Ikelite 4403 Optical Slave Converter for Remote Triggering of DS Strobes

Product Details

Trigger your Ikelite DS-series strobe off any camera or strobe flash. The Optical Slave Converter simply attaches to the strobe’s electrical bulkhead in place of a sync cord connector. The enlarged slave window provides an approximately 90 degrees field of view for remote triggering. Or thread on the included fibre optic port for the attachment of and triggering via a fibre optic cord.

The Optical Slave Converter can be extended using the optional 3-foot Extension Cord for creative backlighting in wrecks, caves, and pool studio set-ups. It can also be used above water for studio photography work. The Optical Slave Converter supports manual exposure modes as set on the attached DS strobe. TTL exposure mode is not supported.

An individual Optical Slave Converter is needed for each strobe. The use of multiple strobes requires one Optical Slave Converter per strobe. The Optical Slave Converter supports DS50, DS51, DS125, DS160, DS161, DS162 and DS230 strobes.

If your primary purpose is to trigger a flash through a camera housing, we recommend the Fibre Optic Converter instead.
