These DMX 5-pin XLR to XLR cables are made using Canford's HST110, high performance extra-flexible twisted twin conductor, helical screened cable, with an impedance of 110/120 ohms specifically designed for transmission of AES/EBU digital audio and DMX lighting control signals.
They also come fitted with Red XLR coding rings to denote DMX wiring.
Each individual cable is described in detail by the use of an abbreviated sequence in the form:
Canford Cable - 1st connector - 2nd connector - cable type - cable length - cable colour.
Detailed specifications for the connectors and cables are given in their appropriate entries elsewhere. All XLR connectors are solder connection type, not IDC. Abbreviations used in the descriptions are as follows:
|Neutrik XLR 5-pin female connector 41-051
|Neutrik XLR 5-pin male connector 41-052
|Canford HST110 cable 30-110
Note: This range of cables comes fitted with 100mm lengths of clear heat-shrink sleeving on the cable as standard, to enable fitting of labels by users. The un-shrunk sleeve can easily be cut off if not required. Cable lengths and the number of sleeves is outlined below:
|0.5 - 1m
|1.5 - 3m
|4 - 30m
Various DMX adapters are available. See DMX adapters.
