Archer 1 - Pin Outs
Posted 01 August 2012 - 03:11 PM
Does anyone know what the Lemo 8 Monitor cables pin-outs are on a stock Archer 1?
I'd like to have a cable made to power other monitors.

I had a custom breakout box made up for my Archer 1 so I could power and send signal to other monitors and have tally light on top of the monitor. I had it wired from the 8 pin lemo socket like this (most of this was taken from the pinouts in the Archer 2 manual, so double check with that to make sure I haven't made a mistake):
1. Power Ground
4. Video Ground (also tally -ve)
6. Tally +ve
I had this internally wired in the breakout box to have video out on BNC, power out on 4pin XLR and a 3 pin XLR for tally. I then just made up my own cable with some LEDs connected in series to the 3 pin XLR and it all works nicely.
Hope that helps

Sweet, Thanks for the info. Making a break-out box is a great plan.
I'll let You know what I end up with.

I was able to order the correct Hirose Din plug from DigiKey and make a Tally cable for my Archer 1.
For anyone esle who has always wanted that red LED on your stock 7" monitor to work, here's the part number.
Digi-Key Part ---- HR212-10P-8P (71) , Cost was $9.06 USD
Once you get the plug just solder a photocell to pins 7 and 1 as listed in the above posts. The photocells can be purchased at any hobby shop . In the States just go to Radio Shack and get a 5 pack for $3.

Then wanted to make a cable for the bottom 8 pin lemo to have a 3 cable break out of it with 4 pin XLR, BNC composite and TALLY LED to velcro on the monitor.... how would you wire it? I'm having a bit of trouble getting this done.

Does that make sense?
