AF 080C Ring Flash help needed: wiring/pinout

Can someone tell me the wiring or pinout for the connecting cable of the Pentax AF 080C legacy ring flash unit?

To be precise, I need the pinout on the plug that comes from the ring flash and plugs into the control unit on top of the camera. It is shaped like the letter 'U' and has four pins in symmetrical layout:

top left - top right
bottom left - bottom right

Which pin does what?

Any help is highly appreciated!

Many thanks,
