Answer: 
Nikon Digital SLR cameras can be used with third-party studio strobe systems when extra light is needed.The strobes are connected to the camera's PC connector (use the AS-15 Adapter on the D7100/ D7000/ D5100/ D5000/D3200/ D3100/ D3000/ D100/ D90/ D80/ D70/ D70s/ D60/ D50/ D40/ D40X to add this necessary connector plug) and will fire when the camera's shutter opens. If a camera has a built in sync terminal, this may be used instead of the AS-15.

No Program modes ("A" "S" or "P") can be used when using external strobes, as the camera has no way to meter or control external units.

Warning: Negative voltages or voltages over 250 V applied to the camera's sync terminal could not only prevent normal operation, but may damage the sync circuit of the camera or flash. Check with the strobe manufacturer for voltage specifications.

I bought a Studio lighting kit to use with my Nikon D3200. The D3200 does not have a sync terminal so if I use this then how does this adapter work? I understand that I attach it to the hot shoe on the D3200 but is there any other set up issues with this adapter? Also what does the term PC mean in the description Hot Shoe to PC?

Thank you for all help :)

Answer: 
A Prontor-Compur connection (also known as a PC connector) is a standard 3.5 mm (1/8") electrical connector (as defined in ISO 519) used in photography to synchronize the shutter to the flash.

You can use a PC (Prontor-Compur)sync cord to connect the AS-15 from the camera to a speedlight or Studio strobe.
Please read the information in the link below before connecting the camera to a strobe.

Dear I read that one should take care with this adapter regarding strobes that use high voltage trigger voltages and that it is not recommended to use this adapter for some flash units(f.e. ones that have more than 6V). So my question: with which flash units is it compatible? I own this adapter already but just want to be sure not to use it in the wrong way. I own the Nikon SB-900 strobe, and also two Yongnuo YN460 II speed lights. Can you help out?

Answer: 
Your obviously safe with the SB-900. The Yongnuo
YN460 have a trigger voltage of 6 volts so they should be safe. However there are never any guarantees when using third party flashes.

I need to take long exposure with D7000. Now if I want to take more than 30 sec exposure, let's say a 2-minutes exposure, I have to select Bulb and use stopwatch. The problem is getting worse when I want to take SEVERAL images of longer than 30 sec exposure images (for star trail shots, 60 shots of 2 minute exposures for instance).

I hear that MC-36A Multi-Function Remote Cord can help to cope this problem, but how to connect it with D7000/D7100? Can we attach it to AS-15?
