ATTE Flashtube Extender

The ATTE goes into a Flash Head where the Flashtube normally goes and adds about an inch to the position of the Flashtube from the face of the Head. This is generally preferred when you need a different coverage from a custom reflector than the tube provides from it's normal location.
Manufacturer: Lumedyne, Inc.

You would use a Flashtube Extender if you wanted to shift the angle of coverage of the flashtube in reference to the reflector you are using.  Each one is about an inch long and it is very unusual to need more than one per Head.

The ATTE Flashtube Extender is another American made accessory built here in our Florida factory.  It is important for them to be well built because as the flashtube is getting all the voltage for each flash, a poor connection or arc here will cause problems very quickly.

If you are adapting a custom reflector or if you have specialized lighting needs then locating the flashtube differently than “stock” could be critical to getting the lighting effect you desire.

A popular example of when you use a tube extender is with the telephoto reflectors from Norman™ or Quantum™ which work fine on the Lumedyne Heads.  In comparison to the normal Lumedyne reflectors, the smooth hyperbolic shape of the telephoto variety pushes the light forward mostly in a more narrow beam of light, but it is an f-stop brighter with about 35 degrees coverage.  If you further add a Flashtube Extender then the resulting “bright part” of the coverage is narrowed to just 15 degrees but then it’s a second f-stop brighter than the normal 60 degree reflectors we use.  Note: Both those reflectors each include an extender when they are bought new however the Norman version can’t fit our Modeling Heads without drilling the center out first.

Another example is when the ABRA Bowens™ Reflector Adapter is used with a large beautydish.  Our flashtube would be all the way at the back of the reflector, (like theirs would be too) but if you wish that you could use more of the walls of the reflector, then you use an ATTE to move the flashtube forward into a better focal point for the whole reflector.

The ATTE has a hole in the center to accommodate the two legs that power and hold the modeling bulb for Lumedyne Heads.  However, the modeling bulb should be removed and not typically used together with the ATTE.  Leave the white insulating sleeves and the rest of the modeling apparatus alone, it fits in the hole.  Simply remove the modeling bulb while using the ATTE.

ABRA Bowens™ Reflector Adapter for Lumedyne Heads

The ABRA replaces the normal Lumedyne reflector and has a mounting plate that allows the use of any Bowens™ style reflector or accessories. It has a 1/4-20 mounting point to keep the weight of large light modifiers off of the plastic body of the Lumedyne Heads. There is a spring clip to lock the Bowens™ style reflector/accessory in place.

ACCX Two Red Head Jack Covers secured together

The set of two red covers for the Head jacks are secured together by a short nylon line. There is enough length between them to also go through the D-ring and stay secured to the Power Pack. These are similar to the individual covers that most people eventually lost that came standard on the Classic Packs or the ones attached to the front of the modern Packs.

AFSQ 2400ws Quartz Flashtube for Standard non-modeling Flash Heads

AFSQ 2400ws Quartz Flashtubes fit all of the standard Flash Heads such as the Classic #001 and #002 Heads that had no modeling light feature. They also fit the new Extra Small Basic Heads HSBC or HSBQ. This is a super duty flashtube for high power or Action Packs' fast flash duration. The Flashtubes push/pull straight in/out and they will last for tens of thousands of flashes or one face down fall onto a hard surface. Any of the Heads that have a modeling light would use the AFTE instead of this one.

ASC1 Standard Household to PC Sync Cord

The ASC1 is the short coiled sync cord that would plug from the round sync jack on many professional cameras to the household sync jack on many Lumedyne Flash Heads. It is about two feet long before stretching the coils out and could reach almost five feet (but might not shrink back all the way if stretched too far).
