Eduardo,
I couldn't find this meter in the sekonic's site, is it an old one?
If it does flash readings, then u can measure a strobe light when u have it flash in big intervals, or you can use a simple photometer (not a flash meter) if you have your strobe running at 50 or 60 flashes per second.

Is it going to be your main light source or a secondary somewhere in the background?
If you just need the effect somewhere away of your subject, there is no problem beeing so accurate,
u can go ''by eye''.
I hope this will help you,
Dimitrios
