DMX out on the Hub is wired how to a XLR dmx plug?
« on: December 08, 2014, 05:27:48 PM »
Picked up three of Ray's 12v RGB DMX floods, they have a 3 pin pigtail for the signal, and I am wondering what is the layout from a CAT 5 from our DMX out on the hubs so I know how to wire up a cable.

So no need to wire the common ground to pins 7/8 (white with brown and brown)?  (I'm actually asking from a F16v2 perspective but guessing the use of pin1, white with orange strip, for dmx+ and pin2, orange, for dmx- has not changed).

Ground is not provided in the RJ45 outputs of many/most DIY boards.

I believe that the F16V2 does provide a ground on DMX 2, 3 and 4 (but not on DMX 1)
