I've scoured over *both* 530Cx's and I can't find anything remotely resembling a PC socket on the bodies - outside of the SCA connector. The 150 Sonnar I have doesn't have any electrical connection to the body ... so?
One great danger with most synch cords is that they will fit a standard two-prong 110v outlet ... and if that happens there will be the classic blue flash -- but there won't be much doubt about synchronization. One of the major reasons for choosing Dyna Lites is their three-prong plugs on their synch cords.
Heavy use with older Studio Flash units with high synch voltages (actually it is te current that matters) will erode the synch system - that should result in intermittent operation rather than "timing" problems - but who knows - anything is possible and that word "should" is a big one.
