Important Safeguards

When using your photographic equipment, basic safety precautions
should always be followed, including the following:
1. Read and understand ALL instructions.
2. DO NOT touch the model lamp(s) or flash tube(s) as an injury could


3. DO NOT operate the equipment with a damaged, cord or if the

equipment has been dropped or damaged, until the equipment has
been checked by an authorized service station.

4. Care should be taken to arrange the flash head cable(s) so that it

will not be tripped over or pulled out.

5. When not in use, unplug the power pack from the electrical outlet.

Never yank the cord to pull the plug from the outlet. Grasp the
plug and pull to disconnect.

6. Let the flash heads cool completely before pulling away. Loop

head cable(s) in an 8” to 10” diameter when storing.

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


8. To avoid electrical shock hazard, do not disassemble equipment,

take it to a qualified service station when service or repair is re-
quired. Incorrect reassembly could cause an electrical shock haz-
ard when the equipment is subsequently used.

9. DO NOT use locking rings at power pack end of the extension ca-


10. The use of a properly grounded AC outlet is recommended. Fail-

ure to do so could result in electrical shock hazard.

11. DO NOT attempt to remove the flash tube assembly or the model

lamp without first allowing them to cool. After cooling, unplug the
flash head from the power pack and remove flash tube assembly
and / or model lamp.

12. When attaching and removing flash head accessories, slide the

metal spring clips on and off one at a time. This will facilitate ease
of use for all accessories.
