Does anyone know the connector brand, part number and wiring for 24 volt acessory power connectors on Arri cameras?

 

Is there any kind of standard or most used type for 24 power among the various camera brands and models, or are they all different?

 

and... is there a good source for lemo and other types of connectors for cameras?

 

Thanks!

Arri uses Fisher connectors, not Lemo. Just Google it or download the Alexa manual and look at the pin configuration.

The small three pin RS connector on the side is a fischer connector, part number S 102 A052-130+
Make sure you get the corresponding collet for it as well: E3 102.5/4.7

 

I have ordered mine before from Kensington Electronics, inc. (http://www.keiconn.com/based out of Texas. That 3 pin connector is about 40 bucks, with the collet being an additional 5. If anyone else has a cheaper source, I would love to know about it!

For Lemo connectors (used on just about every camera and rig out there) I use PEI Genesis (http://www.peigenesis.com/). They have great service, good prices, and have a warehouse just one state over from me (=fast shipping)
 

I hope that helps!

P.S. The pin out for that connector is as follows:
1) Ground

2) +24v

3) Start/Stop

Some alternate sources are Newark (http://www.newark.com/) for Fischer and Mouser (http://www.mouser.com/) for Lemo.  Always nice to have an alternate source.

 

Gotta support another Michigan boy.

"Lemo similar". That's sales speak for knock off connector and I don't know of any Lemo or Fischer knockoff that actually works well. Yes you might save a few bucks buying the knockoff but is it REALLY worth it when it doesn't work when you are working?

Buy it right the first time and save money in the long run

Knock off connector? :blink: ...This kind "Lemo similar connectors" are born like this, many users' original parts of the connector are lost or broken and find it is very difficult to purchase the original matched parts,  to meet this demand, and considering that the patent of this kind connector has expired, so we start to manufacture this kind connector, the manufacture are according to the original, that's for our customers could use this to mate the corresponding part. Our users accept it because of the high quality and the interchangable ,What's more, a reasonable price.  If you feel it is necessary, we could use the same or better material wiith the original, also cheaper than original.

Our connectors prove to be good performance in many equipments for many years.

Not sure what you mean, I find it very easy to get spare parts, I just ring up Lemo and order them, its all off the shelf. Thats a rather feeble excuse for buying fake connectors if you ask me....
