The PowerTrigger 16 Channel AC Transmitter and Receiver Set from Impact contains everything you'll need to wirelessly trigger your studio AC flash units at distances up to 75'. The set includes a 16 channel transmitter and receiver as well as a 2.5mm sub-mini to PC cable, a 3.5mm to 1/4" monoplug adapter and a pre-installed battery for the transmitter.

The low-profile 1.2 x 1.6 x 2.8" PowerTrigger transmitter has a hot shoe for your camera, a test button, and 16 separate channels operating on the 433 MHz frequency to prevent interference from other devices. Channels are chosen on both the transmitter and receiver by configuring 4 DIP switches in 1 of 16 permutations on both the transmitter or receiver for wireless triggering from up to 75' away with flash sync speeds of up to 1/200 second. The transmitter runs on a pre-installed, 23A battery that can last up to 2 years with normal use.

Unlike the transmitter, the PowerTrigger receiver doesn't use batteries and is instead powered by the same AC cord that's used for your monolight. Think of it as an in-line receiver. Simply plug the end of the power cord into the receiver then plug the receiver's power cord into the head's power outlet. Finally, plug the PowerTrigger's attached 3.5mm sync cable into the flash. A 1/4" mono plug adapter is provided if the head doesn't have 3.5mm input. If you don't know what your flash head's sync voltage is, or if you're using an older unit you might want to purchase a Wein Safe-Sync adapter (MFR# 990-510) to insure that the sync voltage remains under 6V. The Safe Sync's monoplug attachment can be easily adapted to 3.5mm if necessary.

Impact PowerTrigger Reviews

Great for plug-in strobes

By James
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2022-06-10

i love the fact that the receivers never need batteries since they get the power from the AC to the strobes. Likewise, I expect the lithium batteries for the transmitters to last months/years no worries during a photo session.

Great budget trigger !

Works like it should !

Good, but is a replacement for same item

This item works well and has great range. I use it to trigger one of my Impact strobes which then optically triggers the rest of my flashes. This item is a replacement for the same item I purchased about 10 years ago...perhaps that is the lifetime for this product. Original item simply stopped triggering likely due to electronic failure though I was not a heavy user of the product (about 10 photo sessions per year). Regardless, this is a good product and would buy again...hopefully I'll get at least 10 years out of this one!

This is the second unit I have ordered and I am very pleased with its performance.

Great for my studio

I rent my studio out to other photographers, instead of leaving out my pocket wizards or godox triggers. I bought these little guys. They attach straight to the strobes power cable and into the light. I have a few back ups also. Great for beginners that need something to plug and play.

Great gadget to have for studio

Work great with my strobe lights. The receiver can plugin directly to the power which makes it much better than the battery-powered unit.

Does the job

I use these on my White Lightening lights and it is wonderful not having a pc cord running from one light to the camera. Nobody need to be tripping over pc cords!! I would recommend this trigger highly.

Easy to Use!

Bought this because I wasn't sure how long the cable was for the light kit I ordered and didn't want to feel tethered. Super easy to set up and worked right away with my camera. Picked it up on sale for a great price too!

question

Hi I recent bought the impact power trigger system, works well mounted on my D5100 Nikon, but if I use my ab 700 flash and trigger off camera, sync cord does not plug into camera...why? How do I solve this?
Asked by: riaz e.
The Powertrigger 16 Channel AC Transmitter and Receiver Set is only for use with studio flashes since it relies on an AC connection to power the receiver.

question

I have a set of Photogenic strobes (from the early '90's). Will this work with Photogenic strobe models from that time frame?
Asked by: Steve
If your Photogenic strobes use the standard IEC power cable and has either a 1/8 (3.5mm) miniphone sync terminal or 1/4 headphone sync terminal, then yes, the Impact PowerTrigger 16 Channel AC Transmitter and Receiver Set would be compatible for use with your strobe units.
