Ultrapower UXDS-3-HED Underwater Strobe Head with DiffuserBuy Separately >
- Safe to use at a maximum depth of 197'. The battery compartment cap is secured via double o-ring seal as is the main body of the housing which also has a gasket as an enhanced barrier against water penetration. To eliminate possible leakage through the housing, Ultramax has used a simple reed switch controlled by a powerful external magnet. The battery compartment is completely isolated from the electronics in order to prevent water damage to the strobe if the compartment is accidentally opened or batteries are changed when the unit is still wet from a dive.

An optional Fiber Optic Cable Kit (#UXDS-FOC) is also available.

These trays also give you a mounting point for your camera housing and provide improved handling and balance beneath the water's surface.
