    I was getting frustrated with making swap over cables to run LOR controllers in a DMX universe so i made a couple of these up. After I pulled it open it was just lengths of cable in it joining one end to the other so I did some cutting and re-joining and made an adaptor so all my cables can just be made as standard straight through cables and I can pop one of these into the line when I'm joining a LOR controller in between DMX ones. Information on which pins are which when doing this can be found in this thread.

    People seem to get so confused when making custom cables, I thought a little PCB might be handy. :)

    I'll post some more details once the samples come back next week.

    Sorry to hijack your thread Steve. Thought I might save your fingers. (opening up those couplers)

    You're a glutton for punishment. I guess the roof dive proved it already though. :D

    I got them thru on of my wholesalers, I'd be fairly certain most of them would be cables inside.
