This is a Xenon Flash tube driver board and consists of a high voltage AC to DC converter circuit, a DC storage capacitor, a trigger circuit that will fire the xenon lamp, an Optocoupler to control the flashes etc. The circuit requires 220VAC and trigger pulse which should be between 3V to 5V. The input trigger pulse is optically isolated and can be interfaced with Arduino or other circuits. The circuit works well with a 2Hz to 10Hz trigger frequency.

Note: The board operates at lethal voltages and has bulk capacitors that store significant charge, even when disconnected from the power source. Accidental contact can lead to lab equipment damage, personnel injury, or may be fatal. Please be exceptionally careful when probing and handling this board. Always observe normal laboratory precautions.

The project can be tested with simple Arduino code which is available as download. Connect the D4 pin to trigger input and enjoy the magic of the flash tube.
