Archer 1 Owners

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.

Thanks

Hi,

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
2. +12V
3.Video Signal
4. Video Ground (also tally -ve)
5. N/C
6. Tally +ve
7. N/C
8. N/C

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
Phil

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

Robin and Phil

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.

If one were to have the Steadicam made Tally sensor to Hirose Din plug already and plugs it in to the top box,
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.

Wire it as the pin outs above. Make sure you connect the LEDs the right way round, as they are diodes they only work with current flowing in right direction through them, one leg of the LED is longer to signify the positive end. See that tally minus is also connected to the same pin as video ground (that's the way I did it anyway) because of this you need all the cables connected up to your monitor for the tally lights to work. Like I said I had a break out box made with a Lemo 8 pin input and a XLR4 Power Out, BNC Video out and XLR3 Tally out and the pins of these connectors were internally wired to the correct pins of the Lemo. I think I did pin 1 of the XLR3 to pin 6 of the lemo (tally +) and pin 3 of the XLR3 connected to pin 4 of the lemo (tally minus and video ground) Then I just bought a few high brightness LEDs from CPC (UK) they were 5 pence each or something and wired them in series to the associated pins of an XLR3 plug (again make sure the LEDs are the right way round). Then you use the little white dial on the side of nose of your sled to control sensitivity of the your tally sensor.

Does that make sense?
