In my project I need to trigger a Fuji disposable flash with my Arduino Uno. I got told to use a optoisolator/optocoupler to prevent damage to the board. The problem is that I do not have access to a lot of products due to my location, but what I have found is this:http://www.sparkfun.com/datasheets/Components/SMD/ild205t.pdf
Being new to electronics I not 100% sure I know what to look for, but under the "Coupler" heading it looks promising, again not 100% sure what to look for. The flash is said to give off approx. 200V, but lets say 200V to 300V to be safe, differnet websites seem to have different values for the same flash
. The flash would only be triggered once or twice every few minutes. Any other recommendations on what to use?
Thanks for the help!
