It's not easy to give you a yes no answer to this. I can't find what the difference is between the digital & non digital version of the CL4 however I strongly suspect that the difference is the trigger voltage. Under no circumstances should you trigger this flash using the hotshoe, you may do this using the Wein safe sync which will drop the trigger voltage.
The trigger voltage of the non digital version is around 17V which should make it safe to trigger with the PC socket directly (or so I'm told) you might want to check this. 17V is not a very high voltage so you should be OK.
Can I ask though, why did you buy a flash like this over the 'Cobra' type such as the MZ54 or even the Canon ones which offer full E-TTL and much greater power output?
