gentLED-TRIGGER is our solution to trigger digital stills cameras with IR
capability from an external switch or relay . The unit sends a IR signal the
camera uses to take a picture- in the same way a TV remote changes the channel.
The IR signal is sent from a LED on the left of the box, with a second red LED
giving indication of operation.
On the right of the box is a mono 2.5mm jack socket which can be used to switch
the unit on and off via an external switch, a relay, etc.
