Greetings

I recently bought a tobin crystal sync unit for my h16 SBM, and have been looking for the cable that connects this unt with the 400 ft magazine MM motor.
I tried chambless cine eq. but they re out of stock.
Does anybody have one for sale?
Any clue on where could i find one please?

Found one here:

Is this the one you have?

I could make you a cable based on the instructions for this motor.

Tobin used to charge $49 for a cable. I can do it for a little less.

Cheers,

Jean Louis:

I apreciate your atention.
I bought a TXM 20B unit, the kind that takes a jack to 4pin XLR connection.


Is it possible to adapt the MM cable to the sync unit's source?

Best regards ;)

From the TXM20B manual, it would seem you just need to convert your two pronged connector to a 5.95mm x 2.1mm locking inverted power plug or a standard 5.5mm x 2.1mm inverted power plug.
