Converting XLR 5-pin to 4-pin

Recommended Posts

I have a Arri 2c motor cable that has a XLR 5-pin connector.

I disassemble the 5-pin connector and find pin 1 and pin 4 are connected to the wire.

Do I just un-solder the wires at pin 1 and pin 4 and re-solder them to 4-pin connector respectively? Or is there any change need to be made?

I don't want to burn the motor so I need someone who knows this.

 

Thanks a lot!

As long as you're sure whatever's coming down the 4-pin XLR is rated respectively it shouldn't be an issue. Buzz the cores out and test for positive polarity with a multimeter before plugging it in, better safe than sorry with power.
