Power-DMX Hybrid


Power and 5-pol. DMX hybrid cable

One decisive factor in setting up a stage is always time. Time is money and event and PA managers are always on a tight schedule. In order to help them, CORDIAL developed the CPH DMX 1-5 PWR 1.

The hybrid cable CPH DMX 1-5 PWR 1 consists of a 1.50 mm² power cable and a balanced AES/EBU data cable. Due to the 3x 1.50 mm² conductor area and the robust, three-pole NEUTRIK® powerCON® NAC3FCA-1 & NAC3FCB-1 plugs with interlock, a current-carrying capacity of up to 18 A is achieved. In contrast to conventional powerCON® plugs, the revised plugs can be plugged under load (IEC 61984) in combination with the built-in versions NAC3MPXXA and NAC3MPXXA-WOT.

The DMX data line with 110 Ohm characteristic impedance (AES/EBU) is protected against interference from the power line. The NEUTRIK® 5-pin XLR connectors used have a three-pin assignment.

According to the DMX logic, the female XLR connector is on the controlled unit and the male connector is on the lighting console (opposite to the approach with XLR in the audio area). The powerCON® connectors are therefore designed to carry current from the lighting console to the controlled unit.

The split of the cable is 30 cm.


Attention: Do not plug powerCON plugs under load while using conventional sockets. Can be plugged under load (IEC 61984) only using NEUTRIK® NAC3MPXXA or NAC3MPXXA-WOT / NAC3NOXXB or NAC3MPXXB-WOT sockets.
