(SHELTON, CT) – The Lex Products PowerData Cable increases the ease and
convenience of device interconnection by keeping power and data cables within a
common jacket. This award-winning wiring design reduces the opportunities for cable
tangling and clutter. Combining #12/3 SJOOW and Cat5e cabling allows the PowerData
cable to support power connections up to 20 Amps and data protocols such as DMX,
RDM, sACN or Art-Net.

both power and data for operation. Power and data ‘in’ and ‘through’ connections are a
common feature of even the lowest cost device, with the express purpose of passing
power and data from one fixture to the next.
