5pin “Digital Lighting” DMX cable. Designed to carry the DMX512 digital data protocol, commonly used for stage lighting and effects equipment such as digital light controllers, consoles, dimmers, lasers and fog machines.
110ohm cable – Dual Shielded
Features 5pin XLR connectors and built from 110-ohm rated, thick 22AWG OFC copper conductors suited to carrying DMX (DMX512) digital signals. An outer BRAIDED copper shield plus inner aluminum FOIL shielding around the conductors cores ensures signal integrity and eliminates RFI and EMI interference which can result in DMX errors.
5-pin DMX Cables
Standard DMX512 protocol specifies each cable should have “two twisted pair data paths”, meaning 4 conductors + 1 ground, with 5-pin connectors. Though often only a single twisted pair (2 conductors) are utilised by DMX512 equipment, so often manufacturers have opted for 3pin XLR sockets to enable the use or regular mic cables. This has downfalls, as many mic cables do no have the shielding capabilities of rejecting interference, only “braided” shield microphones are really suitable for DMX512 signals.
