Ikelite Underwater Housings Manual Fibre Optic Transmitter for DL & DLM



Ikelite 44700 Manual Fibre Optic Transmitter for DL & DML Housings

Replace your Ikelite flash bulkhead with this compact, independently sealed device, for reliable fibre optic triggering of a compatible fibre optic underwater strobe. High frame rate burst shooting is supported when used with an Ikelite DS160, DS161, or DS230 Strobe and High Sensitivity Optical Converter # 4405.

The Ikelite Transmitter is powered by two CR2032 lithium single-use or rechargeable batteries (not included). The Transmitter has a built-in power save mode which prolongs battery life. Expect at least a week of diving out with average use. It is always recommended to travel with a spare set of batteries.

Connection to a compatible Ikelite flash hotshoe is required.

Please contact us regarding Housing, Strobe, and Hotshoe compatibility.

Typical Uses

  • Use one of the entry-level strobes that don’t have an electrical bulkhead.
  • Use fibre optic cords to eliminate extra waterproof connections.
  • Able to disconnect your strobe cords underwater for any reason. Imagine getting back to the boat at the end of a dive and wanting to shoot some split shots using natural light without having your strobes weighing you down. With fibre optic cords you can pop them off, use the unique Ikelite quick-release mount to disconnect your strobe arms and hand the whole assembly up to the boat crew.
