I have a customer asking if the attached cable would suffice given that it is an 3 wire DMX cable.

Hi Joseph

In the PM5100 install guide is mentioned the following cable:

RS-485 : Belden 3105A / Belden 3106A

Here is the link to the cable:

The cable that you attached seems fine with this part of the recommendation:

+, -, , C 0.33 - 3.31 mm 2 (22 - 12 AWG)
