Olympus Ps200 Flash

I have come across a PS 200 Flash unit - I believe they were used on Olympus Trip cameras. Is it safe to use this flash on a Pentax K-X ?

Is it this unit?

If so, why bother? Its GN is 14 (meters), about the same as the built-in flash.

Thanks for that and the rest of the flash info. I was more interested whether the old 35mm camera flashes are safe to use. I also picked up a Sunblitz 116 which is a bit bigger. ASA goes from 24 - 400 DIN from 15 - 27 and has ranges of 12 mtrs - 36ft. I am new to DSLR's so I know pretty much "nothing".

Its trigger voltage appears to be 185V, but why not measure it and make sure for yourself?

I generally use the Botzilla website for this info:
Photo Strobe Trigger Voltages

Not that the Sunblitz is listed...
