    I just opened up a wedge that we bought a few months ago.

    Unfortunately I discovered that the lemo plugs used on the wedge are not the standard size...

    Which is pretty silly.

    According to Freefly, it let's them achieve a slightly smaller box.

    Personally, I hate it when industry standards are ignored.
    We have a bunch of standard motors and standard motor cables. I don't really want to buy a bunch more, just to use the wedge.

    Before I sell it, I wanted to see if anyone here has made a breakout box, or cable adaptors, or even a rehousing of the wedge into a slightly bigger box, but with correctly sized plugs?

    Thanks,

    Ben

    From Freefly Support:
    The LEMO connector is not proprietary. It is a size 0 standard 7-pin LEMO also used by Redrock Micro. It was chosen, along with other considerations to make the WEDGE the smallest possible FIZ controller, optimized for gimbal use.

    Hello Ben,

    I don't think you will find what you need. I have been in search for similar thing but ended up using Wedge quite often and getting the proper cables.
