Afternoon.


I will be using the F16V3 for the 1st time this Christmas to control my lights. I will be introducing some LED moving heads and wanted to confirm what is the best adaptor to connect to the RJ45 for a 3PIN female DMX?


Would something like this work

What all did your moving heads come with?
what types of cables came with them?


If they came with a cable like this then just utilize it!



If you want the cable longer change out the RJ45 end and a longer cable.

Take a CAT cable the length you need and cut to size and then just one end to make up!


or use a connector and what ever size Cat cable you need.
5 on Amazon for around $6 USD.


The pinout for the New DMX to RJ45 cable/connector is like below.
