Rt-angle V3 power cable?
« on: June 05, 2003, 10:51:14 AM »
Is there a a company making a power connector for the v3 that is a right-angle?  i have the eco-charge 6v cable and it's basically shredding right behind the plastic housing.  I've wrapped it in electrical tape and it works, but i'm going to have to get a new one.  My other cables behind there are now rt-angles, so the pressure of the entire box when it's stood up is on the power cable.  not good.   :(

any help appreciated.

Same problem here, Damon.  FWIW, it's a Switchcraft locking connector, part #S760K.  Switchcraft doesn't carry a right-angle version, and I couldn't find a similar but shorter or right-angle connector anywhere.  So...here's what I did:

I ended up just hacking the S760K connector:

[1]  disconnected the wire from the connector
[2]  cut the black protective housing so it was no longer than my right-angle XLRs
[3]  cut the 2 internal pins to fit the black protective housing
[4]  re-soldered
[5]  taped the wire coming out of the housing securely to the housing so it doesn't stress the connections inside the housing

Works great so far.  It's a little sloppy, so I'm going to re-do it with a new S760K connector.  I may have an extra S760K lying around if you want to give it a go but don't want to hack apart your existing connector (like I did).

thanks for the suggestion, Brian, i'm gonna try and hack mine up since it's basically useless anyway  :P  do you happen to have a picture of what you did?

we'll see how it goes.

If you found the pin polarity of the supplied connector, I would assume there are other companies that make the same dia connector.  Usually they are a standard size.  Once you find the pinpolarity you could solder this on to the same size right angle. Just get some specs and search rat shack.

The pin polarity's a no-brainer:  tip positive, ring negative.

Connector dimensions, known:  http://www.switchcraft.com/products/pdf_files/jack-146_schematic.pdf

The S760K isn't one of the common DC-plug connectors found in most portable consumer electronics gear (like the Sony portables, for instance).  The primary difference is the locking ring.

There seem to be many fewer options for locking connectors, this one included.  So far, I've tried 10 manufacturers / distributors, none of whom carry a right-angle S760K equivalent.  Hence, my hack.

Some things the polarity is reversed.  But yes 9 times out of ten the pin is +.  I thought this was true at all times until I fried some RC truck components. Better to be safe than sorry.  I realize a locking connector is preferred, but couldn't you rig something up if you wanted the 90 that bad??  How about a little velcro strap to hold it in place. Put in the connector (should have some resistance) and strap over a piece of velcro taped or glued to the unit??? They really should have just gone with the old XLR's though.  Come on guy's, you built a case out of shevling for the old frying pans... :)

i am thinking about going with a non-locking right-angle connector.  if the unit is resting on the jack, there really isn't much need for the screw-on lock.  plus, you're right, i could always just velcro it or tape it on.

I have a right angle battery cable purchased through Pro Dig.  It works fine based on Damon's theory probably 85% of the time.  To insure it works properly, I just run a piece of transparent tape over hit to hold it in place.  I started doing this after noticing power outs on the V3 if the bag was bumped.

I've never been able to figure out why anyone would make the ring positive.  But yeah, sometimes that's the case.  Like the UA5 - it's ring is positive, tip negative.  Someone here or the Oade board fried some stuff because of it.

And you're absolutely right - it should be easy enough to use a non-locking connector and rig it securely into place with tape or velcro or some such.  My personal experience with tape isn't stellar, though, largely through my own fault.  Tape stretches and I'm not always diligent enough about replacing it as it wears.  Similar deal with velcro - I've found I have to check/adjust it constantly, and often forget, then...nudge the bag and bang, no power.

It works fine based on Damon's theory probably 85% of the time.  To insure it works properly, I just run a piece of transparent tape over hit to hold it in place.  I started doing this after noticing power outs on the V3 if the bag was bumped.

Erik - Works 85% of the time with or without the tape holding it in place?  I hope it works 100% of the time with the tape in place!

Yes I did think about the fact that it could rest on the connect and agree that it would probably work 80% of the time. Its making it 100% reliable that is key.

100% of the time with tape in place.  I also just e-mailed Ed @ Kindcables to see if he might work on a right angle, locking solution for us.  I will post when I hear back from him.

Okay, that's what I though, Eric.  If only I had better mental diligence, I wouldn't have had to hack my connector!  lol  I'll still post pics though in case anyone's interested...

Why not eliminate one of the AES connectors and replace it w/ an xlr 4 pin power connector?  Maybe Grace can do this as a mod?

I wish it had an XLR power cable like the V2, and your idea is certainly an option, but probably more hassle/$$$ than it's worth when it's pretty easy to hack the locking connector or rig a non-locking connector.  I may send mine off for the optical ouput mod if they start offering it, though.

i spoke to Jamie about that. he said that the AES would not be mod'd for an XLR power in bc they want that for high-bit output and also, they considered XLR power bc that is how the V2 is and they didnt have room. they also said that when the future mods come out, they have to put them somewhere, and it has to do with the inside of the box, the cards n stuff, as much, if not more, than the outside locations. he said that a right angle connector for the current DC power port isnt really a current concern for them. fwiw. and i am paraphasing from our earlier conversation

it doesn't surprise me that they don't care about the right angle deal.  besides i think most of us bought the eco-charge connector, so maybe we can talk to those guys about making one.  i'm not sure if y'all's experience with eco-charge has been the same but everytime i call eco-charge, i get a lot of attitude from the guy.  when i got my v3 i was thinking about getting the 12v version since i have a d10 and it might've made sense to have two 12v devices for powering options.  he said, "what the hell do you want a 12v v3 for?"  thanks, helpful.  in the end, i decided on the 6v version, but i bought it from masterpiece and not them.  plus, i've actually gotten better prices on eco-charge stuff from other dealers than the price they quote me.

I never tried Ed at KK because according to the people at Ecocharge (who I'm becoming more and more convinced are total dickwads), there is no other connector that may be reliably used other than the switchcraft model due to the port's construction.  the guy was a total ass about it on the phone.  anyways, i'm not sure what i'm gonna do, i have hacked up my old cable yet and i've stopped using right angle xlr's so that not all of the weight of the box and strain ends up on the power connector alone.

I never heard back from Kind Kables - Ed is usually pretty good about returning calls or e-mails unless he is out at shows.  Maybe someone can try Pro Dig and see if he could make a custome one?  He made custom battery cables for my V2 and AD2K a couple of years ago.

Sorry to bring this back up (I just read it), but I feel the same way you do. That guy at eco charge is a total DICK! I had a conversation with him a while back and it came to the point where we were literally talking shit to each other. His got major attitude issues! I felt like reaching through the phone and punching him in the face! Sorry yall, but I had to vent. I've been holding that on in for a while now.

Forgot about this for a few days.  Pics of my hacked V3 power cable.  Easy job:  

[1]  cut black connector barrel
[2]  trim the internal pins
[3]  resolder cable
[4]  tape cable to remaining connector barrel to prevent stress

Easy peasy.  The black goo you see in pic #1 is just residue from the "liquid electrical tape" I used instead of shrink wrap to protect the solder joints inside the barrel.

so what would he then charge, $30? still a great value!

i wouldnt want him to do it for my application, i only need about 16", so i would hack the cable anyways, and i can put my own end on it, fwiw.

but thanks for the update.......send pics as soon as you get one!

i can envision it due to the very graphic nature of your description.  i may do the same with mine since the heat shrink is now coming undone due to bending it at a 90* all the time since it's upright in my bag.  pics would be nice to see if it is as i think it is.

good work, thanks for the info, mike

I did not shorten the length of the black handle. Load can be born on the end of the plug w/out affecting the cable.

IMO, this only alleviates half the problem - stress on the wire.  The other half of the problem:  load on the connector.  I personally do not want the weight of the V3 bearing on my S760K, even with the wire re-routed.  It's bound to stress the male connector and the female connector, taboot.  Still asking for trouble in my book.  Pretty nifty explanation, Mike - let us all know how it works out after you've used it in the field.

Please connect the xlr and then measure the distance from the back of the V3 case to the furthest point in depth with the Neutrik 90* xlr. Please post this measurement. I'm really curious to see how deep this is. (thanks)

My hacked ghetto power cable comes in at around 22mm, plenty of room to spare.  For digital outs, I'm running RA XLR > coax out right now.  Next step: same right angle RCA connector as Mike so I have 2 reliable digi-outs (currently using an unreliable RA RCA adapter, complete POS).

off power topic;

Switchcraft 90*r.a. cable end that I used for Canare coax s/pdif cable.
http://www.switchcraft.com/products/534.html

Hey Mike --

Can you tell me how far the RA coax connector comes off the back of the V3?  You know, from the face of the V3 backplate to the longest point of the connector.

I checked the SW specs, but...it doesn't seem to tell me.  It tells me how far it is from the housing around the plug (that would butt up against the V3s backplage) to the *middle* of the connector, but not to the end.  WTF?

Thanks.

Its not as short as yours at 22mm, but it still is shorter than the profiles of the xlrs around it.
I could have gone shorter, but I wanted a base as large as possible to apply the "warm melt glue finish" for cable strain rellief.

I went shorter than necessary - a couple mm longer would be better, I think.  Not as messy a hack job.  I like your glue idea, I'm gonna give that one a go one of these days.

Now I need to rework the mic connects and create an aes cable. :banging head: :bigsmile:

At least you're not having to hose around with the MMe!!   :P

I have nothing but time on my hands, and I'm always looking for a new project.  If I were to make up a bunch of these RA power cables, with an inline fuse and a 4-pin neutrik on the other end, would yall be willing to buy them from me?  

I'd be willing to give them to the TS.com guys to try out, let me know improvements, and so on, but if you like it you have to cover the cost of parts for me ;).

Any interest in trying some of my hack jobs out?  I'd like to know before I order the parts...
