I have an RJ45 to DMX (5-pin XLR) adapater cable, and want to know what the pinout is between the two.
The pinout for the adapter is as follows:
|XLR Pin||RJ45 Pin||DMX Function|
|2||2 (White)||Data 1 Minus|
|3||1 (Green)||Data 1 Plus|
|4||6 (Yellow)||Data 2 Minus|
|5||3 (Orange)||Data 2 Plus|
(RJ45 Pins 4 and 5 are unused.)
Note that this is a different style of connection than DMX over CAT5 cable.
