9v POWERED XENON PHOTOFLASH CONTROLLER This 9v battery powered circuit is designed for remote control flash needs. A charge control circuit turns off the high voltage generator when the photoflash capacitor is fully charged. A neon lamp is included to indicate when the system is ready to flash.
LINE POWERED XENON FLASH TRANSMITTER This line-powered xenon flash circuit drives a small camera type flash tube. It has an optical isolator to allow the flash to be safely triggered from some remote device. A flash rate of 2Hz is possible with the circuit.

AIR TRANSPARENCY MONITOR, XENON FLASH TRANSMITTER This is the matching transmitter for the above receiver. The transmitter launches powerful 1000-watt light pulses that last about 20 microseconds.

12 Volt Strobe Circuit: this circuit uses12V DC instead od mains AC. This is very good idea if you dont want to mess with direct mains voltage connected circuit or you want to run the Strobe from batteries.

Adjustable Strobe Light: 120-Volt mains power source, up to20 Hz flash rate

Flash Slave Trigger: Flash slaves are used when you need to supplement1-flash unit with1-or several more. This slave trigger simply triggers those other units. It does this by "seeing" the first flash (using a phototransistor) and triggering the other flashes a few microseconds later. The sensitivity of the circuit is adjustable to compensate for ambient light or dimmer than usual master flashes.

Hacking the Kodak Max Single Flash Camera Into a Self Repeating Strobe: this approach is recommended mainly for homebrewing a strobe that is powered by a single1.5 volt battery. If you can use a higher supply voltage, there are better ways to do this.
