Canon 200D - digital trigger device and a K-150A light kit

Hoping someone can solve this puzzle for me. 

I purchased a K-150A light kit at a yard sale. It came with a Digital Trigger Device  - radio Flash. The plug is 0.35, 0.63cm ( the second one is an adaptor I dont really need it looks like its for old school headphones.)

It sounds like you have the receiver part of the flash trigger, this would plug into your K-150A probably using the 3.5mm plug, the adaptor is for use with older studio flashes that have a large 1/4 inch socket.

It is unlikely to be a radio trigger that would respond to a camera based radio signal (which your camera doesn't have anyway).

It is most likely to be a radio trigger that needs a transmitter in the camera hotshoe.

You could find it difficult to get a matching transmitter and will probably have to discard the flash trigger receiver and then buy a matching pair.

Be careful as some of that older stuff can damage your camera. Some of it produces voltages your camera isn't designed to handle. Just be careful.
