Title: LTB: Flat XLR and Drop Cord
Post by: Kevin Esprella on June 22, 2017, 06:01:09 pm
Was wondering if anyone had a good source for flat XLR/DMX cable as well as Drop Cord for speciality areas like passing under doors or along a dancefloor.

Kevin, if by "Drop Cord" you are looking for 12/3 awg cable for use as an "extension cord" or "stinger", try looking for "festoon" cable. I have some 12/5 awg festoon cable that runs to a three 20A circuit "doghouse", such as used at a trade show booth where there is heavy foot traffic.

I haven't seen a dmx-specific flat data cable, but I think that cat5 and above meets dmx-512 specifications.  (I've never looked, however.).  Happy hunting.
