Situation: Years ago, somone wired our church projector with HUGE cable. It's so large, that I can't find a 15-PIN connector & shell to fit it.
So, what are my realistic options?
For years, it has sat tucked away (sort of) under the multimedia booth, but always plugged directly into the PC. In short, it was always a disaster waiting to happen, and now it has.
For now, I was able to resolder the 15-pin shell, but it's showing years of neglect and abuse and will never last. I acutally put a PVC pipe sleeve over it and duct-taped the ends to keep all movement off the cable (hope that works!)
Can I fanout the huge cable in a box or PC board connector, and then put the correct sex 15-PIN connector out to the PC? We need something that will last, and there's no budget to swap the HUGH cable (which runs probably 150-feet to the projector, and is well-shielded (which probably explains why they did that way to begin with).
Is there anything available off-the-shelf? How do you put a small connector on huge cable?? I wish I had a picture. (You would not believe it.) Thanks.
