Fiber Optic Adapter (1st Gen)

Discontinued September 2014
Product Number 4401

This product is no longer in production and we have no remaining new, blemished, or used inventory. Please use replacement Product Number 4401.1. We continue to provide maintenance and service for this product even though it has been discontinued.

Converts the electrical bulkhead of any Ikelite DS strobe into a fiber optic port.

This product has been replaced by the Fiber Optic Converter, Product Number 4401.1, which features heightened sensitivity for use specifically with SEA&SEA or Nauticam housings with internal electrical-to-optical flash triggering devices. The original Fiber Optic Adapter, Product Number 4401, is not sensitive enough to trigger reliably with these LED slave devices. Please contact us or your local Ikelite dealer for possible upgrade opportunities.

The Fiber Optic Adapter (1st Gen), Product Number 4401, is usable with most systems where the strobe is triggered by the camera's built-in flash.

For fiber optic AND remote slave triggering of DS strobes directly off of a camera's built-in flash we recommend the Optical Slave Converter, see below.

The Fiber Optic Converter automatically configures itself for compatibility with both pre-flash and non pre-flash camera modes. No setting of small switches or confusion over number of pre-flashes. Simply turn on your strobe and take one picture to configure.

This adapter is a manual exposure (non-TTL) trigger only. The strobe's output may be adjusted using the manual power settings built into the strobe (varies by model).

An individual Fiber Optic Converter is needed for each strobe. Use of two strobes requires two Fiber Optic Converters. The Fiber Optic Converter supports DS50, DS51, DS125, DS160 and DS161 strobes.
