The B96M (male) connector interface module provides an interface between ten-pin female Cinch-Jones connectors and male Centronics-type (aka Champ) connectors. The B96F (female) module provides an interface between male ten-pin Cinch-Jones connectors and female Centronics-type connectors.
B96F is used with 96 In
B96M is used with 96 Out, (A)32 Out, 512 Out
The B96M and B96F are fabricated of .100 aluminum and are equipped with integral carry handles and brass cable tie bars. The dimensions are 13.25" W x 2.5" H x 8.0" D. All metal parts are finished with baked, textured, black enamel. Labeling is reverse silk screened in yellow on black.
Each Centronics-type connector is 36-pin wired to accommodate 32 dimmers. Pins 1 through 32 on Centronics-type connector rumber one carry signals for circuits 1 through 32 (Connectors two and three carry signal for circuits 33 through 64 and 65 through 96 respectively). Pins 35 and 36 are ground on all three.
Each Cinch-Jones connector is 10-pin wired to accommodate six dimmers. Pins 1 through 6 carry control signal. Pin 8 is ground. Pins 7, 9 and 10 are not used. In analog systems, consoles have female Cinch-Jones and dimmers have male Cinch-Jones.
