AF-540FGZ won't talk with Sigma EM-140 DG

I use the Sigma EM-140 DG mounted to the lens and want to trigger a Pentax AF-540FGZ for backlight wirelessly.

Is this possible? (Without any aditional trigger/receiver)

If The Definitive Guide - Pentax P-TTL Flash Comparison is correct, then the EM-140 DG is capable of acting like a P-TTL wireless controller. Make sure the EM-140 DG is set for P-TTL and that it and your Pentax flash are using the same wireless channel.

Jim, thanks for the response. Yes it works, you can also set the power ratio between the flashes.
