Interconnect Cables

The CAB6BC Cable / Battery Clip Assembly Kit is made up of a CAB6L-12 Interconnect Cable that is only partially assembled. The RED and Black wires are loose in the kit, and may be snapped into the connector to create a standard CAB6L-12 for use with an ES236LH Dual Sequential Stagerô or an ST236LH Dual Timer in Low Current Mode to connect to an On-Off Switch and to two Igniters or Deployment Charges. Also in the kit is a 6 inch Premium 9 Volt Size Battery Clip doubled up with 12 inch BLACK and RED wires, and with connector terminals added. It is used with the ES236 or ST236 in High Current Mode to connect to an External 9 Volt Size Battery, an On-Off Switch, and to two Igniters or Deployment Charges.

These cables have a 6-pin locking Molex type box connector at one end, and six prestripped color-coded leads.

The CAB5BC Cable / Battery Clip Assembly is a kit made up of a CAB5-12 Interconnect Cable with the middle RED wire missing, and a 6 inch Premium 9 Volt Size Battery Clip with one connector terminal added. It is used with the ES231 Series of Stagers and the ST231 Series of Timers. In Low Current Mode the cable is used as is to connect to an On-Off Switch and to an Igniter or Deployment Charge. In High Current Mode the Battery Clip BLACK lead snaps into the cable connector so that an External Battery can be used to furnish high current.

The CAB5/6-xx Interconnect Cable Assemblies plug onto several Adept devices for connecting to an ON-OFF switch and to two deployment charges. These cables have a 5-pin Molex type box connector at one end, and six prestripped color-coded leads. Five wires come out of the connector, but the middle RED wire is immediately spliced to a second RED wire. Two RED wires are available, so there is no need to deal with one RED wire as a common wire to two different igniters or deployment charges. These cables may be use with the newer ALTS2 Altimeter and DDCS2 Dual Deployment Controllerô, the ALTS82 Altimeter, and the older ES236 Dual Sequential Electronic Stagerô.

The CAB2-xx Interconnect Cable Assemblies plug onto various Adept devices such as the older versions of the ALTS1 Altimeter with Apogee Deployment for connecting a single igniter or deployment charge.

The CAB2-xx cables may also be used with several Adept products to connect to a remote ON-OFF switch. Some Adept products (older ALT05, ALTIM1, older ALTS1, older ALTS2, OBC2, PST440, RAS2) have a three-pin connector for turning on the power. A shorting jumper is plugged onto the upper two pins of the connector to power up the device. When the device is turned off, the shorting jumper is "stored" on the lower two pins.

 

 

The 2-pin connector of a CAB2-xx cable may be plugged onto the power control pins (top two pins) in place of the shorting jumper. The two leads of the cable then connect to the remote power switch, or pull-pin turn-on device, etc. These cables have a 2-pin Molex type box connector at one end, and two prestripped color-coded leads.

CAB2-12 Cable Assembly, 2 leads, 12-inch length: $2.25

CAB2-24 Cable Assembly, 2 leads, 24-inch length: $2.75

CAB2-36 Cable Assembly, 2 leads, 36-inch length: $3.39

The CAB2-xxD Interconnect Cable Assemblies are primarily used as disconnects between rocket stages or sections. They are made up of a CAB2-xx Interconnect Cable, and an equal length of dual #24 solid conductor wire (making the total length of a CAB2-24D 48 inches for instance). These disconnect wires are prestripped one-half inch on the ends, and plug into the box connector of the CAB2-xx. The connection forms a good slip-disconnect joint that is very sound electrically, but readily slips loose when pulled.

CAB2-12D, CAB2-12 Cable with 12-inch disconnect leads: $3.39 Picture of CAB2-12D

CAB2-24D, CAB2-24 Cable with 24-inch disconnect leads: $4.25

CAB2-36D, CAB2-36 Cable with 36-inch disconnect leads: $4.99
