Powering Alexa

I'm working with an Alexa tomorrow.

 

I've just made a cable to go from the Shadow sled 24v wired to a So XLR with pin 3 in the So XLR getting the 24V and ground staying on pin 1.

 

What are people's thoughts whether this will be ok???

See here, The SO-XLR had a 4 pin 12V XLR connector since it connects to the gold mount which is 12V. This means that a higher amperage goes through the cable. It is preferred to use the 12 pin Fischer connector, which also leaves the gold mount free for a battery, allowing hot swap etc.

Sorry, I might have got confused when I said "SO XLR". I have a v-lock dummy plate that has a 12v 4 pin xlr on it. I have soldered an extra cable inside the plate to go from pin 3 of the XLR to the middle pin of the V-lock plate.

 

From the sled I have a cable to go from 3pin Lemo to 4pin XLR 24v with pin 1 ground and pin 3 24v.

 

I've tested it with a multimeter the and the output of the v-lock plate is the same as a 24v v-lock battery. I've not tested it on an Alexa yet though.

Allan,

 

Are you sure the Alexa you are using has a 24V V-Mount battery plate? You don't want to wire your V-Mount Battery Eliminator with 24V if the plate is meant to be used with 12V only.
