    Comments about Wein SSH Safe-Sync:

    This allows me to use my PocketWizard to trigger my older Norman powerpacks without risk of frying the electronics in the PocketWizard due to the higher voltage on the trigger circuit of the powerpacks. You can have the circuits modified but after shipping that's going to cost more than this item. This is a quick and easy solution to protect your modern electronic camera gear from the ravages of the old high-voltage power packs.

      We only use these in the event of a slave failure, but we tested them to verify they worked. Replacing old ones that had failed.

              I purchased this to use with an older flash unit and a modern DSLR along with 4x5 setups.

              It works fine with most of my cameras, I'm not sure if it's an issue with a DSLR I use or this safe-sync unit, but there has been some inconsistent firings.

              This issue isn't anything that would make me return the item.

                  I have used this product with a sync cord between my Canon 5D mark II and my antique Photogenic AA01A Flash unit. Also works well with a cheap photocell slave to trip the Photogenic unit with my on-camera speed light. It takes away the worry about zapping my camera and optical trigger with the high sync voltages found in the older flash units.

                                    I bought the RadioPopper JrX radio flash system and made an adapter cord from the receiver to the HH plug on the Speedotron 1201 power pack. Didn't work. I saw a thread on the internet where some folks claimed the Wein SafeSync would fix the problem. IT DID!! It works great and makes the two systems talk successfully.

                                    For older, AC sync strobes like the Speedotron 2403, the Wein Safe Sync will protect your pricey Pocket Wizard gear. The voltages on such strobes have been known to electrify older, tougher cameras like my Nikon F2s, and cause an electric tingle on your nose when shooting. Modern digital cameras, borne of massive electronics (not to mention amateur-only shutter lifespans) would likely fry without this protection. Same goes for wireless stuff like Pocket Wizards, the latest generation of which are massively electronics-centric. You can't go wrong with the Wein Safe Sync!

                                      I am a professional photographer using several lumedyne units for all my on-location shoots..I recently purchased a Myco Sync Wireless digital transmitter & receiver unit. My trigger voltage was 60 volts above the Micro Sync 60 max.I could not find anything near our city.After consultation with B & H I purchased a Weins SSH safe-sync voltage regulater.So easy to use. Just plugged it in and started shooting.Its rugged construction and small profile make it one of my best purchases of the year. Tks. B&H I am very happy with this product and its paid for itself over & over.

                                        I found out I needed this little gem when I purchased a MicroSync transmitter/receiver for H prong High voltage speedotron power pack. Unfortunately on the back of the receiver it tells you not to use it in high voltage pack (go figure). I did try it since I was assured the only thing would happen is the receiver would just lock up after the first flash and not work anymore until unplugged; which is exactly what happened. Anyway I bought the unit plugged it in to the 1205 pack and plugged the MicroSync receiver into the safe sync and all is well. I expect the Wein safe sync to be a high quality and reliable unit as all Wein components that I have purchased have been.
