The Ikelite Fiber Optic Adapter for DS Substrobes converts the electrical bulkhead of any Ikelite DS Substrobe into a fiber optic port. This adapter is a manual exposure (non-TTL) trigger only. The strobe's output is adjusted using the manual power settings built into the strobe. The fiber optic adapter automatically configures itself to be compatible with both pre-flash and non pre-flash camera modes for convenient use. An individual fiber optic adapter is required for each Substrobe. The adapter is depth rated to 300' (90 m). This unit is compatible with all Ikelite DS Substrobes, including DS50, DS51, DS125, DS160, DS161 and DS200 models. It is not compatible with the AF35 AutoFlash.
Aside from an Ikelite DS Substrobe, other requirements for the use of the fiber optic adapter include one of the following fiber optic cables (not included and not available for sale through Ikelite): INON Optical D Cable "Non-wireless type" L-Connector (or wireless converted to non-wireless), SEA&SEA Fiber Optic Cable (L-type) Product No. 50107, Olympus UW Fiber Optic Cable PTCB-E02, Nauticam Optical Fiber Cable No. 26211 Nauticam to INON, or Nauticam Optical Fiber Cable No. 26212 Nauticam to SEA&SEA. The adapter also requires a compatible camera and a compatible housing that allows use of the camera's built-in flash and has a means by which to attach a fiber optic cable.
