Important Safeguards

When using this flash equipment, include the fol-

lowing safety precautions.


Read and understand ALL instructions and
specifications before using your Dynalite


Care must be taken when handling the flash
heads as injury could occur from touching the
modeling lamp(s) or flash tube(s).


Do not operate a power pack or flash head
with a damaged cord or if the unit has been
dropped and is visually damaged.


If an extension power cord is necessary, a
suitable current rating should be used. Cords
rated for less than 15 amps may overheat.


Care should be taken to arrange the cord so
that it will not be tripped over or pulled from
the electric source outlet.


Unplug the power pack from the electrical
outlet when not in use. NEVER yank the cord
to pull the plug from the electrical outlet.


Let flash heads cool completely before putting
them away. Loop flash cables in an 8” to 10”
diameter coil when storing.


DO NOT allow power cord(s) or flash head
cable(s) to hang on or touch hot surfaces.


To avoid electrical shock hazard, power cord
(s) or flash head cable(s) must be properly
grounded. DO NOT attempt to disassemble
the power pack. Incorrect reassembly could
cause an electrical shock hazard when a power
pack is subsequently used. Take it to a quali-
fied Dynalite Service technician when service
is required.


When the power pack is not in use for one
month or more, it is wise to periodical plug
the power pack in and turn it ON for a couple
of hours. It is not necessary to operate a flash
head during this “idling” time.
