gentLED-TRIGGER: IR triggering for electrical contacts.

NEW: Click here for a demonstration video!
gentLED-TRIGGER is our solution to trigger digital stills cameras and camcorders with IR capability from an external switch or relay . The unit sends a IR signal the camera uses to take a picture (or press the PHOTO button) - 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.

Here are a few applications for this device:

Make sure when ordering your switch you select the mono 2.5mm jack plug.
gentLED-TRIGGER has an internal link for sending single pulses or bursts 
of pulses to simulate continuous triggering.
