AC ADAPTER 3

Having 2 output plugs, this adapter operates off AC house current to power the T Power Control 1 and the illuminator built into the T10 Ring Flash 1 (both at the same time or either one). It can also be used to power the Winder 2 (or 1)/Electronic Flash T32 (or T20) combination.

Attention

  1. Do not use with any apparatus other than those enumerated above.
  2. Insert each plug firmly into the socket terminal. To remove, hold the plug tightly and pull. Do not pull or strain the cord.
  3. Do not use the unit for hours on end. Unplug the AC cord when you have finished your work.
  4. Do not put flammable substances on the unit while in use.
  5. With flash units: (i) Do not remove the plugs when taking pictures. (ii) When the T10 and Power Control are powered simultaneously, the flash charging time will become longer and the illuminator less bright than when powered separately.
  6. Do not tamper with terminals, nor let the unit strike against hard objects. If it needs repair, do not try to do it by yourself, but by an Olympus service center.
  7. Do not use or store in a place exposed to high temperatures, high humidity and splashes.
