ELE79x DataFire

Designed specifically for the installation market, the elektraLite DataFire is intended to make hard‐wire DMX runs faster to install, as well as give more flexibility in the field.

Using a two‐piece terminal euroblock, installers can quickly run DMX cable from splitters and through conduit, and then easily adapt to a 5‐pin XLR connector to start a fixture data run using the elektraLite DataFire adapter.

The euroblock is a solderless connector that uses screw terminals to clamp connecting wires. Once the wires are installed, the entire assembly is plugged into a matching socket on the DMX cable. DataFire is more convenient than the terminal strips they replace as the signal cables can be quickly disconnected from or connected to the hard wire connection, rather than unscrewing and re‐screwing, or soldering, each wire individually.

    Do you guys make a 5 pin male XLR to a 5 pin euroblock connector?
    I have a bunch of shure mx396c dual mics and need to put 5 pin male xlr ends onthem, but I do not want to solder them. Need to use both mic elements and the control side too.
