Hello everybody!

 

Just wanters to share this project Ive had Im my head for a while but finally came around doing today. I've installed a 2-pin lemo on what used to be a Zacuto D-tap -> LP-E6 battery adapter to be able to use standard lemo-lemo or lemo-d-tap cables when using the monitor on Alexa or Red.

 

I used the information on this page to get the polarity right:

https://mediablackou...pin-Lemo-cable-

 

The black wire goes on the red-dot input.

Handy. I assume it'll stand the higher voltage OK?

 

Atomos make similar things for their recorder-monitors, though they're usually D-tap input. They're also emblazoned prominently with an "Atomos devices only" legend, to minimise horrible, smoke-releasing mistakes.

Yeah, the regulator from the original adapter is still in there. Dont know about 24v though.. Yeah there are a lot of adapters with the cable attached, but I couldnt find one with inputs. The plan is to just habe it in there at all times, as if there was an power input on the monitor (that it should have had to begin with)

In case anyone else needs to do that, in situations like these things like this can be very useful.
