CyberSync™ Transceiver

  • all-digital transmitting receiver (“transceiver”)
  • for use with the Cyber Commander™ to control all parameters
  • receives signals to control / adjust and transmits status
  • can be used with the CST Trigger Transmitter for wireless firing
  • currently only for use with the Einstein™
  • 60-Day Absolute Satisfaction Guarantee
  • 2-Year Factory Warranty
The CSXCV transceiver (transmitting receiver) is designed for second-generation Paul C. Buff, Inc.™ flash units, fitting in the CSXCV transceiver receptacle located on each unit (currently only compatible with Einstein™ flash units). Such units do not contain the RJ11 telephone-style analog remote jacks (required for use with the CSR+ and CSRB+ receivers) and the CSXCV module forms an all-digital interface from CST transmitters and Cyber Commander™.

The CSXCV module is powered by the host light unit with frequency and channel selection also performed by the host lighting unit. This makes the CSXCV module truly plug-and-play, unleashing the full power and accuracy of a sophisticated all-digital remote control system.

The CSXCV receivers facilitate adjustment of flashpower and other parameters when used with the Cyber Commander™ transmitter. When signaled by the CST Transmitter, the receivers will only serve to fire the units to which they are attached.

With the CyberSync™ system, the CSXCV transceiver is connected to the flash unit(s) in your setup and requires a transmitter at the camera position. As the CSXCV has a drop-in connection for second generation Paul C. Buff™ lights, it is currently only compatible with the Einstein™ E640 flash unit.

The CSXCV receivers are compatible with both the CST Trigger Transmitter and the CC Cyber Commander™. The CSXCV receivers, however, can only receive cues to fire from the CST. With the Cyber Commander™, they can receive commands for firing, flashpower adjustment and control of all other parameters.

For a complete setup that cues firing, flashpower adjustment and control of all other parameters, you will need one Cyber Commander™ transmitter at the camera position and one receiver (either CSXCV, CSR+ or CSRB+) for each light in your setup.

For a triggering setup, you will need one transmitter (either the CST or the Cyber Commander™) and at least one receiver (CSR, CSRB, CSR+, CSRB+ or CSXCV). When just one receiver is used, other units in the setup can be fired simultaneously via their built-in slave trippers. If you will be working in an environment where other photographers and flashes can inadvertently trip your lights, you can use one receiver for each light in the setup. You can mix receivers in your setup (using one CSR, one CSRB+ and one CSXCV, for example) - you will simply need to ensure that all receivers are set to the same frequency.
