Hi Guys,

Anyone know the pin configuration for the preston mdr 2 to aaton xtr run cable.

The aaton end is 2 pin lemo which is obvious, but im not sure which pins on the 12 pin lemo
at the mdr2 end.

Any ideas?

Thanks guys.

Preston MDR-2 to Aaton 2-pin Lemo should be:

Aaton Pin 1 GND to Preston Pin 1 GND

Aaton Pin 2 START (Relay Trigger)
to Preston Pin 4 Cam RUN (Active Low)

This is assuming the 12pin Lemo FGG.2B on the MDR-2 and the 2pin Lemo FAA 0S (I think) on the Aaton. You can also trigger the Aaton via the 8pin and I think also with the 6pin.

DOUBLE CHECK THE ABOVE WITH PRESTON--I WOULD.

Good luck,
Matt
