Report Abuse

The Factory Optic Cooke /i Metadata Port to RS-232 cable uses the required Lemo 4 pin (FGB.00.304.CLAD35)  connector with special ‘B’ key for Cooke lens /i interfacing. The other end is a standard Amphenol mil-spec DSUB 9 connector, for connecting to SYNCRO-LINK or PC.

The SYNCRO-LINK provides power for lens port using pin 9 on DSUB, this is the RI pin and providing power here is allowed per the standard. When power is supplied in correct polarity, LED on DSUB shell will illuminate blue.

For lens firmware updates, cable can be used to connect to a computer’s serial port. In this setup, power can be applied to the DC jack on the rear of the DSUB shell. This takes a standard 5.5mm x 2.1mm, center positive voltage, for the voltage range of the /i port, typically 8VDC – 35VDC, 2.5W minimum.  USB serial adapter and power adapter not included.

Built in protection circuitry for lens, protects against reverse polarity on the DC jack or DSUB, has a resettable fuse to protect from excessive current being drawn from cable or lens and prevents power being drawn from lens thru the cable.

Cable is 6ft/2m long, made from shielded and rugged cable, TPU jacket with Kevlar fillers for flexibility and durability. All parts are sourced from authorized distributors in USA and cables are assembled, inspected & tested in USA.
