"B. Component Description
The strobe light consists of a xenon flash tube
mounted in a metal case, one side of which has a transparent lens.The unit also contains four energy storage capacitors which are progressively charged by pulsed DC (225V) from the control assembly unit. On application of the trigger voltage from control assembly, the capacitor rapidly discharges through the xenon tube producing a flash of white light.The capacitor peak voltage is 'set' by bleed resistors which also act as safety discharge path when power is turned off."
