With that said, I actually prefer to run my Bartech at 24v if at all possible. It allows the motor to turn at a higher velocity, at least in my experience.
Don't quote me on it, but I think I remember Jim Bartell actually recommending that it be run at 24v for better performance. Maybe Jim will pipe in.

That said, if you will need the 24v power through the rig:
Sounds like what you have is fine. On the Archer, one of those 3 pins is 12v, another 24v. The 3pin Lemo to 4pin XLR that came with the rig is a 12v cable only, so it is wired to the 12v pin and not the 24v.
I can't be 100% certain without a little more specificity about the cables you have and where they came from, etc... Pictures would help.
The best assumption based on what you said is that it will work. But why risk unless you're sure? Jerry's right, get a cable straight from one to the other from Jim. Short of that, JP is right, just test with a multimeter first. But your first easiest test is at the top of my post.

If you put 24V into an analog BFD it will erupt in smoke.
Will it look cool at least?
