This has been asked many times and unfortunately we don't have any confirmation that the Genesis lights are compatible with the PCB Vagabond II or the Tronix Explorer XT. We suspect that you won't have any problem but neither manufacturer will confirm this information. Innovatronix has plans to test both the Genesis 200 and 400 with the Explorer 1200 and XT but we're not sure when that will happen. You can pretty much be assured that if it works with one then it will work with the other but right now we just don't know for sure.
