Hi folks, been wanting to make a custom cable for my zephyr, a hirose 6pin Y split out to 4pin XLR power and composite video. my zephyr came with the DIN connector, didn't use the monitor and the cable.

I understand that from the zephyr manual it states that the receptacle is a HR10-7R-6S. does anyone have any idea which is the correct mating connector?

i was checking out the hirose website:

HR10 is the series.

the 5th character (7) represents the outside diameter, which is 7mm

the 6th character ® represents either a jack (J), plug (P), or receptacle ®

the 7th character (6) represents the number of contacts

the 8th character (S) represents the the type of terminal, (S) being female, (P) being male.

Hence ideally, the correct mating connector to fit into the zephyr would be either a jack, or a plug, and the terminal type being a male one,

ie. HR10-7J-6P, or, HR10-7P-6P.

my problem here is, i am unsure of buying either the "jack" version, or the "plug version".

my gut feeling tells me it is the "plug" version, looking at the pictures at mouser electronics.

can any operators help confirm?

thanks much!

Hi Zhong Wei,

We do make a breakout cable for this situation. It takes the 6 pin HRS ( Hirose ) connector and turns around to a BNC and 4 pin XLR for power.

It is 807-7510-02. The price is $ 290.00 USD + shipping.
Email me to try to arrange it straight through Tiffen. Where are you located?
