Notice Type: Product Revision Change

Product Type: DCS-100E & DCS-103E

Change Notification Summary

In an effort to improve our products, Advanced illumination (Ai) will update the wire connection layout and PCBs on the DCS-100E and DCS-103E controllers. Customers may still buy the current revision of these models until March 4th of 2019. After that time, orders for these products will be converted to their respective DCS-100E and DCS-103E REV A versions.

This revision change will simplify the connector layout by relocating the input power terminal from the top of the controller to the former reserved position at its base, allowing for both trigger and power to be oriented on one side of the controller. The top connection terminal will be removed as a result.

Additionally, the voltage regulators on the controller PCB have been upgraded to improve brightness stability at slow strobing frequencies; this upgrade should have no effect on any other controller functionality.

Please contact your Ai Sales Representative if you have any questions.
