Constructing a Power & Control Cable by hand

Refer to the following when constructing a Power & Control Cable by hand without using the supplied one.

A: Molex connector

B: Molex crimp terminal

C: Lead wire

D: Connector compatible with the device to be connected

Construction procedure

  1. Crimp the crimp terminal (B) to the lead wire (C) using a Molex crimp jig.
  2. Attach the crimp terminal made in step 1 to the connector (A).
  3. Repeat steps 1 and 2 depending on the number of pins to be used.
  4. Connect the attachable connector (D) to the device to be connected.

Information on the parts used in the supplied Power & Control Cable

A: Made by Molex/430250600

B: Made by Molex/462355001

D: Made by SMK/LGP0038-0100F


  • Use a connector and crimp terminal compatible with Molex Micro-Fit 3.0 6 pin (430450622).
  • Use a gold-plated crimp terminal.
  • Be sure to connect to the power (+)/GND (-)/FOCUS/TRIGGER/EXPOSURE terminal correctly. If you connect to the wrong terminal, there is a risk of malfunction, smoking or fire, etc.
  • The usable voltage range is DC 10 V – 18 V (on the terminal side of the camera body). Calculate the impedance so as to be within this range and construct a cable.
