Designed to work exclusively with the Bowens Gemini Classic, R and PRO flash heads the Pulsar Tx and Trigger Card Kit enables you to operate the flash without the need for trailing sync cables The Pulsar Tx fits onto a standard camera hotshoe (Sony/Minolta will require an adapter) and locks into place with a unique 'click-lock' removing the risk of lost connections when the camera is switched from landscape to portrait. Powered by a single CR2032 battery the Pulsar Tx has a maximum range of 25m and operation is straight-forward via two push buttons, allowing full control over the 24 radio channel combinations and the test flash function. The card simply inserts into the slot on the back of the Gemini head. The new design is a significant size and weight reduction when compared with the standard Pulsar Radio Trigger.
NOTE: The Pulsar Tx unit is a transmitter only. A receiver (Rx) is required on at least one light. This can be a Bowens Pulsar Receiver Card (BW5170) if you have a compatible Bowens Gemini monolight, or a Bowens Pulsar Transceiver (BW5150) for any other type of light with a standard sync socket.
Pulsar Tx, the smallest and most robust radio trigger in its class.
This ultra-compact transmitter with its discreet ‘camera-hugging’ low profile ensures that photographers can shoot comfortably without their camera becoming unbalanced by unwieldy attachments. The Pulsar Tx features a unique new ‘click-lock’ system for attaching the unit to the camera hotshoe securely without the need for further tightening via a thumbscrew. The ‘click-lock’ holds the trigger firmly in place whether the camera is being used in landscape or portrait position – and there is no loss of connection, as with some heavier triggers. The lightweight Pulsar Tx weighs in at just 34g and is powered by a single CR2032 cell battery, the trigger’s power management system ensures long battery life by making sure that the unit is always in low-power mode until more energy is required.
Functionality couldn’t be easier! The Tx is controlled by just two simple push buttons allowing full control over the 24 radio zones and the test flash function – with no external switches there is nothing to break and nowhere for dust to collect and compromise the unit’s performance. The solid antenna adds to this durability. Channel and studio selections are indicated by a row of LED’s.
