultra slow-motion feature of my camera to capture the afterglow. The blue, green and yellow LEDS should work because they don't use a phosphor.

    At the end of the project, there is a profound difference between spare parts and left over parts.
