  • Datalux - VGA Cable Power is the Pin + ?

    Hey Guys,
    I have searched and couldn't find the answer to this seemingly simple questions...
    I have a Datalux LMV10 without a power cable. I am going to make my own and I need to know if the cable should be inside positive (outside negative). Is the pin on the Datalux cable positive? I looked on their website and can't seem to find that info...I found it for the S12, which says "Mates with Switchcraft model 760 jack or equivalent; barrel 2.5mm ID 5.5mm OD outside neg."


    Any help would be appreciated!

      Hello Osirisdon,
      Thanks for the response. The Datalux is intact - still in its case. The VGA cable from the case terminates in standard 15 Pin fashion, however, there's a power connector built into the top of it.
      Check this page out to see a small B&W pic of what I'm talking about:

          Hey Matty,
          Yes, that was for the 12 in. version - I wanted to make sure the 10.4 inch was the same before I go hooking it up that way and blow up my precious controller inside.

          I know outside neg. = outside negative

              Im pretty sure that the connection standard is outside negative. Wouldnt know why they would change it for this LCD

                  Thanks for checking. I figured they wouldn't change it but I'd rather not open it right now and I didn't want to blow it up when I was sure someone else out there had one and could check for me.
                  Thanks for the help!!
