12v Portable photography flash kit
|12v Photography Flash All-in-one (instructions: click here)|
Model: 12V-PHOTO-FLASH : ASSEMBLED MODULE
Adjustable power: The step-less knob allow you to select the needed flash power
FAST : Charges a 500uF capacitor to 300v in just 0.6s ! Or 120ws in only 3.4s .
POWERFUL, HIGH EFFICIENCY: The module is capable of charging capacitors of any size, thus can power a high-energy flash unit. The high-efficiency technology used in this circuit will both save you lots of battery power (more shots), and allow cooler operation, without any worry about excessive temperatures.
All-in-one: The module includes a visual LED and audible BEEP buzzer for READY notification when the desired power is charged. Also, it features a 3.5mm sync input and a TEST button
CUSTOMIZABLE: You can choose the right capacitors according to the power you need, so you don't end up paying for twice the capacitance you actually use. Output voltage range can also be customized using the on-board trimmers, you could set the minimum and maximum allowable voltages for adapting to a specific flash tube, for example.
GREAT for DIY projects: You can use this module as a readymade solution for powering your photography flash project, or even use it as a base circuit and modify it according to your project needs.
On-location / Outdoor flash system: Running on 12v, you can easily use it anywhere thanks to your car's battery, or even much smaller sized batteries like LiPo or other Lithium batteries. At any time you could also use it with a simple 12v wall adapter for unlimited indoor use. It is definitely the ideal Photobooth flash module. Imagine deploying and operating a portable photo-booth wihout the need for main power !
Capacitors and Flash lamp are sold separately. Choose your flash power :

|12v Photography Flash - Soldering instructions|
Step 1: Solder the capacitors
According to the following scheme, place the capacitors on the top side of the board, following the right polarity.
Locate the trigger coil, and connect its output (flying wire) to the lamp trigger terminal. This wire should be clipped short, and well insulated.
Step 2: Connect your lamp
Solder the capacitor terminals on this side. Pay attention to the middle trace linking the two capacitors:
The Xenon flash tube (lamp) should be connected to the two outermost terminals of the capacitors as shown below:
