Hello everyone,

So I have come to the point where I need more lemo ports so I can power more accessories. I think you would use a junction box in this case but Im not sure if thats what that even does. If so where should I look to purchase one?

Hi Mark,

I got a lemo 12 volt Y-cable from Tiffen. Kyle can set you up.

Hey Kris,

How many times do you think you could split a lemo port by cables. Because I would need like 4 ports not just 2 and I wouldnt want to keep adding Y splitters.

try getting a splitter box directly from Lemo, or making one up yourself. Beware of total current loads through the connectors, expecially the original one. Lemo has all the real info on their site.

Mark,

I've split 12v xlr's four times without a problem, given I had a big enough power supply.(not steadicam related). You are right, you wouldn't want that kind of gak hanging off your rig. If Kyle can't help you, he will pass you along to Robert or one of the other engineers at Tiffen.

Hey Jerry,


I looked on Lemos site and just got really confused and couldnt find the box you were talking about. Im wondering if you could send me a link?
