During the last few days I tried in vain to locate online the base pinout of an octal xenon flash tube type STC150, like the one shown on the picture. Finally I discovered a discared box of a related but physically different device, a Velleman S106A flash tube.
On the two sides of the card I discovered the pinouts of some flash tubes including the STC150, the associated trigger transformers, plus a small table with some technical data. I upload it here so they are available to anybody interested.
|Connection diagrams for flash tubes and trigger transformers|
|Technical data for flash tubes.|
The tubes included in this data sheet are the U-style S106A, S8538, S4668 and the octal base STC150.
