Notice: Be sure to follow figures two and three when making your own
cables. Do not use the ground lug on the XLR connector. Do not connect the cable’s shield conductor to the ground lug or allow the shield
conductor to come in contact with the XLR’s outer casing. Grounding
the shield could cause a short circuit and erratic behavior.

Data Cable (DMX Cable) Requirements (For DMX Operation):
The Fusion FX Bar 1 is a five channel DMX unit. The DMX address is set
on the rear panel of the Fusion FX Bar 1. Your unit and your DMX controller require a approved DMX-512 110 Ohm Data cable for data input
and data output. We recommend Accu-Cable
DMX cables. If you are making your own cables,
be sure to use standard 110-120 Ohm shielded
cable (This cable may be purchased at almost
all professional sound and lighting stores). Your
cables should be made with a male and female
XLR connector on either end of the cable. Also
remember that DMX cable must be daisy chained
and cannot be split.

unit in your daisy chain to terminate the line. Using a cable terminator
(ADJ part number Z-DMX/T) will decrease the possibilities of erratic

5-Pin XLR DMX Connectors. Some manufactures use 5-pin DMX-

fixtures may be implemented in a 3-pin DMX line. When inserting standard 5-pin data cables in to a 3-pin line a cable adaptor must be used,
these adaptors are readily available at most electric stores. The chart
below details a proper cable conversion.

and controllers. A DMX controller sends DMX data instructions from

“OUT” terminal).
