Default E-10 with a Sunpck 611

I have a Sunpak 611 that I wish to use with my E-10. I wonder what the trigger voltage is for either. One site showes the 611 as using 4v. but that seems a bit low for a early 80's strobe.

I think that it would be best for you to measure the trigger voltage of the flash. As you say, the flash is pretty old and most people who have that model probably have a newer design.

That being said, The E-series is suppose to be able handle any trigger voltage. There have been at least a couple of posts on the dpreview forums of people getting a response from Olympus stating that the E's are protected from high trigger voltages. I think people have reported trigger voltages of several hundred volts not causing any problems.
